A trash dumpster is no place for a dog, a true story of survival!
You are a police officer in Tampa, FL on patrol, as you stop to take a break in a remote parking lot you get out of your police cruiser to survey the area. You hear a noise from a nearby trash dumpster and move closer to investigate. Is it an injured person............
.......a child perhaps! You move closer. Your senses are alert, you attention is on the dumpster, but you cautiously watch the surrounding area. The sound grows louder, a whimper, but not anything you can yet identify. You lift the lid and shine your flashlight into the darkness.........looking up at you with scared, shining eyes is a puppy, or rather the skeleton of a puppy.......
You know what to do, where to take it, dispatch has heard this story many times before,
Tampa Bay Veterninary Emergency Clinic will care for the sick and injured, and they have friends who will watch over them as they heal!
Because they will heal.......just look at him now!
The officer involved is real, his identity shall remain confidential. Many thanks to Heather and her husband for fostering Dumpty who now is in need of a Furever home. You can see him this Saturday at Petsmart in Citrus Park or by contacting Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Clinic for a meet and greet at the clinic!
