This poor soul is Ozzie, one of the most matted dogs the Hillside SPCA has ever encountered. He is currently at an emergency veterinary hospital where he will immediately be sedated. It is unknown at this point what damage lies underneath his severely matted coat. It is horrifying to think that any human being could let their pet get to this point. His hind legs are matted together and he cannot walk except to shuffle. His ears are grossly infected. The stench is unbelievable. Please! If you see an animal in this condition in your neighborhood, Report IT! Calls can be anonymous to the shelter or your local police. The agony he has suffered is tremendous. We can only hope that he can be saved. Please consider a donation to Joe’s Fund made quickly and securely online. This fund pays all veterinary bills at the shelter. We thank you from the bottom of our heart for any help you can give. Updates to follow as we receive them.
