Metro's Gotta Foster!!!
By: N Gilbert
Her temperature has finally moved up to the normal range, and we're gradually stopping her meds, slowly watching her little body take over. Her bloodwork has been coming back with satisfactory results, and as you can see in this photo, she's thrilled whenever she gets a chance to stand and walk around a bit with her human friends! Even after all this pit bull has gone through, her puppy tail is wagging fast and furious, without a growl, no sign of aggression....even when she was strong enough to know how vulnerable she was, all she wanted to do was love us!!! She may be going into her foster home tomorrow....fingers crossed! If you don't know who Metro is, read her story at https://www.yourspca.org/starved-dog-found-outside-veterinary-clinic-11-30-12 . Thanks, everyone, for the donations, the prayers, the words and thoughts of encouragement - YOU made this possible. By the way, it has been brought to our attention that PETA is now offering a $5000 reward for information leading to an arrest in this investigation. All the details can be found at http://www.peta.org/mediacenter/news-releases/PETA-Offers--5-000-Reward-for-Help-in-Nabbing-Buffalo-Dog-Abuser.aspx
And as of December 5, 2012...
Metro our little hero is going to her foster home tonight! Looking quite debonair in her pretty pink polka dotted coat, Metro went home with SPCA foster care volunteer Ronnie and her family! She weighs 10.3 pounds and her tail never stops wagging! Before Ronnie took her home, Metro was walking around the SPCA administrative offices and stopping occasionally to get a cuddle and a kiss from employees. Thank you to everyone who has kept up with her story on Facebook, sent messages of hope, and prayed for this little girl! She can thank ALL OF YOU for everything!
