Jeelu was hiding as many animals do when they are suffering acute pain.

Normally cheerful and always charming, this young teenage puppy must have had her skin snagged by a passing vehicle and the wound was so wide that stitching it closed was not an option. She needed several weeks of daily wound care, flushing, re-bandaging and rest in order to stabilize.

The final stage of healing could take place outside the hospital. With a kind and caring family in her home neighborhood, we knew it would be safer to return her where human and animal friends would welcome her, and avert the danger of exposure to the viruses other hospital patients can carry. Checking on her every week, we watched Jeelu flourish, and you can too.
