Eventually, after years of sleeping in alleys and under cars, the people of Cairo began to take notice of the wounded dog.
The good people at Special Needs Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation made it their mission to find Anubis a home. “We’ve taken dozens of animals from them and brought them to the States, animals who otherwise would be in agony in a country that cannot care for them,” a member of SNARR’s team told The Dodo.
It wasn’t long before Anubis’ journey was underway. A flight across the Atlantic Ocean and a drive halfway across the United States were all that stood between Anubis and his new home in El Paso, Texas. Multiple volunteers stepped in to help with the drive that began at JFK airport.
The Dodo reports that Anubis will spend six months with his current foster family, but it’s possible that he winds up there for good. A SNARR team member said the foster family has fallen “head over heels for him.”
