SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A San Diego rescue group's efforts to save abused dogs continues, with two more canines getting a second chance at life here in the U.S.
Paws4Thought spoke with 10News in May when they successfully brought over Silver, an 18-month-old Israeli herding dog left to die in Iran. Silver was found brutally beaten and paralyzed before being brought to the U.S.
Silver is currently being cared for by a foster family here in San Diego.

Now, the group tells 10News they've successfully brought two more dogs to the U.S. from Iran, Kit Kat and Hero. Both of dogs have been abused so badly, they too are paralyzed.
"Kit Kat was unfortunately found tied to a tree with children, I believe, actually flogging him with sticks and bricks and beating him," Babs Fry, a canine foster care giver, told 10News's Bree Steffen. "[Hero] very similar. He was just beat with sticks and bricks."
The group will now look for a loving family to care for the dogs.
