Miracles do happen. Just look at Aurora.

Aurora on the day of her rescue.

For the first time in her life, this sweet hound is spending the holidays surrounded by love. To see her now, it’s hard to believe that she was once the victim of hoarding.

Scared, sick and hungry, Aurora was one of 84 dogs found living in filthy conditions on a property in rural Tennessee. But thanks to the support of our members, ASPCA responders were able to rescue the animals, bringing them to safety.

"It was clear that the dogs were in dire need of help, and our mission was to get them triaged by a veterinary team and into a safe environment," says Kyle Held, the ASPCA’s Midwest Director of Field Investigations and Response.

With your help, our team nursed Aurora back to health, we helped her conquer her fears and we found her a loving forever family. We're so grateful for your support—without it, dogs like Aurora wouldn't be home for the holidays.
