Help Pets Like Different!

Different had a rough start in life.

At three-years-old, this little girl suffered incredible trauma when she was hit by a car. Sadly, her owner refused to take her to a veterinarian and her fractured leg grew worse each day. After eight months of living in pain, Different’s owner finally took her to see a veterinarian after she developed a terrible infection.

Due to her condition and the delay in providing treatment, our Animal Law Enforcement team was called to investigate. Different was then brought to HSPPR for urgent care and her owner was charged with cruelty to animals.

After a full medical examination and X-rays, it was determined her leg was too damaged and needed to be amputated to prevent the infection from spreading. 

Different was so scared when she first arrived and she would hide in the back of her kennel. But after an extensive surgery, Different became a whole new dog! With her chronic pain relieved, she would greet staff with both paws on her kennel door — tail wagging. One volunteer noted that Different’s tail “set a new speed record,” and “she is an incredible treat detector!” 

During her 5-month stay at HSPPR, Different was also spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and given daily play and cuddle sessions. Thanks to your continued support, Different learned to trust people again. She now has a new loving family to call her own!
