Dog 'days from death' now thriving

A dog that was days from death is recovering well after being rescued by the SPCA - and members of the public can continue the trend by keeping their eyes and ears open to animal cruelty.

In mid-October the SPCA was alerted by a member of the public to Cassie - a dog that was malnourished and dehydrated after not being fed for weeks.

SPCA Auckland chief inspector Vicki Border estimates she was just three days from death.

"Someone had just tied her up and left her to die.

"It's been years since I've seen a case of neglect this serious."

Cassie was removed from the property and received emergency medical treatment at the SPCA Auckland Animal Village.

Border says the first few days were touch and go but 21 days later Cassie was "like a different dog".

"I had to carry her in here that first day - she was so weak she could barely stand.

"Now she is out enjoying daily walks and running around in the local park." MORE>>
