The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation – Valentino’s Story

When Valentino was only 8 weeks old he was found in a cage covered in snow. He was in the middle of a field, scared and emaciated. The Samaritan who found him took him to the Animal Rescue League. They diagnosed Valentino of having a severe case of “Flat Foot” as well as being very malnourished.

After receiving the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation Grant, Valentino got treatment for his flat foot. Also, he was given plenty of TLC throughout his recovery!
