Lost. Abandoned. Discarded. Regardless of how a beautiful black and white Staffordshire Terrier puppy wound up homeless, she was in desperate need of urgent medical attention when she was rescued. Luckily for her, two local rescue groups were able to join forces and provide her with the second chance at life she so desperately deserved.
Stella, as she was later named, was originally rescued by Brooklyn New Hope, a placement department inside New York City's Animal Care & Control, when she was brought in as a stray. Not only was she homeless and alone, she was suffering from a severe case of Demodex mange, a painful skin condition caused by tiny mites that live inside the hair follicles. From there, she was transported to North Shore Animal League America's Port Washington, N.Y. campus where she'd be treated for her condition and receive superb medical attention from our top-notch veterinarians and medical staff. The teamwork of Brooklyn New Hope and Animal League America to rescue this helpless pup and provide her with everything she would need to start her life as a happy, healthy Mutt-i-gree.
