D'Alfonso said yes again a month later, when Lai Lai was picked up as a stray for the third time, with a canine sibling, and was sent to another area shelter.
Her eye was enlarged and painful, and had to be removed. Plus "she was covered in ticks and bumps which turned out to be a huge bacterial infection, had multiple masses that had to be removed and is heartworm positive," says D'Alfonso. "The shelter contacted the owners but they never came to reclaim the dogs."
Lai Lai's brother was adopted. No one showed any interest in her, and she was slated for euthanasia.
So D'Alfonso decided to foster this one, too.
