Freddie Mercury — Shelter
Freddie Mercury broke her front legs and never received medical care for her injuries. She was left outside in the cold, in a bag. She was also born with a severe underbite. I cried when I received puppy photos of Freddie and heard what had happened. Despite being thrown out like trash, she found her way to me and is now inspiring thousands of people through her social media posts every day. She brightens my world and sends a ripple effect of positivity to so many others. We’ve received messages from kids who are being bullied in school and the first thing they do when they get home is go to Freddie’s Instagram page to find happiness and comfort. She spreads a powerful message to just be yourself, unapologetically. Freddie has an important role in this world and she’s just getting started.
