Mattie Has Been Adopted By Her Foster Mom
A Volunteer of ours seen the story about Mattie, a very sweet laid back two year old Catahoula Leopard dog who came into a shelter in Winnsboro, Louisiana with four of her little new born puppies. All were very sick and covered with mange. Some very nice Volunteers at the Shelter in Louisiana gave Mattie and her babies their full attention to try and save them and to find them a home before their time was up and they were all put to sleep. All were given several baths to get rid of the mange that covered them from head to toe and Volunteers at the Shelter also made sure they were provided the food & medical care they needed. All of the puppies were adopted quickly. Mattie however was at risk of being put to sleep as the Shelter Volunteers could not seem to find a home for her. So when our Volunteer contacted us and told us her story we said we would do our best to help Mattie. We put a "HOLD" on Mattie through Hooves & Paws Rescue of the Heartland and said we would take her, so she was not put to sleep. A Volunteer in LA who worked at the Shelter offered to help us and transported Mattie to St. Louis. From there a Volunteer from Nebraska offered to head to St. Louis and get Mattie for us. Mattie went into foster and she was adopted by her Foster Mom. We are very happy for Mattie as she has found a "Perfect Forever Home". Mattie is being trained at this time to assist & work with the elderly at Nursing Homes. We want to thank everyone who helped us save Mattie. She is truly an incredible girl and we are so thankful we were allowed to save her and give her a chance at a happy life.
