Everyone deserves a second chance, especially dogs and their inspiring recoveries. They give so much love and joy and ask for very little in return.

Thistle suffered injuries on her left leg from a human tying a shoestring around it so tightly that it severed the skin to the bone. The infection was extremely bad and even affected her bone growth. Although the emergency vet could not save her leg, Thistle is all smiles from the love and care she has received.
Kringle was found with a choke collar embedded under his neck, arm, and shoulder. The wound was so bad that skin had grown over the chain in some places. An emergency Vet took the chain out, piece by piece, and saved Kringle’s life.
