Money reunited story…and photos!
A lovely update from Karen our London co-ordinator…
We have to tell a story; luckily with a happy ending, but it could have been so different . . .
Last week our local friendly Dog Warden, Andy, sent a photo through of a beautiful Husky dog that he’d just picked up.
We didn’t recognise first off, but eagle eyed Amanda Hopson found her logged on DogLost website – her name was Money
She contacted the owners who over the moon that she’d been found safe.
The following day the council came up with the fee to have her returned . . . a huge amount for a disabled owner to have to find and they wouldn’t budge at all.
Very disappointed that the council wouldn’t consider a discount or payment plan for a gentleman in this situation. He had fallen on hard times through no fault of his own; but so obviously loved this dog – he looks after Money better than he does himself!
So today we went round to visit this family, to help update Money’s chip (which he’d been assured was up to date with his details by previous owner, but was not).
We were also able to make his day; instead of working out a payment plan to pay back the money paid on a credit card to get her home, we were able to tell him that we’d been granted funding for most of the fee from a charity. He was speechless . . .
A roller-coaster week for this family; with a really happy ending.
Look at the smile on this beautiful dog’s face!! She seriously gave the best kisses x
