Annie the 1-year-old Lab/Pit Bull mix had a rough start to life. She faced abuse and the loss of her puppies at a very young age, but Pawsitive Restorations Animal Rescue didn’t let that stop them from helping her. Despite all odds, Annie is alive and happier than ever today. It’s all because the group of kind individuals refused to give up on her.
Annie’s road to recovery is not over yet, but things are finally looking much better for her. Even though people were not kind to her as a puppy, she is one of the most loving dogs you’ll ever see. So, she deserves this second chance at life.
Poor Annie was found lying in the driveway of her human’s house in Oklahoma, barely moving. WOOF Pet Rescue arrived at the scene to save her. When the woman who lived there approached the rescue, she showed no sympathy for what she had done to the little dog. In fact, she even thought that Annie wasn’t worth it.
Of course, Annie is definitely worth it though. The rescue took her in without hesitation. They rushed her to emergency care, where they discovered she was pregnant with 10 puppies. However, she was too weak to properly give birth. She had wounds all over her body that had never properly healed. The puppies did not survive, but there was still hope for Annie.
Maranda Dawne Weber, the person responsible for Annie’s condition, was arrested not long after. She was charged with animal cruelty. The details of her arrest are unclear at this time, but she deserves serious punishments for what she did to Annie.
Now, after many vet visits and surgeries later, Annie is doing much better. Pawsitive Restorations Animal Rescue in Colorado took Annie into their care. Krissy Mosbarger, the president of the rescue, has since adopted the sweet pup. Annie is happier than ever with her new mom by her side.
“She is a survivor. She is a beautiful soul,” said Mosbarger. “She has been overlooked and let down, but she is not let down anymore.”
Justice for Annie
If you saw Annie today, you might not even recognize that she’s the same dog. She’s so full of life, with her tail always wagging. She still has a long way to go before she fully recovers, but she is headed in the right direction.
Healing Annie is no easy task though. So far, her medical treatments have cost over $16,000 and it will likely only increase from there. But for Mosbarger, no amount of money is too much if it means Annie can get a second chance at life. After all, the sweet dog has such a strong will to live.
“I have had people reach out to me and say, ‘for $16,000, how many other dogs could you have helped?’ And they are absolutely right. [But] this dog reached into my soul,” said Mosbarger.
Annie needs all the love and support she can get during her recovery. If you’d like to donate, you can visit Pawsitive Restorations Animal Rescue’s website. Also, check out the “Justice For Mama Annie” Facebook group for more updates on her progress.
