How did this happen to a beautiful 8-month-old puppy like
Sabrina? She had been living under wrecked cars in an auto-repair
shop. Her young body was covered with motor oil and her skin was raw
from mites. Animal control had been called to pick up the dog. Someone
had to have see how tortured she was from the Demodectic mange which
was ravaging her body. Her wounds were deep and raw.
Once at the shelter they knew no one would come
looking for her, so she wasn't even going to be held the normal 5
days. Sabrina's card was already signed off; she was to be euthanized
Fortunately, our volunteer Barbara, happened to walk by her run and
there in the back she saw a beautiful but pathetic dog.
We feel so lucky that we have been given the chance to make up to
Sabrina for what was done to her, or not done for her. After leaving
the shelter, we stopped to get her our usual celebratory double cheeseburger,
marking the beginning of her new life. Sabrina was so ravenous, she
was literally starving. We took Sabrina directly to Dr. Pasternak
who treats both with conventional medicine and also uses a holistic
approach. The holistic approach is intended to help boost her immune
system. Sabrina knew everyone was there to help her. Once in the bath
tub, she was starting to feel better. We think we saw a trace of a
smile. If you would like to make a donation towards Sabrina's care
