MERIDEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Snowflake, the Maltese Poodle mix in Meriden that was found malnourished and wandering the streets with a rubber band on her mouth has finally recovered from surgery and has been adopted.
Meriden Police Department and Animal Control are thanking the public for all the generous donations that helped Snowflake get the medical treatment she needed from her injuries.
“So many people had also expressed their willingness to adopt Snowflake and although she has now been placed into a loving home, it is nice to know that so many kind hearted people were willing to step forward and open up their homes to her,” Sgt. Darrin McKay wrote in an email.
On Monday December 1st, a Good Samaritan found Snowflake in front of the community health center and called Meriden Police where they found Snowflake roaming the area. She was malnourished, dehydrated and unable to open her mouth because someone had placed a rubber and around her mouth.
Snowflake will be at her new forever home soon and is recovering from a successful surgery.
