A rescuer entered a high-kill shelter two days before Christmas and immediately connected with a dog that was only hours away from being euthanized. Stanley was suffering from a severe case of mange. This is a touching rescue story of a “single dog” who brought people together to perform a Christmas miracle.
This is a heartwarming videotape of a dog’s salvation. It demonstrates how “just one canine” encouraged people to join forces to create a Christmas phenomenon. A deliverer entered a high-kill enclosure two days before Christmas and connected with a dog that was only hours away from being euthanized.
His name is Stanley and he’d a severe case of mange. It was so bad he could slightly open his eyes. The deliverer could not get the dog out of her mind, and decided to see what she can do to change the life of this canine.
Stanley was filmed in the Sanctuary in Los Angeles by Cathy Stanley of Camp Cocker Rescue. Cathy ended up dragging Stanley away because she had no idea where he was headed. “I pulled him out and started him on his medical recuperation,” she explained. I also completed a thorough interpretation of the’Just One Canine’ DVD and began frantically emailing it around, pleading with people to assist me in finding a decent solution.”
Stanley’s videotape and plea went viral, and Dave Schofield of Respect-A-Bull, a foster-based dog Terrier deliverance on Vancouver Island, Canada, entered a dispatch with Stanley’s tale on Christmas Day. He and his wife, Jo-Ann, had watched the footage and felt compelled to assist.
On Christmas Day, Dave called Cathy and offered to take Stanley away. Many people offered to transport Stanley to Port Alberni, British Columbia, and place him in foster care!
After seeing the “Just one canine” videotape, the group had a lot of people interested in supporting Stanley. However, Stanley was eventually endorsed by a couple who had never viewed the videotape.
Josh and Teresa Caufield endorsed Stanley after being won over by his upbeat and cheerful demeanor.
Stanley is now enjoying life and is adored by his new family, with his stint on death row a distant memory. Since Stanley’s misfortune, Camp Cocker and Respect-A-Bull have continued to collaborate in order to save dogs like Stanley.
