The person who spotted Lauren Gaile in Loyola Grand Villas had only one request to PAWS when she saw the emaciated dog crawling on the streets: please come and have a vet put this dog to sleep to end her suffering.
PAWS had already explained to the caller that the quarantine kennels were full at that time and that it couldn't take in another animal. However, Lady Luck seemed to be smiling on this dog. On the day that Lauren was brought to the clinic, a quarantine dog finished his vaccination regimen and was moved into the dog runs - leaving a space free for Lauren Gaile!
The shelter vet took one look at Lauren at the clinic and said that the dog seemed to need just a chance to be able to recover from severe malnutrition and dehydration.
He was right. In just two months of medical care, behavioral rehabilitation, and lots of TLC from our staff and volunteers, Lauren has bounced back to health and has attracted the attention of many shelter visitors with her friendly disposition and her gentle translucent brown eyes.
A kind couple, Vic and Jackie Prudente has passed PAWS' adoption screening procedures and finally on January 29 2011, Lauren Gaile went home with her new loving family!
Everyday, PAWS rescues and rehabilitates dogs like Lauren Gaile until they are ready to be put up for adoption.
