The idea of staff bringing in a lethargic, abandoned puppy into the office would make most businesses cringe, but the people from LIVEOUTLOUD Events teamed up with their fellow colleague Lauri Hansen to help foster little Cupcake back to health.
On her first day at the LIVEOUTLOUD offices she was lethargic, malnourished and had pneumonia, biliary and worms. It was very much 50/50 whether she was going to make it through the day. Lauri was feeding her every 3 hours with the help of Kevin Taylor who would hold little Cupcake while Lauri tried to get some food into her mouth. Kevin would often do Facebook posts on her progress 🙂
By Wednesday, day 3 of Cupcake being fostered by the team, she was a different dog. Starting to walk and even attempting a tail wag! By now the events team was in total puppy loving phase. Cupcake was getting enormous amounts of loves, kisses, rubs, cuddles, treats, toys – even new jersey’s to keep her tiny body warm in the bitter winter wind!
She hit a rough patch when she had a bad reaction to an inoculation, it is very rare but it didn’t stop her. She got her legs bandaged to support her bones and after a few days was back to normal and improving minute by minute!
It’s now 3 weeks later and Lauri says for her it is an incredible feeling seeing her precious foster baby go from half dead to the energetic, fun loving puppy she is today! She loves the rewarding feeling you get from fostering a helpless puppy and seeing them grow into a strong, healthy dog ♥
Her colleagues feel the same, and say they are going to miss Cupcake when she gets adopted….we told them not to worry as we have no doubt there will be another fluff ball needing their awesome team work fostering skills soon!
From the Ark Staff we would like to send the biggest THANK YOU to the LIVEOUTLOUD events team for opening their hearts and making it possible to change the life of a helpless animal even if you work full time. Stephanie Scorgie, Lauri Hansen, Tanya Dorman and Kevin Taylor….you are amazing people – wish we could clone you!!
