Watch This Heartwarming Story Of A Pit Bull With Neurological Issues Found Wandering On The Streets
Senior dogs in shelters don’t have the best opportunities to find the loving homes that they deserve. People look at their age and decide that they don’t want a dog for a short period of time, or one that already has a lot of problems. But Chris and Mariesa fell in love with him instantly and they’re happy that they decided to take him home.
DaVinci, a 10-12 year old Pitbull with neurological issues, was found wandering the streets of Albany, NY. After being taken in by the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, Chris and Mariesa went there to get to know the people who work there -- little did they know they would be meeting one of their future dogs! DaVinci was in bad shape and the Hughes' went back to the shelter to adopt him in January of 2014, thinking it would be a "hospice stay" and he wouldn't be around for long. Under the Hughes' care, DaVinci is like a new dog!
The Mr. Mo Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group started by Chris and Mariesa Hughes that has been responsible for saving countless shelter dogs nationwide since 2011. In honor of the life of their late and beloved senior dog Mr. Mo, the organization and the amazing Mr. Mo dog rescue community have saved over 200 senior dogs. As part of the program, the senior dogs’ medical and veterinary costs are covered for life while in their forever foster home, which averages $25,000 a month. The program currently has 92 senior dogs in foster homes.
