Brought To You By The Letter H

This sweet hound girl was brought to Angels of Assisi by Botetourt Animal Control. She spent her first night at Emergency Vet Services, and when we picked her up she had a hard time walking due to mammary tumors. 

Besides the soulful eyes, notice anything else about her? Check out the right ear, it has been freeze branded with the letter H. Freeze branding is done with a combination of dry ice and anhydrous alcohol, mixed to a desired temperature of -71 degrees Fahrenheit. The brand is dipped into the mixture, then pressed to the ear for about 35-40 seconds.

We are not sure what the original H meant. But we do that know that as soon as she she recovers from her surgery, it will stand hope, health, home, and happiness.
Welcome to your new life.

It’s probably my job to tell you life isn’t fair, but I figure you already know that.
So instead, I’ll tell you that hope is precious, and you’re right not to give up.”
