Good Vibes Spotlight: Animal Welfare Society Of South Florida (Video)

Today we are bringing to your attention a wonderfully wholesome and uplifting story. No one expected a global pandemic, and on top of that, no one expected that it might influence their ability to afford vital veterinary care for their beloved pets. We feel for those affected by this situation, but some kind individuals at the Animal Welfare Society of South Florida decided to do something about it!

 According to Local10.com news: 'The Animal Welfare Society of South Florida has been helping pet owners since 1972. Most recently, Tiffany Acevedo and her family couldn't afford to help save Thor, their 6-year-old pit bull, after he developed an abdominal obstruction. The Animal Welfare Society gave them and thousands of other pet owners hope this year with the pet retention and compassionate care programs. Thor was able to get surgery and he is back to playing around with the family he loves.'

'They literally saved his life and my heart at the same time,' Acevedo said 

Awwmazing!
