The dog Cindy, who appeared in a video circulating on social networks in which she was attacked by her owner, was rescued this Thursday morning (27) and is now looking for someone who wants to adopt her forever.
The dog is at the Animal and Flora Police Department, in the Carlos Prates neighborhood, Northwest Belo Horizonte. If it does not find a new owner by this Thursday, it will be sent to the Center for Zoonosis Control (CCZ). If you are interested, please contact the phone number at the end of the article.
The video, which caused a stir on social media last Tuesday (25) and caused outrage, showed Cindy’s owner attacking her while she was tied up. The woman lifted the dog’s leg and used flip-flops on its genitals.
ATTENTION! The images may be considered disturbing.
The post was made by the attacker’s neighbor and reached more than 12 thousand shares. In the video, the animal’s owner is still arguing and splashes water on the woman who is protecting the dog.
This Thursday, police officers from the Specialized Crime Against Animals Police Station arrived in the neighborhood of Providencia, north of the capital, where they rescued the animal. The owner has been reported for abuse and will face legal action for the crime.
State representative Fred Costa (Patriota) watched, filmed and posted the video rescuing Cindy on social networks. Look:
Cindy needs a permanent home , not a temporary adoption. Those interested in adopting this dog should contact the Animal and Plant Police Department by phone: (31) 3242-1356 or 99894-7069 (Tárcio).
If she is not adopted, she will be sent to CCZ, where she must undergo medical procedures, be readied for adoption, and even return to the streets. “The time limit for the animal to be claimed by the owner is two days. They are then made available for adoption and survive for 15 to 20 days. Dog and cat adoptions take place at the CCZ facility, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. This is an effort to prevent them from returning to the streets,” Zoonoses said.
Check out Zoonoses’ full notes:
“The Zoonosis Control Center is responsible for rescuing abandoned dogs and cats in Belo Horizonte. Collected animals undergo veterinary clinical examination at the unit, have complete specimens, are vaccinated against rabies, controlled for external and internal parasites, castrated and microchipped. In dogs, serological testing is also performed to diagnose visceral leishmaniasis.
The time limit for the animal to be reclaimed by the owner is two days. They are then made available for adoption and survive for 15 to 20 days. Dog and cat adoptions take place at the CCZ facility, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. This is an effort to prevent them from returning to the streets.
If the animal is not adopted, it will return to a location near where it was captured so as not to lose its connection to the community. It is important to emphasize that the animals return in better conditions, with the possibility of birth control, vaccines, parasite control and microchips, allowing tracking of the animal’s trajectory. This rotation needs to happen so other animals have the same opportunity to be cared for.”
