An incredible 25 days later, a neighbor about four blocks away, found her, and we got her back. She was skinny, missing a front tooth, and had puncture wounds on her back and a broken rib.

A year later, she’s totally back to normal…

…The organization’s failure to follow through on its commitment is extremely disappointing, especially considering that students from the school use the playground during the week, said Peggy Romo-West, county supervisor for the 12th District, where the park is located. Guadalupe does not have its own playground.

Pascual Rodriguez denied making the commitment and said he has no control over the money. However, emails obtained by Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service through a Freedom of Information Act request show differently…

…When Southridge Mall did not renew the Rescue Center’s lease in 2012, Rowell and her coworkers launched a fundraising effort to find a new location for the no-kill shelter. Fox6 came to the center to cover the story, and during a commercial break, Rowell shared a photo of Daniel with the reporter. They decided on the spot to add a fun twist to raise money for the shelter and asked viewers to pledge $26 – $1 for each of Daniel’s toes.

Within a minute of announcing the $26 pledge request, the phones started ringing off the hook. The story went viral and was picked up by the Huffington Post and the Associated Press. Within eight weeks, Daniel’s toes raised $120,000 and the Rescue Center was able to move to a new home…
