Adoption status

This little street dog has one of the most miraculous rescue stories in the history of Villalobos Rescue Center. After falling down 40 feet into the run off from a pumping station here in New Orleans, landing in the alligator infested waters are actually what saved his life. Narrowly escaping them, he managed to crawl up onto a concrete slab where he remained for days until construction workers heard his cries. After putting together a very elaborate rescue plan, we managed to haul “Gemmill” up to safety. He is currently going through heart worm treatment and still adjusting to people (he can be just a little bit shy) but soon he will be available for adoption. But for now he and his buddies here at Villalobos will continue to spend quality time together and talk of happy times to come.
