Dire Cases

Home/Dire Cases

Dire Cases are dogs represent the ones left behind, dumped, abused and alone. They walk the streets, the beaches, the city alone, hungry, scared, hurt and abandoned. They need us. They need YOU. These dogs are awaiting their chance at FOREVER. While they wait, they will receive medical care for malnutrition, heart worm, mange, hookworms and/or broken bones.  Some are in foster, some are in boarding – All are waiting to come to NYBC to be free! Free from pain, loneliness, fear and sickness.
Please contribute to their journey from anguish to hope and love.
