I have seen that where, when the home goes, the people cannot keep the pets.

Awww Lisa, I can't wait to see the after photos.  Wolf certainly looked in need of a makeover.

Sorry to hear about yet another foreclosure--I'm sure the government saw this coming or the banks and could have better prepared people.

How very sad.  How hard would it be fore folks to just take the animals to the pound?  Next thing it'll be kids too.

This is a heart breaker!  We'll be looking forward to a "WOLF" update!

Wolf is all the better for having met you!

The reality is he is loved emotionally ... neglected physically and financially! 

Some say remove him from his home!

Reality!  They love him ... even if they don't care for himin the manner that many think is "correct"!

Hello Lisa,

How sad that his owner's left him behind to fend for himself.....Anxious to see Wolf's after photos!  Thank you for helping him and coming to his rescue.

Lisa - It is terrible to see that people can just walk away from their pets so easily.

Many persons overlook this issue when dealing with foreclosures.  It is sinful!

Some of my clients called yesterday about a short sale we looked at about 4 weeks ago and they had two of the greatest little dogs. Well, they were now on Craigslist looking for a new family for them because the owner could no longer afford to keep them and the apartment they were moving in to didn't allow pets. (It really is sad)

Hi Lisa:

This is certainly a growing problem.

Poor baby... being left behind and in need of medical attention.
