Arizona Humane Society caring for dog stabbed multiple times by owner
PHOENIX — The Arizona Humane Society is treating a dog that was stabbed multiple times by its owner earlier in the week in southwest Phoenix.
The 3-year-old redbone hound was found Tuesday in the area of 35th and Southern avenues and the dog’s “neck and chest were soaked in blood,” according to a press release.
The dog was transported to the Arizona Humane Society’s trauma hospital on Wednesday after spending Tuesday night being stabilized at an overnight clinic.
Chest and abdominal x-rays showed the dog had three 1.5 centimeter lacerations. One laceration resulted in a torn trachea, according to the release.
The dog is a on a protective custody hold until July 19 and will continue to receive treatment.
The Arizona Humane Society said more than 11,000 animals are treated by its trauma hospital each year.
The center is waiving adoption fees on all adoptable pets on Friday and Saturday in an effort to make space for additional sick and injured pets.
