We hate ending the week with sad news so we’d like to call this a celebration of our 2013 Alumnus Henry’s life. From his loving Mom Mary: “Our beautiful, sweet Henry passed over the Rainbow Bridge today to join our other boys, Max and Ike. He entered our home and our hearts from rescue on Nov 24, 2013 and left us with broken hearts far too soon. He bravely fought through many rounds of chemo for lymphoma and never once lost his warm snuggle or wagging tail. While he came to us with a less than happy past, he spent every day with us enjoying and giving love. He is already greatly missed and will always be greatly loved. 🐾💔😥🙏🌈” Henry’s life in rescue started when our volunteer David and his daughter pulled him from Bay County Animal Control in Panama City, FL. He had a winding road through rescue, being fostered by our experienced Florida volunteer Beth, our Founder Beth Cochran and finally our TN volunteer Cat. His road led him to the exact spot he needed to be…with Mary and her family. Thank you to everyone who made Henry’s life happy, especially his Mom Mary. Run free sweet Henry – you were loved to the very end and beyond.
Our sweet Alumna Daisy, originally from NC and adopted in SC, passed away peacefully this morning. Daisy was 12 when she was surrendered to SEGSP at the end of 2018. She was adopted by our volunteer Shelby and spent her last 5 months safe, loved and very happy. From Shelby to her Daisy: “For the short time you were with JP and I, we hope you were happy. So glad SEGSP Rescue brought you to me, fly high pretty. Gunner and Shankers will take care of you. Run free my Daisy Lou Who…our hearts will never be the same.” Thank you Shelby and JP for loving Daisy – our hearts go out to you.
With heavy hearts we say farewell to our 2011 Alumna Polly. She was fostered by Krista, then our founder Beth Cochran for heartworm treatment, then Tiffany. They all called her Polly Prissy Pants because she was so dainty. Her parents Warren and Eunice traveled to Atlanta to meet Polly on June 18th, 2011 and fell in love. Her Mom said Polly was a sweet, kind soul without a mean bone in her body - she loved everyone. Polly had an intense fear of thunder, lightning and heavy rain and the only thing that consoled her was her family’s love. Therefore they never left her alone when it rained. Eunice and Warren dedicated their life to making her feel happy and loved and we’re sure Polly had the same dedication and love for them. We know they are devastated by her passing and we wish we could take their pain away. She will be missed greatly.
