Sophie

When she was brought to HCAL, Bella was one sick little girl. Suffering from an untreated thyroid condition, a bladder stone, and a severe skin condition, Bella needed a lot of medical help and even more TLC. After spending several weeks at the vet - and winning the hearts of her doctors and the staff - Bella made her way down the Shore to be fostered by HCAL members Tom and Joan and their other HCAL rescues - known as "The Ark Kids." It only took a few days for Tom and Joan to admit what their pets already knew - they were going to adopt Bella! Renamed Sophie, this little sweetie made tremendous strides in her recovery. While she continued on several daily medications and medicated baths, she showed such dramatic improvement that she soon had her first visit to the groomer, followed by a photo shoot by the groomer's husband. Sophie's recovery took several more months, but each day she got stronger - and prettier! In fact, she was chosen for the cover of a local shelter's pet calendar! Sadly Tom and Joan lost Sophie after three years of being blessed with her love and doggy kisses. They would like to thank HCAL for bringing their little Princess Sophie into their home and hearts.
