This life is full of chances, and for a little puppy, it came at just the right moment. Impounded dogs pile up quickly in the city pound, and its ordinance declared euthanasia for unclaimed dogs after a certain number of days.
Nothing was out of the ordinary on that hot February Tuesday when Sha-Sha Escabusa saw a friend’s post on Facebook. Further inquiry and coordination pointed to crucial people of the Naga City Adopt A Dog Group, and the rescue were underway.
Sha-Sha named the puppy Sky, following her daughter’s wishes. The puppy appeared shaken and traumatized, whimpering and shying away from people and jumped at the slightest noise.
Fortunately, the pup soon realized that he’s in safe hands. He started burrowing into the blankets and appeared to enjoy the comforts it brought. A quick anti-rabies vaccine, a little growling at another pup who refused to share food, and some paperwork later, Sky was on his way to his furever home.
The first night was tough, but Sky pulled through. At barely three months old, he patiently waited and ate and drank pretty much everything given to him. Bathed, removed of fleas, and de-ticked, Sky and Sha-Sha’s daughter immediately formed a bond, and the pair went on walking trips with a lot of cuddling.

It’s incredible to witness a group of people who come together for a cause. A member of the rescue group allowed his farm to be the temporary dog rescue home.
Another member bought leashes, yet another rented a vehicle to transport the dogs, and many contributed their time and effort. Some also gave financial help for the upkeep and care of the rescues.
It’s because of these that Sky got another chance to live his life fully in his furever home. Cheers to kind-hearted people who champion causes like this!
