Roaming animals battle daily. Just finding food and water is an ordeal, writes Pawmypets Staying safe from the elements is one more everyday challenge. What lots of don’t recognize is that there are individuals that consider stray animals to be ‘pests’ and will actually hurt them.
It’s heartbreaking however it’s a reality in many nations that do not have laws against animal cruelty. One puppy, that did nothing to anyone, was struck multiple times by a guy high on drugs. Her injuries became life-threatening.
When the puppy, later on called Leona, was located, she lay completely helpless on the sidewalk. She had infected ears, balance issues, and terribly hurt legs. She was in such bad shape that she could not also stand up. She was splayed out, waiting for someone to rescue her.
Fortunately, someone did just that! Leona, just a baby, was taken to the veterinarian. The doctor knew immediately that she would certainly need surgical treatment in order to survive. Leona was also in a lot of pain.
The doctor gave her IV pain medication immediately. You could see Leona as she cried actual tears. However fortunately, things will change!
Leona’s surgery went very well. It’s going to take time for her to recover however until now, she’s healing fast. She’s also with a caring caregiver (and animal rescuer) who plans to stop at nothing until she locates the perfect home. Let’s send our prayers out to Leona! She deserves it!
