Konna's story

continued

About a week later, a truck drove up. A lady got out of the truck so I laid down as still as I could hoping I wouldn’t have to run and hide. The lady was making soft sounds as she slowly walked over to me. She gently touched my head and asked me what happened to my leg. Could this be happening? Did someone really care about my troubles? I was ecstatic! My tail started wagging furiously to let her know how happy she made me feel.

The nice lady asked me to come with her and promised to take me to a place where I could get some good food, clean water and help for my injuries. She put me in a cage that lifted me into the truck. It was not scary, but I was wondering what was going to happen next.

We went to a place she called the Pasadena Animal Shelter. Another lady came out to see me when we got there. By this time I knew I was with friends so my tail never stopped wagging. The ladies kept looking at my leg and then told me I had to get something called x-rays.

Off we went in the truck again and I met some more nice people who laid me on the table and took pictures of my leg. A man in a white coat came in the room to look at the pictures. He said my leg was broken so badly that I needed a special doctor and an operation to put my leg back together.

I guess the news was really bad, because when I went back to the shelter the ladies were very upset. They kept hugging me and telling me they were sorry. I heard someone say that I might have to be put to sleep because there was no money to fix my leg.

Then, the most amazing thing happened. Someone told a wonderful group of people called Pets and People Alliance about me. This group of people came to my rescue and got me the help I needed. I’m told they had to pay $2,500 for my special surgery. Today my leg is stronger than ever. I can run and play like I used to, but only where I am safe. My story has a happy ending thanks to Pets and People Alliance. Off we went in the truck again and I met some more nice people who laid me on the table and took pictures of my leg.

  1. As a volunteer at the Pasadena Shelter, and a member of PPA, I see so many animals coming in that are in need of help. Donate what you can, and don't forget to donate also to more spay-neuter work as a preventative for the problems.
