Saving one animal will not change the world, but for that one animal the world will change forever.
This girl is doing WONDERFUL. Her family says she is the BEST dog in the ENTIRE world!
Some wonderful people helped chip in towards this girl's care.... she is on the road to recovery!! YES...finally, this pup will soon know what it feels like to walk withOUT hurting. Our rescue struggles enough with 'routine' care. A special case like this is completely out of our reach without the generous help of kind hearted people.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Pictures after her surgery
Since this girl was forced to live on her own for so long, it was no surprise that she started trying to remove the staples holding her leg together. I am sure there was many times she picked 'foreign objects' off her. Survival mode kicks in. Well....now she gets to wear the cone until she heals up abit. A small price to pay for future comfort!
A dog in a drainage ditch in desperate need of help
October 11, 2011
This young girl (approximately 10 months old) has been leading a horribly painful life. She had been hanging out in a drainage ditch between Taco Bell and Walmart. The ditch goes under the road. People had tried to lure her to them with food but she was definitely in survival mode and having a hard time trusting anyone. I, personally, tried a couple times to get her. An employee at Taco Bell had been feeding her steak everyday and still could not get close enough to pet her. It took a little chihuahua and a girl named Bekah to finally relax her so that she would surrender. Every since that first touch, she has been nothing but super sweet. We knew she had a pretty bad limp the whole time but was assuming it was strained from her travels.
We were wrong.
She has a fractured leg and it looks pretty bad.
