The dogs, who seemed to be Yorkshire Terriers, were covered in ants, feces and urine. They had no access to water or food.

Tanya rescued them and helped them get emergency treatment at Pasco Animal Services, but it was too late for one of the dogs, who died of a severe heatstroke.

The surviving dog was named Eli and taken in by Tampa’s “Maxx and Me Pet Rescue”. His dirty fur has been shaved off and his health is on the mend.

Eli is a sweet baby who showers every human  he meets with face licks! The shelter has put him up for adoption.

The Pasco County Animal Services are hoping to find the person responsible for torturing and abandoning these animals.

Leaving an animal to die such horrific deaths is really one of the most sickening acts ever. We hope the person is caught soon.

Spread the word so that it reaches far and wide and the cruel abuser is caught.

Check out the video below to watch the heartbreaking condition in which the dogs were found.
