Heroes saved puppy caught in trap

I want to tell you a story about heroes. A 3-month-old puppy got caught in a trap for 12 days in subzero to 14-below weather. She’s two toes lighter but into everything. I would like to thank Steve Vick and Tracy Mikowski at Haines Animal Rescue Kennel for their loving hearts and good deeds for all of us, two-legged or four.

I also want to thank Southeast Veterinary Clinic for doing a great job and saving my baby. Thanks to Brian Clay at Bigfoot for coming to the aid of my family again and again. Thanks to Woody Pahl for transport and to everyone who had a care about my little bits.
