Rj and Linda in new homes
Last week, RJ and Linda got the opportunity of a lifetime, to travel to the UK to live with new families!
They began their journey here in Tenerife, but would soon be arriving in a new place ready to live new adventures. It was a complicated goodbye for staff and volunteers at the refuge, as they would miss them very much but are very happy to see them finally living the lives they deserve!
It was a long journey, but they finally arrived. Linda arrived with her new family that she had already met as volunteers at K9. RJ, was lucky enough to be homed with his sister Ruby, who was homed a year earlier. The reunion was amazing and we are sure they both remembered each other. Both Linda and RJ had an action packed first day exploring their new surroundings and finding the perfect place to unwind.
After a few days, we can see that they are both extremely happy. Linda got to play in the snow, something she had never encountered before but absolutely loved it! And RJ got to run around the hills of Wales with his sister Ruby. Their new families tell us they are both good as gold and are extremely happy and grateful to have them in their lives!
Its happy endings like these that motivate K9 to continue doing what they do!
