Layla and Oliver were on the put to sleep list at the OC shelter but they had a huge group of people working FaceBook, emails and phone calls trying to save them. They raised $1300 in pledges to pay for their medical bills and would not give up. They campaigned relentlessly up until the very last minute when we had an opening come up in a foster home and we jumped in and agreed to take them.
We could not wait to meet them. We had arranged a transport for them from OC to Santa Barbara. They popped out of the car. They were dirty, matted and oh, so stinky but they had big smiles on their faces! They were beautiful after a grooming and bath. After the vet visit we were very grateful for the donation pledges. Layla needed to be spayed, a dental and a growth removed from her backside Oliver needed a dental, neuter and a cherry surgery. Their bills were twice the pledged donations but we are still very glad we agreed to take these two sweethearts.
The good news is that Oliver has already found himself a wonderful home with a gentleman in Bakersfield. Way to go Oliver! Layla is waiting patiently in her foster home in Canoga Park for us to make her a perfect match too.
