Charleston, SC (WCBD)- Two dogs were abandoned on Farnum Rd in Orangeburg, SC in serious condition.
The two dogs, one female and one male, both between 16-18 weeks old, were infected with demodex, yeast infections, and hook worms. The diseases were so severe that the dogs’ breed could not be distinguished. One of the puppies died Sunday afternoon, and it is unclear how long the second will survive based on its condition.
More disturbing than their state is the fact that veterinarians have deduced that they were infected at 6 weeks old, meaning the infections were left to fester for 10 weeks before they were dumped.
Second Chance of Orangeburg Animal Rescue Coalition is asking the public for any information about the person or persons who abused these animals for so long. They say that knowledge should be reported to local law enforcement or animal control. That number is 803-534-0045.
They would like to tell the party responsible that a case of animal neglect and cruelty this serious is punishable by law.
