How would a tiny, emaciated pup covered in fleas and weighing only five pounds be able to fend for herself out on the streets in the southern area of Los Angeles? Her medical notes indicate her eye area was so swollen, veterinarians were unable to evaluate her enucleated eye global area as a result of dried discharge.

Meet Savanah. She is a female mixed breed gal with the most adorable ears that stick straight up. She arrived at the shelter on September 16 and is estimated to be only six-years-old, but the neglect she has lived through has obviously taken its toll on her health and well-being.
