pit bull with cast on legs lays on bed

When the ASPCA arrived at the home of Remy’s former owner in June 2013, we found a one-year-old Pit Bull who was too weak to stand and lying in a cage with feces and urine. The owner surrendered Remy to us, and we immediately took action to offer relief to the sweet, suffering canine.

The neighbors heard a dog cry out in pain on more than one occasion. A young Pit Bull named Remy, allegedly the victim of repeated abuse, needed help. When we arrived at the scene in June 2013, we found a gentle puppy who was so weak and frail, she couldn’t even stand.

Remy’s owner surrendered the suffering pup, who was brought to the ASPCA where she received immediate veterinary care for a host of ailments. She had two broken legs, skin disease and severe muscle atrophy.


After intensive treatment, which included surgery and hydrotherapy, Remy began to heal, but she will always walk with a limpa reminder of all she has overcome. Please take a moment to watch and share our video of Remy’s amazing recovery.

Of course, millions of other animals still need us, so we’re also thankful that we can count on you as we fight for their lives, too. We hope you'll consider giving today if you possibly can. It means the world to us, and to every animal we can assist together.

What did happen to Remy's owner? That's the news that should follow up after these horrible stories are told. We need to hear justification is done to these heartless freaks.


I would truly love to know the location of the previous owners. I never overlook animal cruelty when i see it. I try and avoid violence, but i wont leave the animal in the abusers care. I just wish more people would take a stand. It has never taken long for me to find animals caring homes, i have boarded starved horses (most will cut their rates to help) vets have helped puppies etc for little or no money, it almost seems the people just need someone to act and then they all pitch in and help, it was that way everytime in 5 seperate syates i was stationed in. Now as a disabled veteran, im more limited in ability, but even now i have goat, puppy and 2 horses boarded. Im just 1 person n those 4 animals r happy i found them, imagine if we all banded together how many animals could be helped. The aspca and others do their best, but their space is limited. Open ur home or yard, maybe buy a $10 bag of food / feed, report abuse when u see it or give the owner the choice i do, hand over the animal or deal with the cops!
I just wish folks would quit saying how much they admire me or how great i am, n they got involved n done something.
