Twain Harte, CA — A dog who was rescued last month after being hit by a car is recovering well with the help of a wheelchair.
The dog, Adeline, was hit on Tuolumne Road near Morris Grade. Concerned citizens wrapped her in a blanket to prevent her from going into shock. Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Deputy Erik Hoffman was flagged down by some others in the area and made aware of the situation.
Adeline was transported to the Twain Harte Veterinary Hospital, where she has been cared for, and living ever since. Officials found out that Adeline’s owner is homeless and was unable to continue her care.
Adeline lost her ability to move her legs, so she now uses a wheelchair to move around. The Tuolumne County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, along with Deputy Hoffman and his wife, provided financial donations to help cover the costs of Adeline’s treatment.
The Sheriff’s Office reports that Adeline is now “happy and doing well” and will be going to live with a community member that has experience caring for disabled animals.
