Ellen, a tiny little Chihuahua named Mia was the inspiration behind The Mia Foundation. She was born with a cleft palate and it was suggested at birth that she be euthanized. She was given a chance and in return gave much love, hope and inspiration to many people all over the world! A true success story is Mikey who was born with twisted back legs and a weird bald spot on the top of his head. He was sent to The Mia Foundation at two weeks old and therapy was started on his legs. Mikey went on to make a full recovery. His legs are perfectly normal and the bald spot is covered with fur. He is a happy little guy that has found his forever home. Mick was born with Swimmer Puppy Syndrome but thanks to The Mia Foundation he is walking tall (and running and playing and loving life)! Paralysis and deformities have not stopped these pets from being saved by these wonderful people.
