DELTA Rescue’s Chief Veterinarian Dr. Gaylord Brown has an update on Sister the Chihuahua’s condition:
Sister, the Chihuahua, is walking again. The cold laser was part of her treatment plan and I am sure it played an important role in her recovery. In addition to cold laser she was given whirlpool therapy, walking in the wheel chair, and conventional prednisilone therapy. They were all important to getting her walking again. — Dr. B
Thanks to people like you I am able to keep my promise to Sister and the others, that I will keep them safe for the rest of their lives. Please help me continue this mission, send your best gift to our animals today.

Sister is a 5-year-old female Chihuahua/Doxie mix who was abandoned in the deep desert three-years-ago along with her two siblings, Tiger Lilly and Whisper. They all have been healthy and happy, and the three love to romp and play together all day!
But last month Sister went down. We found her dragging herself by her front legs one morning. She was paralyzed from the waist down. Xrays showed that there was a complete collapse of one of her discs.
After a month of therapy our vet determined that Sister was permanently paralyzed. But she was strong and healthy otherwise. This made her the perfect candidate for a wheel cart!
I have only one question . . . does Sister look happy to run around again?!
Sister is so fast that we have to put a leash on her when she gets into her cart, otherwise she will run off into the sunset! Now she looks at me with this happy smile on her face.
Our little “Sister” was confused when her back went out and she couldn’t get up or walk. Now she races!
This is what donors to D.E.L.T.A. Rescue are part of, rescuing the visiting angels and caring for them when they get in trouble later in life. And each of them gets in trouble eventually. That’s why we have 7-day-a-week veterinarian care at our sanctuary.
Thanks to our donors I am able to keep my promise to Sister and the others, that I will keep them safe for the rest of their lives.
Please help me continue this mission, send your best gift to our animals today.
