Enter Amy Shever of 2nd Chance for Pets. Amy is the ultimate animal advocate for those homeless animals who already have a disadvantage in the form of a medical condition. Through Facebook, Twitter, and frequent emails, Amy has been able to communicate the plight of Finn and has miraculously secured donations and support from the Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) to perform the necessary eye surgery, and from the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe (HSTT) to take Finn in and find him a permanent home! Although I will never know all of the details, I do know that many people were involved to try to save this loving dog from an all too common destiny at our shelters.
A special thanks also goes out to Rob Hugger, who writes a blog about all things dog in San Jose. He was quick to offer support in spreading the word to locate Finn a short term foster situation in San Jose while he undergoes eye surgery. His blog post will reach many other San Jose animal advocates and hopefully can help secure Finn a temporary home. If you are a dog lover, you need to follow DawgHugger. He is the ultimate San Jose Dog Advocate!
We are so fortunate to have all of these animal advocates in our community! Won't you join us and help make a difference in the lives of companion animals?
