Malnourished Utica Dog Makes Amazing Comeback; All Thanks to You
This comeback story will warm your heart. And it's all thanks to your help!
Anita's Stevens Swan Humane Society does incredible work in Central New York, saving dogs from near death and bringing them to new families in our neighborhood. Their goal is to save every animals life that walks through their door, even when there might be no hope left.
Back in September, Stevens Swan welcomed in an extremely emaciated dog to their shelter. Right away, they provided care to her and named her Nova.
She was found alongside Route 12 in Utica, nearby to the shelter. A passerby had noticed Nova all by herself, starving and barely hanging on. As soon as the driver opened their door, Nova hopped in and they went right to the shelter.
At first glance, the shelter didn't think she was going to make it much longer. Weighing only 45 pounds, it would take a while for her to be back to normal. But slowly overtime, Nova began regaining her strength and filling out once again.
Back To Normal!
Flash forward to now, Nova has gained 25lbs back (70.6lbs) and is looking amazing. She can still gain more weight, but just look at her happy face!
Having gained some weight back, she is back to her happy and energetic 5-year-old self. Nova has gotten along with everyone at the shelter, including other big dogs, and is ready to find her new home.

Come meet Nova and all the other dogs at Steven Swan Humane Society. Nova is looking for a home ready to enjoy a strong and energetic dog. She is getting spayed soon and having part of her tail removed, due to an exposed bone.
A dog meet is always required if you have other dogs, in order to ensure it's a good fit. Nova will also need a home that doesn't have small dogs or cats.
