It's hard to read Stella's story without getting angry... she's been let down by so many people, used and abused as a breeding machine to make money, then discarded when she needed too much care.
Stella was found dumped on the street and taken to the vet - which is where our rescuer found her when taking one of our other rescues in for treatment. We didn't plan for her to come to us, but there was no way we could say no when her life was hanging in the balance. Had she not come to us, she would have been euthanised.
Stella has hip dysplasia, chronic glaucoma, rotten teeth and a tumour that needed to be removed. Even though her bulging eyes would have been causing so much discomfort, her previous 'owners' decided dumping her to fend for herself was a better option.
Now in our care, this sweet girl is being treated for all her health issues and is slowing learning what being loved is all about. She's still very timid but her tail wags are becoming more frequent and we're determined to show her all the joy of being a loved companion animal.
STELLA HAS NOW BEEN ADOPTED AND IS HAPPILY LIVING WITH HER NEW HUMANS AND STEP FUR-SIBLING... Happy ever after stories like this are only possible with your help, so please continue to DONATE or SPONSOR one of our other rescues - it's fully tax deductible too.
