Injured dog with a broken pelvis is so resilient! How do you explain her behavior??? 😱

For my birthday, I wanted to share this cute rescue video. Ricardo, the Good Samaritan who found her and fed her, took a barrel, cut it in half, and created a shelter for her while seeking help.

She looked like a turtle with her head peeping out, so I decided to name her Turtllini. πŸ₯°

When I arrived at the rescue location, I wasn't told she was injured, and I couldn't even tell. She was a happy little dog who just wanted to be loved. Before seeing the doctor, I wanted to give her a bath, and right away I noticed that she was limping in a way that indicated to me that either her leg or her pelvis was broken.

This rescue, as simple as it was, is an important reminder to the presence of Hope For Paws on the ground with a medical team that can help these animals. Thank you Dr. Antonio Pedraza for another perfect fix - I am so happy she healed so nicely.

Yesterday, we celebrated Hope For Paws' 16th anniversary, and we still have a matching campaign where your donations can be DOUBLED or TRIPLED!

Please watch this video until the end so you can answer my question there… it's an interesting one to think about. πŸΆπŸ˜ŠπŸ’πŸ˜Έ

All I want is to be able to do more, and with your help we can do more now that the new CARES is open! Today is the first major surgery day, and by the end of this week we will complete at least 20 surgeries!

If every person here would be able to help us recruit just one family member or a friend who loves animals to join our team with a recurring donation, we could do twice as much work!

Thank you so much for all the anniversary and birthday wishes, and cards!!!
