Dogs Emmy and Oscar found in abandoned house


While on a regular neighborhood patrol, Chicago police officers overheard bone-chilling shrieks coming from an abandoned house. Unable to ignore the noise, the officers decided to enter the house and investigate.

The scene they stumbled upon was awful. They took action as soon as they realized what they were looking at; it was a shock, to say the least.

Officers on a routine patrol in their Chicago neighborhood heard pained cries ringing out from a nearby abandoned home. They knew they had to investigate, and approached the house with caution.

Inside they saw two dogs huddled together—nothing more than skin and bones—crying in pain. The animals were malnourished beyond belief, and the officers brought them to Trio Animal Foundation for help immediately.

The rescue center did everything they could to hydrate and stabilize the poor dogs, who were barely able to move because of their weakened states. It was evident from their protruding ribs and hips that these dogs could have been starving in that home for weeks, and something needed to be done fast.

The two pups were named Emmy and Oscar. Emmy weighed only 20 pounds, and Oscar was so underfed rescuers worried he wouldn’t make it. But they had a strong will to live, and in three months, they regained their health and seemed as happy as ever.

They couldn’t stay at the animal shelter forever, of course, so the hunt for a permanent solution began. Luckily, Emmy was adopted by a loving family who already had a dog friend for her to play with at home!

Oscar lucked out, too, and was taken in by an adoring family where he’ll get all the love and care he needs.

Thank goodness those officers went out of their way to help Emmy and Oscar. Because the dogs were found just in time, they get to enjoy another shot at life, and that’s not something that happens every day.
