In Spanish, libre means free.
But when little Libre was surrendered to the Lancaster SPCA on Independence Day earlier this month, freedom was not something that he’d ever experienced. His horrific condition spoke volumes about the life he was forced to lead, and it was not a good one. Up to that point, he’d never been able to free himself from physical and emotional pain.
When volunteers from Speranza Animal Rescue found the little guy, their hearts broke when they saw the condition he was in. Although all hope seemed to be lost when they first laid eyes on Libre, the pup’s current state paints a far more inspiring picture.
Warning: Libre’s condition upon arriving at the shelter may be shocking to some readers.
