Abner had the most amazing rescue journey ever. When we learned that he’d shown up as a stray at a full shelter in Bakersfield, we devised an elaborate plan to bring him to safety in northern California. Four of our volunteers coordinated to spring him from the shelter, drive him to Fresno, then to Chowchilla, then to Manteca, then to his temporary foster home in Fiddletown. After a much-needed bath and some basic vet attention, Abner emerged as a lover boy and a character. He loved to kiss and snuggle; he snored blissfully; he chased cats, and tried to engage a longhorn bull in dog play. He inhaled his meals, but also had a fondness for opening bags of any sort to see what might be inside. In just a few short weeks, Abner was snapped up by one of our own transport volunteers and prior adopters, and now lives in a cozy home with a loving family and a GSP sister, BeBe. Thanks to all who helped save Abner. It takes a village!  Thank you to Mara for fostering Abner!
