Miss Willie was chained outside for 12 years, and the only bright spot in her life was when PETA’s fieldworkers paid her a visit—which they did whenever they could. But one day, PETA staffer Jes Cochran arrived to find her coughing, wheezing, and so weak that she was unable to stand. Her owner finally agreed to give her up, and Jes rushed her to the vet. Miss Willie made it through the night, but she was suffering from serious medical conditions and only had weeks to live.
That’s when Jes decided to give Miss Willie the bucket list of a lifetime, including a blowout birthday bash, a pizza night, a canoe ride, a massage, a trip to a fire station, and a day at the beach. For the first time in her life, Miss Willie slept inside on soft bedding after fun-filled days and finally got the chance to experience the life that she should have always lived.
PETA’s mission statement is that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way:
