    I am the one who found little ‘Jolly Rancher’ on our walk at Whiffin .
    I am so happy to see she made it past the first 24 hours and is still in care. I hope she has a fighting spirit and will make a perfect recovery.
    I am SO grateful to everyone involved in her rescue and care! Thank you all!
