“Hi! My name is Angel and I am now safely with GSRNC. Even more importantly, I am at home with my new mom, Nicole. I’m still a bit confused by how this happened. All I know is that I found myself all alone in a rural area south of San Jose, with nothing to eat, nowhere comfortable to sleep, and without my people. I really don’t know how I got there but I know I was scared. Luckily, a very nice man from Animal Control gave me a ride to the shelter.

Although the shelter was kind of scary and noisy, it was warm and they fed me well. I waited patiently for my people to come get me, but nobody came. Then one day a nice lady came by, took me out into the play yard, played all sorts of weird games with me, and declared that I could come live with her friends. I was really happy with that because at the shelter I came down with a cough, and my arthritis was really beginning to hurt. The nice lady came back, took me to see a gentle doctor who was very easy to like, and then took me home with her. My cough got better, and my elbows stopped hurting so much. I wonder if those strange hard little pieces of food she gave me every day had something to do with it!

A couple of days later, I took a long car ride to meet my new mom. She is really cool. She knows just what I need, and she lives with two other people who really love me. They are all young and it makes me feel young again just being around them!

When I look back at the past few months, I think that I have ended up in the best place possible. I loved my other family, but this is just the cat’s meow! (oops, did I just say that?)”
