Deaths due to COVID-19 have reached more than five million all over the world. This pandemic has brought tons of pain and grief to a lot of families. And it has affected a lot of dogs as well. One of them is a lovable pooch in New Jersey named Che-Che.
Alone and homeless
Both of the dog’s owners succumbed to COVID-19, leaving her without any humans to care for her. Somebody brought the nine-year-old pooch to the Monmouth County SPCA, which left her scared and confused. She didn’t realize what happened and had no idea why her owners are gone.
The staff at the shelter felt sorry for the little dog. She was visibly upset and mostly kept to herself. They knew that she was sad and lonely. For most of her amazing life, she was surrounded by love and people she trust. Che-Che lost everything she had, and now she is in an unfamiliar situation.
They gave her a lot of attention and care, trying to offer her comfort in her most trying time. Thankfully, she started responding to them. She became more sociable and tried her best to interact with others.
The shelter staff wanted to find her a new family as soon as possible. They know that she would thrive better in a home environment. They frequently posted her pictures and shared her story.
After two weeks of staying in the shelter, Che-Che was adopted. A lot of applications came in, and they sorted every one of them. They wanted to make sure that the sweet dog goes to the perfect home for her. And when they did, all of them were overjoyed.
They were so happy for the orphaned dog that when she went home with her new mom, all of the staff members went out of their facility to bid her goodbye. They clapped and cheered as she went out. Some even shed tears of joy.
