This is the story of Petey and Berry, two homeless dogs who are looking for a Christmas miracle: a home together for the holidays.
Several months ago, Magic's Mission pulled a sweet black and tan Catahoula mix named Petey from Horry County, South Carolina. We treated his heartworm and placed him in a foster home with one of our wonderful fosters. Unfortunately, the foster was not a good fit for Petey, and after one more failed foster and then vet boarding, we struggled to figure out what exactly he needed to become the happy, well-adjusted dog we knew he could be.
We tried once more, and placed him in yet another foster home with a female foster dog named Berry. Berry and Petey quickly became inseparable. Finally, after all the months of bouncing around, Petey was happy for the first time! They did everything together; it was clear that Berry was the what Petey needed to thrive in foster.
All was well until Berry and Petey escaped their foster's yard one night and were picked up by animal control. Unfortunately this incident turned Petey's world upside down yet again. Both he and Berry are now under threat where they are staying and need to leave right away.
This is where YOU CAN HELP!
We are URGENTLY looking for a foster home that will take in both Petey and Berry until they are able to be adopted. We can't bear to separate them- Berry is Petey's whole world. With no foster currently available, both Petey and Berry will have to go to boarding, which is no place for a dog this time of year. Fosters will be considered all along the east coast, from Georgia up through New York state, where MMBHR is based.
Long-term boarding is very expensive, and with several present medical cases, our funds are draining fast. We are forced to close intake while we focus our existing funds on treating and adopting out the dogs presently in our care. Finding a foster home for one dog is hard, and for two bonded dogs it is exponentially harder. Please consider donating to the cost of both Petey and Berry's boarding expenses while we work hard to find them a foster home. It would be a miracle if they found one for Christmas!
Petey: Male, neutered, black & tan Catahoula mix, good with other dogs, no cats
Berry: Female, spayed, black Lab/Staffy mix, good with other dogs, no cats
