SAHS says Denali was quarantined from the rest of the animals at the shelter in a special dermatology ward where she received specialized attention and medicated baths.

Nearly four weeks later, Denali was starting to gain weight and grow her fur back. Now, she is a joyful, energetic, and loving companion looking for a long term home.
