ASPCA announces 2012 Dog of the Year
The recipient of this year’s ASPCA Humane Award in the Dog category is Fiona, an 11-year-old Poodle mix who was abandoned in a Los Angeles trash heap. Fiona was suffering from severe neglect and blind in both eyes, but found love and care with the group Hope For Paws, who nursed her back to health. A YouTube video campaign brought Fiona’s story to over 5.5 million viewers, which helped raise funds for her vet bills and subsequent surgery to restore her vision. Fiona is now in a loving forever home. Learn about the other Humane Award winners at ASPCA.org. See the amazing video of Fiona being rescued and transformed from a heart-breaking mess to a healthy bundle of joy whose antics will make you LOL at blog.ASPCA.org/content/2012-humane-awards-announced.
