HERSHEY  – Pictured with new brother Trooper

Adopted 06/2021

Congratulations to Hershey (on the left) on his adoption!

Hershey was one of the most neglected dogs we have ever rescued. Barbi was at Okeechobee Animal Control choosing dogs to go on our transport to Chicago and there was Hershey.

He was barely able to walk and completely starved, with very little hair. The manager said he had been going down hill every day and basically could not get up.

Nala’s New Life Rescue immediately took him to the vet and we found out, among other things, both of his back legs were injured. He may have been hit by a car.

With the help of our generous followers, Nala’s was able to raise money for his surgery.  After his surgery we put a plea out for someone to foster while he recovered . A year later and after much love and patience, his fosters have decided to adopt Hershey.

We wish Hershey and his new family a lifetime of happiness!

Many thanks to Dr. Padrone and Dr. Latimer for their expert surgery and to Dr. Mary Bressman for finding the solution to keep Hershey comfortable.
