Penguin was adopted in July of 2022 to a family who loves her as much as she deserves. She loves snuggling on the couch and being a sweetheart to those who love her.
Penguin was brought into the shelter as a stray with obvious injuries to her left rear leg. She’s the friendliest girl, so we can only imagine that she just approached someone and asked for help with her hurt leg.
During every one of Penguin’s trips to the vet, she required constant cookies and kisses. X-rays showed us that she had a transverse fracture to her rear left leg. This type of break occurs when the bone is broken at a 90-degree angle to the long axis, and usually when impact is made perpendicular to the bone with a large amount of force. We’re not positive what could have caused such a major impact, but we can guess she was potentially hit by a car. It was decided amputation would be the best course of action to relieve her of any leg pain.
Foster & Adoption
Penguin stayed with a foster family while she healed from surgery. Her loving foster home quickly turned into her new, loving family. They just loved her so much that they adopted her! She’s healing very well from her amputation, and she loves playing with her new, furry siblings.
