Saturday, August 12th, was a wonderful day at BrightSide: Not only were we able to find forever homes for 39 cats and dogs, but were also able to make a very special match. We received a call from a mom who was looking for a possible companion dog for her son with special needs. The boy’s previous companion, a Golden Retriever, had died recently, leaving the boy sad and withdrawn. It just so happened that the week before a wonderful family had surrendered a 3-month-old Golden Retriever. Instead of selling the puppy, they entrusted BrightSide to find her a good forever home. It was as though the stars were perfectly aligned and the match was made. The adoption was made even more amazing because the fee was covered by an anonymous supporter. Needless to say, more than a few tears were shed all around. Best of luck, Luna Moon, to you and your new best friend.
