Joey, who was abandoned to the streets of Orange County, had lost all hope until one hair cut changed his life.
Joey was found wandering the streets of Orange County, California only three months ago. OC Animal Care picked him up. His hair had been heavily matted and dirty from neglect. He was found at a common dumping ground for dogs so likely he once had a home.
His disposition seemed almost feral having spent so much time without love and human contact. People just don’t look at dogs at the shelter that seem fearful, aggressive or “ugly.” The likelihood of adoption in his condition was slim to none.
OC Animal Care teamed up with Hollywood Rescue Grooming a 501(c)(3) to come out for one day to groom as many dogs as possible in hopes of getting them adopted.
After Joey was groomed, he was visibly relieved. He was finally free of his painful, matted fur and receiving attention that he had longed for – for what seemed like ages. His transformation was not just on the outside but reached within him as well.
That day, Hollywood Rescue Grooming cut, groomed, spruced and glammed up 56 dogs and since then all have found homes, including Joey.
Every dog deserves a second look, a second chance and a second home! Please share Joey’s story to inspire everyone to #adopt.
