Nelson is a Dane that found himself at Orange County Animal Care and Control for most of his young life! After 2 failed placements while he was at the shelter, he found himself as a “Rescue Only” dog AND on the euthanasia list! No rescues were stepping up for him and his time was running out, soooo, we stepped up! With the help of one of the AMAZING volunteers at the shelter who had spent lots of time with Nelson and just couldn’t bear the thought of him being killed, she stepped up to foster-to-adopt him… so Nelson was saved!!!!
Nelson has spent the majority of his 2 short years of life in a shelter, we knew he would take work, but with a loving and committed foster and with the help of one of ODAAT’s regular trainers, Neslon is making progress in leaps and bounds!!!! He caught on to place work quickly, is learning his commands and is enjoying his freedom and the good life. As you can see, he is even being as gentle as can be with a kitten that is only weeks old!
Nelson is definitely a work in progress and we have NO DOUBT he will get there! He has the right support AND the love of a momma that will do whatever it takes to make his life te BEST one possible! HAPPY TAILS, Nelson!!!! We are so happy that we can FINALLY say that you will NEVER see the inside of a shelter again!
