C.A.R.E. Name: Karyn
C.A.R.E. volunteers go above and far, far beyond. Read the heartwarming story of little dog Karyn, who arrived at C.A.R.E. on a November Saturday afternoon, literally blind from neglect [see the before/after photo}. With most of the other volunteers busy working at our annual Holiday C.A.R.E. Faire, cat volunteer Karin stepped up to get the little dog immediate medical attention. Karin then offered to foster the little white dog until she was healthy enough to be adopted. And... fast-forward to this week, when little Karyn went home to her new forever family. Karin shared this update:
"My sweet li'l foster dog Karyn was adopted this afternoon by a lovely couple I had the pleasure of meeting. As luck would have it, I had a rare entire weekend off since I'm on vacation so I could have Karyn there for the whole adoption hours time. This couple happened to come in when we opened to see our available dogs and when they spotted me holding Karyn, they immediately felt the strong connection to her. Another lady had an appointment to see her, which didn't work out, but this couple came right back when we called to ask if they wanted to adopt her today. When we were first talking to them they begged us to let them adopt her instead of waiting for the other person but of course they knew they had to at least give the other person a chance. We could tell Karyn was immediately at ease with them so it will be one very happy family. Here is the before and after shot of her. Amazing transformation and now she has her furever home! What a great way to end the weekend but I'm going to miss her a lot. She really touched my heart. "
