Many dogs are abused and neglected by horrible people all over the world. Some cultures even use dogs like livestock where they’re slaughtered for their meat. Thankfully, several animal rescue organizations are operating internationally to protect animals, such as dogs.
Four Paws International is one of them and it’s a global animal welfare charity that protects animals all over the world. It’s a huge organization and they have the resources to rescue abused and neglected dogs and other animals anywhere in the world. During their investigation in Cambodia, they came across a facility that slaughters dogs for their meat. Four Paws International managed to save countless dogs from the slaughterhouse and it was also when they came across a dog named Lavery.
Lavery was very timid around people and he kept his tail tucked between his legs. Lavery was always nervous and he didn’t trust anyone at all. Whenever his rescuers tried to pick him up, Lavery would shake uncontrollably out of fear.
Four Paws International was able to help close the slaughterhouse in Cambodia and ship Lavery back to the US where a partner rescue facility took in Lavery. That was when a couple named Christi and Andrew came in. Christi and Andrew love fostering rescue dogs in their spare time and they also have their very own rescue dog named Koda.
A volunteer at an animal shelter sent a photo of Lavery to Christi with the description that Lavery was very shy and that he would benefit from being with a loving foster family and a stable environment. Christi thought that her home would be the perfect foster home for Lavery since she thought Koda would be a great foster sister for Lavery.
Lavery was quite timid at first when he first met his foster parents. Lavery would keep his tail tucked between his legs and he would always shake when Christi or Andrew picked him up. However, it didn’t take long until Lavery finally realized that he’s safe. Lavery loved his foster sister, Koda, so much that he would often try to get her to play with him. Koda wasn’t really playful at first but she eventually opened up to Lavery and started doing zoomies with Lavery in the yard.
As days went by, Lavery’s tail started to get higher and he also started to wag his tail whenever he’s with Koda and with his foster parents. Lavery only wanted love and he got to experience it for the first time with Christi and her family. The day came when Lavery was finally ready to get adopted.
Christi and Andrew actively looked for families that would be perfect for Lavery. Eventually, they came across a couple named Ryan and Karen who also had a dog named Larry. Christi thought that Ryan, Karen, and Larry would be the family that they wanted for Lavery. After meeting the potential adopters, Christi was sure that Ryan and Karen’s family would be the perfect family that will provide a loving forever home for Lavery.
Lavery was finally adopted and he’s now living a great life with his new family and forever home. It’s amazing how Lavery came out of his shell despite all the things that he went through before he got rescues. Here’s a video telling Lavery’s rescue story and how he found his forever family.
