Resilience is defined as the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. It’s not an easy thing to do, but we at Animal Protection Society of Durham know that it is possible. We are continually amazed at the resilience we observe of so many animals that enter our shelter. Animals who have been through experiences that can only be described as cruel, thoughtless, and uncaring. Yet they survive, heal, recover, and thrive. It’s pretty amazing to witness.
Today, I want to share with you the story of two such amazing animals. Despite the adverse circumstances they have clearly experienced, they have recovered, found new places of safe respite, and are leading comfortable lives with people who care for them.
