A normal routine for a landlord in the Kenilworth Park neighborhood took a chilling turn when he found a whimpering puppy among a pile of debris beside the residence.

The landlord was visiting his rental property with the intention to collect a late rent payment from one of his tenants. After noticing that the person wasn't around, he also noticed that the property was full of filth and mounds of garbage. That's when he heard a whimpering sound of an animal and immediately attempted to search for it and called 311 for assistance.

Baltimore City Animal Control arrived at the property and were able to locate the hurt puppy by following the sounds of its cries. 

There she was, underneath all the piles of trash that they worked to dig up. They found Henrietta tossed away like garbage with just a bowl of water. She was just skin and bones, unable to walk, with just a little once of hope.

Henrietta was then sent to the care of BARCS Veterinary Technician where she was cared for and is now currently fighting for her life at the Frank Fund Clinic ER.
