Roxbury Returns Home!
When Brenda lost her beloved 16 year old dog last January, she turned to the Allen County SPCA for help finding a new family member.
She immediately fell for Roxbury. The dog not only made an instant connection with Brenda, but also with her son, who has autism. All of us expected a lifetime off happiness for them.
Roxy was the perfect addition to the family!
But this summer, tragedy struck. A house fire left Brenda and her son temporarily homeless, with no place for Roxy. The family was devastated and terrified to lose their four-legged companion.
Thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities and our Compassion Foster Program, Roxy was able to stay with us here at the Allen County SPCA while her mom worked to rebuild her life.
In the meantime, our dedicated staff and volunteers gave Roxy all the love a pup could ask for! Brenda and her son visited regularly, always looking forward to the day they could bring Roxy home again.
With their home rebuilt, all they needed was a fence for Roxy. So a couple of weeks ago, several of our staff and volunteers took a Sunday to build the fence for her!
And just like that, this loving family was together again!
