Meadow the dog was found starving and abandoned in the woods in Buchanan, Michigan. Her leash was tied around her legs and she was locked in a cramped carrier with no hope of escape.
"I actually heard the dog whimpering and then I heard crying, so I texted one of the coworkers and said I think there's something in the woods crying and I'm pretty sure it's a dog," said Danielle Hradel, who found Meadow.
Meadow was in such bad shape, she couldn't even sit up on her own. With veterinary care, her condition is improving, but her legs are still not fully functional, according to a Facebook update.
Buchanan City Police and Berrien County Animal Control are investigating this case, but no arrests have been made yet. Sign the petition urging the Buchanan police chief to put every effort into finding and prosecuting Meadow's abuser -- and to ensure that this sick individual is never allowed to have an animal again.
