On Wednesday, Zeus, a young pit bull, was rescued from the Chicago, Ill., Animal Care and Control.
Zeus' photo was posted on Facebook on Tuesday, along with a plea for help. Zeus' family had left him at the animal control facility and he was heartbroken about being left behind.
Zeus was listed as "rescue only," and there was great concern for his safety.
On Wednesday, I received the following email containing wonderful news:
I picked Zeus up this afternoon for CPR Fund K9 Rescue. He will be boarding at our vet's office (Forest South Animal Hospital in University Park, IL) until his foster mom returns from vacation on March 7th. He's a super sweet dog who loved the car ride and thoroughly enjoyed being scratched behind the ears. I have included a few pictures from his freedom ride.
Many thanks to CPR Fund K9 Rescue for saving Zeus' life and putting a smile back on his handsome face.
