Happy Tails # 762
Cody and Gia came to HSTB this December with donations in tow! They used to be Betty Boop and Cody and were extremely emaciated when we took them in two years ago. One of our Gold-shirt volunteers fostered them back to health and they have found a wonderful forever family! Now they are so happy and healthy. The profile picture is them with their new family and donations, and the picture below is their reunion with their foster mom, Ornella. What a happy ending and great gift for the holidays to see them again. ~Ben Moehnert, HSTB Adoption Manager
