This is beautiful little Chelsea. Chain of Hope volunteers found her as a stray with this horrible injury. Chelsea had been burned. We don’t know if someone poured acid on her or actually burned her. Judy and Karen found her one day last week while on outreach. She started over to them when they had pulled over in the van to go to a house. She was very skinny and was pretty hungry, but scared. She was only about 3 months old. The volunteers  were finally able to get her by coaxing her with some canned food. They scooped her up and started for the vet.





Chelsea is just precious! Who could do this to any animal is beyond me-I’ll never understand it. Unfortunately, whoever it was will get no consequences for this because we don’t know who did it. I hope they realize though, that Karma’s a bitch!

Chelsea had to be knocked out and the burn cleaned up, but it is healing very nicely. We don’t know if her hair will grow back in there or not, but regardless-she’s a sweetie and we all love her just the same!

DSCN1580Yes, there are days when we are mumbling “I hate people” under our breath and this is why. Those of us on the front lines and in the trenches see horrible and disturbing things all the time. It just baffles the brain to think about someone actively pouring acid on this baby or burning her with something or whatever the case may be. It’s unconscionable. Yet, Chelsea has a GREAT spirit. We have loved on her immensely and she is a very happy puppy now.  We put medicated salve on her everyday and she is on antibiotics just to stave off any infection that might try to creep up.  She has a great appetite and is enjoying having all of the food and water that she wants available all the time! She thinks that’s pretty cool!

I say this all the time, but it’s true: Chain of Hope finds these cases because we are out in the community, on the streets and in the alleys 6 days a week. We work tirelessly for the neglected and abused animals in Kansas City. Thank goodness, Judy and Karen rolled up when they did and were able to get this beautiful puppy that needed help so badly. Thanks for keeping us out there, we sincerely appreciate it!

    She’s adorable. That burn looks a lot like the ones that can happen from over the counter flea and tick preventatives like Hartz.

    I consider Chain of Hope volunteers guardian angels of the animals. I can’t imagine what terrible things you see, like Chelsea, but you just keep keeping on! Thank you for all you do.

    Bless you for being there for Chelsea…she’s a beautiful girl, and I’d like updates. We lost one of our three girls(old age) in April, and Bandit seems lonely, still now. Maybe…………isn’t it a wonder how these horribly abused girls EVER trust a human again. WHO COULD DO THIS TO A SWEET DOG, OR ANY ANIMAL???????

    You guys are my heros! Now if only we could find a group of VERY LARGE MEN to deliver JUSTICE or “KARMA” to the abusive sh##heads when, where & how it’s deserved without being viewed as breaking the law! Wish we could create a group like those big muscled, tattooed biker guys in New York. I forget the name of the show but it was so righteous to see the look on people’s faces when they showed up to “inquire” about an abuse or neglect case. Do you have any kind of back up at all? I grew up in the areas you are working so I am very much aware of the potential risks. Please be careful.

    I asked about Chelsea in Sept. How is she doing? Has she been adopted?
