Janie was brought to a shelter in LA as a stray on April 14th, having had been run over by a car and was seriously injured.
How do they know? She literally had a tire track across her back! She was scared and in pain, reluctant to let anyone help.
SO many people wanted to! The only problem is that she had a microchip, meaning the owners had 10 days to claim her before she could legally be rescued OR adopted, so the staff called the owners and even went to the registered address! NOBODY WANTED THIS CUTE PUPPY!
The loving and amazing staff had money pledged in case Janie needed surgery, but there was no foster home for her. They bent over backwards to find her one!
Against the odds, Janie was given a chance at a happy life, thanks to the dedication of the shelter's employees, as well as several concerned animal welfare workers. This was just some random dog, and the kindness of strangers saved her life — and gave her a new, comfortable one to boot!
It's stories like the one (above & below) that make us SO happy!
