Astro may just be one dog, but his perseverance has given his rescuers something invaluable — hope.
“Seeing Astro today gives me strength to continue fighting for the victims of cruelty,” Adam Leath, southeast regional director of the ASPCA Field Investigations and Response team, which led the rescue, said in a statement. “My heart goes out to his new family, who gave him a second chance and have shown him what it’s like to be loved.”
The Feldmans couldn’t be more pleased with their new addition. “He has brought happiness and peace to our lives,” Feldman said. “It makes us feel really good that we could give this wonderful, sweet, shy guy a loving home and family.”
