Farm to Family – Pepper

Pepper was rescued by Brookline after spending 7 years on a farm. The day she was rescued she was covered in cow stink, and physically and emotionally drained. Brookline placed her in a caring foster home. She was examined by a vet, vaccinated and eventually spayed.

While in foster care, Pepper learned what it was like to be a real dog. Some of her favorite activities were playing fetch, running free with the resident dogs, napping in the sun with her foster fur sister, and taking long walks in the Wissahickon. Pepper was recently adopted into a loving family and she is thriving. Pepper is one of the lucky ones.

Meg and John Place followed Pepper’s online blog and applied to adopt her. Meg summed up Pepper’s transition to her new life saying, “She loves long walks, the comforts of a warm bed, and she adores our grandkids. Puppy mill moms just need time and patience, and they need to know they are safe.”

Over the course of our Farm-to-Family Campaign, Brookline will be sharing many more success stories of our farm girl rescues. But there are so many dogs that still need our help. Your monthly donation of just $10.00 will help us rescue, foster and adopt even more dogs into loving, forever homes.

Thank you.
