BALTIMORE, MARYLAND– The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, Inc. is saying they take in dozens of homeless, unwanted, and displaced animals every day.
Most of those animals are able to be adopted out into new homes. Dasha, a six-month-old kitten, was a bit different.
“When Dasha first arrived, she was coated in urine,” states Nejla Solano, Foster Coordinator for BARCS.
Dasha suffered a very serious injury which left her partially paralyzed. According to BARCS, the injury was caused when she was slammed in a door.
“She sort of looks like a little mermaid. She sort of pulls herself along with her front legs,” stated Solano.
BARCS purchased a refurbished wheelchair for Dasha for just $125. Once she adjusts to using it, Dasha will then be available for adoption.

“Just because someone comes in with an injury or needs some extra-special care, doesn’t mean they’re not valued or worthy of a great life,” stated Jennifer Brause, executive director of BARCS.
