With less than 24 hours left before she was set to be euthanized at a local shelter, Teagan was in desperate need of a foster family. A volunteer at LVPAC immediately contacted a waiting family to give Teagan a temporary home. The LVPAC provided transportation, supplies, training and guidance to help support the fostering process.
Teagan quickly won her foster family's heart and today she is a forever member of the family. She is a well trained, gentle dog who shares a special bond with the children in her family.
I am so thankful for the LVPAC stepping up and following through to help save such a sweet and wonderful girl. - Cassandra, Teagan's Forever Mom
Sophie had been kept at a "shelter" where she had been deemed aggressive and was confined to a small crate. LVPAC helped retrieve her from her abusive situation and posted her photo on Facebook, asking for help in finding her a foster family or a forever home. Thankfully, a kindhearted family stepped forward to foster Sophie. Through patience, love and determination, Sophie and her foster family learned to slowly trust each other, their bond deepened and Sophie's foster family became her forever family.
"Sophie is still growing and learning what it means to be a dog," says Sophie's mom Adrienne, "She has her moments where her trust issues become evident...She's the most affectionate dog my husband and I have ever known. She loves snuggling under the covers, giving kisses and above all, playing Frisbee is her favorite thing to do. She's silly and playful and full of love.
We don't know what our lives would be like if she hadn't been posted by the LVPAC on Facebook that day...Sophie is evidence that every dog deserves a chance and we are so lucky to be able to give her that. - Adrienne, Sophie's Forever Mom
Paralyzed from the waist down, Obie was found abandoned on the streets of Allentown. After his rescue, veterinarians tried to surgically repair the damage to his spine, but were unsuccessful. LVPAC sent out a call for help, asking for donations to buy a specially constructed cart to make him mobile again.
The donations came pouring in and LVPAC was able to purchase the special wheeled cart. With the aid of the new cart, Obie quickly started moving about on his own. To see this heartwarming story, watch the video from 69 News.
This is probably the most rewarding thing I've been able to do. - David Lee, LVPAC Co-Founder
Blind...terrified...and a pitbull in one of Philly's highest kill shelters. This was Coffee's sad situation when an LVPAC board member responded to a plea to help save this beautiful girl. LVPAC arranged for a foster family (one of LVPAC's biggest supporters) to take care of her and she was quickly rescued from the shelter.
Coffee immediately won over the hearts of her foster family, who promptly adopted her. Today she is a cherished member of her forever family and a local celebrity as well. She even has her own Facebook page, where her faithful Facebook fans can keep track of her daily activities.
Her kind heart and playful spirit reminds us all that being blind doesn't stop one from enjoying life.
This 13 week old puppy had been kept in a dark garage with just food and water since the age of 6 weeks. A good samaritan had rescued the pup from these terrible conditions, but wasn't able to keep him.
An LVPAC volunteer reached out to us for help. We worked with our rescue partner, Pawsitively Purrfect Rescue, to find this pup a temporary home and the LVPAC funded his veterinary care. Because of our joint efforts, today Champ is going to a wonderful, forever home.
Through the efforts of a kind hearted good samaritan, a rescue shelter and the LVPAC, Champ finally has a loving, forever home.
