Rescue group Slaughterhouse Survivors rescued Pearl, a tripod French bulldog, from a meat truck in China. When the rescuers got her, they were petrified by the dog’s appearance. Her skin was very bad, and the vets who checked her weren’t too optimistic.
To everyone’s surprise, Pearl recovered pretty quickly. She was young but she proved that she’s one resilient girl. And in about two months, she was ready to fly to her forever home.
Slaughterhouse Survivors does not process adoptions directly. Their goal is to get every rescued animal out of the country. Hence, they work with several rescue organizations from around the world to get these animals into their new homes.
Road Dogs Rescue in California helped Pearl find her happy ending. Leah, one of the group’s fosters, picked the dog up from the airport. She knew right away that it won’t take long for this Frenchie to find her forever home.
Pearl is a very relaxed dog. She’s easy-going and she got along with Leah’s dogs, Gus, Ella, and Corinthos. It was a very smooth transition, Leah said.
Pretty soon, adoption applications came in for Pearl. Cheryl, also a volunteer of Road Dogs Rescue helped Leah in the process. And they both agreed that Ashley was Pearl’s perfect match.
Ashley is a vet in New York City. She lives with her dog Janet and had no plans of adopting another one at that time. But when she saw Pearl’s pictures, she just couldn’t say no.
Cheryl and her husband Neil volunteered to drive Pearl to Allentown, Pennsylvania to get the dog a little closer to her new home. Ashley, meanwhile, agreed to pick up the pup from the couple’s home. She was a little nervous at first but all her worries disappeared the moment she had Pearl in her arms.
Pearl is everything I imagined, even more, Ashley said. She’s fantastic and she’s found her forever home, she added.
