Teresa the dog nearly had her snout cut off in an alleged act of cruelty in Thailand.
Although it doesn't sound like it, she was very lucky, according to Pennsylvania animal activist Michelle Weirich, a Glen Mills resident and one of two people working to give the dog a new start in the United States.
According to Weirich, Teresa’s alleged abusers were actually trying to cut off her head and turn her into dog meat for human consumption. She escaped and was saved by a small animal rescue in Thailand.
The plan now, according to Weirich, is to bring Teresa to the United States, specifically to the NorthStar VETS animal hospital in Robbinsville Township, New Jersey, where she will undergo medical care, starting with oral surgery.
As of Tuesday, $7,000 had been raised through GoFundMe.
