Shelter Stars Help Save Mr. T
Shelter Stars monthly supporters make the life-saving work at Second Chance Center for Animals possible. As a special thanks to you, our Shelter Stars, we wanted to share the heartwarming story of Mr. T with you this month.
Mr. T came to Second Chance just before last Christmas, with a bunch of his friends from Western Arizona Humane Association, in Kingman, Arizona. The dogs had originally rescued him from the RUFF animal sanctuary that was closed down. Having had a very rough life, and sadly, suffering the loss of his right eye in some unknown accident, it was no surprise when Mr. T seemed a tad extra sad and cautious.
Being slightly untidy around the edges as he was, we decided to spoil the good old boy with a day at Kingsmark Kennels Spa, where he received a haircut, full body wash and serious pampering. Boy did he come back a different dog! It was like he had never received this level of care and attention from humans, and it only took this one kind deed to restore Mr. T’s faith in humanity. All of a sudden he would come to the front of his kennel to greet all visitors and seemed to really open up whenever anyone showed him affection. This change in visible attitude made the world of difference because it wasn’t very long indeed before Mr. T found his humans, who came in the form of Amanda and Sondra Kraft.
We like to keep in touch with all of our adopters and Alumni and as such receive regular updates from our new families. We can’t be happier to receive this short note from the Krafts and Mr. T,
“We wanted to let you know Mr. T is settling in really well. I can’t believe how much he likes the snow. He loves his squeaky toys and loves going for walks. So much that he will bolt out the door. He is such a delight! Mr. T is the best thing that could have happened to us. Since passing of our Cavalier, Faithy, we didn’t think we could get another dog. But the house was just too lonely. Mr. T has filled the house with Joy again. Thank you for finding him and taking care of him until we found him. We put the ramp together for Mr. T and that works for him just great. Thank you so much! Thank you so much and God Bless You All. Amanda and Sondra Kraft & Mr. T”
Mr. T’s success story is just one of the many successes this year, thanks to the caring, compassion and hope at Second Chance Center for Animals and thanks to your ongoing support. From the bottom of our hearts, and from Mr. T, many, many thanks!
