November has been called ‘Senior-dog adoption month’ and in the spirit of celebrating our older dogs, we wanted to share our delight about Jambo and Matty, who were adopted in November after a long wait. Jumbo is an energetic bundle of joy who considered lovingly hurling himself at us, a friendly greeting!
After recovering from a severe laceration wound to his abdominal area, he was given a home by Devika Gamage. Matty was rescued near the Matara stretch of the Southern Expressway. She was emaciated and suffering from skin rash. Her back legs were paralysed and she was nervous around people. It took several months for her to gain confidence and stand tall. Today, she has a loving home with Anil Wickramasuriya and his family.
