I'm happy to report that Hershey found a loving home today!! A single father (Gabe) and his 9 year old son just lost their dog a few months ago. Gabe brought his son and 3 nieces (ages 8-10) to meet Hershey and Hershey was in heaven, rolling around on his back so the kids could scratch his belly - lots of hugs and playing. They'll be taking him to the mountain every Sunday to walk the paths and he's going to be neutered as soon as he's beat the tick fever. I feel very good about his new family – he’ll get lots of attention and love.
(Gabe was referred to me by a co-worker of my best friend (a former veterinary technician) – turns out he lives just a couple of miles from me & welcomes future visits to his home to check in on Hershey any time I’d like.)
Thank you all for spreading the word and offering valuable suggestions to help this deserving kid find a home. This was an amazing experience for me. Never in my life have I been connected with so many wonderful people. Hundreds of people must have received his profile via email or saw it posted on a rescue organization’s web site – a testament to the amount of hard work invested by those who rescue & foster animals to making life better for animals that didn’t ask to be homeless. The power of networking is a beautiful thing.
I appreciate everything all of you did for Hershey. Thank you for having wonderful hearts.
One more happy ending....with so many more needed.
All the best,
