Written by CP's VP of Intakes

There are many tales of strange and unusual happenings by small beings called leprechauns. They are thought to be fairy like creatures that work hard making shoes and storing all their gold coins from the shoes in a pot that is kept at the end of a rainbow. Should a leprechaun ever be caught by a human, they can offer three wishes for their release.

Our Leprechaun has a little different story to tell of strange and unusual happenings in his life that were not very good. First, this estimated 8-10 year old boy got lost from his family some how and got picked up by animal control. No one came looking for little Leprechaun and unfortunately the shelter just didn't have the staff to care for this little boy the way he needed. They had hoped his family would come looking for him or that he would be adopted and so held on to him for several weeks until it became painfully apparent that he needed some medical care which they were not prepared or able to provide.

When little Leprechaun was captured by animal control he had three wishes himself: 1) someone to help him with his medical issues; 2) someone to protect him if he became in danger at the shelter; and finally 3) to be able to find a forever home to live out the rest of his life. Our little Leprechaun got all three of his wishes this past weekend when he became a CP boy and truly has found his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow ... it's called being part of the CP family

He is currently at the vet being cleaned up and treated for his eye and skin infections while further testing is being done to determine what else this boy will need to get him healthy again.

May the Luck of the Irish be with little Leprechaun!
