Azalea is continuing to blossom in her foster home. She enjoys going to work with her foster mom, one of our trusted veterinarians. She enjoys playing with the other employee’s pets, socializing with the staff, and supervising all of the events. Azalea is great with all dogs, of all sizes, cats and children. She finds fun in everything she does.

Azalea, our most recent intake in NY, was just freed from a puppy mill along with another female. We were aware that she had suffered a wound on her neck from a dog fight, but we had no idea of the severity until she was safe in our volunteer’s car. She has suffered enough with a life of captivity, forced breeding, and deprivation of human kindness. Azalea was denied veterinary care by the miller. Her wound was festering with a foul odor and measured approximately 4 inches, covering half of her neck. Azalea had emergency surgery and her wound has been addressed, but it may take several weeks before it has healed. For all that she has endured at the hands of humans, Azalea still trusts, loves, and she has not wavered. Azalea will need a home with a physical fence (no electric fences please) and another male dog in the home to help her navigate life outside of the puppy mill. Stay tuned for details on her journey in the free world.
