On Friday May 11, four of our amazing rescues flew home with our flight volunteers Maggie and Kim. Bella and Charlotte are two puppies who were found on in a horrible, malnourished state in Playa Blanca. A wonderful woman named Lucy Solis, was very proactive and reached out to us about helping them. She also sponsored these 2 sisters and their other 2 sisters, Harper and Eloise, through their rescue. Poor Eloise developed a tumor behind her eye and passed away in April 2018. Harper, the other sister with an adorable underbite, flew home to Portland, Oregon and is with her new family, loving life.
Now it is Bella and Charlottes turn! Bella was adopted by Lucy and is beginning her life in Washington D.C. with Lucy her rescuer, sponsor, and new mommy. Bella was the smallest puppy in the litter and has overcome so many challenges. We are so happy that we were able to save her and get her home to Lucy. Charlotte is also doing great in Buffalo, NY with her new family. Charlotte is one happy, playful, loving, puppy and we are going to miss her very much.
Next up is George. George is one of our older rescues who we pulled from the FRAD foundation. George is a distemper survivor and has suffered a world of abuse and neglect on the streets of Cartagena. He is now with his new mom Kristine in Pennsylvania. Kristen actually came to Cartagena and visited the FRAD foundation, picked George to adopt and then sponsored him throughout his recovery, until he was able to fly. George is one lucky boy and we wish him the best!
Last, is our adorable Bernadette. Bernie was sponsored by a wonderful woman named Juliet Thompson. Juliet fell in love with Bernie’s cute face and was determined to sponsor her and get her better. Juliet lives in NYC and was unable to adopt Bernie, however she was determined to find her the best home ever. That we did together. Erin Cappello, from Buffalo, NY adopted Bernie and now she lives with Erin, her daughter, and another one of our Cartagena Paw’s rescues, Zoey (Zoey flew home at Christmas 2016).
None of this would have been possible without our amazing supporters, sponsors, and donors. We are so grateful and wish these 4 beautiful souls the very best in their future life!
