An abandoned stray hound dog named Hop-A-Long Cassidy was rescued by Angels of Assisi in Roanoke, Virginia. She had the letter 'H' freeze-branded to her ear. After she was pulled from the shelter, Hop-A-Long was nursed back to health by the rescue. The dog's sweet and humble disposition won them over and they had high hopes of finding her a loving home.
Sadly, her health problems revealed that the loving dog has terminal cancer. But Hop-A-Long's story moved Paula Webster and her family. They immediately visited the rescue and offered to give Hop-A-Long a comfortable home for her final days. The rescue writes "They have two very comfy beds for her already and are prepared to give her a whole lifetime's full of love in the months that she has left. Thank you, thank you, thank you, more than we could ever express."
"She's very gentle," Paula said. "She's very loving. It's gonna be hard but I had a choice to either take her or let her die in a cage and I'm not going to do that."
Angels is using its Biscuit Fund to tend to Hop-A-Long's medical care and treatment. More information on Angels of Assisi and how to help out with donations or adoptions can be found at www.angelsofassisi.org.
