A small, frail puppy named Simba was rescued from an abusive home and was given to a shelter in Cape Town, South Africa. Instead of happily starting a new, healthy life…things began to go tragically wrong for him.
And he was nearly killed because of it.
Caretakers noticed that he seemed sad and wouldn’t play like the other rescued puppies. The situation seemed hopeless to the people taking care of Simba. So, he was turned into a vet to be euthanized.
Thankfully, a quick-thinking veterinarian intervened and realized that the struggling baby wasn’t defective, but very ill.
It turns out that Simba had a severe case of tick fever. It was so bad, in fact, that the staff at the clinic weren’t sure if he would be able to survive it. It’s no wonder that the poor baby didn’t have the energy to play.
