Oulson named her Kelly, which means warrior in Gaelic. No one knows where she came from, but it’s likely she was a stray or was even dumped there by her previous owner — if she had one. She’s estimated to be between 7 and 10 years old.
“She’s a little fighter to be alive through everything she’s been through,” Oulson said. “I have no idea how she survived. Judging by how skinny she is and the condition of her skin, we’re guessing that she had to have been out there for at least three months.”
Currently on antibiotics to help ward off any infection from her mange, Kelly is already starting to feel a little relief after only a few days of care. Her overgrown nails have finally been cut and Oulson hopes that, later this week, she will be well enough to get a bath to help soothe her irritated skin.
