When a couple approached police and animal control officers claiming that they had found a puppy abandoned in the bushes, the authorities had the dog’s best interest at the forefront of their minds.
What mattered the most was getting this poor puppy the help she needed, and fast.
However, when the officers investigated the incident and interviewed the couple, they quickly realized that the pair had lied about the puppy. They hadn’t found her. They were instead allegedly the ones responsible for her rough condition.
Another dog named Oreo was also found in the rough shape at their home. With enough proof, they arrested and charged them with animal cruelty.
The two pups were cared for and treated by SoCo Spay and Neuter and Animal Clinic, as well as Mesa Veterinary Clinic.
Now, they are much happier and healthier thanks to the care and patience of vets and rescuers. They are slowly recovering from the abuse they suffered and are looking for a forever home!
The dog found in the bushes was named Zara. Her foster mom, Brenda Eakes, has opened up her home to the puppy for the past two and a half weeks, and can’t fathom being separated from her new companion.
She would be devastated if Zara found herself in another abusive home. That is why she decided to makes hers permanent for Zara!
