Washington, DC - This is Sazzy, She's Had a Horrendous Start in Life, And Is Now Raising Money to Help Other Animals – Read Her Story, and Donate if You Can

I want to tell you about a special friend of mine. Her name is Sazzy. Since the summer of 2015, Sazzy has been living with her foster mom, Lisa LaFontaine, CEO and President at Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League. She's had a horrendous start in life, and is now raising money to help other animals 

Please read Sazzy’s story, told by her foster mom:

My pretty little lady came into our lives about a year ago, when we took her home in the summer of 2015 to provide foster care. Sazzy had was covered with infected puncture wounds, the result of a dog attack in her former home. Even worse, her jaw was shattered, most likely from being kicked in the face. Although we tried many medical interventions, ultimately she lost a good portion of her mandible.

That didn't stop her; in fact, we decided to adopt her the day we took her home from Friendship Hospital for Animals, because she kissed every person on her way out of the lobby. Who wouldn't want to have such spirit in their lives on a daily basis!

Over the past year we've learned a lot about each other. She is my sidekick and comes to work with me at WHS/WARL on most days that I am based in an office. Sazzy graduated from eating hand-fed meatballs to doing everything a fully-mouthed dog can do. She gives sideways kisses, and she is a sloppy eater, but none of that matters because she exudes love and joy and curiosity.

We are raising money this year to give back to other animals who, like her, had a rough start - but carry sunshine in their souls. When I have a rough day Sazzy fills my heart with joy and inspires me to go out and do all I can to help other animals. Any gift you can give would be appreciated!

People say that Sazzy is lucky to have found us and while that is true, I see us as the lucky ones. I have infinitely more smiles and laughs than I had before she came into my life. She brings more love into our home. What more can you ask for when you adopt!

Sazzy is grateful for every new day, and I will be grateful for any gift you can give to honor my sweet, special girl.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Lisa (and Sazzy)
