Formerly Starved Dog Now Healthy And Ready To Start A New Life

Hello time traveller!!

Wilson, a dog that had been found this past April starved and left tied to a fence in the middle of the night has a new home.

Humane Society veterinarian Dr. Aimee Seguin found no medical reason for Wilson’s emaciated condition other than forced starvation, and in fact, he gained almost 9 pounds in his first week at the Humane Society.

He has now gained 32 pounds, nearly doubling his body weight. He also suffered from some skin conditions which were determined to be allergies, and with proper ongoing care he should be able to live a long, healthy life.

Wilson is being adopted by James and Cathy Demars, and will have a new canine sibling named Cooper. He was picked up this morning by his new family.

Anyone who would like to contribute to Wilson’s medical costs, or to help other animals like Wilson, is invited to donated to the Humane Society’s Pumpkin Fund.

The case into his abuse remains open and the person responsible has not been identified.
