ELLIE MAE'S MIRACULOUS JOURNEY
Late last August there was a brutal dog attack inside a local shelter, and a female dog who later became known as Ellie Mae desperately needed help. In order for You Lucky Dog Rescue to get her out and get her vetting help, she needed a Foster home to go where she would heal from her multiple bite wounds. After pleas to our YLD community, a hero Foster stepped up for Ellie Mae and swiftly she was on her way to one of our partner vets to clean her wounds and stitch her up. Unfortunately, they also discovered she was heartworm positive and would need to undergo heartworm treatment. Ellie Mae endured alot, but never lost her loving spirit. After a long, healing stay at her Foster home, friends of the family expressed their desire to Adopt Ellie Mae. There were happy tears all around as she made her journey to Forever Home.
Thank you Karen H-W for Fostering and caring for Ellie Mae, and being her absolute hero! Thank you Schnorf family for Adopting Ellie Mae, continuing to give her the comfort and care she's come to love.
Foster Homes save the lives of shelter dogs. Foster families provide a temporary safe haven for a shelter dog as it awaits placement in an adoptive home. You Lucky Dog Rescue covers all vetting expenses and assigns you an experienced volunteer mentor to guide you every Paw-Step of the way. You will never walk alone at You Lucky Dog Rescue. We will work with you to find a shelter dog that is suitable to your lifestyle and preferences.
