A white boxer mix was found near North River Road extremely skinny and starving. We named her Penelope and immediately took her to the vet to be examined. Her tests came back positive for heartworm. She is currently living with one of our foster families so that she can get well and eventually be adopted. Penelope has a long road ahead of her, but we’re confident she will get the love and care she desperately needs.
Many thanks to Penelope’s foster family for taking her in while she recovers from heartworm. Pictured here is Penelope’s foster sister Winnie. Winnie is keeping her company while she rests and gains her strength.
Also, a big thank you to Amy for housing Penelope the first few days after she was found. We couldn’t rescue abandoned and unwanted animals without the help of foster families.
