It’s stories like these that we regret reviewing. But that we will not tire of doing so as long as we are the voice of the have-nots and help stop this kind of abuse.
And no one deserves a fate like the one he had to experience for a helpless dog that was seen lying in the grass and on the side of a road in Connecticut, USA.
They left him alone, with only a blanket as his only loyal companion to protect him from the intense cold.
His paws were completely frozen. This caused him severe pain every time he tried to get up and walk.
Fortunately, a jogger passing by saw him and contacted the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter. They finally rescued him and are currently in charge of his recovery.
“The worst fate a pet can suffer is to face abandonment. Like this puppy did, who had to endure one of the coldest nights of the year on the street, without protection. They left him alone, scared, and with a towel as his only coat”, said the athlete who found the pet.
“We have information that leads us to believe that the dog was abandoned there at 11:30 pm on Saturday night. The dog was not found until after 7 a.m. on Sunday morning. We have opened an investigation into this animal rejection”, reported the refuge on its social media account.
For almost 24 hours he stood in fear, enduring in terror the cold of human contempt.
Lincoln is still slowly recovering and progressing, with all the treatments he needs.
However, such as the condition in which he arrived at the shelter that he will need rehabilitation for some time before he is eligible for adoption.
Usually, the first two or three days in a shelter are the most critical and traumatic for an animal that has been abused, ignored, and treated cruelly. For it is not just a matter of giving them the medical care they need at the moment.
Therefore, it’s very important to treat them with love and a lot of patience, to gain their trust, and to be able to give them that long-awaited fresh start.
We celebrate the immense support of these activists, thanks to whom Lincoln has been able to slowly get better. Fortunately, after his story became known on digital platforms, many came together to support him with donations.
Share this story with your close friends. Hopefully, time will heal the physical and psychological wounds of this beautiful furry friend. And may he find a new loving home where he can leave that dark past behind.
