AN animal rescue worker has launched a scathing attack after a dog was abandoned. Banjo ate sticks for a week waiting for his master to return.
Brooke Rapozo, who works for the Kings SPCA Rescue centre in California, wrote a Facebook post which has since been viewed more than 1.2 million times slamming the “heartless scumbag” that abandoned Banjo.
The letter starts: ‘Dear The Callous POS (piece of s**t) owner of this dog. Today we noticed a couple of emails from people that had noticed your dog that had been abandoned … We decided to drive over and see if we could help. Sure enough there he was.
“He hadn’t left the place you made him stay. He was being a good dog. He stayed close to the last place he saw his favourite person in the world. He thought you were coming back.
“He was watching every car that would come down the road hoping it was you coming back for him. Your dog has been freezing, hungry, and scared for days because you are a heartless piece of crap.
“He waited for you,” the letter continued. “He was so hungry that he was eating sticks. Nice people had stopped to drop off food but he was still so hungry and confused. But even with food sitting in front of him he knew he had to wait for you to come back. He waited for you.
“He isn’t a bad dog. He is a very good dog. You were a bad friend. You abandoned someone that would give his life for you … Someone who would lick the tears off your cheeks and the leftover food from your plate when you were done eating.
“He won’t be waiting for you anymore,” Ms Rapozo wrote. “He howled the whole car ride to our shelter. He howled the most painful howl I have ever heard. It was the sound of his heart breaking.
“He desperately tried to get back to the spot that you left him. He frantically checked every window then watched out the back window as we drove away.
“His howls lasted until he came to the driver seat and howled at me. As I reached over to pet his head he looked at me so confused and laid his head on my lap and whined as we pulled up to the shelter.’
“You don’t deserve this amazing puppy. You don’t deserve any dog at all.
My dog will forget about you. He will find a good home and will get the love he deserves. He will know what it’s like to have a real home.
I don’t care who you are or your excuse as to why you abandoned my dog. It’s probably a BS reason anyways.
You are a scum bag. I pray your year is filled with karma and bad health.
Today, Banjo is a happy, healthy pup…
…and he’ll never be abandoned ever again.
God bless the kindhearted heroes who saved poor Bandit. If it wasn’t for people like them, so many more dogs would go without a second chance. If you agree, please SHARE this story with your friends on Facebook!
