Precious Penny came from a most horrible situation, where humans abused and neglected the dogs in their care. At some point, Penny’s front elbow and leg were broken, and Penny never received vet care. The pain must have been unbearable and as the breaks healed, they led to a permanent limp and severe degenerative arthritis and the pain never subsided. Somehow, Penny escaped her tormenters and limped across a field. A Good Samaritan found her and tried her best to give Penny what she needed. However, Penny’s other ailments were daunting and work schedules and financial concerns made it impossible for the Good Samaritan to care for her. Penny was surrendered to Fluvanna SPCA, and the shelter took over her care. Because Penny was heartworm positive, had a tick borne disease, was in stage 2 renal failure, and had severe food allergies, Penny needed more care than a shelter could provide.

Penny joined our Sanctuary on April 10, 2022. Through the kindness of volunteer drivers, Penny made her way from Virginia to Ohio. Her health status was guarded as she completed the first stage of her heartworm treatments. Her case was particularly worrisome because heartworm disease can distress kidneys. Penny already had faced multiple lab tests, x-rays and painful injections and sadly, had to endure a second complete round of heartworm adulticide injections as her system was still not cleared of heartworm from the first set of treatments.

Penny needs medications and supplements to help improve her kidney function and arthritis, and she's on a very strict diet to keep her food allergies at bay.  After more than a year of treatments, Penny finally tested negative for heartworm and was spayed and had a complete dental.  Her mobility is much improved and Penny can now play with her hound friends and jump on her human caretaker's bed for naps. 


Despite all that Penny has been through, she is a trusting and loving hound. Sweet and sensitive and very smart, Penny will immediately touch your heart and soul. Her good nature is evident in all she does. Although Penny looked lost and confused when she first arrived, she now understands that her humans want to help her, not hurt her. And, help her, we will,for the rest of her life.  Will you also help her?
