Cubby was found by Animal Control after he was reported for a cruelty case. He was living on a chain for six years with nothing but a small wooden house as shelter. While living on the chain, a grotesque tumor started to grow. His owners did not get him medical attention. The tumor became so large; it enveloped around his entire paw and one day burst. His paw was so infected, and the smell was so bad, that finally, someone called Animal Control to help poor Cubby. He was brought to a high-kill shelter, and he was suffering. The shelter sent a plea to us to take him into our care. After we heard his story, we agreed to take him into our rescue and get him immediate medical attention. We could not let Cubby suffer a minute longer. Dogs like Cubby don’t usually make it out alive and are not given a second chance.
