Sometimes having a reason to live can be the best medicine.
When Ellie was discovered by No Kill Kern (NKK), a dog rescue in Bakersfield, California, she was on the verge of death. Jackie Cameron, executive director of NKK, was visiting a local shelter last month to pick up a different dog when the staff begged her to come see a terrier mix they had in the back.
The dog, Ellie, was estimated to be between 12 and 14 years old and had been living outside at an abusive home before a neighbor called animal control to coordinate her rescue.
