Pit bull rescued by NYPD from Queens trash receptacle is ready to be adopted from ASPCA

A 3-year-old pit bull, rescued by police after being found emaciated inside a Queens trash receptacle, is now ready to be adopted, authorities said Sunday.

Police first found Sammi on Sept. 9 when someone called 911 to report a puppy dumped by the corner of 157th Street and 145th Road in the Springfield Gardens area of Queens.

She was emaciated, with her ribs, spine and hip bones visible. Now, Sammi is finally ready to be adopted.
