Saga Saves Simon
- Press Release, Saga Humane Society, January 18, 2011 - Simon was only a very small puppy when someone decided to tie some fishing line around his neck. Maybe they thought that this would work as a collar; or maybe they were just being cruel. As Simon grew, the fishing line did not grow with him. Instead it cut through his soft puppy skin, right through his neck – leaving him with an unimaginably horrific injury, virtually slitting Simon’s throat.
When the little boy walked through the doors of SAGA with a cute puppy in his arms, no one imagined what they were about to discover. The puppy was very sweet and calm but the little boy was nervous and wouldn’t give his name, tell anyone who the puppy belonged to or even who his parents were. When staff took a closer look at the puppy they were surprised to discover that the puppy’s whole neck was sliced through the flesh with the fishing line deeply embedded.
Simon is very lucky that this little boy knew that he could turn to SAGA Humane Society for help. He is even luckier that the staff at SAGA were determined to save his life. Simon was not a complainer and had lived with the terrible pain caused by this injury for some time –he was a fighter.
Due to SAGA’s hard work and tender loving care along with Simon’s determined nature, he is now a happy and healthy seven month old puppy looking for a brand new home. After all Simon has been through, this little guy definitely needs to find someone who will love and care for him and make sure he never has to suffer from abuse or neglect again.
Come and see Simon and his friends at SAGA Humane Society. They say a house is not a home without a good dog. If you see a dog that is injured or suffering call SAGA on 226-3266 and they will be there to help.
