Abandoned animals fight daily. Just finding food and water is an ordeal. Staying safe from the elements is another daily challenge. What many do not realize is that there are individuals who regard stray animals as ‘pests’ and really harm them. It’s touching, but it’s a reality in many countries that don’t have animal cruelty laws.
A little dog, who did nothing to anyone, was hit several times by a man under the influence.
When the dog, later named Leona, was found, she was totally helpless on the sidewalk. She had infected ears, balance problems and severely injured legs. The poor thing was so bad she couldn’t even get up. She was amazed, waiting for someone to rescue her.
Fortunately, someone did just that!
Leona, just a baby, was taken to the vet. The doctor knew immediately that she would need surgery to survive. Leona was in great pain too.
The doctor gave her pain medication immediately. You could see Leona as she cried real tears. But fortunately, things were about to change!
Leona’s surgery went very well. It will take time for her to recover, but so far she is recovering quickly. She is also with a loving (and animal savior) caregiver who plans to stop at nothing until she finds the perfect home. Let’s send our prayers to Leona! She deserves it!
