When rescuers came, they found her hiding beside a dirty plastic dog kennel that was covered with blood and had a hole where the dog bit her way out.

Deep cuts to her chest, neck, shoulders, forelimbs, and face were among the many injuries associated with organized dogfighting.

Infection is a worry due to the extent of some of her injuries, so doctors have implanted drains in her most serious lacerations to promote healing.

She will very certainly need another operation.

“Gilly obviously experienced severe pain over time, and it’s doubly awful to think this was done for someone’s pleasure,” said Lisa LaFontaine, CEO and President of the HRA, in a statement.

“We take animal fighting extremely seriously, and putting an end to this terrible behavior demands the attention and voice of our whole community.”

HRA is currently offering a $5,000 prize for information leading to the identification of the person(s) responsible for dumping Gilly.
