When Mo arrived at the Cleveland Animal Protective League, you would never know that there was an adorable, 3-month-old puppy hiding beneath his severe injuries. You see, when Mo came to the Cleveland APL through our Dog Transfer Program, his left eye and right ear were badly injured. He was also full of worms and covered in ticks. Mo was in desperate need of care and medical attention, and that is exactly what he received when he arrived at the Cleveland APL.
Upon his arrival, Mo’s worms and ticks were treated, and because of the severity of his injuries, both his eye and ear needed to be removed. After spending time at the Cleveland APL getting lots of love, care and attention, Mo met his new family! Joey and her daughter Carly came to the APL one Wednesday afternoon in May in search of a four-legged addition to their family. Carly walked up to the kennel that Mo was sitting in and one look was all it took. Carly had tears in her eyes when she asked her mom if they could adopt Mo. She was afraid no one else would want him. Mo went home with Carly and her mom that day. The adorable pup is now a part of a large, loving family and still stays close to his sister Carly who fell in love with Mo that Wednesday afternoon in May at the Cleveland APL.
