A Story of Survival


On Friday, September 14, 2012, hart rescued four small puppies. All of the puppies were found as strays, living with no food, no water, no shelter, and no love. Two of these puppies were so emaciated that they weighed less than 8 lbs. Both puppies had their adult teeth; this means they should have weighed around 15-20 lbs. They were rushed for medical treatment and were put on a strict feeding schedule which included IV-fluids. For the first 24 hours hart volunteers were prepared for the worst. Faith had white gums, was unresponsive, and too frail to life her head. Hope had a painful abscess in her mouth, could not move her little body, and had a skin condition. The girls shocked the entire hart community with their resilience and began eating, drinking, and moving within 2 days. Hope and Faith have been medically stabilized and are still on a strict feeding schedule. Stay tuned.
