Message for "Name a Dog" donation:
For Mother’s Day this year, I’m donating in honor of my mom, Lucy. She was the best mother to me and our two boxers, Patch and Henry. My dad and I miss her very much, but we hope that her namesake boxer will bring others as much love and light as she brought to our lives.

7/01/20 – Memorial
We tried to save you, sweet Lucy – but the years of neglect took its toll and we had to let you go. We were honored to give you the best two weeks and we wish it could have been more. In the end, you were loved and cherished by your foster family and the volunteers that were honored to be in your presence. You did not die alone and abandoned. Lucy, you took a piece of our hearts with you. Fly high sweet girl, until we meet again.

Lucy was found as a stray and turned into the shelter by the woman who had been feeding her. She is a very sweet girl and did great on her dog test. Lucy appears to have led a rough life. She has severe gum overgrowth and is very thin. Lucy will be spayed and get a dental once she has gained enough weight. For now, she is enjoying some rest and good meals at her new foster home. Lucy is in foster with children and is doing great with them. We will update Lucy’s page as we learn more about her.
