A small terrier mix was dumped in Elysian Park in Los Angeles, California. Traumatized and untrusting of humans, she found security under a car. Hope For Paws volunteers joined forces with Bill Foundation workers and were able to get her out from under the automobile.
She was taken straight to a vet where they discovered she had 22 puncture wounds on her body, as the result of being attacked by a wild animal, after being abandoned. It’s pretty crumby to leave a house pet on the streets where they have no survival skills and are not able to feed, and have no idea how to fight or defend themselves.
She was named Madeline, and she’s already found her happy ending. She was adopted a few weeks later.
Thanks Volunteers for all of your inspiring work and stories.
