Dog Found Burned And Neglected Is Now Recovering
young dog who was found burned and neglected is in recovery.
The dog named Hudson was sent to local non-profit, The Sanctuary Project, for extended care. The Sanctuary Project founder, Amy Cubillas, said Hudson is currently at a foster home.
“It’s going to take some time before we can even administer topical treatment because he’s raw,” said Cubillas of Hudson’s wounds.
She said she has witnessed more animal cruelty incidents lately.
“What we are seeing lately is just this wave,” she said. “I’m not sure what it is, but it’s widespread.”
Cubillas said The Sanctuary Project receives more than 30 requests each day to care for animals in need. She said the non-profit does not have the resources to care for them all.
“If we are able to garner more support I can only imagine that we wouldn’t have to say no as much.”
Cubillas said her non-profit can care for about 30 dogs and 10 cats at a time. She said that she hopes to expand the organization to be able to help more animals.
Cubillas said the community support “has been overwhelming”. More than $1,700 has been donated to Hudson’s medical costs. Cubillas said Hudson’s medical costs will be about $10,000. Hudson also may require surgery, which would increase the cost.

Cubillas said donations have also come in to offer a reward for information leading to the arrest of the person(s) who abused Hudson. As of Wednesday night, nearly $3,000 had been raised for the reward.
To donate, Cubillas said to call the Santa Cruz Animal Center 520-761-7860.
Cubillas said The Sanctuary Project is looking for new volunteers. She said volunteers can deliver food to foster homes, transport dogs to veterinary appointments, plan fundraising events, work in the store to represent animals, foster animals and foster special-needs animals.
To get involved, contact The Sanctuary Project at 800-691-9168.
The Sanctuary Project has a store that gives a percentage of the profits to the organization. It is located at The Pet Doctor at 6464 N. Oracle Rd. The store also accepts donations.
It is open Monday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
