A dog found dumped in the street with broken bones and a severe infection has made an incredible recovery.
Opal, found in Fraserburgh with a broken foot, is just one of the 50,000 animals rescued and rehomed by the Scottish SPCA in the last 10 years.
The good news is that Opal, now named Heidi, has settled in with a new family after being rehabilitated by the centre’s expert team.
Aberdeen Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre Manager Graeme Innes said, “Opal was discovered with a severe skin infection and two broken bones in her foot. She was in a lot of pain.
“We were able to rehabilitate her and she was rehomed with the Riach family back in May where she was renamed Heidi.
“Seeing animals like Opal leave to start a happy new life is the kind of moment that makes this job worthwhile.”
Graeme added, “Opal waited very patiently before finding her family, but thankfully her patience paid off. We wish her all the best in the future.”
