Hope was Found as a Stray with an Injured Leg by a Good Samaritan and was Taken to a Local Emergency Animal Hospital.
AHS’ Emergency Animal Medical Technicians™ transported her to our Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™, where our medical team discovered the 4-year-old Australian Cattle Dog had a large open wound on her front paw.
It appeared that something was wrapped around her paw, cutting off this poor pup’s circulation. We could only imagine the suffering Hope had endured. Our medical staff cleaned and flushed the wound and applied honey bandages to help speed up the healing process. After a few weeks of food, medical care and lots of love, our sweet Hope was well enough to transfer to the home of one of our loving and compassionate Foster Heroes.
Hope’s Foster Hero family nursed her back to a clean bill of health, all the while, falling more and more in love with her. When the time came for Hope to go up for adoption, they just couldn’t let her go. Hope’s foster family became her forever family, and she is now living a happy new life in Apache Junction.
