The Adventures Of Chucky
In the hustle and bustle of moving to the new shelter in March 2017, several of the dogs managed to slip out of the gate of the old shelter. Sejla was immediately called back from settling some of the dogs into their new home. As soon as they heard her calling them, most of the dogs returned. Black Labrador mix, Chucky, however could not be found. Sejla, Dino and Fata searched for him all that night and continued looking in the surrounding area for the next few days, posting his picture and description on social media and contacting other rescue organisations.
As the rest of the dogs in groups departed for the new shelter, nobody could contemplate leaving until Chucky was with them….. and so the search continued. Eventually, he was found having been taken in by another rescuer. It seemed that he had been attacked by another dog or dogs and he was in need of some veterinary care. The sense of relief was palpable, as many of the supporters were waiting anxiously for news. After being taken for emergency veterinary treatment, Chucky was able to join his friends at the newly-named SOS Sunshine Paws Sanctuary.
