Dogs have a significant impact on our lives, and all they ask in return is for us to love and care for them.
Casper is a nine-year-old pup; his owner surrendered him in poor condition to a dog shelter in California. Casper had cancer, a broken tooth, ear infection, and many other ailments that caused him pain. The animal center did not want Casper to suffer, so they seek out local rescues and see anyone who can help.
The shelter sent emails to local rescue teams saying that they will euthanize a dog at noon the following day, to prevent any suffering, if no one comes forward to help. Later that day, volunteers from Labradors and Friends Dog Rescue Group arrived to save Casper and brought him to the nearest vet. Casper healed eventually, and the medications they gave him helped.
A foster family adopted Casper and put him on a diet to help with his recovery before going back to the vet to have some cancer cells removed. The hospital bills got harder to pay, and the rescue group cannot cover all the expenses. Then generous people stepped in to help and cover the entire hospital bills.
Thanks to those donations, Casper got the care and love he needed. Casper became healthy and got his groove back. Every day, he is thankful for his new mom by showering her with kisses, and he also enjoyed those short walks with his sister and admired any human he met. Casper’s family understands his needs, and they will shower him with affection every day.
The rescue group was thankful to all the people who donated. Because without those people, Casper will never get the treatment he needed to make his senior years golden. And it’s those people that give Casper another chance in life.
Senior dogs are the best; they always remind us to enjoy the small things in life. The story of Casper also inspired me to never give up on life even when it got me down. Reading the story of Casper made me realize that I am not alone in this world and that I have families and friends that will help me hold on.
