ELK GROVE – A number of people across Northern California came together to help save the life of a 3-month-old puppy.
Jamie Levingston, a volunteer at Kritter Kamp Rescue in Elk Grove, said Hope, aGerman Shepherd or Shepherd mix, was found in the front yard of a Stockton home on Tuesday. When she was found, Hope had severe head wounds with maggots in them.
"They took her to their house and flushed out some of the maggots and nasty stuff she had," Levingston said.
The residents then posted Hope's picture on a lost and found pet Facebook page. Levingston responded and a day later, volunteers were sent down to pick up the puppy.
Levingston contacted Kittel Family Veterinary Practice and they agreed to treat her.
