An abandoned pit bull was saved from a kill shelter by a California charity called Insight Animal Rescue. Like with all rescues, the plan was to find Cher a family and a forever home. They tried four different homes and none of them worked out for various reasons. It turns out that the role Cher was meant for was right there at the animal rescue.
Cher was a natural at helping the other rescues settle in and building up their confidence before sending them off to forever homes. This was meant to be all along.
Cher just loves being the foster mom.
‘I had no idea she would respond the way she did. Maybe it’s because she too is a rescue and she feels that connection or maybe it’s her way of being the mom she never was,’ Anelli said.
‘Either way, I know the pups we rescue appreciate a loving lick and understanding paw pat on the head when they first get out of the shelter.’
What a beautiful story. I guess fate had other plans for Cher, and I think it worked out well.
