Jennifer, an Adoption Counselor at The Animal Foundation, owns two adventurous dogs whom she brings along in her various outdoor activities. At that time, she never imagined herself adopting another furry to the family. It was only until her recent experience working as an Adoption Counselor at The Animal Foundation that she started fostering animals.
Around early June of 2018, she met a scared one-eyed puppy that was hiding under his bed at the shelter. Jennifer sat down in the kennel, the dog mellowed down and climbed onto her lap. Then it went up to her chest and started nuzzling into her neck. At that time, she suddenly realized that she wanted to keep the handicapped dog.
The dog’s name was Pup-I because of his condition. They found him seriously injured, and one of his eyes had to be removed. One day, she spoke with the veterinarian who removed Pup-I’s eye. She asked about the difference between working in a private clinic compared to an animal shelter.
Jennifer found out that after the surgery, they sent Pup-I to a foster home to recover. It made Jennifer grateful for the care given to the one-eyed pup and changed her point of view for the better. Jennifer fell in love with the dog and eventually adopted the one-eyed furry buddy.
Ever since she took Pup-I in, she has gone to adopting other animals such as kittens. Pup-I cared for these kittens as if they were also canine. Eventually, she got a new position as a Veterinary Assistant at the Animal Foundation and will be going back to school to work on her Veterinary Technician degree.
Not only did Pup-I added more color to her life, but he inspired Jennifer to give back more to animal rescue shelters. With such a purpose, she can ask nothing more but good health for her furry family.
