Give a warm welcome to Griff!

Written by a CP Intakes volunteer

Last Wednesday, Intakes was contacted by a Westie rescue friend who had been contacted directly by a shelter rescue coordinator about a cairn boy who is heartworm positive. Being heartworm positive is a death sentence in shelters if a rescue can’t be found. And many smaller rescue groups don’t have the resources to take in and treat these dogs. Thankfully, we got approval to bring him into the family!

Mary S. (Griff’s rescue angel) not only volunteered to pick him up from the shelter and deliver him to our vet, but she also offered to foster him and get him through his heartworm treatment.

Griff is estimated to be 3-4 years old, and Mary’s initial report is that he is very cute, active and friendly.

Please give Griff a big “Welcome to the CP Family” and a huge “thank you” to Mary for jumping through hoops to make this happen. And last but not least a big thank you to the entire CP organization for the support and donations that make it possible to save little cairns like Griff.
