Happy ending for Lily after being tossed into storm drain

One little dog, whose broken body was rescued from a river bed in Carenage last year, has finally had her fairytale ending.

Little Lily, who was rescued after she was cruelly beaten and tossed into a storm drain in Carenage in November 2017, has finally found her 'furever home', according to an update by the Animal Welfare Network (AWN).

Lily had been so badly damaged that her tail had been almost completely severed, and she suffered grave injuries due to numerous broken bones.

However, AWN said Lily is now safely in a new home with loving owners and couldn't be happier.

"Rescued from the river after being thrown over the side, Lily is now a happy, healthy lady in a loving home with another four-legged friend...Here is Lily! In a great home with loving owners - thank you once again to everyone who helped to save/ treat/ donate towards this sweet girl - we could not have done it without you! " the group said. 

Citizens were overjoyed at Lily's happy ending.

Rose Ann Akong: "Awwww so happy for Lily, you have all the love you will ever need."

Ronald H. Myers: "AWN and all the caring and hard-working people who work in that amazing organization are quite simply inspirational."

Milagros De Gannes: "So happy Lily found a loving home and is now a happy doggie!"

AWN and other animal advocacy groups have been calling for legislative amendments to help end animal cruelty in Trinidad and Tobago.
