“Posting for Anita Kelsey, I saw your request on Twitter & so wanted to help in the only way I can. I know nothing will bring Prince back, but I hope this helps, in some small way…God bless all at Mayhew Animal Home, for their outstanding commitment to Animal Welfare.

R.I.P Prince x

R.I.P Prince, a beautiful sweet boy, taken too soon. Now running free, under the bright blue sky & soft fluffy clouds, through sweet-smelling flowers & never-ending green grass, gone to the place all animals go; just over Rainbow Bridge. Jules xx

Please read his story below:

On Friday 12th October Animal Welfare Officers from The Mayhew Animal Home were called to the emergency rescue of a dying dog. The dog had been discovered buried amongst fly-tipped rubbish in a North London park.

The elderly German Shepherd was found collapsed, surrounded by dumped rubbish, litter and a filthy mattress and was initially assumed dead.

After discovering the extent of the suffering and neglect the dog had endured, the charity – a rescue centre in North London – is appealing to the public to help them find the dog’s owner so that they can be held accountable for their actionsWhoever owned this gift from God..you don’t deserve to breathe the same air as humans because you yourself are an animal!! I hope you read this, & I sincerely hope that each time you close your eyes to rest, you will be awoken by the terrible images of the dog you let die. I hope the nightmares continue to haunt you, as you are reminded of Princes pleading eyes, burning into you, begging for some type nourishment. But you didn’t care, did you! Does it make you feel proud, knowing you let a sentient being starve, to near death? Not a lot to ask was it??”

The 13-year-old dog was wearing a collar naming him as Prince and was covered in his own faeces. His coat was matted into hard rocks of hair and he was too weak to lift his head.

The Mayhew’s Animal Welfare Officer, Zoe Edwards, said:

“When I initially saw Prince I thought he was dead. He was lifeless, filthy and the smell coming from him was like sewage.
I really don’t understand the mentality of some people. This was obviously someone’s pet who loved them enough to once get him a decent collar and have his name engraved on it.“To the owner of Prince, do you remember getting the dog, you must have loved him at some point…why couldn’t you have taken him to a shelter if he was no longer loved or wanted…it would have been the kindest thing to do…but you left him out like a piece of trash…well just remember Karma is a bitch!”

It is hard to believe that someone owned this dog for this long only to discard him alongside some old rubbish in a park. The condition of the dog indicated to me that this would have taken several months, if not years, for him to get into this mess.Does anyone recognise the dog? did you have a dog live near you who looked like Prince, but who suddenly vanished? Please, ease your conscience & do the right thing by telling the police or the Mayhew Animal Home; unless you too want to be visited by Karma every night too!!

I always give people the benefit of the doubt in my job and always try to be non-judgemental but in this case there is no excuse for the way this dog had been left. Someone must have seen the state that Prince was in and you would have had to have been blind to not see how this dog was suffering.”

Mayhew vet, Gen Wilkinson, said:

“This is an absolutely horrifying case of cruelty and neglect. Prince was severely dehydrated and had irreparable neurological damage, meaning that he was unable to move his back legs or tail and was doubly incontinent.

He was suffering immensely and this had been going on some time. He was also very underweight and tried to eat when we offered him food despite being so weak.

After shaving his matted hair we discovered maggots burrowing into the pressure sores on his body which had been caused by his low weight. “OH dear lord, maggots burrowing into his pressure sores, it must have taken months for him to become like that…somebody owned that sweet dog; yet left him to starve!!”

The only decision we were left with was to bring his life to a peaceful end but he should not be forgotten. 

Someone must know who Prince belonged to”. “Someone does know who this beautiful sweet soul belonged to, & if they don’t want the same done to another animal or worse; I suggest they ease their conscience by telling the police or The Mayhew Animal Home. I’m sure it can be done in complete confidence!”

The Mayhew’s Head of Marketing, Alison Morgan, said:

“This case is certainly one of the worst cases we have seen, which is why we need to take action and urge the government to push ahead with compulsory micro-chipping for all dogs. If Prince had been microchipped we would have had a better chance of finding out who was accountable for his neglect”.

I am raising money in the name of Prince who The Mayhew found dumped under a pile of rubbish in a London Park, barely alive . Sadly Prince could not be saved but I want his death to lead to something positive so that his memory can live on.

Just one of the main news story:-

One of the worst cases of pet neglect and cruelty seen by the Mayhew Animal Home in Kensal Green

An animal charity is appealing for help to find the heartless owner of a dying dog found dumped in Roundwood Park.

The elderly German Shepherd called ‘Prince’ was found collapsed, surrounded by dumped rubbish, litter and a filthy mattress and was initially assumed dead when he was discovered last Friday (12).

He was taken to the Mayhew Animal Home in Trenmar Gardens, Kensal Green, where he was found to be covered in his own faeces, his coat was matted into hard rocks of hair and he was too weak to lift his head.

The 13-year-old dog was wearing a collar with his name but not microchipped.

Due to the severity of his condition he sadly had to be put to sleep.

Price’s plight is one of the worse cases of cruelty and neglect of a pet seen by the charity in its 126-year history.

Gen Wilkinson, a vet at the Mayhew, said: “This is an absolutely horrifying case of cruelty and neglect.

“Prince was severely dehydrated and had irreparable neurological damage, meaning that he was unable to move his back legs or tail and was doubly incontinent. He was suffering immensely and this had been going on some time. He was also very underweight and tried to eat when we offered him food despite being so weak.

“After shaving his matted hair we discovered maggots burrowing into the pressure sores on his body, which had been caused by his low weight.

“The only decision we were left with was to bring his life to a peaceful end but he should not be forgotten. Someone must know who Prince belonged to”

The Mayhew is urging anyone with information about Prince’s owner to come forward.

They are also asking people horrified by this case to sign their petition, calling for compulsory microchipping for all dogs and for the government to push ahead with this in response to the DEFRA consultation. “See petition link above or below”

Zoe Edwards, the Mayhew’s animal welfare officer, said: “When I initially saw Prince I thought he was dead. He was lifeless, filthy and the smell coming from him was like sewage.

She added: “I really don’t understand the mentality of some people. This was obviously someone’s pet who loved them enough to once get him a decent collar and have his name engraved on it.
