Freedom's Story...
My name is Freedom,

I am an abuse victim, with a story that has not brought forth concrete proof. Either way Marc and the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, with the help of the people who reported the incident - were able to rescue me.

Prior to his organization coming to my aid - details of my case were reported several times to LA Animal Cruelty and Animal Control who claimed there was little they could do without concrete evidence.

This is when the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation took action, trying for over a month to catch my abuser in the act so I could find salvation.

In the end I went from being able to walk, to sustaining an unknown injury that impaired my mobility. Marc knew saving me could no longer wait, and tonight I was finally surrendered into his care.

I cannot tell you how long I waited for a day like today. How persecution and the physical hand of abuse, how it has crushed and scarred me internally. For months I wondered if this was the end. If my whole being would cease to exist, and my voice smothered by the same hands that strangled me.

Witnesses reported me being hung by a tree. Residents who lived in my complex reported my screams and yelps. For months I have been trying to speak out, trying to say with these lips - help.

Each night I would wait in the corner of my room. Each night I would ask myself why the abuse. After a while I grew to believe that I deserved it. That I was filth. Trash thrown and laid upon the floor.

I wept silently when Marc reached down to save me. Shed tears that evaporated into the air, tears that signified the months I have spent waiting for my liberation. Marc told me that it was over. That all the torment and pain would melt away. That he would find me a perfect home, a place built out of laughter and cheer.

He told me he does not know how I can repair my inner self. He told me he does not know what it takes to rebuild a damaged soul. But he did say this - that moving forward is about letting ago. It's about forgiving those who are ignorant, those who would hurt and persecute me.

He told me that life is a gift and that freedom changes all possibility. He gave me my name because of this. Because now and until the last breath fades from my lungs, I will choose my path. And that if anything - he said I should choose love.

I'm in need of a home. I'm in need of love.

Save my soul...

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Freedom, a Studio City Cocker Spaniel dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cocker Spaniel for sale in Studio City, or seeking a Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Studio City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Studio City already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Studio City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cocker Spaniel breeders who help with Cocker Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Studio City paves the way for another one to be saved.
