Dog found starving to death in a Toowoomba home
ON JUNE 27 RSPCA inspectors found Ava starving to death in a Toowoomba home.
She was so malnourished she could not stand or walk.
"If our inspectors had not been alerted to her condition it is likely she wouldn't have lasted another day," an RSPCA spokesman said.
"Ava was hospitalised and our veterinarians are hopeful that she will make a full recovery."
The investigation into Ava's condition is ongoing, with inspectors likely to start proceedings against those responsible in the coming weeks.
"It is disheartening to think that any human can let an animal reach the point of starvation," the spokesman said.
"Anyone who sees animals like this is urged to contact the RSPCA 24/7 on our Animal Emergency Hotline 1300 ANIMAL (1300 264 625)."
The good news is Ava will soon be ready for a new, and loving home .
