” Just when I think I have seen the worst, along comes another….& of course…this heinous trauma was caused by the hands of a human. I am at a loss for any words to write, can’t see through the tears!!. I just hope whoever it was, are found quickly & dealt with the severity it deserves. Below is a copy of the welfare act, it seems 2 years & a fine will be the most punishment; no surprises there then!!”
“THE ANIMAL WELFARE ACT OF 1998 -PHILIPPINES “

“I am posting this horrific news, as this little dog needs all the help he can get. I can’t rest knowing I have done nothing to help. So I am hoping by spreading this story, people will come forward with offers of help; like prayers…they cost nothing, this little guy needs all the prayers he can get; to overcome the surgeries to repair the damage to his face!”
“Any offers of help, if people live around that area, contact those looking after Kenneth to see what you can do to help, it doesn’t always have to be about money. I’m sure there are small items like dog treats or toys for Kenneth to play with when he is better. And of course donations will be a big help, doesn’t have to be much, if everyone donated £1, it will soon add up! Using the ChipIn is very easy, I have just donated via the link below, using my Paypal account, not much, but every penny is needed for Kenneth surgeries & after care! I will try to keep you updated with news on how Kenneth is coming along! As always, anything I have to say will be in blue, the rest is from the Face Book page, link at the bottom of this page!”

UPDATE Oct 6, 2012 @ 7.45 PM PH Time (+8 GMT):
CSDCi (Cebu South Dog Club Inc.) and IRO (Island Rescue Organization Inc.) volunteers together with Kenneth’s foster owner(Jan-jan) brought him to Animal Wellness Veterinary Hospital today around 2.PM.
Dr. Guille Zialcita, the Chief Veterinarian of the hospital and one of the Lead Volunteer Doctors in IRO’s Vet Med Panel assessed Kenneth. Laboratory test results shows that he is anaemic. This is because of massive blood loss in his system. Other lab test results shows fine.
He is now confined in the hospital and in preparation for his surgery. Dr. Zialcita confirms that Kenneth’s detached body part (snout) will undergo RE-CONSTRUCTION or it can be done with RE-ATTACHMENT procedure. We the CSDCi and IRO are very thankful for all the support in monetary & those who supported via prayers.
OUR prayers were heard and Kenneth is expected to undergo the re-construction surgery Oct 8 or 9, 2012 depending on his condition.
Please help with the medical expenses to help Kenneth.

” How can one put into words, the pain that poor dog must have been in when found. I really can’t say what I want to say, not if I want to keep this account. Whoever caused that injury is one sadistic piece of sxxt, who needs locking away, asap!!!”
“When looking at the wound, it does look like a clean-cut, as if done with a machete or some type of blade. There doesn’t appear to be any ragged edges which makes me think a blade caused it. It’s not a fresh-cut either, it looks like it was done at least several days ago. WTF…how many people must this little pup have passed, looking like that, yet nobody bothered until now. I’m ashamed to be called human!!”
“I apologise now for any error’s but it’s 4.45 am in England, I can’t get Kenneth’s horrific images out of my mind, nor why anyone could do such a horrific thing like that to such a sweet pup! I can’t sleep! I’m just taking my morphine & it made me think, about how much pain Kenneth must be in…poor little guy. But I’m sure those caring for him are doing all they can to make him more comfortable. I’m just praying he has the strength & will power to overcome the future surgeries etc. Oh, I just want to give him a cuddle & tell him he will soon be more beautiful than he was before & he is going to have a wonderful loving family to take care of him; as soon as he is all better”
“Like I said, I’m going to email them, so that I will be able to keep you informed on Kenneth’s progress”
