The chances of a dog found on the streets ending up in a stable, happy forever home are, sadly, pretty slim. If you’re a dog like Oscar, who, for reasons unknown, is paralyzed, those chances drop nearly to zero.
Oscar was staring at those odds when he was picked up by animal services in New York City, and, facing the cruel reality of adoption for special needs animals, he was placed on death row. That’s when Urgent Part 2 got a hold of Oscar’s story and posted his info to its network. NY Pet-I-Care swept in and rescued the little Dachshund mix, and that’s how he came to his new home.
