When the ASPCA arrived at the home of Remy’s former owner in June 2013, we found a one-year-old Pit Bull too weak to stand and lying in a cage with feces and urine. The dog’s owner surrendered Remy to us, and we immediately took action to offer relief to the sweet, suffering canine.
During treatment, we discovered Remy had fractures in both hind legs, and she wasn’t able to walk. “When we would assist her to stand, she would just collapse,” reports ASPCA veterinarian Dr. Amy Greenbaum. “But even through all that, she came in wagging her tail, trying to kiss everyone on the face—we could tell she was really, really sweet.”
After intensive treatment, which included surgery and hydrotherapy, Remy began to heal. She will never be free of the scars of her past trauma, but the ASPCA is there to provide comfort and care—and a second chance.
Dr. Greenbaum says, “Remy’s favorite thing in the world is to have someone with her,” and we’re thrilled to report she was adopted in November and will always have a lap to sit on.
We know Remy is so grateful to have a loving family at last, but she can’t tell you that herself. So on behalf of Remy, as well as the thousands of other animals you’ve assisted this year, thank you.
Remy will never be alone again thanks to your compassionate support.
