Puppy Hit Twice Lives to Tell (Fairy) Tale

Written by Michelle Kretzer | July 11, 2012

Like her namesake, 4-month-old pup Snow White was in dire need of rescue when Animal Rahat, the animal-relief organization that PETA helps fund in India, got the call. The frightened puppy had tried to negotiate a busy road, only to be struck by a speeding bicycle. Running blindly, she was hit again by another bicycle, leaving her bruised and bloodied, with a gaping wound on her leg.

The Animal Rahat team rushed to the scene, scooped up the frail puppy, and  took her back to the sanctuary, where the veterinarian and other staff members cleaned her wounds, treated her for fleas, and fed her what was probably her first square meal in her entire short life. Her stomach full, Snow White curled up and conked out, fast asleep.

This energetic puppy is now a cheerful addition to the sanctuary and has made friends with all the former working animals who are retired there

But Snow White is still waiting for her Prince Charming—a sponsor to help Animal Rahat with her care. Can you help give her a fairytale ending? Make a generous commitment to Snow White and other animals rescued by Animal Rahat to help working animals of India.
