The holidays are going strong with thousands of adoptions worldwide! Here is this week’s ‘Most Heartwarming Story’ from Iams Home 4 the Holidays! Each Thursday Helen Woodward Animal Center announces the weekly winner of that week’s ‘Most Heartwarming Story’ from Iams Home 4 the Holidays! Animal welfare organizations from around the world are working together to find loving homes for 1.5 million orphaned animals this holiday season.
This week’s winner comes from CSRA Happy Tails Rescue, located in Appling, Georgia.
“This puppy was given away in the Walmart parking lot to a young couple. The couple had no fenced yard and left the puppy out to roam the neighborhood, dodging cars in the road.
Luckily a Good Samaritan offered the couple to find the puppy a home through a rescue organization and they agreed.
Only three days before Christmas, most rescues are already overloaded due to foster homes on vacation or having visiting relatives, so finding someone to foster an 8-week-old puppy at the last minute is not easy. Someone was surely looking out for this little guy, Ben, because we found a foster willing to take him in. And after posting his adorable photo on the website, we had many interested adopters.
Little Ben will be a well loved part of their family!”
Thank you, CSRA Happy Tails Rescue!
Remember: each week we choose a heartwarming story and that organization or rescue will be in the running for a $500 prize at the end of the campaign!
