#GivingTuesday Story: Zoey

Zoey is a beautiful 4-year-old German Shepherd who was dumped after producing several litters of pups. She was found wandering the streets of Sonoma in September and was found to have injuries from being hit by a car. She was under-weight and extremely fearful of people but has now gained 10 pounds and her injuries have healed well. Our Critical Care Fund helped her with her medical needs, which is why this fund is such an important area of support at #PetsLifeline. Please consider supporting our Critical Care Fund this Giving Tuesday on December 1, 2015 - link in our bio.

Zoey has made great progress at Pets Lifeline working with our staff to overcome her fear and shyness. She is still learning to trust both people and other dogs and is quiet and timid in person but once she establishes trust and with patience, she is a loving girl giving kisses and enjoying affection. Finding Zoey a forever home will help her build a long-term trust relationship with her person and much of her fear will disappear. She will need to be placed with an experienced German Shepherd owner who understands the needs of the breed and of Zoey's special needs for patience and trust building.

Please consider donating to Pets Lifeline this #GivingTuesday on December 1, 2015. Your donations will give these animals a second chance at life in new forever homes. Pets Lifeline is the only safety net for animals in need in all of Sonoma Valley. And, we receive no funding from the city or county. Help us care for the most vulnerable members of our community by giving generously to our #GivingTuesday Critical Care Campaign!
