Happy paws animal rescue Animal rescue in Chula Vista, CA

In 2014 at the age of 36, I suffered various strokes, these events not only impacted my life drastically but it also my daughter's life at the age of 7 years. Who in the moment became my greatest support at her short age. My process of recovery not only physical but emotional was draining. After my soul tried to look for something that would give me back my desire to live.
I found new love with a puppy my sister had acquired during my hard times.

My journey started with a pup name max that my sister got from animal shelter, he give us unconditional love, unfortunately he passed away due to a car accident. Afterr his death I got really depressed, and felt that I needed to do something to help out on my behalf. I vouched to help and protect any living being within my reach.


My first pup came into our lives to cure everything going on then came our second one and we realized we wanted to do more for those souls without a voice that deserves a home that can provide lots of love and cuddles.
Picture
My goal in life is to save those defenseless pups from so much pain, abuse, and negligence. My end goal is to bring a smile on to the puppy’s and puppy’s owners who find the same love as I did.
