Ruby was rescued in cooperation with law enforcement officials who discovered her on a local farm, hidden from view, starving, and pregnant. Two days after she was rescued, she gave birth to a filly and although every effort was made to save her, the foal passed away within hours of her birth. Ruby was treated for anemia and severe starvation, and for a while her survival was uncertain. But her will to live was strong, and throughout her recovery, her warm and affectionate personality shined through. Ruby grew strong and beautiful, and was adopted in 2015 to a wonderful family.
