Penny: A Shocking Case Of Neglect

Penny: A Shocking Case Of Neglect

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!
