12 hours ago the Austin Animal Center posted a desperate plea to find the owners of this senior Catahoula mix, who was blind. With more than 2600 shares, and so many offering their homes as a temporary residence, it’s our pleasure to report that this dog’s owners have been found!!
There are many stories of survival and happy reunions, and we hope to hear so many more.
One such happy tale is that of 84 year old Lena Givens and her poodle Tinkerbell. Givens was unable to get home to retrieve her Tinkerbell. She had left crated at home while she attended the Rockets game. When she was finally able return to her neighborhood, she found her street flooded and, she feared the worst as her little dog had been alone for 12 hours.
Brian Gardner, her grandson, got creative. He borrowed a friend’s boat, and paddled in to save her! Tinkerbell was equally crafty and somehow managed to escape her crate. According to an elated and ever so grateful Givens she was found floating on a piece of furniture of what was once the living room.
Such happy endings are the rainbow that’s come out after this devastating storm.
