Katniss Everdeen – Adopted

4/15/15 – I am delighted to report that Katniss Everdeen has found her forever home. This is a perfect match in so many ways. She has a new best friend named Zorah who is the same size and just as playful as ever. When Katniss came to us back in October, 2014; she had been abused on so many levels. Katniss has since gained over 30 pounds in a 6-month period. She was a skeleton; starved so badly she’d eaten a towel which had to be surgically removed. She could not stand or walk. Her body was in a fetal position, lifeless, and tossed on the curb to die. These are the most recent photos of her and she looks perfect.
Katniss was fostered by Carrie Krausmann, who literally developed her into the well rounded beautiful soul she is today. We covered her medical needs, but Carrie provided her with what was critical to meet her physical and psychological needs. Katniss had no spirit left and no will to live when she was found. Carrie restored that faith by teaching her how to trust, play, share, socialize, and most importantly how to be loved. It was a serious dedication that cannot be done by just anyone.
Carrie has a friend that recently put together a video which we shared on our Facebook page. A 4P1H supporter saw that video and, as it turns out, this is the person we have been searching for all along. Her name is Rochelle and she sent in an application for Katniss after the video went out. We set up a meet-and-greet and the minute they met I knew this was the perfect person. Katniss took to Rochelle instantly. They hit it off and it was the longest meet-and-greet I’d ever experienced, but it was worth every second. Rochelle is amazing in so many ways and she is the perfect fit. She has structure, experience, compassion, and love. She is exactly what we were looking for and I’m so happy!
There are so many things I would like to say, but the photos tell it all. Katniss is happy, healthy, and now in a solid environment with someone who is willing to give her the love she has always deserved. Someone who will accept Katinss on every level and treat her with kindness and be the constant in her life that she has longed for.
I only wish that I could contact the guardian angel that brought Katiness into us that night. It would mean the world to her to know that she saved this little girl’s life. She found Katniss dumped on the street where you would toss out your trash, and at the time, she was in a U-haul truck in the process of moving to another state. When she saw this lifeless body in a cage on the curb, she picked up the cage and transported her to the emergency vet. I cried when I saw the pain and fear in this dogs eyes. We both did.
Katniss is here for a reason…and I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.
