S-T-E-L-L-A!

My previous post was about an elderly German Shepherd I rescued from the pound and nursed back to health. This post is about two angels in the form of two sweet little girls, who suggested to their parents that this dog be named Stella and that she should “come home and live with us as she is such a gentle appreciative soul”.

Stella was old and left unclaimed at the pound with a serious illness, the chance for being adopted was slim, she would be overlooked and sad to say, she would have been put to sleep. With your support and donations, I was able to take her in, the rest I left to fate. Within a month, she has a wonderful new home and is much loved and doted on by two little girls.

“Because they exist they have value and deserve to be here.”

Is this dog worth saving?

Posted in Haven Blog tagged , , , at 5:52 pm by havenoftheheart

Two weeks ago this German Shepherd required urgent surgery for a football-sized pyometra. She was left in the pound unclaimed so I got her released and took her to my vet for immediate surgery to save her life. The operation was costly to say the least, but the question “is she worth saving?” NEVER EVER crossed my mind. I am pleased to say that she is recovering and is doing well!

How could anyone neglect and cast off a living creature just like that and not wonder how she could survive? This person must be heartless. However, I am turning my energy to nurse this dog back to health and give her all the love she deserves to make up for the time when she had none. With your continuous donations and support, we are saving and loving them, one critter at a time.
