Lucky is a 6 year old chihuahua born with a birth deformity that causes him discomfort and that also makes him hard to handle. He is at an animal shelter in California and due to his disability, he was almost immediately slated to be euthanized.
A local woman who has been rescuing dogs from high kill shelters in California and finding them loving adoptive homes in Vancouver has found him a foster home until he can be transported here at the end of January.
Once he gets here, Lucky will finally get the veterinary care he deserves, and also be measured for a front wheel dog cart. Once he is used to getting around on his new cart, we know that a new family will adopt Lucky and give him a chance at a pain-free, loved life - something he may not have known.
Lucky needs about $700 for this cart, as well as additional funds to help his foster mom cover some of his vet bills. In the next few weeks, we'll be introducing a series of fundraising activities to help raise what we need for this little guy. After having lived a life of neglect, we think it's about time he feels what it's like to have people see that he is special and worth the effort. In the meantime, please help us by sharing his story with others - and also the Chipin account that has been set up for him.
We will follow his journey on our blog over the next while until he comes to Vancouver, gets his new cart, and hopefully, find the perfect forever home. .
