A Google employee’s 'search' for a rescue pet leads him to PetRescue
When Michael from the Google team in Australia decided to welcome a new pet to his family on the occasion of his wife’s birthday, his first search kicked off at… well you guessed it, PetRescue 😉 And that’s where he found the (furry) love of his life, Bandi, listed by RSPCA Burwood.
And you bet it was love at first sight! Since the adoption, Michael cannot help but sing praises of his bundle of joy.
Although Bandi didn’t have the easiest life, amazing humans like Michael and his family filled the rest of his days with immeasurable love and happiness.
And we’re just in stitches reading about some of Bandi’s hilarious little quirks.
“He loves spinning. When he's happy he spins, when he's excited he spins, when he's hungry he spins… in short, he loves to spin, but only right, he never goes left,” said Michael.
We were lucky enough to meet Michael when we hosted our first-ever virtual Hackathon back in September with the help of our awesome friends at Google. But it was little Bandi’s adorable snaps that really made the event highlights 😍
“He wasn't in the best shape as had been kept outside all his life, bouncing between homes, and we thought we could give him the warm loving forever home he deserved at the age of seven. It's been love ever since,” said Michael.
It’s heartwarming to know that amazing humans like Michael and his wife are there for pets like Bandi, who haven’t always had stable homes.
In fact, Michael is extremely pleased to have been able to open his home to a rescue pet, saying,
“Adopting a rescue pet is incredibly rewarding. It can be a bit of a challenge finding the right pet for you and can take some time, but have patience. When you do find the one, and look into their eyes and know you can give them the home they deserve you’ll be opening yourself up to an amazing experience you will never regret.”
Being able to have access to PetRescue’s massive database of adoptable pets was a huge advantage to Michael when he was looking for a new furry friend,
“Once we found PetRescue, we never looked anywhere else. It had everything we needed to find Bandi and the idea of all the rescue organizations aggregated in one place saved us hours of time. Love the service and people who make it happen. Thank you so much!!!”
