I know everyone has been waiting for an update on Pierre, the little Frenchie we brought over from Korea. We’re pleased to be able to share a note from Pierre’s new mom, Lucy.
Thanks to the combined efforts of Korean Animal Protection Society, Maya Shin of Pet Airline Korea (who was incredibly helpful – if Canadian shipping agents were as thorough as Maya, more of us would consider shipping dogs) and of ECFBR volunteers Michelle Williams and her sister, Yvette, Pierre has arrived safe and sound on Canadian soil.
I have been off line most of the day, because I seem to have angered the satellite internet Gods (again).
I got back on line about ten minutes ago, and thought “OK, I’d better go see how far we are from raising Pierre’s airfare, so I can decide how much groveling I have left to do”. And what do I see? We raised it. All of it. Since this morning.
Do you remember Pierre? He’s the homeless Korean French Bulldog who was left tied to a shelter gate, infested with heartworm and suffering in the heat.
We had a few people express interest in Pierre, but so far, no one has stepped up and said that they were willing to bring him over from Korea to adopt him. I knew that time was running out for Pierre – his foster parents are expatriates (as are almost all of the Animal Rescue Korea volunteers and foster homes), and they are leaving Korea in mid October. Sadly, they are unable to take Pierre with them, and with no other foster homes available, the only option will be to return him to the shelter he was originally rescued from.
