Dear Friend - This is a picture of a puppy named Mighty. I wish I could say his story wasn’t true...sadly, it is! At eight weeks this sweet little puppy was punched in the head. Mighty’s owner, furious when the puppy made a mess on the floor, knocked him unconscious. When the puppy regained consciousness, he began to have seizures which landed him at a vet hospital. Thankfully, the vet quickly recognized an abuse case and called the Nebraska Humane Society’s (NHS) cruelty investigator. Once stabilized at the vet clinic, Mighty was confiscated and brought to NHS to heal. Mighty’s brain swelling is slowly subsided; the NHS veterinarians expected him to make a complete recovery. While at NHS Mighty grew by leaps and bounds. He was a “student” in the training program at the Omaha Correctional Center (OCC). Where he was paired with an inmate who worked with him on socialization, building manners and housebreaking. This is a truly wonderful program for homeless, needy dogs, as well as being an extremely valuable program for the inmates. Dogs who need extra time to rehabilitate physically and/or behaviorally are saved by these guiding hands! We are delighted to tell you that the owner has been found guilty of animal cruelty and at long last, this sweet puppy who was a victim of abuse at such a young age has been awarded to the Nebraska Humane Society and is free to go to his forever home.A wonderful woman named Arlene has fallen in love with Mighty and will give him the happy ending he deserves! Arlene has loved and owned spaniels in the past. She lives on a lake with a big yard and woods to play in. She has two other animals for Mighty to play with. Mighty will never be mistreated again!I hope this tragically sad story which has turned into a happy ending, will put a smile on your face. And I hope you know that the support of people who care, people like you, have made this possible. There are many more dogs and cats waiting for happy endings. We simply could not do this without our friends.We are a shelter of second chances! Thank you for your trust and confidence
