Abigail — Emerging Hero

Charity Partner: Dogs on Deployment
Location: Lehigh Acres, Florida

Abigail, a gal that did not ask for the life she was forced to live. Abigail and her bonnets have changed the world. Abigail is a HERO because of the lesson she teaches about forgiveness and dog fighting. Abigail & her Bonnets have brought awareness to the importance to help “End Dog Fighting”. A 1yr old pit mix was found as a stray in Miami FL. Brockton drove to Miami to bring her to LIFE Rescue. Upon her arrival & after further examinations we believe she suffered the life of suspected dog fighting. She was anemic, she was infested with ticks, scars covered her bloody head, neck, back legs, half her face was missing, she smelled so bad of infection, & was covered in old dried mud. The entire side of her face was gone. Her skin had been ripped off right down to the ear drum. Abigail had only spent a day at the shelter before she was brought to the rescues vet clinic. Her injuries were at least a week old, she almost lost her life. Abigail had weeks of hospitalization & daily bandage changes. How would she live a normal life? Would she need rehab? She had several MAJOR surgeries of extensive skin grafts. Day two of her journey is when her “MISSION” began.TJ her vet & vet tech Destiny were changing her bandages, the way they held the gauze looked like a bow. Since then we called her bandages “her bonnets”. People started sending bonnets from all over the WORLD. Abigail is on Facebook at “Bonnets For Abigail” with over 12k followers who love her. Abigail didn’t need therapy, Abigail is the therapy. She loves people & dogs. She has a mission to continue too teach forgiveness and end dog fighting.
