As any pet owner knows, there are times when we have to make the well-being of our cat or dog the number one priority in life.
And though no one ever wants to face giving up their pet, sometimes circumstances force us to put these beloved creatures up for adoption. In these cases, we will obviously do anything it takes to find them a good home — like this groomer who gave pets haircuts to help them get adopted.
And in the case of Kathleen Zuidema, she is not only trying to find her three pups a new, loving family, but she is determined to keep them together no matter what.
Kathleen — who lives in Friday Harbor, WA — has been battling terminal cancer for over a year. And while she continues to fight the disease through chemotherapy and other means, she has also been very concerned for the future of her incredible dogs.
Scroll through below to see the beautiful plea that Kathleen posted on Facebook. While saying goodbye to her pups will be one of the hardest things in the world, she knows that as a loving mother she must find them the best home possible.
While Kathleen has been bravely battling against cancer, she has also been deeply concerned about what will happen to her three amazing dogs — Autumn Moon, Moka Luka, and Finnegan — in the future.
Kathleen’s devotion to her dogs, especially in a time of great personal hardship, is absolutely amazing. Her story has proven an inspiration to animal lovers around the world.
