Every 10 seconds in the United States, an animal is abused. Many of these cases have heartbreaking ends. Patrick’s is an exception.
This canine survivor was brutally abused, starved, wrapped in a garbage bag, and thrown down a trash chute to die. His former owners reportedly left him tied to a railing for more than a week.
Emaciated and near-death, a Good Samaritan maintenance worker discovered Patrick before he could be tossed into the trash compacter. He was then rushed to Associated Humane Society’s Newark Animal Shelter for emergency veterinary treatment.
And look at him now. Your story ain’t over Patrick, you lucky dog. It’s only just begun.
