We thought he was either lost or abandoned.
He was spotted wandering up and down the river road by the playa and Magana’s Restaurant. His fur was matted and dirty and wore a faded blue collar.
Surely, he had an owner and simply got away. Someone had to be looking for him!
We waited for a response to our fliers and when no one claimed him he became part of our foster and adoption network.
We named him DOODLE (because he was sort-of poodle) and his sad story became very happy.
While in foster care, he got looked at by a Vet and spiffed up. He even got a bright yellow sweater! He was all ready to roll right into a San Diego adoption.
On a wonderful Sunday in May, he was taken to Petco Unleashed in Chula Vista where he found his new FURever home. Jackie Rawding, his foster and adoption coordinator placed him in the arms of a loving Mom and family. She spoke Spanish- like him- and her children made his dream complete. He was so happy Jackie reports “he didn’t even look back.”
This is the stuff that adoption dreams are made of!
So many lost and abandoned pets aren’t as lucky. They go unnoticed as they wander the streets desperate and alone. Oftentimes they are dropped off at highly trafficked areas like taxi stops, restaurants and convenient stores. This is an alarming practice and we still can’t believe that pets can be abandoned like this. Learn more. https://www.petsecure.com.au/pet-care/many-pets-abandoned/
Our hope is that we continue our Education Program “Love Your Pet” “Ama A Tu Mascota” to grow awareness to the responsibilities of pet ownership.
