Lab Rescue received the below e-mail yesterday from the previous owner of Abe and George. I spoke to the foster home coordinator last evening, who had discussed everything at length with the president of the rescue.
DEAR LAB RESCUE MY NAME IS PAUL ******* AND I AM THE OWNER OF ABE AND GEORGE WHO PLACED THEM WITH YOUR AGENCY FOR ADOPTION. BECAUSE OF FAMILY PRESSURE , I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL AT THE TIME .MY (THIRD TIME IN N2 YEARS) THIS CREATED A HARDSHIP ON MY FAMILY TAKING CARE OF ABE AND GEORGE AS THEY LIVE IN *****COUNTY AND I LIVE IN ***** .IT WAS BECAUSE OF THIS HARDSHIP AND FAMILY PRESSURE THAT I REGRETFULLY PUT MY BOYS UP FOR ADOPTION. I IMMEDIATELY REGRETTED THIS DECISION .
I NOW AM OUT OF HOSPITAL AND GIVEN A CLEAR BILL OF HEALTH ALSO I NOW HAVE SEVERAL PEOPLE WILLING TO TAKE CARE OF ABE AND GEORGE IN CASE I WOULD BECOME SICK IN THE FUTURE .SINCE I HAVE BEEN HOME I MISS MY BOYS GREATLY .I VERY MUCH LOVE ABE AND GEORGE AND MY HOME IS NOT THE SAME WITHOUT THEM .MY WIFE AND I HAVE HAD ABE AND GEORGE SINCE THEY WERE 10 WEEKS OLD MY WIFE PASSED IN 2017 AND NOW MY BOYS ARE GONE .PLEASE FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO REUNITE ME WITH ABE AND GEORGE ,I LOVE THEM VERY MUCH AND MISS THEIR UNCONDITIONAL LOVE . I AM PRAYING THAT YOU REACH OUT TO ME AND I AM REUNITED WITH MY BOYSReturning Abe and George to their previous owner is being seriously considered. The foster home coordinator is going to reach out to the previous owner today and she will make the decision. I told her that I trusted her to make the best decision. But I am not sure how I feel about it. Of course my first concern is for Abe and George. They needed all their care updated when they first came into the rescue. Also to consider is that Abe is diabetic. Also diagnosed when he came into the rescue. Will the owner be able to afford and give him the care he needs?
What do you think?
