AWC Success Stories - Sonny & Bella!
April 12th, 2011 by admin
Sonny and Bella were two extreme cases. They were previously owned & a concerned neighbor approached AWC for help in asking the “owners” if they would consider relinquishing the dogs. The former “owners” didn’t even have names for the dogs, had stopped feeding them, & the pups, when given up were so weak that they could not receive their vaccines for two weeks. Additionally, poor Sonny was too ill to even stand on his own & Bella was weak and fearful. Initially, there wasn’t even a good spot to pat these poor pups as they were so boney and starved.
After an angel named, Elena, volunteered to foster these sweet dogs, they began with three regular meals daily. They eventually, were completely cleaned up and rid of all fleas and ticks, and the patches in their fur began to grow back and become soft.
One evening about two months after their rescue, Sonny came along for foks to meet at an informational chat on the “whats, whys, and hows” of AWC to a group of tourists who were on island for a writer’s workshop. The next day, a friend of one of attendees got in touch to hear more about Sonny and Bella.
After careful consideration, the family decided to adopt both dogs together. Reports back from state that they are the “sweetest dogs ever!” & AWC is so very pleased that Sonny & Bella now have the loving family that they deserve!
