For the month of November, Beading Divas to the Rescue is happy to be raising funds for Pima Paws for Life (PPFL).
PPFL helps to relieve our community’s (Tucson) open admission shelter, Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) by removing some of the sick dogs, nursing them back to health, and then adopting out these animals. This means more shelter dogs have a better chance to find homes vs. the grim alternative.
Here’s one happy ending story:
PPFL received Zeus from PACC in February. He was extremely underweight and had a large wound on his back that had been stitched closed at PACC. He had a severe upper respiratory infection and needed fluids for dehydration. It took Zeus a long time to recover, but through it all, he was always good-natured. Zeus spent several more months at the PPFL kennel waiting for his forever home, enjoying time spent with volunteers and his squeaky toys.
Then one day Josh and his family met Zeus and decided to foster him. After a week in foster, his family couldn’t wait to make his adoption final! Zeus loves his new mom and girl and also has a 13 year old pittie sister he gets along great with too. His new dad Josh said, “I know Zeus was at PPFL for some time, but it’s because he had to wait for us to find him. Forever Love and Squeaky Toys, Zeus!”
