After the vicious attack, The Garrido Stray Rescue Foundation in Chicago shared in a Facebook post that Bebe was out of surgery for a wound that damaged the dog’s diaphragm.

The following day they sent an update on Bebe’s recovery sharing that he was ‘still not out of the woods,’ but was ‘in good spirits and doesn’t seem to be in any pain.’   

A member of The Garrido Stray Rescue Foundation said they heard about the egregious crime when an officer from the 16th District notified them.  

‘Initially, the thought was to help the family pay the bill down with a generous matching $2,000 donation from our anonymous donor (thank you) which was half matched immediately by Penny Petersen,’ the rescue foundation wrote.

‘Premier Veterinary Group of Chicago helped by reducing our bill, as well – thank you caring people,’ they wrote. ‘Another rescue stepped us as well and we are touched.’ 

In the post, they mentioned other organizations that came forward to help including, Small Paws Rescue, and expressed gratitude for all the encouraging words, prayers and generous donations that helped cover Bebe’s medical expenses, and the doctor who performed the life saving surgery. 

‘We raised enough to cover Bebe’s follow up visit and help other voiceless victims of animal abuse,’ the post said. ‘We did it together. We saved Bebe!’ 

‘At the end, one person committed an unforgettable crime, but you all stepped up to help – incredibly amazing and heartwarming, turning this horrific experience to something positive.’ 

The teen, who was not identified because she is a minor, said she was traumatized by the experience.

‘Bebe, he is happy to be home and is recovering surrounded by his loving family,’ the foundation said.
