Our microchip hunter case of the sweet Pitbull that wound up at Chicago Animal Care and Control three months ago? (story below)
Azul went from an hour away from euthanasia six weeks ago, to his family that loves him!
HE IS HOME, thanks to so many along the way!
Azul had an extremely bad case of Sarcoptic Mange, and was contagious to humans. He was being treated for a month and a half at Countryside Vet, thanks to Heather Otat who took him into the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program - CRISP last minute and arranged for his long term boarding and treatment. Thank you Susan Taney for reaching out to CRISP one last time when no rescues were taking him in, and to Kelley Gandurski from CACC for letting everyone know his urgency to get pulled! Azul's family loves him so much, and couldn't wait for him to be home with them. He has been in the family since he was a puppy and it was breaking their hearts that they couldn't help! It broke my heart too!
David, Azul's dad came to visit him at the vet often. What a fabulous man, and amazing family - we couldn't be happier with how things turned out for that boy. His daughter Marisol kept me updated on Azul, and told me how grateful and excited they were watching him getting well. She told me he had such great care with medications and daily baths. He is just adorable, and per the Vet, "the staff fell in love with him."
Thank you CRISP and Countryside Vet for helping Azul get healthy and feeling good, and thank you to David, Marisol and family for giving him the life he deserves. I look forward to hearing about Azul, and cannot wait to meet him!
