Imagine your dog taking off one day, and not being able to find her. Years go by. You assume you’ll never see her again. You wonder what became of your lost dog. Then you get a phone call that she’s been found – almost four years later, four states away.
That’s just what happened to Kelly Booker of Denver, Colorado, who learned that Lilly had been taken in by Almost Home Foundation (AHF) – a rescue organization based in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.
On July 4, 2011 Lilly was either stolen or bolted from her home in fear of the fireworks. No one knows the details of Lilly’s missing years, or how she ended up so far from home. There are plenty of grateful hearts, though, that she’s not only been rescued from the streets, but also taken care of by AHF. Lilly came in severely matted and with a horrible ear infection.
Thank dog Lilly was microchipped – because of that, she is able to go back to her home. There’s no way her family would ever learn of her being found otherwise. You can contribute to her GoFundMe account to help pay for her trip.
A big shout-out to both Almost Home Foundation, and the wonderful foster home taking care of this girl. Check out WGN TV’s interview with AHF President, Chuck Hanson:
Here’s wishing a safe and speedy return home for Lilly!
