“He has had to have been like this for a long time and it breaks our hearts knowing how many people must have passed him by without trying to help. Luckily he met a kind family who started to feed him and they were able to get in contact with us,” said the rescue.
When Santana arrived at the rescue, he was severely underweight, had dental and breathing issues, and infections, and was in pretty bad shape overall. He went to the vet immediately for a health checkup and received a variety of medications to help him feel more comfortable. He also decided to live in an incubator as it made him feel safe and happy.
“Santana is making small improvements every single day,” said the rescue in an update.
Although he has a long recovery ahead, Santana is taking it one day at a time!
“He is drinking a lot of water on his own which is newer behavior. He is loving his snuggles and will nap on me for as long as I’m available to lay with him. He is darn near perfect,” said the rescue.
Santana has faced many challenges in his life, but he is not letting that stop him. He is living each day to the fullest and is continuing to thrive!
“Santana might be one of the most precious souls ever created. He only wants to spend time with us and cannot soak up enough of our love,” the rescue said.
