Rescued Pit Bull Penelope Finds Forever Home On New Year’s Day

RICHMOND, Virginia – The pit bull terrier mix saved from the Church Hill streets in early December went home with her new family on New Year’s Day.

Penelope underwent several intense surgeries that were covered by RACC’s foundation.

A neighbor on N. 33rd Street in Church Hill was leaving for work when they spotted the dog shivering in some bushes on the street. After seeing the dog’s condition, the woman called animal control officers.

Veterinarians were able to stop hypothermia from setting in and cleaned up multiple bite wounds. There was initial concern that Penelope might lose her eyes, but veterinarians were able to save them. She had a fracture and holes through to her sinus cavity.

RACC said they suspected that the pit bull, estimated to be three or four years old, had been abused in dog-fighting. The case is still under investigation.
