After being hit by a car a few weeks ago and her owner being unwilling to collect her from the pound, Angel has now found a new home and family. 

She was struck by a white Hilux on the Wentworth road about three weeks ago, the car didn’t stop and she was knocked unconscious. 

A mine engineer picked her up, contacted Dr Guillaume Tabateau at the Broken Hill Veterinary Clinic and brought her into the clinic about 6am. 

Angel had a microchip so they contacted her owners. They asked whether it would cost anything to get her out and, after being told it would, they decided to surrender her. 

Dr Tabateau said that Angel had recovered over the past few weeks and had not suffered any permanent injuries. 

Fortunately, someone saw a post on the ‘Far West Animal Rescue’ page announcing that she was available for adoption. The woman recognised Angel as a litter mate to one of her previous dogs and decided to take her. 

Angel is now set to start her new life on a property with her new family.
