Gertrude and Clementine

Love Heals All Wounds

Gertrude arrived at our clinic in Mexico in dire shape. She had been living on the street and was attacked by a pack of dogs. We were able to save her with surgery, however she was pregnant and the kittens did not survive.

Clementine arrived to our clinic with two other puppies. All three were in poor shape. Sadly, the other two did survive.

Our clinic manager noticed that Gertrude would meow and make chirping sounds whenever Clementine was in sight and show great interest in the small pup. So, she decided to let her say hello.

Gertrude immediately began purring and grooming sweet Clementine. Within minutes Clementine was asleep on her back while Gerturde groomed away and snuggled close.

So began the unlikely bond between the two. Each got stronger every day, by each other’s side.

It is said that love heals all wounds and these two sweet souls, each lost and injured in their own way, are certainly proof positive that is true.

If you are interested in adopting the darling duo, please contact us at We are hoping to find a home that will take them together.
