Status update concerning legal investigation: “We were just notified by Rescue Dogs Rock of NY that Beatrice passed away shortly following her surgery. We are heartbroken. We have requested a necropsy in hopes of finding the truth behind this precious girl’s suffering. We will no matter the results share them with you all. If the results reflect abuse, cruelty or neglect we will demand justice. Our hearts are broken, as I know you yours are as well. Rest easy sweet girl. We will never forget you.”
We will be following the story for further updates. Please check back often.
UPDATE: Beatrice died today; her weak and tortured body was too frail to survive the complicated and invasive surgery she needed to save her life. Upon her arrival in New York City, board certified surgeons performed a colorectal to adhere Beatrice’s colon, and a vaginal prolapse resection. The tissue on the resected area was necrotic and devitalized. During recovery, Beatrice experienced acute cardiac arrest. She immediately received chest compression, and five rounds of cardiac resuscitation medication, yet remained unresponsive.
Beatrice did not die alone; with her was the medical staff and the partners of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. Rest in peace and fly with the angels sweet dog.
There is limited information where Beatrice came from, but the Ruin Creek Animal Protection Society of Henderson North Carolina worked very hard to find a rescue to help this two-year-old, exceptionally sweet dog from imminent death.
Dubbed Beatrice, the deaf pit bull mix has been in excruciating pain from the pure hell she lived prior to yesterday when she became part of the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC organization. In what seems to be multiple heinous acts of cruelty, Beatrice suffers from both a prolapsed uterus and rectum. According to veterinarians, only some kind of evil human action would cause this kind of injury.
“Beatrice is a dog who has been ‘used and abused,'” stated Stacey Silverstein, of the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC organization as the group prepared to transport Beatrice to New York City on Thursday to meet with specialized veterinary surgeons to help map out the dog’s extensive surgeries and reconstruction required to save her life. Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue stated: “Beatrice is lucky to be alive. She has suffered silently for God knows how long. She’s been violated, used and abused and just had to ‘take it.’ Well, that part of Beatrice’s life ends right now. The doctors say she will need multiple surgeries to repair all the damage. How much physical and mental abuse can one being endure? Once, we’ve done everything medically possible for this sweet, broken dog, what will we be left with? That we don’t know. We know she is very sweet, but how can one endure all of this torture and abuse without being affected?”
The rescue and rehabilitation of Beatrice is a task the all volunteer group of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC happily accept and embrace. The dog’s veterinary care and surgeries will be very expensive, but every life is worth saving, and Beatrice deserves better than the hell she has been forced to endure for most of her short life. At this time, the rescue organization has not been given any information where Beatrice came from, except that another dog from the same home, had been turned in last year with a severely prolapsed uterus. Background information concerning Beatrice will be shared by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC when made available. For now, it is important to concentrate on saving this dog’s life.
