Trinity was one lucky gal who received a "second chance." Animal Control Officer Morris investigated a complaint of children abusing a small dog in Santa Clara and found a Chihuahua with a broken leg that had been left untreated. The owner decided to surrender the dog as she had only recently acquired her and admittedly could not provide the required care. Trinity's leg had been so badly injured so long ago that it had to be surgically removed. Dr. Kureshi of Cupertino Animal Hospital generously donated his time and performed the surgery. The Animal Assistance Fund was used to cover surgical expenses. Trinity quickly recovered from the surgery and was adopted into a loving home! Due to the many folks who have donated to the Animal Assistance Fund, Trinity has truly received a "second chance" at life.
