After tree trimmers found three injured and malnourished dogs chained to the backyard of a suburban Detroit neighborhood home, they knew they had to act fast.
They contacted Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue’s Terri Sumpter, who arrived with assistance and a World Animal Awareness Society’s Tom McPhee to document the rescue on camera. While the team managed to rescue one of the dogs, showing visible signs of neglect, two puppies remained at the home after Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue left.
The WA2S Films video below shows Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue confronting a resident of the address about the health of the dogs.
Sumpter pleads with the man to take the dogs to a veterinarian, after discovering they have been sick for some time and have been occasionally aggressive with one another. But unfortunately, even requests to remove the heavy chains from the dogs’ necks went unacknowledged.
“This dog can’t sit out here like this, look at his body condition,” Sumpter told the man. “You take him to a vet, surrender him to animal control, or anybody so he isn’t sitting out here like this. Look at his body condition.”
