A valley non-profit that works tirelessly to save animals who have no chance left is hopeful that one pup still does have a chance at a happy life. 
 
They're trying to find a home for a chocolate lab named Brady, who is recovering from horrible neglect. 
 
Today, Brady has a healthy appreciation for the game of fetch. 
 
 
Just a few months ago, Brady was on the brink of death. Director of Animals Benefit Club, Andra Jeffress, shared a startling image of the 2-year-old canine when she first rescued him. 
 
“He was just bones, there was no flesh, there was really nothing to him. He was just skin and bones,” said Jeffress. 
 
“This is a case where neglect turned into abuse,” said Jeffress. “To treat a dog, to treat anything living the way this dog was treated is just appalling.” 
 
Brady spent three weeks in the hospital. It turned out he was suffering from an upper repertory infection known as valley fever. He was also under fed and severely underweight.
 
“He was just very sick, so he had to be medicated and treated in the hospital and given very nutritious, high calorie food to turn him around,” said Jeffress. 
 
Today, Brady is well on his way to making a full recovery and he is looking for a forever home.
