Remember Mama and the 7 pups who we rescued from the CCC, open access shelter in Aruba? Mama Dinera, now Nala, was on our Freedom flight last week and went to an incredible family with one of her adopted babies. We knew she had an old injury to her leg and the flight took a toll on her leg (although she never complained!) We were hopeful an orthopedic specialist in the states would be able to help her. Unfortunately, the damage is too extensive and amputation is the only solution for her to be pain-free. The surgery is expensive but we can’t allow her to continue on in pain. She was an amazing Mom to her own 4 puppies and took on three larger orphaned puppies that were already at the CCC when she arrived, nursed them as her own and are all now living their best lives in the states! The vet also said her body is so ravaged that she has most likely had multiple litters of puppies that probably died on the street. We need to do this for her so she can live her best life with her new family pain free.
