I just received a heartbreaking email about a dog named Buster. The pictures are very disturbing, the boy was at death’s door when someone found him.

I know there is a kind soul out there who is willing to give this poor boy a chance at life, a good life. He is currently in Staten Island waiting for a forever home, he doesn’t have much time.

Buster arrived here as a stray. To put it mildly, he was at death’s door: he was starving and his body was covered in sores (from urine stains). We can only assume that before finding himself on the street, he was kept confined, in filthy conditions, and not fed. I met him day after he arrived. He was sleeping in the back of his cage, curled up in a ball. We gently nudged him awake, and he dutifully stood there while we put a leash on him. And then we discovered the wonderful resilience of animals … even those who should never trust another human again. But Buster was grateful for our attention, for the walk, for the opportunity to relieve himself outdoors, and for some yummy dog food (we have to feed him small servings). He’s around 8 years old and weighs a mere 35 pounds.

Anyone interested please contact Brett of Kodi’s Club Rescue at 917-292-9154 or via e-mail. Please post and crosspost this message. I cannot bear the thought that Buster will die without ever having known love and kindness from a human.
