Buddy, an exceptionally sweet elderly Cocker Spaniel mix, is having a very Merry Christmas Eve. He just heard the news that he and his two kitty pals, Ying and Kammer, who have all been together for 10 years, will get to go home to their mom on Tuesday. They have been separated since November when their mom had to flee a domestic abuse situation that was putting her and her pets in grave danger. She was facing eviction as well. The domestic abuse shelter would not accept pets, so Buddy and his cat pals went to a city animal shelter where their mom thought they would be safe. Unfortunately, she soon received a call saying they were no longer welcome. They would either be adopted to other families or euthanized.
