A maltreated puppy was brought to a no-kill animal shelter after being found with a hairband tightly tied around her snout.
The hairband had deeply embedded itself into her skin, even reaching the bone, which made her little face swell up to three times its normal size. The Cincinnati Animal CARE center came to her rescue and provided immediate attention by carefully removing the hairband and stitching up the large wound. The shelter staff affectionately named her Tiffany after their favorite pop icon from the 80s.
There is a belief that the hairband was used to stop the little dog from making noise, which is a common practice with cable ties. The animal shelter’s disturbing Facebook updates exposed the severe level of abuse.
Tiffany was praised by the rescue team for dealing with her emergency situation bravely. She stayed overnight with one of the medical team members and is now recovering well, eating and drinking appropriately. The Good Samaritan who rescued Tiffany is currently taking care of her.
Tiffany’s condition has vastly improved, with a significant reduction in her swelling. Furthermore, her facial wounds have been stitched up and are currently healing. Cincinnati Animal CARE is actively searching for leads on Tiffany’s abuser, and PETA is even offering a reward for anyone who can provide valuable information that leads to an arrest. If you have any knowledge of the situation, please contact the Hamilton County Dog Wardens at 513-541-7387.
Tiffany’s recent news! The shelter posted an update on their Facebook page stating that the lovely lady came to visit them yesterday. They expressed their joy upon seeing her beautiful sutures and how well she was recuperating in her foster home with her kind caregivers.
It’s amazing to witness the strong endurance of animals. This female pup is doing incredibly well, thriving and living a joyful, healthy life.
