Please help Lindy? SPCA ETX needs help saving the life of an abused dog
Every time we hear about an abused animal, our hearts break. But, in some cases, when the abuse is as severe as it is, it is almost difficult for us to understand the level of cruelty.
Dogs are filled with unconditional love. These creatures love us more than they love themselves and often even their own kind. Many of us just can’t understand how some people can treat an animal so cruelty.
Even though animal cruelty has been elevated to a crime, that doesn’t mean we can always prevent it from happening, heartbreaking as it may be.
One more reason why we are so grateful to organizations such as the East Texas SPCA. They urgently need our help right now.
We would like to introduce “Lindy” to you. Our hearts break when we hear of his struggle. She took intravenous fluids and the great people of the East Texas SPCA are fighting for his life. This is Lindy’s story.

“Meet Lindy, officially from Lindale.
Lindy is the product of ignorance, neglect and physical abuse. A Good Samaritan filed a cruelty complaint with the East Texas SPCA to report a dog howling in pain as a young disabled child beat her and pricked her with sticks. To make matters worse, Lindy was starving and had sores covering her entire body.
Not ONE member of the family thought there was a problem with Lindy! Yesterday the East Texas SPCA ended the neglect and with the help of the Lindale Police Department we were able to remove Lindy and a 3 month old puppy we named Amelia from their situation.
Once at the SPCA Snippet Clinic, it was discovered that Lindy was suffering from both scabies mites and demodex mites. These mites created an itch so intense that it scratched deep sores on its sides, leaving them open to secondary bacterial and yeast infections.
Over time, Lindy lost all of her hair and built up thick scabs covering her body from head to tail. Yesterday Lindy had practically given up on life. Today she is starting a new life with us here at the East Texas SPCA. It will be a long road to recovery, but Lindy will no longer admire an owner with love in her eyes as he neglects and beats her. Today Lindy will receive the medical care she needs and the comfort she deserves.
The East Texas SPCA is in desperate need of help covering Lindy’s significant medical bills.
Let’s show him what the power of caring people can do !! ”
Here are the photos of Lindy, and as mentioned above, they are very difficult to see. We will place the donation link at the bottom. Any help you can give would be most appreciated.

Granted, a few of these exotics are regulated and will require permits.
