Lassy was rescued from the Keells Super in Thalawathugoda. Her entire body was inflamed and causing severe discomfort. She could only walk very slowly and with much pain. Once in the hospital, tests confirmed she had filaria that had progressed into elephantiasis.
Lassy went into surgery to remove some of the growths and she was put on a course of medication. A month later, she was ready for release. Umanga, who was a customer at Keells Super came forward to give this beautiful soul a loving home.
