Thanks to Inkster volunteer Ron for making the trip to All About Animals (roughly 45 minutes one way) possible! Without his help we would not have been able to get these 2 precious faces fixed.
Little CJ that you see, well, that girl has finally pumped out her last litter…7 in all. A very good mother, she even started producing milk and fiercely protecting a newborn litter of kittens once. Luckily for her, she lives in a home that not only keeps her inside, but lets her have the run of the house and sleep on the bed! It’s so nice for us to be able to return a dog to a home where we know it will be loved and cared for.
Mr. Bongo, on the other hand, not so fortunate. Given we met his owner by way of having to knock on the door with a neglect complaint, we at least felt lucky he was civil and agreed to get him fixed. Trying further to look at the glass as half full, (very hard to do) we felt lucky that Mr. Bongo has a nice doghouse and isn’t chained, for despite the pleaded attempts to follow post-surgery care, as we walked away we saw him being walked back to the yard.
It broke our hearts. Even after years of having to see this, it still breaks our hearts.
Mr. Bongo even loved being at the vet and had to be picked up to get his massive body out of there!
I’m sure he will never forget all of the love he received from everyone that day…even if he was drugged for most of it!
Again, we can NOT thank Inkster volunteer Ron enough for helping transport these dogs. It literally takes an entire day.
