In honor of CAPE's 25 year anniversary join us in another walk down Memory Lane as we check in with Sadie, a dog who CAPE found a loving home for so many years ago...
Many years ago CAPE heard about a dog referred to as “the mac & cheese dog.” We learned that for five years this small black dog had been living under the bushes along a road median in Watsonville, CA. A kind-hearted woman took pity on the dog and started feeding her macaroni and cheese. Her husband would not allow the dog inside their house, so the “mac & cheese dog” did her best to survive outside alone.
At last she was brought to the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter then placed into a loving CAPE foster home. Today, many years later, Sadie lives with a wonderful family who dotes on her every need. They tell us, “Sadie made her way
into our home and hearts. She has blossomed into our ‘little gnome’ who gathers her blankets and tennis balls like a squirrel preparing for winter!”
It is clear that Sadie knows to cherish the people and things she once never had. Lucky, lucky ,sweet girl!
