CAIM, who recently appeared on the Animal Planets popular TV reality show Pit Bulls and Parolees will be a special guest in the annual Many Christmas Parade to be held on December 21 at 3 p.m.
CAIM was recently adopted by Robeline residents Tommy and Dayna O’Con from the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans. A young couple, Paul and Michelle found CAIM along the Mississippi River struggling for life. When located, she weighed only 20 pounds. The Good Samaritans brought her to the rescue center where she completely recovered and now weighs 55 pounds.
Caim’s adoption series entitled “Never Too Late” was aired on Pit Bulls and Parolees on Saturday, November 23, 2019. The show touched millions of lives in both the United States and many other countries. The episiode can also be viewed on CAIM’s Facebook Page entitled CAIM.
Michelle shared the following heart wrenching story with the O’Cons concerning the rescue:
Paul was fishing along the Mississippi River when he had to move his truck. CAIM got in front of his truck and he had to slam on the brakes. It was as if she didn’t care if he hit her. He got out and picked her up and she didn’t put up a fight. When he got her home he told me to go outside, that he had found a dog and she was really skinny and that we needed to contact the Assumption Parish Shelter. When he took her out of the truck and let her stand in the grass I think that’s when it hit both of us of how INCREDIBLY skinny she was. She was just fur and bones. She had something black all over her ears. I was afraid to touch her and hurt her. So he went and fixed her a small bowl of food and water and I sat in the grass like you see in the picture. She drank the entire bowl of water and ate the entire bowl of food and then walked over to me and just sat there. So I put my hand out and she just rest her poor frail chin in my hands. After a while she walked over and laid in the sun as shown in the picture with her ribs so bad. She was actually just lying in the sun. She looked so peaceful. When I couldn’t get in touch with Ms Tia’s office, LUCKILY we live only 10 minutes down the road from the Villalobos Rescue Center. So we brought her there and when my husband took her out Ms. Tia couldn’t believe she was that skinny and alive. She could hold her in one arm. And when we had to leave her she just stared at me with the saddest eyes and I felt so bad! But that has totally changed now. I feel SO HAPPY she is happy and healthy!!
CAIM would like to invite all of her friends to this Saturday’s Many Christmas Festival.
