Just look at this happy, precious pup! Two months on, Meehoon is doing much better thanks to the love and generosity of our wonderful supporters.

In Thailand, there are countless homeless dogs who are suffering and have no one to care what happens to them. Will you give now so they, like Meehoon, will have a place to go when they need urgent medical care? https://bit.ly/SaveMeehoon

When little Meehoon came to us with two bloody holes in her neck, she was in a world of pain and fear. She was shaking…yet she almost seemed to be smiling at the vets caring for her. It’s as though she knew she was in good hands and would be OK.

Seven-year-old Meehoon had been semi-homeless. She was what’s known as a temple dog. At many temples, or wats, across Thailand, kind monks feed homeless dogs and care for them the best they can. But most can’t do very much when one gets sick or injured. Meehoon most likely got bitten by another temple dog, or perhaps a homeless one.

Thanks to the ongoing care our animal-adoring supporters have made possible, Meehoon, who was in tremendous pain and wasn’t even able to stand when brought in, can now walk with a slightly abnormal gait (“like a bunny,” according to her physical therapist).

This is due to a neurological issue, not a physical one. Her extensive therapy continues, and so does her improvement: She’s now able to bear weight on all four limbs. A course of steroids helped her a lot in addition to laser, water and physiotherapy.

She’s eating normally, and the extra soft bed she’s been sleeping on has definitely been beneficial. She’s been taking short walks outside, which she enjoys, and is able to run. The little girl also had reconstructive surgery on her neck wounds, which have healed nicely.

And her spirit is healing, too! Just look at the photos of her improvement. What a beautiful smile she has! And Meehoon is gaining confidence daily, according to her behaviorist. She’s still frightened of people, but is improving.

Had Meehoon not been brought to us, her wounds would probably have gotten infected, with maggots coming to reside in them, and she likely wouldn’t be able to walk. But thanks to caring animal lovers like you, we could provide this sweet girl with the care she urgently needed.

Will you give what you can now to ensure more dogs like Meehoon can be saved from terrible suffering (cats, too)? With thousands still out there, we want to always be ready to help the ones we find or who are brought to us. Thank you. https://bit.ly/SaveMeehoon
