As of this afternoon (6/20), Thief has been released by the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility, back to his owner who was located earlier in the day. The owner is in dire straits himself, but aware that the CalWEAR family is here to help Thief should the time come that he can no longer care for him, himself.
Thank you for caring. Thank you for your support. Thank you for your positive outlook. Thank you for not judging. Thank you for offering more than just a day. Thank you for being there.
We love you. – Team CalWEAR
June 19, 2018:
MEET THIEF. Once upon a time, Thief had a home. We know because he’s microchipped. Unfortunately, that family isn’t responding to phone calls or emails from the shelter.
At 10 years of age, Thief has ataxia of the rear legs. He responds well mentally, WAGS HIS TAIL and seems VERY HAPPY, but his hindquarters aren’t working. He also has callouses and sores on his elbows, leading us to think he’s been an outdoor guy for awhile now. He’s exiting his kennel with towel assist because he can’t stand on his own. The veterinarian on staff at the Chula Vista shelter recommends putting him to sleep on Friday, June 22nd, his due out date.
SO HERE’S THE DEAL:
Wouldn’t it be nice to give Thief one last afternoon of freedom and love? Here’s what we need:
1. A volunteer to exit Thief for the afternoon
2. A road trip to the local McDonalds for cheeseburgers and chicken McNuggets
3. Another trip to the park for snuggles
4. A return visit to the shelter
5. Hold his paws and be there with him
***ALL EXPENSES FOR THIEF’S AFTERNOON WILL BE COVERED BY CALWEAR***
We know this isn’t the typical kind of volunteer work, but Thief needs us. Are you available?
