9 Before And After Photos Of Rescued Dogs That Prove Adopting Is The Way To Go
TheÂ Trio Animal FoundationÂ is a charitable organization that assists shelters, rescue homes and individuals alike in paying the medical bills of homeless pets that haveÂ developed conditions and diseases, due to abuse, mistreatment, and neglect.
While their conditions when first found are heartbreaking, the recoveries these dogs make and their sheer joy afterwards are heartwarming. Here are the stories of some of the rescues TAF has helped heal, along with before-and-afters to show just how far they've come.
After being found tied up in her back yard and extremely emaciated, Elsa was immediately taken and hospitalized, and his since made a full recovery!
Farmer was found with a severe skin infection that covered almost his entire body, and cause his paws to swell up to twice their size. After being treated medicinally for the bacteria, he was able to quickly get back to full health.
Filly also found extremely neglected and emaciated, was so malnourished, she had to be placed in emergency supportive care. Fortunately, after being put on a recovery regimen and given the proper nutrients, she was able to completely recover!
Heinously, Hazel Grace was set on fire by her previous owner and received severe burns to her abdomen. She was immediately hospitalized, and doctors performed a skin graft on her, to replace the scar tissue. Although not all of her fur has grown back, she's healthy and in much brighter spirits!
Due to neglect and malnourishment, Jones was unable to use his back legs, and was on the verge of being sent to a kill shelter. After being rescued though, he was put on medication, given substantial physical therapy, and is now able to walk again!
Thistle is the victim of another egregious owner, who tied shoestring around her ankle so tightly, it cut her to the bone, causing her leg to lose circulation and swell twice its normal size. Despite emergency veterinarians not being able to save her leg, Thistle is now happy, healthy, and belongs to a new, loving owner.
Kringle was found with a choke collar embedded in his neck, back, and chest. The wound that resulted was so extreme that skin began growing over the chain in some places. However, an emergency vet carefully removed the chain, piece by piece, and now, Kringle is all smiles!
Red, who had grown to be severely overweight due to neglect and improper nourishment, was also on the verge of being sent to a kill shelter, until he was rescued, put on a strict regimen, and lost 10 pounds. Now, he has a caring owner, and his life expectancy is back to normal.
Winston was found abandoned in a Chicago backyard, infested with bacteria and ticks. Police discovered him though and brought him to a nearby shelter, where he was promptly treated and made a full recovery!
