He is the newest member of our family. He found us at a time when we didn't know anything was missing from our lives. But, now we know better.
Abraham has had a traumatic start to his young life of 10 months. In October, Abe was hit by a truck. He had two broken legs, a broken hip and pelvis. He was brought to a kill shelter in Kentucky and because he had so many injuries, nobody wanted to adopt him. In the final hours before he was scheduled to be euthanized, he was rescued by a wonderful organization in Kokomo, Indiana called Pals for Paws. They picked him up and got him the medical attention he needed. He had surgery on October 25th and his front leg was amputated. His back leg still has nerve damage and he often walks on top of his paw. It may or may not ever completely heal. My sister Susan and my friend Carolyn happened to be at a local Petco, last weekend, when Abe was there looking for a new family. They both thought that we needed to meet him. They sent us these photos from Petco.
He was so scared and traumatized in the photo that was blasted out on the shelter's facebook page. it breaks my heart.
He and Sunny have become fast friends.
Welcome home, Abraham. We think you are perfect in every way and we love you very much!
If you are thinking of adopting a pet for the holidays or in the future, please consider working with your local pet rescue organization. What these people do is so wonderful and they care for and foster so many sweet animals who need a loving home. I am so thankful for Pals for Paws.
