What is wrong with people? Who can starve an innocent animal? It happened in Central New York, but thankfully a Good Samaritan came to the rescue to save the poor pooch.

Unfortunately, Anita's Stevens-Swan Humane Society faces the reality of abandoned animals more often than not.

Gremmy was the latest dog to come into the Humane Society after bring found abandoned on Dudley Avenue in Utica. "He was carried in lethargic and severely emaciated, just hanging in the arms of his rescuer," the Humane Society said.

Severe Malnourished & Dehydrated

Gremmy was taken to the New Hartford Animal Hospital for severe malnourishment and dehydration. He was instantly put on fluid and checked for various diseases.

"While we can never know who exactly put Gremmy in this predicament, we can promise that he will never have to feel this way again. Our team did a great job at taking action, keeping Gremmy comfortable and safe, and using the proper methods to make sure he was receiving the best care for his condition."
