Remember Gem, the pupster we told you about earlier this week?
The poor little puppeh was found in December at a San Francisco recycling center, moments from certain doom. Gem was adopted today at San Francisco Animal Care and Control by Patricia A., one of the center’s employees! There was a lottery from 200 applications to determine who would be allowed to take Gem, and her application was chosen. See the new video here.
Gem says “Thank you all for showing me so much love and adoration and for all the wonderful applications for my adoption. I have found a wonderful home and new family.”
“My hope is that all the fantastic folks who wanted to adopt me will take their love for me and go to one of the many shelters and rescues near them and adopt another totally deserving animal in need.”
“If everyone that wanted me would adopt another shelter animal it would make such a great difference in the world.”
“Please spread the love and find another animal needing a forever home…”
“..and thanks again for all the attention.”
“I just hope it helps folks learn more about shelter animals..”
“.. and how great we can be!-XXOO, Gem.”
