Benjy survived being shot multiple times in the head by his owner. Without urgent rescue, other animals suffering cruelty right now will not be so lucky
Benjy was barely more than a year old when his owner raised his rifle, took aim and fired into his own dog at close range. Some of the rifle pellets pierced Benjy's skull and lodged in his head. Another struck him in the neck. Any one of the bullets could have cost poor Benjy his life.
It was five days before a kind stranger came across Benjy and brought him to safety. We know that's how long he suffered because of the fly larvae that had started to develop on his fur. Barely more than a puppy, he was just dumped like rubbish and left to die. Miraculously, Benjy survived long enough for an RSPCA Animal Rescue Team to get him to a vet for specialist treatment and emergency surgery.
There's no doubt that his attacker's terrible cruelty changed Benjy's life forever. Thankfully, Benjy made a fantastic recovery after surgery and now has a forever happy home with other dogs to play with. It's thanks to RSPCA supporters like you, that he has been given a second chance in life.
