Pumba’s story is a testament to the transformative power of love and dedication. When we found him as a stray, he was a portrait of resilience, despite having almost no fur to cover his fragile body. His journey began with a devoted medical foster, one committed to addressing every aspect of his health, especially his skin, and nurturing his spirit back to vitality. Through their unwavering love and care, Pumba’s strength and health were restored, and he even re-grew his once-lost fur.
Pumba, a precious soul brimming with joy and energy, soon found a forever place in the hearts of his foster parents and many staff members. Months turned into years, and it became evident that they simply couldn’t bear to let him go. Every March 4th, like clockwork, they reach out to our Foster Department, sharing birthday pictures and memories, celebrating the joy they’ve found together. These updates resonate deeply with the staff, serving as a touching reminder of the profound reasons we dedicate ourselves to the welfare of animals.
Pumba’s tale is yet another beautiful example of a “foster to forever,” where not every foster animal is adopted by a different family. It’s a beautiful way for a family to ensure that the dog or cat they welcome into their home is a perfect fit, enriching their lives in a way that words just can’t capture.
And they lived happily ever after!
while in his furever home!
