I am feeling on top of the World! Why? Because of wonderful, caring friends and strangers who in an instant in time all worked together from various parts of the country to save a Siberian Husky headed for death.
A pretty Husky girl a shelter called "Girl" was scheduled to be euthanized in Upstate, New York today. It all started with a forwarded group Email from a wonderful friend of mine and fellow Husky Mom, Holly of Rochester, NY, (of the Holly and the Huskies blog) that arrived two days ago with the subject: "URGENT RESCUE NEEDED" asking if anyone could help network her and maybe get her saved.
There were only two days for this girl to live, before the shelter would euthanize her.
|The face that launched thousands of shares!|
Of course I shared the two photos on our FiveSibes: Siberian Husky K9 News & Reviews Facebook page and Twitter of this pretty Siberian Husky. The thought that this girl faced death...for what reason? troubled me to the core. I know there are hundreds of cases each and every day, and that's just one breed of dog...but she just had to be saved...
Then...a village came alive to help her...folks shared, a Husky Mom named Melissa stepped forward from Maine to comment on our page that she would foster. She needed someone to pull the Husky and also needed some help with transporting her. I contacted Ron DeMauro (at a very early hour!) from Trooper Husky Rescue in Oneida, NY and he immediately stepped up to contact the shelter and make arrangements to pull this girl.
Then Holly went and picked her up from the shelter and is keeping her safe in her home until she transports "Lily Girl" (she even gave her a name!) to Trooper Husky Rescue this weekend, where she will receive immediate vet care and then be turned over to her new foster hu-mom Melissa... and then beautiful Lily Girl will embark upon her new life! All thanks to networking!

You can also check out Lily Girl's story and "Thank You" over on Holly's blog HERE. I hope you'll pop over and also welcome Holly and her Huskies - Boo, Timber, Ariel, Nala, pup Chip, and FurAngel Oreo to our wonderful, special world her at Blogville! They are new to blogging, and I'm so glad she and her beautiful furkids are part of our great community! Be sure to let her know we asked you to stop by...and give her a howl! She's an amazing person...she literally dropped everything to be sure Lily Girl was picked up and safe with her today!
This was a an update I was so pleased to post:
