Rescued, injured dog to rehab in Yonkers
A dehydrated, anemic and allegedly abused dog will be staying at the Yonkers Specialty Center for a few months after being rescued in Brooklyn.
Ginger, along with another dog, were rescued after being locked in a cage for seven months. Rosa Catania, of Brooklyn, is now facing animal cruelty charges.
Ginger had suffered three broken legs and could not move.
"When the girls got there to pick her up, they were horrified," says Robyn Urman, of Pet ResQ. "They've never seen an animal in this condition."
Veterinarians say she will have to undergo several surgeries that will cost approximately $20,000. A GoFundMe page has been created to help pay for the procedures.
Rescuers say it will be at least two months before Ginger can be adopted.
