Red Is A Survivor
Amid all the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, positive outcomes for dogs and other animals were few and far between. Red's story is a happy exception. This handsome Staffordshire terrier was stuck by a utility truck after the storm, resulting in a fractured vertebrae and leaving him partially paralyzed. In a stroke of good luck, Red was discovered by the Best Friends hurricane rescue team. They performed surgery to fuse his damaged spine and found a new loving family for him. Today, Red gets around in a special cart and enjoys an unlimited supply of stuffed animals. Hooray for Red!
