Reader Email: I’ve been trying to deal with this situation without involving the media. However, no one is doing anything and I have no other option. On Friday, a 9 year old cocker spaniel came in my work (vet clinic in Worcester) for an “ear appointment”. When the dog got to the clinic, our reception girls noticed the dogs face was super swollen. They then realized why. The dog had three rubber bands tied around her muzzle. We immediately took the dog in back and started treating.

The owner is elderly, blind, and super sick. She can’t take care of herself, never mind her animals. Her PCA is in charge of taking care of the animals, and I believe he is the one who put the rubber bands around the dogs muzzle. But we do not have proof. (The PCA lives in the house) I tried calling Worcester animal control multiple times, left messages.. And they have not returned my calls.

I then contacted MSPCA. They investigated and told me we have to give the dog back and if in two weeks anything got worse, we can then either go to court or take the animals depending on what happens. But won’t charge anyone because there’s no proof who did it.

So you’re telling me it takes something worse than wrapping three rubber bands around a dogs muzzle for something to be done? So I’ve left messages with animal rescue league of Boston and I am waiting to hear back. I’ve also reached out to the news in hope we can get the story to go viral so we can do something for this poor dog. It absolutely disgusts me that someone would even do that to a dog, never mind the fact that no one is doing anything about it. What is wrong with this world?! The laws need to be changed!!!

Well that’s not good. What’s the point of owning a dog if you’re gonna muzzle it? Because barking is just something that kind of comes with the package when you get a dog. It’s like having a kid and then getting mad when the kid cries and shits everywhere. And what’s the point of the MSPCA if they’re gonna let stuff like this slide? Is it standard procedure to give a dog back to someone who has obviously been abusing it like this? And didn’t they think ti would be a smart idea to take the rubber bands off BEFORE they went to the vet? Are they that stupid? Dogs deserve to have homes where they can be themselves and bark at the mailman until the cows come home. Where my dogs at?? Free my dogs!!!

    Maybe someone needs to staple his lips together, then superglue his fingertips to his hands so he can’t get his grimy fingers on the paycheck that he doesn’t deserve! DOGS ARE THE NICEST PEOPLE ON EARTH…

    You could try calling Elder Protective Services. For Worcester area it’s Springwell. You can get more info from Elder Services of Worcester (ESWA). My concern is if the PCA is doing this to his client’s dog, what might he be willing to do his client?

      That’s a great observation & suggestion. Heck at very least it will reach more people.

      I would also suggest a social media post and ask people to share. As many fools have learned, you dont always need the media to spark attention on a situation that someone with authority needs to pay attention too.

    Said it before, I’ll keep saying it. People suck. Dogs are the kindest creatures on earth. Most people don’t deserve them.

    I couldn’t look at the pictures. It would have really ruined my day. I’m one of those weird people who feel pure sadness when dogs are mistreated.

    I think it was nice of TB to write this article, at least someone is willing to help.

    Call the media, email PETA ( I know, they can be crazy but this is a desperate situation.) What can I do to help??

      Don’t call PETA – they’ll just kill the poor animal.
