Sometimes your faith is restored in the inate goodness of human beings – this week I saw it first hand. My friend Jenny who is a vet student performed her first surgery on a young dachsund named Webster.
Webster was an orphan with no place to go once he was “fixed” and Jenny was scrambling to try to find him a permanent home. I sent a note to Jane Scott of West Point because she has a soft place in her heart for poor homeless animals. She put out a note to her “followers” – especially her sister, Ann Gatlin of Jackson. Before sundown Webster had found a good home.
Jenny wrote this morning:
“TO EVERYONE WHO WONDERED:
WEBSTER WAS FINALLY ADOPTED TODAY!
He has found his forever home with a very nice lady here in the Starkville Area. She had recently lost her beloved dachsund and was so happy to have Webster join her family and help heal her heart!
I just wanna say how amazed I am at all the emails and phone calls I
received from everyone. So many people cared about Webster and it truly touched me. There were people from all over asking to foster Webster or adopt him. I never expected that so many would try so hard to help a dog in need. Its those people… its all of you that remind me why I wanted to become a veterinarian in the first place. So many caring hearts and helping hands out there. Just good people who love dogs and want to help them. I am especially grateful to Mrs. Ann Gatlin from Jackson who did so much to help me out. She is the sole reason that Webster was even able to find an owner in the first place. Thank you Ann!!!
SO THANK YOU SO! I AM SO GRATEFUL TO EVERYONE!
YAY! WE DID IT!
WEBSTER FOUND HIS FAMILY THANKS TO YOU ALL!!
With love and gratitude,
Class of 2012
Thanks Jenny – you will make a wonderful veterinarian. I wish you’d come back to Starkville to practice. Lucky Dawg and Rebel need s vet like you. Now, who adopted Webster? Can you tell?
