KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A pit bull is recovering after being rescued from terrible conditions.

She was found with no food, water or shelter by Chain of Hope volunteers.  It was nearly 100 degrees that day.

Animal control officers removed the dog from the house.  She was barely able to stand up. Chain of Hope is working to nurse her back to health.

"Starvation is the main one, dehydrated.  It is going to take a long time to build her back up," volunteer Kate Quigley said.

Volunteers from Chain of Hope are out in Kansas City six days a week looking for dogs in trouble.
