As many of you know, Last Chance Ranch saves most of its dogs from high-kill shelters. Our goal is to Rescue, Rehabilitate and Re-home. However, in some cases, we also bring in the occasional sick animal that has no hope left due to age or severe illness and offer them a few hours or days of affection, nurturing, comfort and the feeling that they ARE loved and cared for.
LCR Founder Lori McCutcheon saw an alert from Animal Care and Control about a sweet little Maltese with a very bleak and extremely short future.
This little angel was tossed out of a moving car, landing on the side of the road. As the car sped off, a passerby ran over to retrieve her before she could roll into oncoming traffic. This Good Samaritan took her to ACCT for care. After a preliminary exam it was determined that this sweet dog was paralyzed in her hind legs - probably the reason for her heartless and cruel disposal.
The thought of her being euthanized without anyone being with her was more than Lori could imagine. She immediately decided to bring the Maltese back to LCR, give her the love she desperately needed and help her cross the Rainbow Bridge surrounded by people who cared.
Then something interesting happened...everyone fell in love with her. Her sweet demeanor, happy disposition (despite her predicament) and fighting spirit gave LCR volunteers and staff the determination to help this "Angel" get back on her feet and, hopefully, into a loving forever home!
Lori noticed there appeared to be some movement in Angel's back legs and, with nothing to lose and everything to gain, we began to work with her.
Although Angel is literally taking 'baby steps' toward her recovery, she still has a long and very expensive path of rehabilitation ahead of her.
