A dog in New Jersey is looking for a new family after she lost both owners from coronavirus over the weekend.
When Che-Che was brought to the Monmouth County SPCA, she was scared and shaking. The staff wore full PPE and kept the nine-pound dog in isolation before giving her a bath.
“We can’t imagine what it’s like for a dog like her to suddenly lose everything she’s ever known and then end up in an unfamiliar place,” the group posted on Facebook.
The rescue group said Che-Che had a great family and they want to honor that by finding the dog a perfect new home. As more people found out the story of Che-Che, calls are already pouring in.
“Che-Che will receive some veterinary care, including dental, spay and vaccines plus a warm bubbly bath so that rubbery gloves and crinkly gowns are no longer needed to give her some affection!,” they added.
“When Che-Che is ready, we plan to honor the family and those they lost by finding this sweet little girl the perfect home.”
Though there are protocols to follow during this coronavirus pandemic, the staff’s work to help all animals in need and keep their rescued animals in good health continues.
Officials say it is good news that more people are fostering and adopting animals as they look for companionship during these trying times.
