By the time rescuers arrived, they found Merry lying motionless barely clinging to life. She belonged to someone because she was found with a piece of rope tied around her neck. The baby cow was so sick, that she was not aware help had finally arrived. That is when rescuers quickly wrapped her in a blanket and rushed her back to their shelter, hoping that they could save her.

“Her body was completely lifeless when we lifted her,” Animal Aid Unlimited wrote in a video about Merry’s rescue.

Once Merry got to their shelter, they started her on IV fluids since she was severely dehydrated. For four days they gave her milk and IV fluids, and she did not seem to be improving at all. They were worried she wasn’t going to make it…

Once Merry took her first steps, there was no stopping her. She was prancing around like a puppy before long and even running. She loves all of her new human and animal friends and spends every day exploring.
