GRAPHIC PHOTO: Dogs Covered in Tar Rescued


ODESSA, TX – The Odessa Human Society is asking for the public's help after two dogs were found covered in tar in the Permian Basin.

According to reports, on Sep. 18, 2023, the two dogs were found inside of a tar pit that for some reason was in a truck. The scene was so bad that the two dogs were stuck inside and crews had to force them out.

“They had it in their eyeballs, it was in their mouths, it was in their nose and the longer they sat the more it just stuck so I’m sure it was very painful,” said Humane Society of Odessa Executive Director Heather Silvia to CBS7.

The two pups were taken to a clinic where a vet performed life saving surgery that took over 10 hours. The Humane Society has taken custody of the dog. To help fund the surgery click the link here.
