Special needs girl gets a free flight to join her new family
Special needs girl gets a free flight to join her new family.
Remember Matilda, from Angel-Paws Inc Animal Rescue North Queensland, who starred in our Adoptables campaign earlier this year? Matilda had really struggled to find love, because her fuzzy, restricted vision (caused by Corneal Dystrophy) means she can only see shadows, and sometimes gets spooked by moving objects or shows signs of anxiety in new situations.
She has about 70% vision, and therefore needed a life companion who is able to spend most of their time at home with her. Well… She found the most perfect home in Perth! The only problem was how to transport her safely all the way from Queensland to WA. So, Tia at Angel-Paws got in touch with PetRescue to request a free flight, and got instant approval from the awesome team at Jetpets.
On October 27th, Matilda packed her bags and left Brissie for her new home in Perth. “We all adore her to bits, and we’re loving having her in our lives,” says Matilda’s new dad, Harold.
