We could tell stories about Ommo’s innate compassion, empathy, patience and desire to nurture those around her, but you can’t believe it until you see it. Katherine says Ommo is the dog with nine lives as she has been injured in three road accidents and survived distemper even after she lost sight in one eye. There are constantly new dogs and cats staying at BCDH while receiving treatment, and Ommo is always the first to greet every new patient with a wagging tail. She often sits beside their cage, determined to keep them company even if her presence is met with barking or growling. She is a healer, a carer, a lover, and a very special presence in our animal family.
