Woman Saves Pet Frozen to the Ground in Public Park

Jennifer Williams was walking her dog in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park yesterday morning when she came across a skinny black dog tied to a tree. The pet had been abandoned long enough that her paws froze to the ground. The woman saved her from freezing to death, and even though the pet has been rescued, her life is not out of the woods yet.

Williams told NBC 4 New York she found the abandoned dog by pure chance. Her own dog broke lose from the leash and led the woman to the discarded lab-pit mix.

“She wouldn’t stand up for me,” said Williams, “so I just wrapped the coat around her and picked her up.”

While carrying her home, the kind woman noticed blood dripping from the dog’s paws and that’s when she realized the pooch had been frozen to the ground.

Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Windsor Terrace was called to help the injured dog. She was rushed to a veterinarian and it was determined that aside from the paw injuries, the dog also suffers other serious ailments. Vets and rescuers are not sure if she will make a full recovery, but everyone involved hopes she has a fighting spirit and pulls through.

Sean Casey says the lab-pit mix is only alive today because Williams found her and reached out for help.

  1. My husband always used to say that there is a Special Hell for Certain People who do Terrible things.
    So I will hope that the person who did this to Bindi, suffers for a long time before going to that Special Hell.

    I wrote, she is going through surgery to have a piece of metal removed from her stomach !!! metal ? good god that poor pup.

  2. And I bet the majority of the people commenting on here support late term and partial birth abortions.

    • yiddishlion What the heck are you talking about when it come to supporting abortion anyway. You are saying the people on here are supporting late term and partial birth abortions. You are sick and I for one don’t support abortion. I am sure that the people on here are not supporters of abortion either especially if they support animal cruelty and animal suffering. The people on here supporters of life for every living thing for sure.
      Thank you Jennifer Williams for saving and helping this precious little baby pup and thank you for all the work that you do everyday to help all the helpless animals out there. It just makes me sick when I see or hear about dirt bags that do these terrible things to all those innocent dogs and other animals out there. I hope that the person that did that to that poor baby goes to prison and Bubba gets you real good and them some.

  3. I think they should do everything that was done to him to the person who left him tied to the tree .

  4. Thnak you Miss lawrence for helping and thankful for her dog too i am sure he sensed it and broke loose
