Deep within the back streets of Hialeah, Miami, Archelaus lived his life chained among garbage and his own filth. Today on her feeding route where there are farms and fighting rings, a rescuer came across Archelaus. He was begging for attention, a new friend. The rescuer spoke to the owner and asked if he would surrender him, at which point he then proceeded to pour motor oil all over Archelaus, right in from of the rescuer. She then called Animal Control. When AC arrived, the owner quickly surrendered him. Archelaus is now on his way to our vet in Miami. He is a huge, handsome boy with terrible skin condition. We will update after his evaluation, but for now, Archelaus is safe and out of the wretched clutch of his former owner. Please help us help Archelaus.
