This little Terrier, named Sophie, was hit by a car in Downey, California. She had been left to die, but someone found her and brought her to an animal shelter. She had several pelvis fractures and was unable to walk. Euthanasia could have very well been in Sophie’s near future. Luckily, a woman named Laura was reading a story about Sophie online and knew immediately that she had to save her. The only problem was that she was 2 000 miles away, in Nashville, Tennessee.
Laura did everything she could to try and get a local animal rescue in California to help, but no one responded. That is, until one rescue heard her pleas and called back. Janet, from the Abandoned Terrier Rescue Association, picked Sophie up and took her to the Santa Margarita Animal Care Center in Rancho, Santa Margarita, California. She had a surgery to repair her broken pelvis, and within weeks she was healed up and running! Janet fostered Sophie and wound up giving her a furever home!
Sometimes the world seems like a terrible place, but all it takes is one kind gesture like this to restore our faith in humanity! Laura is an amazing woman for helping out Sophie, despite living so far away. And of course, Janet is awesome for fostering and adopting Sophie!
