A man was strolling down the street in Coachella, California, when he heard sounds emanating from a dumpster. As he got closer, he discovered a plastic Walmart bag containing a five-week-old pit bull mix puppy. They took the injured puppy to a nearby jewelry store for assistance.
Alejandra Espinoza Zazueta’s mother works at a jewelry business and asked her for help right away. When she arrived, the poor pup’s skin was coated with third-degree burns from her midwaist to her hind legs. They named the puppy Hope and immediately notified the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to assisting abused and neglected animals.
“It appears as if she was burned with a caustic liquid, or a metal object like an iron,” the rescue said of her initial state. She is just a few weeks old, has had a section of her tail cut off, and is unable to walk as a result of being beaten and abused.”
Hope was in excruciating pain from serious burns that covered nearly a third of her body and caused her skin to slough off. She was sent to an emergency animal hospital, where she was monitored and cared for 24 hours a day.
Despite the fact that Hope’s recuperation will be lengthy and difficult, she has Zazueta by her side, who adores her and is willing to adopt the puppy. Zazueta will not give up on her, even if she remains crippled. “She has a home, and we are excitedly anticipating her arrival. We have everything [for her], we’re prepared, and all we have to do now is wait for the day when they phone and tell us we can pick her up.”
