Wanted: Possible WNY Animal Abuser Whose Abandoned Dog Has Died
The Erie County SPCA is seeking information about the owner of a dog who was abandoned and has now died from her injuries. The dog was found on Friday, July 22, 2022. She was left near death on Saint Joseph Avenue near West Shore and Fay Street in Buffalo. She had a severe injury to her right front leg when SPCA Animal Cruelty Officers Lindsey Wood and Jennifer Maleskis found her.
The SPCA officer took the dog to the Greater Buffalo Veterinary Emergency Clinic in Cheektowaga. She was in critical condition and in a compromised state. The dog, now named 'Faye' survived amputation surgery but was still at high risk of succumbing to her injuries.
On July 24, the SPCA provided a sad update on Faye,
Overnight, Officer Wood received news from the Greater Buffalo Veterinary Emergency Clinic that Faye’s initial tests and bloodwork results are not favorable. There is increased concern regarding her survival and infection that may have surpassed the point of treatment.
The following day, on July 25, Faye was responding to treatment for the infection but was still at high risk. On July 26, the SPCA updated its followers on Faye's condition, which was not good.
Despite the expert care Faye was receiving, Faye’s respiratory system was being impacted by severe inflammation and probable fluid accumulation in the lungs causing her distress. We had to release Faye from her pain and suffering.
If you have any information about Faye, or anyone responsible for her condition can call SPCA Officers Wood or Maleskis at 716-875-7360, ext. 214.
