The poor animal was suffering from a horrifying range of medical problems. Angel was completely emaciated, suffering from severe hypothermia, anemia, dehydration and had fallen into a coma, all to the indifference of the people entrusted to care for him.Sadly, it was too late for the canine, and he passed away at the veterinary center with the volunteer who tried to rescue him by his side.
