Thank you so much for the forward Michelle. I have to admit I could only watch 30 seconds of the video before I broke down.
I sent an email to to see what is needed to help get this sweet angel the medical attention she needs. I have also sent out the link to family and friends. I will let you know the outcome of the email.
Now with that said...I would love to find the SOB's that did such a hreatless and cruel thing to this angel and give them a talking to with my bat. Than we'll see if hurting an innocent animal is so funny.

I donated 50 Euros which is about $66.00 U.S. dollars. I urge all of you to send what ever you can to help little Madelina.

When you visit the APAM there are photos of other animals in desperate need of help as well. They appear to be a caring and reputable animal welfare society. Please open your hearts.....and if you can, your wallets. TY.

Noted Tks. Michelle... I can't put into words what I'd like to do to the B___t__d that did this to this beautiful dog.. The humans that do this sort of thing should all be euthinized.. May this precious Angel pull through.. Kudos to all that help this precious dog...

Wednesday September 26, 2012, 10:37 pm
How could any human, no let me re-phrase that this person could not be called human, they are a worthless piece of garbage taking up space on this earth, do such a thing to such a sweet dog, just watching her walking on her front paws brought tears to my eyes. I will definitely make a donation.

As far as justice goes, I'm with Gysele--first, break every bone--then dip them in acid--that would be justice!
I admit, I could not watch the video--I started to, but simply could not!
I will give, I will pray, and I will share this so-sad story of this precious baby.
Surely, among all of us, there is something concrete we can do to help this too-small Animal Welfare Organization. How are they to help the day-to-day animals much less the emergencies if they haven't the necessary resources in place?

Poor little soul! Thank God that she is safe now and that she survived, there are many that are not so lucky. Unfortunately, my country doesn't have a paypall system, so I can't help her. I'll pray that she gets well and the bustard who didi that is in jail for a lifetime.
I am so sad and angry, I can't believe that people can do such horrible things.
It's however comforting to see you, the good people on care2, trying your best to help the animals, thank you so much.

I wanted to give you guys an update. i reciebed an emial back letting me no that madelina is going to be removed from her "so call rescuer". I was also imofrmed that for this angel to recieve the medical attention she needs to be able to eat is around $1,500 dollars. Altogether her medical bills will reach $4,500. So with my brother, friends and co-workers we doonated $1,500. Lets hope that will at least get this angel started on her important medical treatments and put her at some ease.

Thanks for the post Florence and fwds from Michelle and Philip. These owners should be beaten the same way as this poor helpless dog. They are cruel-they are cowards and beneath contempt. While I'm thrilled to see the update from blood boils nontheless. Creatures such as theses should live out their miserable lives in a jail cell and it's more important than ever that people contact their local reps to end the suffering inflicted on animals. I will do what I can and pray for Madelina

couldn't watch it.Whatever could a dog do to deserve this torture? Not anything I can think of.
Sometimes I wish these abused animals would fight back and give their attackers some deep wounds.The heart light is beaten but never fades.Dogs are too good for many unworthy owners. I would require a class and license for the human
Instead of a citizen dog certificate there should be a requirements for an owner to pass a humanity class.

Poor, poor baby, I think all of the comments above have said enough to how despicable the person who did this is.

Everyone who has donated should receive a big thank you, but Milkah and her friends should get a special thank you for their $1,500 donation which will hopefully pay for Madalina to eat.

I also have sent a donation and will share on FB.

If you can't donate, SHARE! You could send it along a chain which could pay for her operations!

I never will understand people who do such a thing to a dog like this. Some way we must have laws made to protect our 4 legged friends. The person who did this need to be in jail and tied to a pole and wiped with a belt until he bleeds. I wish I was so rich that I could help every animal mistreated, but I'm not so I will pass this on to friend and just maybe we'll have a well off friend help pay the bill?

Noted! and Patricia don't feel bad at all as I will never view a video that displays abuse of any kind of an animal . There is IMHO absolutely no need to put oneself through that emotional heartbreak and severe anger for me. I do not in any way shape or form find a need to do so as what ever horrible thing we can imagine in this sick and dying world filled with evil, is happening all around the world. It serves NO purpose. I just sign and donate when and where I can and when I can't i always pray that God will honor all that we do do in the signing of these petitions and note and share so that enough people that are made aware of their needs, god will put that person in place to assist with all their needs. I firmly believe in this!

Of all the creatures that were made, man is the most detestable. Of the entire brood he is the only one--the solitary one--that possesses malice. That is the basest of all instincts, passions, vices--the most hateful. He is the only creature that has pain for sport, knowing it to be pain. Also--in all the list he is the only creature that has a nasty mind.
- Mark Twain's Autobiography

Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it. It is a trait that is not known to the higher animals.

Noted. I am afraid that I can't donate as I have too many rescued cats to feed, but I will pass along the line.. iIam afraid that I chickened out of watchng the video as I have enough imagination of what suffering has gone on without filling my brain with more animal suffering.!.. I KNOW that things like this must mpst ;likely be shown to try and raise money, but I do worry that videos depicting suffering animals will be seen by sick disgusting people who acutally hunt this site to try and see these videos... Do you think that people might donate with just hearing the story? Some of my friends won't do any Care 2 work as they are too horrified by the distresssing picures and sad or horrifying videos. Do you think there is any alternative than showing distressing videos? Any helpful comments appreciated, as I am concerned that we are supporting perverted creeps by mistake. The thought really bothers me.

