The Royal Animal Sanctuary in Peachtree, Georgia received a disturbing call asking the thin dog to walk on the road. Once rescuers arrived at the scene of the sighting, they did not know where they were going.
The malnourished puppies immediately greeted the rescuer and tried to provide her with a light meal before bringing her in. Although this desperate furry friend, now called Shamrock, must have starved to death, she could not settle down and enjoy the food she so badly needed. It seemed that she knew that this was her chance to draw attention to the environment in which she was forced to live. The four-leaf clover seemed extremely excited and kept pointing at an area behind the house.
“It’s more like she told them,‘ Hey, come with me. ’She kept stopping and turning around, waiting for them to follow her.” – Royal Animal Sanctuary
When rescuers followed the four-leaf clover throughout the house, they began to hear the sound of a dog crying in the distance. Among the crying were her puppies hidden in the sofa cushions, and the desperate howl of the abandoned dogs kept in small cages.
“What We Thought Was Clover Leading Us To Her Puppies Was Much More Than That…..it Was A Horrible Sight That We Will Never Forget.” – Royal Animal Refuge
As the rescuers began to explore the area, they were hit with an overwhelming smell that engulfed the property. It became clear just how much suffering these poor pups had endured, as they soon came across multiple dead animals that had been gone for quite some time.
Among the deceased animals were rabbits, chickens, ducks, and 1 dog. They also discovered a dog with a previous leg fracture that healed at an acute angle. This injury was so severe that the neglected pup, now named Archie, required a leg amputation in order to find comfort.
“Despite the painful scenes we see, we know that the dogs we save today will never live a painful life, and will not live in days of abuse and neglect. They will always know the source of the next meal. Reassure them that they will always understand love and affection. “– Royal Animal Sanctuary
Archie is now recovering from a leg amputation of a caring foster family, with clover and her 10 puppies. According to the Royal Animal Refuge, there are currently six aggravated animal cruelty crimes against property owners, and she is forced to surrender all animals for rescue.
Fortunately, Clover showed such determination to bring the rescuer to the terrible situation she endured, and her bravery led to the incredible rescue. We are very happy to learn that the rescued puppies got rid of the tortures of the past and will only know the life full of love from now on!
