Severely abused and neglected dogs are rescued by The Arrow Fund

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two dogs are rescued by the Arrow Fund after being found severely abused and neglected.

A small male terrier mix was found in a grassy area in the Louisville Metro region. The dog has now been named Waldo.

After shaving 2.5 pounds of matted fur off the dog, veterinarians found a maggot infestation in some of his wounds. X-rays also found small metal or gravel pieces in the dog's stomach.

An English Bulldog, now named Tonka, from Jessamine County is also being treated.

He was tossed from a car and found on the side of the road. Tonka is suffering from starvation, pneumonia, chronic vomiting and skin conditions.

The dogs are being treated at Blue Pearl Veterinary Hospital.

If you'd like to make a donation to help the animals or to foster an animal head to the Arrow Fund Website.
