NBCRightNow.com - After being left for dead she has come a long way. Sunday, a dog that is inspiring thousands of people nationwide passed through our region.
This is a story about Faith. Faith is a small dog who has had a very large impact. On Facebook, thousands of people nationwide have watched as she has recovered from a near death experience and now those same people are helping make sure that she finds a new home.
"Faith was pregnant and somebody decided they didn't want to take care of her anymore so evidently they slit her throat in two places," explained Cindy McCreery from Kennewick who is a local Faith supporter.
Luckily, a loving group in Louisiana called SNARR (Special Needs Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation) found Faith. They nursed the very pregnant and starving dog back to health. Sadly, she was not healthy enough to care for her puppies.
"The babies didn't make it. They were just too weak and she was too weak," said McCreery.
Despite having been through so much, Faith is alive and full of love. A family in British Columbia had been watching her online and decided to adopt her. The next step was finding her way to a new home; one where that love could be put to good use.
"She may not know where she's going, but she's got to know that it's a wonderful home," said Kate Busico another local volunteer.
Friends of Faith spread across thousands of miles formed a caravan with 20 legs. 20 different groups drove hours at a time to pass her from state to state until she made it home. Even from Kennewick to Ellensburg, faith moved along.
"This just shows how one unkind act can show so much kindness," said McCreery.
Faith has made it to her new home. From Ellensburg she headed north where she met her new adoptive mom.
