This video follows a dog that was once near death following horrific abuse, all the way to full recovery. It’s hard to believe the dog we meet is the same happy, healthy and playful dog living in a loving home by the end.
But let’s go back to the beginning of this amazing tale. When a group of maintenance men noticed a bag was moving around in a trash container, they wanted to figure out what was inside – and never could have guessed what they were about to find. A dog, who was starving, malnourished and in terrible condition, had been thrown down the 22-story garbage chute. Alive but extremely sick and injured, the dog – now named Patrick – was rescued by animal workers, and brought back to health. This is his incredible story, and while it was heartbreaking to look at Patrick’s skin and bones, seeing Patrick looking safe and healthier by the end is definitely worth it.
What makes this story even more incredible is the fact that Patrick served as inspiration for Patrick’s Law, which works to deter similar cases of abuse from happening in the future!!
Patrick was inducted into the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association (NJVMA) Animal Hall of Fame on Sunday, March 9, 2014. Hats off to the maintenance workers and animal lovers who made Patrick’s rescue possible. No animal should ever be thrown away like trash.
Patrick then… vs. Patrick NOW!!!
