In the disheartening reality that often accompanies animal rescue, it’s not every day that a glimmer of hope shines through. As many of you are aware, we are fighting for Chico, a severely malnourished and ill dog. Chico’s situation is so precarious that he’s been walking the thin line between life and death. But today, something truly miraculous has happened amidst the suffering.
Chico is currently in a critical condition at the hospital, where we’ve been fighting tooth and nail to save him. Just today, he received another blood transfusion. Our veterinary team, assisted by the brilliant Jorge Llinas, a leading expert in the treatment of Leishmaniasis , has been tirelessly working to mitigate the internal trauma that threatens Chico’s fragile life.
While this struggle ensues, a ray of light has broken through the heavy clouds. Patricia, one of our most cherished adopters, traveled all the way from the northern part of the country to personally meet Chico. Patricia wanted to let him know that if he pulls through this, a loving family is waiting for him.
Patricia is no stranger to challenging rescues; she adopted Scotty five years ago. Scotty was one of our most complex cases—an incontinent dog who relies on a wheelchair for mobility. When Patricia saw Chico’s video, she was instantly captivated by his eyes, his ears, and above all, his courage in the face of overwhelming adversity.
Though their meeting was brief, we’re convinced that it has infused Chico with a newfound sense of hope. The room was filled with a palpable sense of love and belonging—emotions that Chico desperately needs at this moment.
Chico’s battle is far from over. The transfusions, treatments, and around-the-clock care are expensive, but necessary. We need your support more than ever. Your contribution will not only provide Chico with a fighting chance but also inspire other lost souls with the hope of finding a forever home.
