Fourth Save of Christmas: Burly


Burly arrived at the CASPCA as a stray in poor condition in September of 2016.  He was malnourished and very underweight; he had an abnormal gait due to suspected trauma, a sparse coat and scabs on his front legs.  Burly was anxious in the shelter environment and continued to lose weight.  He was neutered and put on a feeding plan to gain weight and soon made available for adoption. Over the course of the next few months, Burly spent time in a couple of foster homes, was adopted once and returned.


In early April, everything changed for sweet Burly when a new family adopted him into their hearts and home.  After Meghan and Shawn adopted Burly from the CASPCA, they knew that the CASPCA was the only shelter from where they would adopt their pets. Everyone they interacted with was friendly, helpful, and they saw just how loved the animals are at the CASPCA.

Several months passed and they decided it was time for Burly to have a playmate. They returned to the CASPCA to find Burly a new friend. While looking at the adoptable dogs, a volunteer suggested Brewster (now known as Joe) as he was an outgoing dog who loved to play. When Burly and Joe met, they instantly showed affection for one another.  They were immediate friends and Brewster (Joe) went home with Meghan, Shawn and Burly that day!

“Burly and Joe play together all day. They wrestle, play tug and chase each other throughout the house.

One of their favorite things to do is run together at the park, then come home and nap together on the couch.

We couldn’t imagine a better match!”

This holiday season, please think of the thousands of animals we have saved

and the thousands more we have yet to save.
