Through the suffering, the will to live shined

(Last Updated On: March 9, 2021)

It was a dark and stormy night…Madeline was found soaking wet, emaciated and covered in mud. Her rescuers tried to get her to eat, but she was too weak. And, there appeared to be something wrong with her right back leg.

They took her to the vet and discovered she had at some point survived a hip fracture, possibly at birth. The vet recommended euthanasia. A decision had to be made.

Through all of this, Madeline was a fighter and it was obvious to her rescuer that she had a strong will to survive hardship and pull through. And so she did!

With the TLC of a dedicated foster, Madeline gained weight, learned to navigate the house, run, jump and play with her healed leg. She made friends with other pets in the home – including dogs and cats. She also enjoys the company of children.

To look at her now, you would never guess the trauma this little one has gone through. Have you persevered through hardship?

Are you a believer in the healing power of unconditional love?

Perhaps you are the adopter Madeline has been waiting for!
