Blackie arrived in care in late May with what we thought was a broken leg, which we hoped would require little more than a cast for her to recover. It turned out, this sweet girl's injuries were a lot more extensive than originally thought. Blackie had several pellets in her belly and her leg was not only broken but shattered beyond repair. She immediately underwent surgery to have the pellets removed and to have the irreparable limb amputated. We can't thank the team at Athens Vet Clinic enough for making sure this gentle soul started her journey to recovery immediately following the discovery of the extent of her injuries. We are also incredibly grateful to the Iqaluit Humane Society for covering the costs for Blackie’s surgery.
Blackie is recovering in comfort at her foster home; the same home where Village Alumni Snow White was a foster fail! The two are enjoying spending their days being treated like the princesses that they are!
