Canine victim of animal cruelty begins recovery

JESSAMINE Co., Ky. (WTVQ) — Good news from the Jessamine County Animal Care & Control this evening: The dog named ‘Snickers’ is well on his way toward recovery.

Snickers is one of two dogs seized a few days ago,  after a concerned neighbor called in about the alarmingly thin animals kept outdoors in the freezing weather.

The dogs showed signs of dehydration and undernourishment, and JCACC caretakers put heaters in their kennels to raise their body heat.

The veterinarian in charge of Snickers’ recovery said, “He’s eaten twice today. I’ve walked him around the clinic twice. He made it about 20 feet the first time, then half way around the second time.[…] I think he’s going to continue to get better both physically and emotionally.”

The other dog, a black lab mix, seemed much better off when the two were rescued, and appears to be doing well.
