Sidewalk Specials’ motto is: “You can’t save them all… well we’re going to bloody well try!” A motto that truly encompasses all the effort they make to save as many dogs as possible.
This story began with Scruff. She was found, hidden, in a taped up box. You can’t even imagine what it was like to find her! Hearing whimpers from a cardboard box cruelly tucked away. The heroes at Sidewalk Specials rushed Scruff to the veterinarian to have her assessed. It would be a long road to recovery but what helped matters drastically was that she found a new home very quickly!
Scruff found a new home with human parents that loved her so much and other doggy siblings she could play with. She spent an entire glorious month living a beautiful life. But fate had more plans for Scruff. Turned out she had distemper and within a month, she passed away.
Scruff died in her mama’s arms, peacefully. After having a perfect month, filled with happiness, love and all the things a dog could ever want!
Sidewalk Specials has another motto: If they lose one of their rescues, they honor their memory by saving another. In Scruff’s honor, they were able to save Scout, a dog that was being euthanized because she had cancer and no one wanted her.
See how a tragic story can, in spite of sadness, result in a happy ending. A story about a dog who becomes an angel and saves another life by crossing the Rainbow Bridge. R.I.P. Scruff!
