If you've been following the story, the home where Java lived with his people caught fire a couple of weeks ago and so Java had no place to live. While his owners were relocating and finding another home, the animal shelter came out and captured Java. Due to be euthanized the next day, a "caring neighbor," aka Steve, went down and paid for his rabies shot and boarding for ten day to spare his life.
Steve got in touch with Java's family and told them Java had been saved and as it turns out, they have found a place to stay where they are able to keep Java.
Steve met them at the animal shelter this morning and returned Java to them. The photo is Java in the arms of his owner; I can't tell you why they shaved his head. No explanation for that. But he's happy tonight and so a special thanks to Red who chipped into the tip jar to leave a donation for Java. Thanks to you, he's got no worries about rabies for at least a year!
Thanks also to those who expressed concern and who tried to find a home for Java in the event his owners couldn't be located. If you're looking to adopt a pet, please consider your local animal shelter. There are lots of loving pets there waiting for a home.
