Vet is going to use surgical mesh in the open wound. This means lots of bandage changing and pray for no infection as well as longer healing time. The donation site is a Youcareing address Patty, victim of animal cruelty (Providing for Paws)

Yeah, AniMae with all the wound changes and vet stay that money will be eaten up pretty fast. The article did not say if she will have to have another surgery. This one went well. Thanx, for that great news

Sometimes I am so ashamed to be human.

Thanks for the update AniMae, and thanks Kelly for posting here and Facebook.

This is beyond words I can even come up with.

I will say that I hope she makes it now . This is an extremely painful situation to have lived through and there's more to come now. I'm sure you all can imagine. It would be nice if she does not need any more surgies. That would be so great.

***Lynn, I hear what you are saying about being ashamed to be human. Keep in mind that someone capable of doing this is NOT human!!! I know what you meant and personally i could say the same thing but these monsters are NOT humans.

I'm going to have to find something funny/cute or something to look at because I can't stop thinking of the last 25 or so in a row of real barbaric situations I noted.

This baby seems to be on the right track...

Please post updates if more. I don't have FB and many of us don't.

Am literally sick to my stomach at the depravity of this Sending much love and prayers with all my heart for Patty, and all those wonderful people who are doing so much to save this beautiful soul and help her heal. As for the monsters who would do this to an innocent, stating what I wish on them would get me arrested.(Ironic, since they most likely won't be.) Suffice it to say that I hope Karma gets them with a vengeance.

It is incomprehensible to me that anyone could treat an animal in this way. I can only hope that karma will make this right if the law doesn't do so.

Who says there are no monsters? I think to kill them is the eat that could happen. Thankfully she is doing well thus getting her revenge on them.

Monsterous. They who did it are monsters and slime and nothing can rehabilitate them in my eyes. Good luck to Patty. She will hopefully soon be able to go to a new home where they will appreciate all she has been thru and will love her unconditionally.

I understand Prima. I am going to have to take a break from all the misery for awhile.
Care2, Facebook, and so many other places I gets news from are hitting me hard.
I CARE...but when I reach such a miserable point of depression along with physical illness, time to take a break.

I'm thankful for the non mainstream news Care and Facebook and other sources provide, but sometime we have to to take care of ourselves.

Sorry for ranting on your news item Kelly.

I'm sick of these people who prey on the innocent. There are way too many people in this world and we've been raising generations of kids who have no social consciencous or regard for lives. I'm all for an eye for an eye type of justice and make the criminals pay for their stays in the jail and pay for the what they destroy. Put them on house arrest until they pay everything off. Put up more surveillance camera's. They protect the innocent as much as catch criminals. I for one clap my hands every time I hear the police shoot and kill a criminal. That's one less idiot in the world thanks to the police.

I forgot to add, and most importantly, I hope this little soul survives and finds a loving home. I pray everyday for all the animals and ask for our good Lord to severely punish those that abandon, abuse or kill an animal.

I pray that this little angel completely recovers and that she is placed in the most loving home- completely safe from all harm- and that she will from this point on know nothing but love and happiness from real human beings! This monster that did this isn't a human being and I pray that he answers for this heinous crime and will get the appropriate punishment for his depraved act to this sweet innocent! I'm glad to see that reward money for catching him has increased.

Any person who would do such a thing is devoid of compassion. If allowed to continue; how long before that person starts torturing and skinning people?

Folks in Detroit need to be on the lookout for a future serial killer that is on the loose. Whoever could stomach doing this is capable of even worse. You can be sure of it.

People are sick. Our species possesses a capacity for cruelty simply for cruelty's sake that no other species has. I think this particular monster needs to be institutionalized and studied like the extreme specimen of a deadly species that he/she is.

AWAY Price, when there are kind and caring humans such as yourself, you needn't feel ashamed of being human. For all the horror shows out there, there are so many like you. They help pick up the pieces and find ways to heal those afflicted by such tragedies.

May this lovely dog recover and find a loving and caring forever home where Patty will be treated like the treasure that she truly is.

It is shocking that there are some people who could perpetrate such horrific acts.
