We have been inundated with requests for an update on the health of Penny, the three year old dog that the Katherine’s 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. She has been doing very well with her food, vital to give her the strength to fight the infections in her body and help to address the muscle atrophy in her legs.
Penny is certainly a fighter and we are keeping our fingers crossed that the antibiotics will help with her infections and that she will make a full recovery. We shot a video of the adorable pup over the weekend and the wounds from where her jaw appears to have been wired are still visible.

Katherine’s animal welfare organization the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation was contacted this week by a shelter asking for help and specialist care for a dog barely clinging to life. Abandoned by her owner and the victim of terrible cruelty and neglect, this is Penny’s story. A story that needs to be highlighted so that collectively we can end this horrific abuse and suffering.
Penny was brought into a Los Angeles care center by her owner in a Rubbermaid plastic tub. She didn’t try to stand up or jump out of the container and initially appeared to be an older dog who had a hard life in someone’s back yard. However, it soon became clear that she was actually a young animal – less than 3 years old, blighted by a terrible catalog of injuries, infestations and infections, that rendered her barely able to stand.
