Nobody who owns a pet wants to see their pet at a shelter. We all hope for the best for these young angels.
Nevertheless, accidents happen, and pet owners are unable to continue caring for their woofing and meowing friends. The knowledge that there are still many is heartbreaking.
Chrissy Elder now routinely stops by the Charlotte, North Carolina, animal shelter to see if any animals are in need of assistance.
A lovely pit mix with floppy ears that resembled a piglet was discovered by this thoughtful woman in July 2022 at the shelter. His owner was unable to raise him any longer due to a medical ailment, so she sent him there.
The poor dog was left behind in a kennel with a skin condition that was becoming worse by the day since the shelter couldn’t care for all the animals. Chrissy felt she had to save the puppy when she first met him. He was taken to the veterinary emergency room and given the new name Piggy after having his painful skin condition diagnosed.
After that, Piggy went to a foster home run by Forgotten, Now Family Rescue where she received medical baths twice a week to combat a dermo-dex infection. His rehabilitation was outstanding after a month. His body, head, and limbs all started to reappear with patches of for.
Also, Piggy had changed from a depressed man to a nice, upbeat man. All day long, he played and ran while displaying his unabashed affection for everyone. A woman called and requested to adopt Piggy in September. He is now in a better place with his beloved, loving family, so you know.
What a lovely tale of a cute woofing pal! Please like and share it with your friends if you concur! Please leave a comment below and visit our page to read a few more heartfelt furry stories.
