Tazo is a pup living in New York City that had been paralyzed from the waist down after seriously injuring his back. When he first sustained the injury, his owners had no idea on how to treat or care for him. This neglect of the injury led to Tazo becoming paralyzed. His owners were no longer able to care for him so they brought him to their local shelter, Animal Haven, and gave him up. Touched by this poor pup’s story, Bark & Co and Natural Balance decided to team up and give Tazo the best day of his life!
The first activity for Tazo’s special day was hydrotherapy at Water4Dogs. After Tazo got his dose of physical therapy on land, it was time for him to hit the pool and let loose for a little bit. With rehab over, it was time for snacks with some friends. Two other shelter dogs accompanied Tazo to the local Shake Shack for an afternoon treat. After the treats were all demolished, it was back to Animal Haven for the next surprise. Once Tazo arrived back at Animal Haven, he was greeted with lots of toys, lots of treats, and lots of fun! After Tazo had some time to play, the surprises kept on coming. He was gifted with a custom 3-D printed wheelchair so that he could get around better!
As Tazo’s Best Day Ever came to a close, Tazo was gifted one last surprise… a forever home! Tazo’s day concluded with him meeting his new mom, Eileen Merrigan, and finally getting the loving home that he had been craving.
