T his beautiful girl was rescued after she was found to be suffering with Canine Distemper, and instantly won over everyone’s hearts. Making a fantastic recovery, Vellamma soon settled into life at the sanctuary once she was healthy enough to be transferred there, and she is one of the first to greet visitors when they walk through the gate. Always cheerful and upbeat, she would love to be adopted, although we know her chances are slim. However, we’re hopeful that she might at least find a sponsor one day, who could be her virtual guardian angel. Of course, all sponsored animals can be visited as often as you like, and if you become a sponsor, you could experience the joy of being greeted at our sanctuary gate by so many friendly, furry faces.
On October 21st, 2023, in an unfortunate encounter with a large cobra that accidentally entered her enclosure, both Vellamma and the snake succumbed to an unexpected and untimely death. She will be fondly remembered for her die-hard attitude and feisty demeanor, and will always remain our sanctuary mascot!
