Che-Che is a little nine-year-old dog taken to the Monmouth County SPCA during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. She had just lost both of her owners to the deadly virus, and the pooch had no one to take care of her. She didn’t fully understand where her parents went and why she was alone all of a sudden.
She was very terrified when she was brought to the local shelter. She primarily kept to herself and avoided contact with the shelter staff and the other dogs. Apparently, she missed her owners and wasn’t adapting to the shelter life. The staff members knew that she was deteriorating each day, and they needed to find her a good home fast.
Safe and secure
One of their primary goals was to let Che-Che feel safe and secure. They tried very hard to help the poor pooch adjust to her temporary environment. They spent a lot of time comforting her and letting her know that she was loved.
They also got her treatment for some minor health conditions. Che-Che slowly opened up, but they could tell she still had some apprehensions. She needed a good home.
The shelter shared her photo and story online, and people started handing in applications for her adoption. As the staff members wanted to make sure they got the right family, they meticulously went through each and every application.
Like a princess
Two weeks after she was brought to the shelter, Che-Che was adopted. They found a local woman who vowed to treat the dog like a princess. The new mom was very thankful for being chosen.
When Che-Che was finally going to her new home, everyone at the shelter went out to bid her goodbye. They all clapped and cheered as she went inside her owner’s car and drove off to her new life.
