Arizona Humane Society responds to call after two dogs were stabbed multiple times.

PHOENIX – Arizona Humane Society investigators responded to a call to assist Phoenix Police at a residence where two dogs were stabbed multiple times, according to authorities.

AHS rushed the two dogs to its own Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital in an attempt by veterinarians to stop the bleeding and assess their overall condition.

Mindy, a 4-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier, had two large, open stab wounds on her neck. Mindy also was found with tick fever, scabs throughout her body and a thin coat.

Vets rushed Mindy into surgery where they stabilized her by tying off the bleeding vessel in her dorsal wound. The second dog passed away due to her wounds.

AHS said that Mindy is very timid and scared within her kennel, but AHS’ staff has found that “she loves hot dogs and REALLY loves chicken.”

Mindy will soon be sent to an AHS Foster Hero home for additional recovery and socialization until it is time for adoption.

On Aug. 6, Phoenix Police arrested and booked Feliciana Garcia on two counts of Animal Cruelty, but the investigation remains ongoing.
