This is Stinky when he came in with severe head injuries, fractures to the head and face, swelling and infected  necrotic tissue (which is how he earned his name). 

And this is Stinky and a friend being release back into the wild  3 and a half months later.

This is Big Hoss, he was found as a stray in Waterloo,  Iowa.   He had pneumonia and was not expected to live.   After a few weeks of extensive treatment, the right temp and humidity, he has fully recovered.
