LOUISVILLE, Kentucky – This week, an injured puppy was abandoned outside of the Kentucky Humane Society shelter. According to the animal welfare agency, the puppy was discovered by one of the shelter’s veterinary technicians who found the pup lying on an Amazon delivery bag outside the shelter’s Admissions Lobby.
The shelter said:
Security cameras showed that at 7:30 pm the night before, a vehicle without a visible license plate pulled up and the passenger left the puppy at the door. The poor puppy – whom we’ve named Cowboy – had a significant injury to his front left leg. He appeared to be in tremendous pain and didn’t move all night.
X-rays of the puppy’s leg indicate that it was broken by blunt force trauma, but the injuries are not believed to be from a vehicle. The shelter said, “We do not know how Cowboy was injured, or who abandoned him. We choose to believe the best in people, so we hope that his injury was an accident and that his owner or the person who found him didn’t know what else to do.”
Donations for Cowboy can be made to the shelter at this link.
