As I have shared with you in the past, Pets Alive is an organization that is near and dear to my heart. They were the reason I met and adopted my Minnie Pearl. Her "Gotcha Day" was April 18, 2009.

In the years that followed, I have watched Pets Alive come to the aid of so many animals, not just dogs. They have cats, goats, pigs, and more. The volunteers and the team who work there are always going above and beyond to help animals that need care. It is rare that they say they can't help in some way when there is an animal in need.

Pets Alive Helps Starved Dog, Bully, Recover in Middletown, New York

The latest animal they have taken in that is in extreme need of care is Bully. According to a Facebook post shared today (January 31, 2023), Bully was intentionally starved. This not only caused horrible physical issues for Bully but it has also made it important that he is handled gently to regain trust.

Pet Rescue in the Hudson Valley

Pets Alive plans to help Bully recover but it could take a while and no one is quite sure to what level he will be able to get back to normal for a dog his breed and size.

It's not safe to feed emaciated animals too much too quickly, and they are best served consuming a small meal every six hours. A recovery diet is composed predominately of fat, quality protein, and minerals rather than carbohydrates. Slow and steady wins the race, and we'll be here for Bully for however long it takes.
