Once the dogs were safely taken into possession, Ysuhuaylas reached out to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC (RDRNYC), an organization known for taking on the most destitute cases, for help. The group agreed to take on not only Benny, but Betty as well. "We don't leave dogs behind, ever," Stacey Silverstein, cofounder of RDRNYC, told The Dodo.
"Our hearts break in [two] thinking about Benny, day after day, night after night in the freezing cold, in pain, living in this box," wrote the group on its Facebook page. "Benny needs all our prayers and positive thoughts."
