Bethanee Hamilton's Remarkable Journey

Bethanee Hamilton, was found abandoned on the side of the road near Portland, Oregon. Unclaimed and alone, Beth was sent to a local shelter. During a routine spaying surgery, she flatlined but miraculously came back to life. Shortly after her incredible recovery, the Pacific NW Bulldog Rescue (PNWBR) stepped in. Dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing English and French bulldogs, PNWBR discovered Beth had a rapidly swelling and bleeding back left paw. It was a cancerous mast cell, and the best cure was amputation.

Lindsay's Heartfelt Decision

Lindsay Van Bramer, a freelance designer with a flexible schedule, saw a Facebook post from PNWBR requesting donations for Beth's operation. Despite hundreds of others wanting to adopt Beth, Lindsay felt an instant connection. "I wasn't in the market for a dog, but when I saw that post, I was done. I would do whatever necessary to get that pup!" she said.
