We have been inundated with requests for an update on the health of Penny, the 3 year old dog that the Foundation rescued recently from a life of horrific abuse and neglect, whose story we first reported last week. Veterinarian Dr. Stan Kunin, who has been caring for Penny, reports that she has responded well so far to her treatment but still has a long road ahead. Find out the latest on her progress!

Penny was rescued by the Heigl Foundation after her owner handed her into a Los Angeles shelter, blighted by a terrible catalog of injuries, infestations and infections that rendered her barely able to stand. Penny’s jaw appeared to be broken or dislocated and she had chewed away the inside of her mouth in an effort just to eat food and stay alive. It was clear she had been the victim of terrible neglect and needed immediate treatment!
