A beautiful dog was left muzzled and tied to a tree in central Florida after having been abandoned by his owner on Thursday evening. The Pittie Party of Central Florida, a non profit rescue organization, has stepped up to help with this heartbreaking but disturbing situation.

THIS is what is wrong with society. THIS is proof that humans are the problem. In a world currently filled with so much uncertainty, this is the lowest of low. While we empathize with the toll this pandemic is taking on humans right now, this is unforgivable. A citizen just called our rescue panicking about a dog that has been discarded like his life meant nothing; tied to a tree with a simple note. his mouth has been bound with a muzzle even though he appears to be extremely friendly. We will never accept this as being “okay.” How could the only person he’s ever loved, abandon him during a time like this? Our rescue would like to save this poor dog. HOWEVER: WE ARE IN NEED OF A FOSTER/ADOPTER AND PLEDGES IN ORDER TO HELP HIM. We are a foster based rescue and rely 100% on community donations. We do not have a facility where we can house dogs and unlimited money hanging around. WE NEED YOUR HELP! 🙏🏻 Since we have no medical history on Lincoln, he will need a full medical work up as well as supplies. YOU CAN MAKE A PLEDGE BY COMMENTING YOUR PROMISED AMOUNT ON THIS POST. We won’t collect pledges unless we are able to save him. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FOSTERING OR ADOPTING, PLEASE SEND US A PRIVATE MESSAGE. We are a volunteer based rescue and have a lot of responsibilities. We are not always able to look and respond to every comment on a post. PLEASE SHARE THIS POST. THIS DOG NEEDS US. Thank you for all of your continual support.

According to the rescue group, a citizen called the rescue reporting the dog had been left tied to a tree with a simple note stating the owner was going to California to help his mother during the coronavirus pandemic. The dog’s mouth had been bound with a muzzle even though he appeared to be very friendly.
“Unbelievable!!!! I can hardly even find the words to write about this. THIS is what is wrong with society. THIS is proof that humans are the problem. In a world currently filled with so much uncertainty, this is the lowest of low. While we empathize with the toll this pandemic is taking on humans right now, this is unforgivable,” the rescue organization posted on their Facebook page.
Lincoln is safe at the rescue, and once the legalities are worked out, he will be made available for adoption. He appears to be dog friendly but does not do well around cats.
If interested in giving this boy a home or donating to help, please contact The Pittie Party of Central Florida.
Many thanks to the heroes helping those who cannot speak.
