“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” – Helen Keller
Odin was a stray. Young and homeless, he came to the APA through our transfer program. As a result of this network, which includes over 40 rescue partners and countless volunteers, the APA helps over 1,500 homeless pets every year get a second (and sometimes a third or fourth) chance at adoption. Each pet has their own story, but they all have one thing in common — each is looking for hope.
When Odin arrived, his sweet disposition made him beyond lovable. The APA staff showered him with attention and he quickly became a staff favorite. In addition to needing love, this sweet puppy also needed surgery for an existing injury to his eye. Thanks to the APA’s Heads to Tails Hope Fund, Odin got the medical care he needed. While his left eye ended up needing to be removed, he is now pain free and happy.
While recovering from surgery, Odin spent time in a foster home. His foster family fell in love and Odin found his forever home! He’s adjusted well to seeing with only one eye. Despite a likely rough start to life, Odin and his family have many happy memories ahead!
