Castries, Saint Lucia: HelpAWS, the animal welfare organization of Saint Lucia, welcomes another puppy while bidding goodbye to one on March 21, 2023. “We weren’t out looking for her or expecting to come back to the shelter today with another puppy, but fate put her in our path, almost literally, as we were driving back from the airport and saw her all alone on the side of the road,” the organization noted.
It further mentioned that, like so many before her, the volunteers of HelpAWS have no idea where she came from or how she ended up alone at such a tender age. But they’re thankful they were near and that she is now safe at the shelter. She is a beauty, that’s for sure, and her eyes are absolutely mesmerizing! Just one look from this little one could melt even the hardest heart.
As per the update, for now, she’s tucked away in a pen with a soft blanket, where she can sleep peacefully, knowing she’s safe. She’ll soon be rid of the fleas and ticks that have made a feast of her little body and the belly full of worms that make her feel awful. She’ll never have to worry about the basic necessities of life again and can instead focus on things like which toy makes the best noise and which side of her belly she prefers to be scratched.
HelpAWS, additionally, informed that Fate has a funny way of twisting up a well-planned day and steering in a completely different direction than the organization thought it would be going when our feet hit the floor each morning. And that’s okay because the purpose is to be whatever these animals need, when they need it, regardless of what plans are already on the agenda.
The organization concluded the post and asked for a donation, stating, “Although every little life that comes through the shelter doors is priceless, it costs a staggering amount of money to care for each of them before they are able to fly off to their forever home. That’s why we rely so heavily on – and are so appreciative of – your donations! If you would like to help us cover the cost of care for this sweet thing and the others at the shelter, donations can be sent to [email protected] using e-transfer, PayPal or Zelle, or to @helpaws using Venmo.”
