Paralyzed Dog Gets Wheels Taken Away Before Getting Dumped at Shelter

Angie’s former owners dumped her at the shelter but before abandoning her, they took away her wheelchair. She is paralyzed.

Angie used to walk on all fours, but after suffering an accident she was left paralyzed from her hind legs. Her owners used to love her, but on Feb. 21, 2016, they drove her to Miami-Dade Animal Services and surrendered her. If losing her home and family wasn’t horrible enough, the pet owners took off the wheelchair she used for mobility right before leaving her alone and scared at the shelter.

Urgent Dogs of Miami posted Angie’s story on their Facebook page and pleaded followers to help her.

“URGENT! Just when you think you’ve heard everything you could about crappy owners, you hear this,” said the post. “Angie is paralyzed and was just dumped at the shelter by her owners who took her wheelchair back with them!! Per shelter notes: Recommend transfer to a 24 hour care veterinary facility prior to 6:30 PM on 2/22/16 or humane euthanasia may be indicated.”

Animal lovers worked together and shared the dog’s story, saving her life. Lovey Loaves Inc., learned about Angie and immediately offered to take her in. They organized transport and the following day the unwanted and paralyzed dog was out of the shelter and on her way to a better life.

“Angie is out of the shelter, on the road and SAFE SAFE SAFE!” posted Lovey Loaves Inc.

Three hours later they said she was finally in their arms, was “filthy and in some pain” but the plan was to give her a bath, a warm place to sleep for the night and then it is off to the vet in the morning.

The organization said veterinarians would determine the extent of her injuries after running various tests. If the injuries could be reversed, Angie will get the medical assistance needed to get back on all four legs again. If nothing can be done, rescuers will fit her with her very own custom wheelchair, and this time, the wheels won’t be taken away.

  1. One can only hope they get dumped in a nursing home and stripped of their wheelchair and dignity, god what disgusting sub humans they are. MASSIVE thank you to the amazing people that rescued this poor angel, lets hope she lives her days out being cherished <3

  2. I’m dumbfounded. it’s one thing to dump the animal that loves you but to disrespect it further by taking its wheels? Like, dude, no. Just no.

  3. I’m embarrassed on a daily basis to be human. This poor baby, now maybe you’ll have a chance to learn what life is supposed to be like.

  4. I know this seems harsh, but people like that are useless. How can you treat a part of your family like that? heartless sociopaths. I recommend shooting them (the people, not the pets)

  5. OH MY GOD how are people so horrible?!!? Every time I read one of these awful (but happily ended) stories, I think of how overpopulated we are as a species and how maybe we could solve two problems at once if we culled all the animal abusers, neglecters, and abandoners.

  6. Geoffrey Charles Buls I think this is the worst one I’ve ever heard!!! ?
    I’ve followed her rescue site & she is now in good hands & getting a new wheels & lots of love. Poor bub

  7. Every time I read disgusting stories like this I give my doggie a big hug and tell her thank you for saving me and that I love her.

  8. who are her owners??? what can they possibly do with a dog’s wheelchair!? Fuck this angered me so much, seriously who are they. Post their names

  9. The identities of these heartless assholes should be publicized and they should be banned from ever having any other “pets.” Unbelievable.

  10. I would have taken their picture before they left and posted on every tv station and social media with t he caption :Heartless POS A==Holes!!!!! and told what they did! May they rot in hell someday!

  11. some one must know who they are and put a reward out then pay the reward out of the action taken eg sell there car or there house to pay for the up keep of there dog

  12. What the hell is wrong with people? It’s bad enough to dump the dog, but why take her wheelchair? What possible use could they have for it? Cruel & thoughtless people, they never deserved this dog in the first place & hopefully she will have a wonderful life ahead of her.

  13. Poor angel…. 🙁 I just can’t even deal with the awful things humans do to animals. Most days I far prefer animals to humans.

  14. My only question is: what the fuck are they going to do with a dog wheelchair? It literally has no other function except for hemiplegic dogs.

  15. A POS would do that to that sweet dog. They will get it in the end. They didn’t deserve that adorable dog. Hope she finds a loving home

  16. No accounting for people who make such choices for their fur kids with no explanation. This poor baby now has a chance at a new life complete with love and new wheels. Thank you to all the folks involved in saving this precious dogs life.

  17. Omg! What a horrible person this beautiful doggie looks like my dog I would think of think who in their right mind would take away this doggie’s smile and happiness? !

  18. Hope one day they’ll need a wheelchair or walker and it gets taken away. Also they need to be brought out and prosecuted. Low life scum.

  19. I volunteer with a Schnauzer Rescue group and you wouldn’t even begin to believe what people with no consciences or hearts do, with precious fur babies!!! So sad….

  20. May people like that receive justice 10 – fold.
    Don’t understand why they’d remove her wheels , that’s beyond being crazy sick. May she have a much happier life …♡

  21. I continue to be shocked at the people that aren’t just jerks, disrespectful, snobs, bully’s, but the violence and severe abusive people who get a fix out of hurting and torturing others..what is causing all this?

  22. They are not human, they are monsters. No human would do that to a dog. It is my wish that Karma come to them in full force and may the slap be severe. I hope the best for the doggie. May she thrive in her new fur ever home.
