Nearly two weeks ago, Second Chance Rescue NYC wrote a harrowing post on Facebook asking for help to save a 2-year-old pit bull's life. Tommy was scheduled to be put down on January 13. He was living on borrowed time. His body was thin. You could see his ribs. His eyes spoke of abuse and past trauma. He was alone.
When Tommy was first found, he had scars on his face, chest and paws, in addition to being emaciated. He also had a large abscess on the side of his neck that extended to part of his face.
Tommy had a look of complete defeat on his face that spoke volumes to Jennifer Brooks, the president of Second Chance. When she saw his picture, passed along by a volunteer, she knew something had to be done for this dog. "I knew this was a dog who hadn't seen a good day in his life," Brooks told The Dodo.
