- A dog thrown from a speeding truck was rushed to a nearby vet by Good Samaritans who witnessed the incident.
- After recovering, Freya was adopted by a couple, Gill and Ray, after hearing the dog’s story.
- Freya obviously suffered at the hands of her previous owner, but her new parents say she’s safe now.
A dog that was thrown from a truck traveling at 50 mph in January in Kent, England, miraculously survived. The dog, now named Freya, has found happiness and a forever home.
People who saw the incident rushed Freya to a nearby veterinarian’s office, which reported the cruelty to the RSPCA.
Freya arrived at the vet’s office very frightened, underweight, full of fleas, but lucky to be alive.
“Witnesses described her being thrown with such force that she landed on the opposite side of the road, and the vehicle didn’t stop or even slow down,” RSPCA inspector Kirsten Ormerod said.
The RSPCA launched an investigation into the incident, according to SWNS.
Freya underwent surgery and other medical treatments.
A local couple, Gill and Ray, learned of Freya’s story and welcomed the healing dog with open arms. After Freya recovered, a new home was waiting for her.
“Freya is really happy here and is always wagging her tail,” Gill said. “I lost my Jack Russell terrier in April, and we’d been thinking about getting another dog. I was so sad to hear about what had happened to Freya and thought we could give her a wonderful home,” she added.
Freya’s new parents describe her as “a bit naughty,” but they “love her just the way she is.”
“We have a trainer coming to help us as she is very scared around men and finds it difficult meeting other dogs,” Gill added. “But she’s been through so much that we know it’ll take her some time to understand that she’s safe now.”
Unfortunately, Freya’s story is one of many calls the RSPCA has responded to over the past year.
The animal welfare organization receives an average of 90,000 calls to its cruelty line every month in 2021 alone. The nonprofit investigated 6,000 reports of intentional animal cruelty last year. Sadly, the number of calls has increased to 134,000 a month this summer.
This story is just a reminder to be kind to every creature, every living thing, especially to the voiceless.
