You might know Maggie the Wunderdog as the superstar she is today through her inspirational Instagram account. You may even have had the pleasure of meeting her at one of our events or fundraisers. But when we first met Maggie (then called Angie), she was almost unrecognisable as the dog she is today.
Maggie was the first dog we rescued from Lebanon back in 2018, where she’d been found on the streets, chained to a box, and suffering from multiple gun shot wounds to the eyes, face, and body. Blind, vulnerable and terrified, she urgently needed help and we were only too happy to provide it. Thanks to the support of our community, we raised the funds to fly Maggie to the UK where the wonderful Kasey was waiting to foster her; but it soon became clear that this special little girl was going to be impossible to say goodbye to!
Kasey adopted Maggie officially at the end of 2018, and has been helping her live her very best life ever since. In fact, Maggie has gone on to appear on This Morning and The One Show, as well as featuring in multiple global news articles and making some 250,000 new friends online through her Instagram account. She shows the world just how inspiring, resilient and full of joy rescue dogs can be if only they’re shown a little compassion, and defies expectations wherever she goes.
Maggie and Kasey represent everything we stand for as a charity: bravery, happiness, open-mindedness and unwavering compassion. We are honoured to have their support, and couldn’t be happier to have them on board as Wild at Heart Foundation ambassadors.
