Canine Path is delighted to announce the successful adoption of Saint, who was rescued by the League of Extraordinary Mutts back in February, spared from the SEAACA euth list minutes before his deadline. Canine Path is proud to be part of the overall effort to give Saint a new and happy home. Our Suzanne Mackay was instrumental in meeting with Saint’s foster family to train him and teach him leash manners!

How a Rescue Dog Found a New Home

According to League of Extraordinary Mutts president Sarah Fanai, the shelter noted that Saint was displaying aggression and growling. He also had kennel cough. Despite having no party interested in rescuing Saint, Sarah went there and did what she could. Miraculously, at the last minute, Canine Adoption and Rescue League – CARL took in Saint on short notice.

The next day, Saint was taken to a clinic for vaccinations, and on the way his aggression went away and he started giving people cuddles. Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center (SPARC) got Saint a neuter appointment and transportation, while Sarah Kissel arranged for a foster or adopter for saint. Then Canine Path’s Suzanne Mackay met with the foster/adopter family to train Saint and teach him leash manners.

In her post, Sarah Fanai also credits Penny Cooper, Cara Cooper, Erica Cabanel-Meyer, Elizabeth Quesada for their networking efforts which helped find the right people to help and ultimately take in Saint.

That is how rescue dogs are saved. In such a short span of time, many people and organizations cooperated to save an innocent life and find him a new and loving home. This is why we urge prospective pet owners to think long and hard before getting a new pet because it is a life time commitment. We also encourage pet owners to spay or neuter their pets to decrease the population of homeless animals. And, as always, please opt to adopt rather than shop!
