Hope was pulled from a high kill county shelter where she was close to being euthanized. She was going to be euthanized because of some problems she was having with her two hind legs.
After Hope was put into a foster home, a trip to the veterinarian showed that Hope was in need of surgery for her two luxating patellas. An animal that has a luxating patella means that their knee caps can pop in and out of place, making it very painful to walk.
It was deemed that Hope had unfortunately been born with this condition. Hope's foster mom started by emailing different veterinarians asking for help. Dr. Schoyer from Animal Care Clinic emailed her in response and Hope's journey started.
Right before Hope's first surgery, she came down with an upper respiratory infection. Poor little Hope knew that everyone in her life had named her Hope for a reason. They had hope that she would come out on top of all the things that she was battling. After multiple surgeries to get Hope's legs set just right, volunteers working hard to raise money for her needs, and even a trip to the Blessing of the Animals, Hope is a new girl!
Since Hope's foster mom saw her through all of these battles, she felt that Hope needed to have her forever home with her. Hope has fit right in with the other animals, all whom are rescues as well. Hope is now a daily employee of Lail Farm, she oversees the office and keeps the horses in check, too!
