When animal control officers found one-year-old Peanut lying on a sidewalk in Philadelphia, they immediately knew something was very wrong.
The officers found out from the locals that Peanut was injected with all kinds of drugs by the neighborhood kids. As Peanut might have been heavily drugged, they could not waste another minute and marked her as an extremely urgent case.
They rushed her to the Faithful Friends Animal Society, where it was confirmed that she had been heavily sedated and she was not being responsive to any external stimuli. The staff members immediately started her on fluids and she was soon transferred to emergency care. She then underwent a drug test, the results of which showed positive for cocaine and THC.
She was kept under critical care the entire night and the staff was worried she wouldn’t make it through. But Peanut was a fighter! She fought the tremors and the weakness brought on by the drugs, and she started showing signs of improvement. The next morning, she slowly began to eat, walk and drink again.
Her rescuers named her Suzi to mark her new journey in life. As Suzi was recovering under the dedicated care at Faithful Friends, her story started to make the local news. Her story touched a lot of families, and one such family from Delaware jumped at the chance to adopt her.
Suzi now lives with her new family, and rest assured, she will not be put to any harm ever again.
Watch her amazing road to recovery below!
