Though her eyes are filled with infection, so badly crusted over with pus that she cannot open them…she wags her tail.
Despite her cracked and bleeding flesh, filled in some places with maggots…she wags her tail.
Noel, as she is now called, has endured a painful life of neglect, yet still, she wags her tail.
She has, until today, been deprived of kindness and compassion, yet still she wags her tail.
Nobody knows who allowed Noel to fall into this pitiful state of health.
Right now, what is important is getting Noel the care that she needs to survive and recover.
It will take months and months of special care to restore this puppy’s health but we will not fail her. The indifference to these animals will not win in Tunica County.
We are here and we will heal this innocent baby. Even when I was taking these pictures, her little tail was wagging against the kennel.
How these dogs can be so forgiving, I will never understand. That is why we as humans can learn so much from these animals. They teach us to be kinder human beings.
Noel is being treated by a veterinarian for her deluge of maladies.
Please keep this neglected puppy in your thoughts as she heals from her many wounds.
