Star, rescued from the puppy mill in Howard County, Md, needs our help. What horrors has this girl seen?! We will never know. But we do know that after being adopted out by the shelter she was returned after only a day, with a broken leg.

NEBTR rushed this 2 year old, frightened girl to the emergency vet where she underwent surgery to repair her broken front leg. The surgery was more complicated than anticipated. Star's leg is being held together with 9 screws and a plate. Her foster mom is bringing her home from the hospital this evening and will share photos with us.

Please send your love, good thoughts and prayers to Star to help her recover.

Star's medical bills are rising. Please donate to her medical care below....

Baby Girl's original owner passed away and his sister found her a great and loving new home, but through no fault of her own, she finds herself looking for her forever home once again. Please show her some love and give her some shares.

Baby Girl is no elderly lady! She has the energy of a three year old pup!
