We’ve just learned of another SEGSP alumnus’ death. Sam, who was pulled by SEGSP from an Alabama shelter in 2009, passed away July 2, 2019. Sam was fostered by our Alabama Coordinator Beth and was returned once to rescue, but found his true forever home with the Mack family in 2012. We don’t have much information about Sam or his past, however these photos speak volumes – he was loved.
Very sad news… our 2015 Alumnus Duke (formerly Titan) chose today to run to the rainbow bridge. His Mom said the day started out like every day with Duke playing with his siblings. After breakfast he became shaky and lethargic with cold head and feet, grey gums and could not walk. By the time they arrived at the ER Duke it was too late. Possible heart disease. His Mom is without words – everything just feels “off” now without him. From his Mom: “Duke came so far in strides of love and trust. He loved on his own terms and we will forever miss his grumpiness and sweetness. Thank you for saving him so we could have this past 4 years with him. July 4th would have been his 4th gotcha day! Our big beautiful Boy”
Please keep Duke and the Fedder family in your heart this week and celebrate his memory along with Independence Day. Being rescued was Duke’s Independence Day.
