They Tried To Starve Him & Beat The Spirit Out Of Helpless Dog But He Still Wags

 The Capital Area Humane Society in Lansing, Michigan, encounters a high volume of homeless dogs. The most recent case of animal cruelty has physically broken the hearts of everyone involved. A dog recently passed through their doors in such critical condition that staff workers were baffled as to how the dog was still alive.

He was coated in dung and urine from head to toe, had numerous puncture wounds on his weak body, and was starving. Workers rushed the dog, named Ralphie, to an emergency veterinary clinic, where life-saving efforts were initiated. Ralphie's condition has stabilized as of this writing, but he remains extremely cautious. He wags his tail, smiles, kisses, and even attempts to leap up to get and offer hugs.


Julia Willson, CEO of the Capital Area Humane Society, stated, "It's critical that we hold folks like this accountable." This is not acceptable in our community.”


A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the offending party. Anyone with information should call Eaton County Animal Control at (517) 543-5755. Meanwhile, the humane organization expresses gratitude to the young guy who discovered Ralphie and brought him to the shelter. The dog would have died if he had continued in his current condition for any length of time.
