MEET OUT 2017 OFFICIAL RACE MASCOT!!
Angel began life in Cairo as a Baladior Egyptian street dog. As often happens when dogs are left to roam the streets in a large city Angel was hit by a truck. Both of her back legs were broken and her spine twisted. However, Angel's luck changed when a kind person took her from the street where she surely would have died to a shelter, the Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals (ESMA). This was in 2008 and ESMA had only been in existence since late 2007 but they were there for Angel! They loved her and taught her to love people! She healed with a useless left back leg and a right back leg with limited mobility, but with her sweet spirit intact. In October 2012 Angel was brought to the United States by an Egyptian American woman who is a frequent visitor and supporter of ESMA. In Atlanta Angel's useless left leg was removed and soon she was ready to be adopted by her foster family. It didn't take them long to recognize Angel's very special way of connecting to people. This lead to Angel's involvement in the Happy Tails Pet Therapy program.
