UPDATE - We are very sad to report that Champion has crossed over Rainbow's Bridge. Due to the severe neglect that he suffered in the hands of his Owner he could not be saved.

Severe Case of Abuse and Neglect

Featured on WOWTV Channel 6 News

We were contacted regarding several animals who were not being cared for in a rural area in Nebraska. The report came in that nobody was living on the property as the Owners had moved. So, we did some research and found out who the Owners were and contacted them. One of the animals living there was named Zeus.
