Princess is a female shep mix that lived with her family in Colorado for the past 8 years. She was loved and cared for by her mom and dad, but now, due to a series of bad luck and unemployment, the family is homeless.
Homelessness not only affects people, but also animals that are caught in the middle. The family made it to Red Lake and moved into the homeless shelter. They are looking for housing and the opportunities they are left with do not allow Princess to join them.
I picked up Princess yesterday, took her to the vet and had her spayed and vaccinated. She appears in very nice shape, but she is depressed due to losing her family.
I felt so bad to hear her crying as we drove away from the homeless shelter and really felt even more badly for her than the other reservation homeless strays, because she has a family that loves her and it tore out her little heart. Most of the homeless animals we rescue from the streets and dumps really have no human connection, so they are happy to come to the shelter, but Princess is grieving her family.
The good good news is that All Dog Rescue has a foster home for her so Princess only spent a few nights at the shelter before leaving on a transport on Mother's Day to her new home.
I am grateful for your support that allows us to help animals like Princess.
