Description

It was Christmas Eve. Most animal shelters weren't even open—but PETA was. Someone took the call from Soupster's owners when it came in: They were expecting a baby, and in their view, that meant that their little Maltese had to go. Immediately. On Christmas Eve. They had already tried calling the "no-kill" shelter from which they had adopted her two years earlier, but they were told that the waiting list was several weeks long. But they couldn't wait several weeks, and, as it turned out, neither could Soupster. When the tiny dog was dropped off at PETA's office, she had more medical problems than could be counted on the fingers of both hands. Besides being filthy and flea-ridden, her fur was horribly matted, causing a skin infection that left her skin raw and covered with sores. Her teeth were so rotten that all but three of them had to be pulled, and an untreated infection required the roof of her mouth to be stitched back together. In addition to all this, she had mammary tumors, an ear infection so severe that it caused permanent deafness, and severe kidney and urinary tract infections. Her blood test came back with a grave diagnosis: kidney failure. The veterinarian estimated that even with treatment, Soupster had just three to six months to live. But fast-forward six months, and just look at her now!
