Ella, a two-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier, is a pooch with a difficult background but a happy ending. The friendly puppy was left at Animal Care & Control in Brooklyn with two broken elbows which, sadly, looked like the result of mistreatment by a human.
Ella was taken by the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals to Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialists, where she had surgery and both of her legs placed in casts, and was then taken to a loving foster family in Brooklyn, where she is thriving.
Ella has had multiple surgeries and currently can’t walk on her own, so her foster mom has taken to carting her around in a Radio Flyer wagon. In the span of a few months, Ella has gone from being scared and hurt to having her own personal chauffeur.
The Picasso Veterinary Fund — which performs medical treatment for sick and injured animals, who may otherwise be euthanized due to the lack of resources and funding available for medical care — paid for Ella’s lifesaving medical treatment.
Since 2003, hundreds of dogs and cats have received medical treatment paid for by the Picasso Veterinary Fund, and countless animals have benefited from the love and attention of a foster family, such as Ella’s.
