“When I went to pick her up to take her to the doctor, her skin was peeling off,” Alokparna Sengupta, deputy director of HSI India, told The Dodo. “But she was and is an angel. No complaint or stress. I guess fate brought her to the right place and she knew it.”
They named her Fairy and she welcomed the medical care and attention she was getting.
“She has been an extremely patient and happy dog,” Sengupta said. “After the second day at the boarding kennel, she immediately trusted the volunteers and patiently had a bath every single week. After her recovery, we realized what a happy and friendly dog she was.”
HSI has ongoing initiatives to help stray and helpless dogs across the globe, such as their Street Dog Welfare program and their program to help free dogs caught up in the dog meat trade.
Fairy has been one of the benefactors, spending three months at their shelter before she caught the attention of a family interested in adopting her.
She spent another three months making a full recovery before going home with her new family.
Whether it was fate, or chance, or Fairy’s smarts, she ended up in exactly the right place for help. And her transformation and life now is nothing short of remarkable.
