Fifteen years is a long time for anything, but to be in a shelter without a home for that long is just too much and that is exactly what Chip had to do. From the tender age of seven-weeks-old up until the age of fifteen, Chip has been in a shelter. Luckily when one man with a big heart found out about this, he made it his mission to give him a home for the rest of his life.
A man called Jaco Rademeyer stepped forward and adopted Chip. When he saw the salt-and-peppered old guy, he knew he had to give him a forever home.
While Chip will have a happily ever after, we must not forget about the hundreds of dogs in his position. Also we must never forget the great work shelters such as the Save-a-Pet shelter in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, who gave Chip a chance at a better life.
Without shelters and without your help to keep them going, we wouldn’t have such inspirational stories like this.
