After initial x-rays were taken it was clear that Ralph was to be one of the worst cases of cruelty we had received to date.
Ralph’s leg had started to calcify, as a result of an untreated fracture. He had a split pelvis, several broken ribs and plastic foreign bodies in his stomach.
Sadly our vet had to remove Ralph’s leg, the injury was so severe there was no way to rectify the damage. Able to lead a perfectly normal life on three legs, and with his stomach cleared of a child’s toy and a syringe the main concern was Ralph’s lively personality. His broken pelvis and ribs required complete rest, so Ralph was confined to a pen and rehabilitation sessions. It was touch and go if it would heal well enough to lead a normal life.
After 4 months of love, care and attention, Ralph was finally given approval for rehoming. When Karen came through our doors to foster him. When Karen and Ralph saw each other it was love at first sight and we knew he’d found the loving home he truly deserved. Like many of the animals here, Ralph was unconditionally loving, completely able to trust again, and at least forgive humankind, if not forget the pain and suffering they can cause.
Karen says: "Words really can’t describe the joy you’ve brought to my life. Because of your generosity, Ralph was able to make a full recovery from his horrific experience. Today, Ralph and I share walks in the park and woods exploring the sights, sounds and smells."
Your support helped ensure that Ralph found his forever home and dedicated care that he so thoroughly deserves – thank you for your continued support.
