Mom was at an impasse as to what to write about regarding "Blogging The Change". So many bloggers have written about so many important topics, she was at a loss.
So, I've decided to write a little bit about the rescue group that literally saved my life. As many of you know, mom found me through Petfinder.com. Thank goodness fur Petfinder.com! We often wonder how many pets found their forever homes thanks to them.
Anyway, several years ago, mom decided she needed a new dog (after her Mathilda went to the Rainbow Bridge). While surfing through Petfinder, she came upon a photo of a wee coonhound. The background story: A litter of Treeing Walker Coonhound puppies were left at a Georgia "kill" shelter, all suffering from Parvo. Parvo is often a death sentence, and for a litter of unwanted puppies, it seemed as if we were doomed.
Thankfully, Eleventh Hour Rescue, based in Rockaway, NJ, worked one of their many miracles and transported me and my littermates from Georgia to New Jersey. Once here, their wonderful vets treated and cured us of Parvo. According to our vet, I was a very lucky pup indeed! Parvo is a killer! In our part of the country most dogs are vaccinated against it, but in some states, it's not required.
And remember Daniel, the gas chamber survivor? Thanks to Eleventh Hour Rescue, he's on his way to a furever home too!
We're forever grateful to Eleventh Hour Rescue and my fosters Danelle and John! We try to attend all their events, but we really love going to their annual Puptoberfest! It's like a big reunion of all the rescues, and they showcase all the fosters waiting fur their forever homes!
Please remember, we can all make a difference and everyone can help make a change! Hoping that all pets find their forever homes, just like I did!
