Dove was surrendered to Zeb’s Wish (along with her pony and Mini mule companions) in March of 2013 after several visits by animal welfare authorities. Dove, the worst off, both mentally and physically, came to Zebs for sanctuary while her companions went to another rescue for adoption.
Through intensive work with her feet, she is able to move comfortably for the first time in years. With intensive therapy to her broken heart, she is learning that it is safe to love her humans. She is still a medically fragile lady but learns every day what it is like to take a brick of fear out of her wall of defenses and live life anew.
Our beautiful Dove’s little heart supported her as long as it could and simply could no longer keep up. We helped Dove pass in December 2017.
