On June 22, 2015, we told you about a homeless man named Lorenzo and his three dogs (Sharlina, Squeezums and Bobo) who are currently homeless in the Los Angeles, Calif., area. Jamin Dustin, founder of Cause4Paws met them and wanted to help them get off the streets. Well, thanks to your generous donations, Lorenzo and his pets might soon get a place to call home.
Dustin told us Lorenzo became homeless 43 years ago. In recent years he rescued three dogs – two large dogs and one little Chihuahua. The man builds tepees anywhere he can find space for him and his dogs, but most of their days are spent walking the city under the hot sun.
The pet owner knows that life on the streets is not ideal for any pet and he wished he could find a place he could call home. In a home, his dogs would be able to run off leash and be free instead of tied to the shopping cart he pushes around the city all day long.
Cause4Paws started raising funds online hoping to buy an RV for this homeless family. Their goal is to raise $4,000, and with the help of animal lovers they have surpassed their goal.
“I’ll be taking some of the donations to put [Lorenzo and the dogs] in a motel for a few days to get the dogs out of this heat,” Dustin told us.
The purchase of the RV has not been finalized yet, but with enough donations Lorenzo and his dogs could soon be in their own home.
