There is another horrifying case of animal abuse in Baltimore City — a dog with severe injuries, left to die inside of an abandoned home.

But the dog survived, and is now recovering with the help of the BARCS animal shelter.

Animal control officers brought her to the shelter on Thursday, where workers named her “Molly.”

“I walked out and saw her to do her intake and I just immediately started crying,” said Lisa Morabito of BARCS, who will serve as Molly’s foster caretaker.

“If anyone has any information that can help shed light on what happened, or who the dog belongs to; please contact the BARCS shelter”

There are fresh bite wounds on the animal’s face and paws, all of them deep and infected.

“She has wounds down here on her paws, he ear is ripped in half,” Morabito said.

There’s also skin missing on both of the dog’s sides, with infection causing those areas to bulge out.  Still, there’s a better than 50-percent chance that Molly will survive.

“Her main thing is the severity of the infection that has spread all throughout her body.  She is losing layers of skin that is just sloughing off right now,” Morabito said.

The dog needs antibiotics, cream for her wounds — and rest.

“There’s kind of a lot of bite wounds and trauma around her eye, so we’re not sure whether she’ll be able to keep it or not but we’re going to try,” Morabito said.

The dog was found in an abandoned home in the 2400 block of Christian Street, not far from the West Side Shopping Center.

A contractor entered the home to begin rehabbing it and found the dog in the basement, tied up on a leash. They left her there in this condition,” Morabito said.

Animal Control is now trying to find out who left her there.  Morabito says it’s one of the worst cases of animal abuse she’s ever seen.

“I get upset thinking about it. It’s, you don’t know how anyone could do something like that to a dog,” Morabito said.

Is Molly the victim of a dog-fighting operation?

BARCS officials aren’t sure – it’s a possibility, but it could also be that she and another dog simply fought, and the owner decided to abandon her in that basement.

 HOUSTON -Band cut off cat’s circulation to leg

An injured cat was found in southeast Houston on Tuesday after someone put a rubber band around her back leg, cutting off her circulation.

The cat, nicknamed Flower, was on Princess Street when someone spotted her. She is now getting the attention she needs at BARC, the city’s animal shelter

“When we got Flower, we sent a plea out to our rescue partners and Frisky Paws stepped forward today and brought the cat to this vet,” said Carlene Lormand from BARC.

The cat was taken to the Cat Vet Clinic on West Alabama.

“As the leg swelled and became infected, it became even more painful,” said Dr. Nancy Christensen.

The cat’s leg will have to be amputated, but she is expected to make a full recovery.

Once Flower recovers, she will be available for adoption. If you’re interested in giving her a home, contact theFrisky Paws Rescue group.
