“Surrounded by vultures…FFS…Somebody know’s this dog, PLEASE do the right thing & come forward, unless you want another dog to suffer the way Hanna has. It shouldn’t be about the money, one shouldn’t have to offer a reward of money before people will come forward with information…that just makes those who do, vultures too! God only knows what this poor girl has gone through…has nobody got a heart?”
A $1,000 reward was offered Wednesday afternoon for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person involved in Hanna’s egregious cruelty and neglect.
Had it not been for a Good Samaritan at the beginning of the week searching for another dog along Adams Run in South Carolina, who spotted the black, emaciated shepherd mix breed dog lying in a ditch surrounded by vultures, Hanna’s life would have just slipped away into painful obscurity.
That evening Michelle Reid, the director of Animal Rescue and Relief took the dog who could not stand and barely lift her head to an emergency veterinarian facility where Hanna was diagnosed as starving, dehydrated, and anaemic with both internal and external parasites. At this point, Hanna’s prognosis looks promising, however she will be re-evaluated in a few days.
Both Animal Rescue and Relief and Furlife German Shepherd Rescue responded to Hanna’s emergency and will be working together to afford Hanna the best of care as well as a new home sometime in the future.
Animal cruelty is often a precursor to crimes against children and other adults. The majority of violent offenders have histories of animal cruelty and abuse.
