Obesity is not slowing Abby down… she just found her forever home! On June 26th, TAF was asked to help a morbidly obese senior that had been given up by her owners weeks earlier. The weight of her body made her legs shake and she need medical attention to have some suspect growths removed.
Once in our care, Abby was able to get in for surgery that very next week. Besides being 20 lbs. overweight, Abby’s test results were good and she was ready for adoption. She just needed to find a home that was knowledgeable and help her to safely lose the weight. The night that we picked Abby up from the vet, we posted a photo that received a lot of attention and shared over 1,000 times. Abby was very lucky to have so many people rooting for her. After a few great applications came in, one in particular seemed the best fit for Abby. It was a home that had taken in beagle mixes for years and specialized in the abused and neglected… especially the seniors. This past Saturday the 11th, Abby made her way up to Wisconsin to meet her potential family. Upon arrival, Abby was met by a lovely family, 4 adorable pups and acres of land that were flush against the surrounding woods… the scenery was breathtaking and the family could not have been nicer or more accepting of their new fur guest. After an hour of socializing the pups it was official… Abby had found her forever home!!! We knew that Abby had hit the jackpot when we left that day but after getting updates throughout the week she actually hit the lottery! Thank you to Abby’s new family for taking in the rescue dogs that have needed it most. You are all exemplary examples of the good in the world!
