Penelope came into a local shelter by animal control on 09/04/14 from Camden city after being hit by a car. Sadly no one claimed her...
Although she arrived with hind leg paralysis, she has shown improvement with steroids. X-Rays showed that there was nothing out of place, nothing broken and so there is hope Penelope may regain the use of her legs. She retracts from deep pain, which indicates Penelope does have some feeling in her legs and initially she was unable to move her tail, but two days ago she did! Joa's Arc wants to give Penelope a chance at regaining some or all use of her hind legs.
Joa's Arc is hopeful for Penelope and we need your help for the next step - hydrotherapy, PT and acupuncture. She has a long road ahead, but this happy girl is so worth it! Please consider donating to her care.
