As you can see in his picture, Zippy was thrilled to be reunited with his owner. Previously, his over was not able to care for Zippy because of addiction and knew Zippy deserved a better life. His owner decided to surrender him to an animal shelter and worried he would never see him again. When his owner went to Homeward Bound Treatment Center and told them about the situation, they immediately got in touch with Dogs Matter and the next day they came and got Zippy to take him to a temporary foster home. His owner was so happy and able to focus on himself and getting better.
