September 11, 2014, Calgary, AB — On Friday September 5, 2014, a white female Bulldog cross was found wandering around a strip mall in the Ogden area of SE Calgary. The dog, affectionately named “Ruby” by the veterinary clinic who admitted her, was suffering from severe neglect. A good samaritan had picked her up and brought her to the clinic immediately as she was suffering from large facial and hind wounds, severe emaciation, eye and ear infections, and fecal staining of her paws. “Ruby” unfortunately succumbed to the multitude of neglect related afflictions while under anesthetic to repair her most serious injuries .
Calgary Humane Society’s Protection and Investigations team is investigating. “This poor dog had no permanent identification and as a result we are very limited in our ability to investigate further,” says Brad Nichols, Manager, Cruelty Investigations.
“This is some of the most severe overall neglect I have witnessed and, most certainly, would warrant charges for animal cruelty. We are asking for the public’s help in finding the owner or caretaker of this dog. If you recognize this dog or have information relevant to this investigation, we ask that you please call the Calgary Humane Society at 403-205-4455”.
Calgary Humane Society always encourages the public to call CHS if they witness an animal in any situation where they are being abused or neglected. All information provided remains confidential.
