Cara was rescued by YAPS from a municipal shelter early in 2012. This happy Dachshund was a friend to all who met her, two and four-legged. When it came time to have her spayed it was discovered that she suffered from a diaphragmatic hernia, a condition in which a majority of her internal organs were residing up in her chest cavity. This condition led to one of her lungs collapsing, causing her to labor with every breath. YAPS worked to get Cara the necessary surgery to correct her condition and soon she had recovered from her operation and was awaiting adoption. Cara found her forever home with as the only tail wagging companion of a woman who loves and adores her.
