The Pennsylvania SPCA is urgently seeking information regarding a dog that was discovered tied to a tree in Pennypack Park, Northeast Philadelphia, on Monday. This heart-wrenching incident came to light when the Animal Care and Control Team alerted the SPCA’s Humane Law Enforcement Team, who swiftly responded and transferred the canine to their shelter hospital for immediate care.
Initially known as Lovie, the dog has been lovingly renamed Lavender by the compassionate shelter staff. Lavender was found with a devastating facial injury, and veterinary professionals are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding this traumatic event. Tragically, her nasal airways have been compromised, leaving no visible nostrils on her face. While she manages to breathe through her lips, the likelihood of her ever being able to breathe normally again is uncertain.
In their pursuit to provide Lavender with the best possible future, the SPCA’s Law Enforcement team is appealing to anyone who may have knowledge about her or her owner to come forward. They are dedicated to providing Lavender with the necessary medical treatments and preparing her for the next chapter of her life. While many details remain unknown about Lavender’s past and how she ended up abandoned in the vast wooded areas of Pennypack Park, Nicole Wilson, the PSPCA’s director of humane law enforcement, emphasizes that there is someone out there who holds vital information about this innocent puppy. They earnestly implore these individuals to do the right thing, step forward, and help uncover the truth about what transpired, identify the responsible parties, and bring them to justice.
Lavender’s story is one that touches the depths of our hearts, reminding us of the resilience and strength of these vulnerable creatures. Let us stand together in support of Lavender and all animals who have faced similar injustices, ensuring that their voices are heard and their suffering is acknowledged.
