New York, NY – April 25, 2016: Stella, an 8-year-old Beagle, was abandoned by her owner at the Staten Island, NY city shelter, an open-intake kill shelter. She had lived her entire life outside, confined to a doghouse in her small backyard, bred multiple times. She was suffering from large, painful mammary tumors and a likely hernia, among other issues stemming from a lifetime of neglect.
When we found out she had been abandoned along with her adult daughter, 5-year-old Luna, we couldn’t leave her behind and so we pulled her as well. Both dogs are incredibly sweet and affectionate. Stella is being treated for her tumors and hernia and will undergo surgery shortly.
