The CUPA shelter focuses on providing medical care for homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. Care of abandoned animals and victims of abuse or cruelty are also high on our activity list.
On February 23, 2012, we picked up a beautiful Cocker Spaniel that had seemingly been lost or abandoned, wondering alone on the streets of Cox Town. The black and white dog was treated for skin infection and acute malnourishment. During the course of her stay at the shelter, she came to be known as Spotty, inspired by her spotted Dalmatian design. She was soon back in the pink of health and put up for adoption. It wasn’t long before Spotty was spotted by a visitor who came with his two young daughters – who simultaneously agreed that Spotty was going home with them! We at CUPA were delighted, as we always are when a story has a happy ending.
Sadly, less than two weeks later, Spotty was back at the shelter for skin related treatment. Several days and several calls later, it slowly dawned upon us that Spotty had just been abandoned for the second time. Beautiful and perfectly healthy Spotty recently found a new home, again.
We at CUPA take adoptions very seriously, and always go an extra mile to ensure that our animals find loving owners.
Do talk to us to know the effort involved in caring for an animal before adopting. Animals are capable of sensing what’s happening and disorientation can leave them scarred. Remember, bringing home a pet is a permanent commitment and can also be expensive, but the abundant joy they bring makes it worth it. Come to CUPA and experience it for yourself today!
