We reserve a few special spaces at the Sanctuary for “Piper’s Pals.” This is what we lovingly call a pet that will eventually return home to its family.
Over the years, we have cared for a dog whose owner was going off to Harvard for her first year of Graduate School and had no place to leave Princi, her beloved companion dog. Coco’s family had to leave the country for a year and could not take their pet with them. Another Coco stayed with us when his Mom was going through six months of cancer treatment. House with a Heart also welcomed little Muffin, whose Dad was in the military and was being deployed to the Middle East for over a year. Moonpie stayed while his mom was recovering from a fall, breaking her arm and leg. We are happy to say she is doing well, and Moonpie is home.
