Sweet Caroline and I will be walking with Houston Pets Alive! at Strut Your Mutt for the second time this year. This is an event that supports rescues that save animals from being unneccessarily euthenized.
As many of you know, this is a cause I dedicate a lot of my time and resources toward because it's something I truly believe in.
Sweet Caroline was living outdoors underneath a porch with her puppies. When she was at risk for being euthenized Houston Pets Alive! tagged her and placed her with a foster. She and her puppies were properly treated by the medical staff and then adopted out to new homes when they were ready. It wasn't until several months later that I met Caroline after she was brought back and needed somewhere safe to go. I met her at an adoption event, and she stole my heart! I instantly offered to foster her, and it wasn't long until I applied to permanently adopt her.
Houston Pets Alive! helped Caroline in so many ways. They saved her from being euthenized, found her multiple foster homes, a forever home, AND they treated her for heartworms (typically $1,000-$1,500 treatment at a private vet).
Caroline is now living heartworm free, has two dog brothers, a kitty brother, and welcomes new foster dogs into her home regularly!
Whether it's for Sweet Caroline, Houston Pets Alive!, or the overall cause, please consider donating!
