A New Life for a Snowflake…!

Hello Readers!

We have good news to share! We've received a lovely update on one of our rescues.

Snowflake was a lovely little gal who rode on transport 85 last November. Thanks to SSP's wonderful supporters 28 dogs were moved to no-kill rescues in the Northeast that month.

An SSP Board member actually found Snowflake by chance, abandoned on the side of the road in Georgia. She was sitting alone on a desolate road with no houses, a road notorious for people dumping unwanted animals. As the car came closer, Snowflake dropped the Coca-Cola bottle she had been chewing and stepped out into the road

Unable to drive past, Snowflake went home with our Board member where she was fostered for a couple of weeks. She was treated for fleas, ticks, and intestinal parasites. When lost pet flyers posted at gas stations, animal control, and the humane society produced no owner, Snowflake was put on the list to go north.

Now take a look at how Snowflake has grown!

She has been adopted into a wonderful home in New York, where, we hear, she has taken a great liking to snow!

Snowflake has been renamed Lilly, and is getting along very well. House and crate training were a breeze as were basic commands. Her new owner is being very patient with her as they go through all the steps of getting used to each other. Lilly has started obedience classes, and she loves it. She's really great with unfamiliar dogs and people- She's a charmer at the local pet store.

Look at that face! I was shocked, and really happy, when I saw the recent pictures.

Her adopter thinks Lilly will become an excellent companion, and perhaps even a therapy dog.

A big thanks to Lilly's new owner for giving Snowflake a second chance and a wonderful life. And a huge thanks to all of SSP's supporters who helped get Snowflake on the Transport. This is what your generosity becomes!!
