Snoop Dog

Snoop DogDear APRA – How did Snoop Dog spend his summer vacation?   Hangin’ with his homies, of course.

We adopted Snoop Dog from APRA in February 2013.  His main, Niblet (not that Nib gave Snoop a choice with that), came to us from APRA in December of 2012.  Pip, in the background, simply arrived at our home a couple of months before we adopted Nib. There’s a story there too, but this one is Snoop’s.

When we first met Snoop, he was one very depressed little boy.   Snoop had recently returned to the center from a foster home where, as we were told by the APRA staff, he had been much happier.  It was a stretch to imagine that Snoop might be happy with us, when he seemed to want nothing more than to be released from our attempts to get acquainted.

From what we understand of Snoop’s history, he had bounced around quite a bit in his life, with at least two of his previous caregivers experiencing circumstances that meant they could no longer provide that care.  We are so grateful to these former guardians, as well as the good Samaritans and fosters along the way . . .  and to APRA.   Snoop was loved and cared for long before we knew of him.  It’s a reminder of our connection to those we may never know.  Each in their own way, numerous others have seen to it that Snoop would have yet another chance . . . . a chance for us now to love and care for this joyful little being that they knew Snoop Dog to be all along.  He’s happy, healthy and home.

Thank you ~ Phil and Lisa

    What a surprise meeting you all today on a service call to your home.
    He couldn’t have gone to a better family. Thanks for letting me sit on the kitchen floor while doing a meet and greet.
    Your Cat really surprised me :)

    Ben, you’re the big reason we got to know APRA and ended up adopting 3 pets from the rescue. You are a star.