I am totally devastated. I have no clue how this can happen. I do not understand where this evil comes from. There are no words in human languages that could possibly express the depth of the anguish. Only deep feelings of horror and despair that surface from within at the sight of this being and the thought of what this angel suffered. I shudder, I shudder, I shudder. The monster who committed this heinous act must reside in a very very dark ugly place somewhere his psyche. Really words are too poor, only feelings can speak.

I will do the best I can and forward this horror to my contacts.

This speech is the best speech I have ever heard. Worth one's time to listen. .

i heard about this poor dog from someone who works at apam, and she told me this poor thing has been like this for 6 YEARS!!!
my friend who has seen all types of cruelty there in Romania said she cried all day after seeing this horror...
i donate to apam monthly, they are indeed a trustworthy and awesome group of people...
\My thanks go out to Florence and all who have donated, and those that couldn't who have shared this story.

Noted. I could not being myself to watch the video. Just cannot stand what some humans do to animals. Hope this very sick human will get some justice. And also that this poor animal gets the medical help he needs and a good home.

It is wonderful to see so many people donating to help this poor dog. It would be nice to see how much has been collected, does anyone have an update yet?

..for 6 yrs...unbelievable. Why in hell are we only NOW getting the call for help and why has this poor thing not gotten medical treatment EARLIER?? Don't tell me Madelina wasn't able to eat for years...
And regarding the video (watching/not watching): Like many here, I of course did NOT watch either, instead I did what I often do: I scrolled down fast to get to the donation link, which in this case was below the video so it was inevitable to go to YouTube first, and while the sound immediately started I just listened all the way through. I'm glad I did as that way I heard the loving, soft words spoken, just like Michelle said. No images-no heartbreak.

Words cannot describe my thoughts!!! May God watch over Madelina.. Pray that sufficient money is collected for her surgery. Those who inflicted the pain and injuries upon this dog, will rot in h...............!!! Try the ASPCA International. The might be able to provide funds; plus perhaps bring this dog to the US. Need the correct site/ or phone # for donations..

It is truly scary and disturbing to see people so sick and psychotic. The level of cruelty just keeps getting worse. It makes me not want to live in this world if I cannot protect all the creatures. I just wish sometimes the justice system was eye for an eye.

Absolutely unacceptable ! We can not stop trying to crack down on people that do this and FIGHT for harsher punishment. Sometimes I disagree with Ghandi when he say's "an eye for an eye would make the whole world blind" sometimes an eye for an eye might just be the only justice!

To all that aren't familiar with PayPal, you do not need an account to may sign in as a guest.
You can pay through a credit card or debit card..or you can put money in an account to be used as needed...

I have an account, and i am so thankful they don't let us overdraft..wish my debit card worked the same way, then my money might last longer than to the middle of the month (if i'm lucky)
Animal rescuers never have to worry about retiring...they can never afford it! lol

What was done to this poor dog needs to be done to the person that did this! I can't even say the idgit is lower than a snake's belly cause a snake isn't even that low. What goes around comes around--they will get theirs in the end. May angels be with that precious Madelina--God love her.

will NEVER EVER understand how anyone can do this to such a poor, loving, depending and trusting creature. This is pure horror!

The offender should be treated the same, so he know how it feels - and I bet he'll never do this again!

I just received this email from APAM regarding Madalina -

Following investigations, the vet discovered many problems with grandma Madalina, who is a dog of over 10 years old: she has also cataracts, a big and ugly hernia, from the bottom side of the jaw a part is missing, one back leg is sprained and the front one is sprained following a trauma too old to be able to do something more, the bones callused as they are unfortunately. We don’t mention anymore about the fact that she was full of ticks even in ears.

All together do not sound very good and within the next days we wait more news from the vet. No matter if anything can be done or not for the Madalina’s jaw and legs, she will be loved and cared for in APAM’s sanctuary!

OMG How can people be so cruel? These monsters should be severly punished. Maybe in the same way, maybe then they'll know how it feels to be treated in such a way. Sadly noted. Thanks Florence.

UPDATE ON MADALINA that I was asked to post for Cristina:

Today I received an update from Cristina Zuba regarding Madalina. It reads as follows:

Dear Friends:

This small and innocent soul, following the investigations, proved to have suffered an entire life! All her wounds are old and impossible to be repaired anymore. It is sad, but the good side is that she reached to us at least in her old time where we can offer her a lot of love and care for the rest of her life. Unfortunately, an eventual adoption is not possible for her because travelling is too risky for her health and here, in our country for sure, her chances for adoption are zero!

Madalina is not in pain and she receives daily vitamins to enforce her and special food. Not even the hernia can be operated on because the anestesia could be fatal for her,

She also wrote this to Madalina:

"Our dear Madalina, we are so sorry that we didn't find you sooner to help you. We are so sorry that we cannot find who did all this to you, but we promise you that you'll be so happy here with us and we'll love you so much that you'll forget all you've been through!"

With love and many thanks for your support.

Victoria, Cristina & Madalina
