Pearl was rescued from the Trout Lake area in May of 2011. She was found by Al of Petsearchers Canada while he was actually looking for another lost pet in the area. It was pouring rain and Pearl was starving. She was hyperthyroid, and when she came to VOKRA she was sweet and valiantly wanting to live.
Pearl was adopted by Emma and had a lovely forever home. Pearl had a fireplace she dearly loved to sleep beside with her new adoptive brother. Almost one year later, a year of knowing what unconditional love and kindness was, Pearl passed peacefully with her adoptive mother, Emma by her side.
Pearl touched many lives while she was here. Al from PetSearchers Canada has shared some lovely words with us regarding Pearl:
“I remember the day Pearl came up to me looking for food; she ate the treats that I had given her like she had not eaten in a week. There was no way that I could leave her there, alone, especially after seeing her condition; very dehydrated and basically starving for food and love. I knew she was a special girl as soon as a met her and every time I held her in my arms she would just soak up the love. I knew she realized that she was now safe and would be cared for. So many mixed feelings now, so sad she has passed, however so glad she has experienced so much love and caring in the last year of her life. She was an older girl and what better way to pass lying beside a warm fireplace in the arms of Emma, feeling loved. I know Pearl is but one of so many that you have helped in this way but Pearl was special to me and from my heart I want to thank Marie, VOKRA and Emma for giving Pearl the opportunity to experience true love in her last year.
Beautiful Pearl, rest in peace!"
