A puppy that was found with a hairband tightly tied around its mouth was turned over to a shelter for animals that does not euthanize.
The hairband was so deeply embedded that it caused swelling and made her face triple in size, reaching down to the bone. However, Cincinnati Animal CARE came forward to provide Tiffany with prompt medical attention. They removed the hairband and stitched up the large hole. The shelter named her Tiffany, after their favourite pop artist from the eighties.
According to reports on the animal center’s Facebook page, it is believed that a hairband was used to prevent a young puppy from barking, in a similar manner to zip ties. The extent of the abuse Tiffany suffered was shocking. Fortunately, she received emergency care and is currently being looked after by a Good Samaritan who found her. She is recovering well, with her swelling significantly reduced and her face healing after being sewn up. Authorities are seeking information about Tiffany and her abuser, and PETA has offered a reward for any leads that result in an arrest. If you have any information, please contact Hamilton County Dog Wardens at 513-541-7387.
