What Would You Do for This Tiny Pup?

If yours were the hands that cradled this tiny, sick and starving puppy, I know you wouldn’t hesitate.
You’d do everything in your power to save her.
But sometimes love and kindness aren’t enough. An animal needs veterinary treatment to save its life. And the bills mount up when there are blood tests or x-rays to be done, hospitalization, medication and round the clock care.
That’s what happened with Lilly.
When she was found abandoned at a workshop in Kenilworth and brought to our SPCA, she was barely hanging on to life.
She was about five weeks old, malnourished and in a terrible condition. She couldn’t take more than two steps without collapsing.
And no wonder. Her tiny body had the worst worm burden our vet had ever seen! We suspected that she was the runt of the
litter . . . the weak one that nobody really wanted or cared about. Except us. And you.
Your support – and online donations made by clicking here – shows that you care as much as I do about saving animals and preventing cruelty.
And it’s because of generous supporters like you that we had everything we needed to save Lilly’s life.
Against all odds, Lilly made a full recovery. She’s now full of life and energy. Best of all, she’s been adopted by the vet who saved her. She has a wonderful new home with people who love her dearly.
And yet her story could so easily have had a different ending. She could have died – frightened and alone – in that workshop.
Please will click here now to make your online donation and continue to play your role in helping us save more animals? Especially those that are weak and hurt and frightened. Those that have been harmed by humans.
Your donation – make by clicking here right now – really does have the power to save a life.
