Gifford sat on the porch of a small, unoccupied cabin with a “For Sale” sign posted nearby. He was all alone, covered in matted fur and had no prospects for shelter as winter approached. A CFC-O-supported charity found him and brought him back to their shelter to care for him.
The charity shaved off more than three pounds of matted fur, cleaned him up, and gave him some much needed love. They named him Gifford after Gabby Giffords because he, like Gabby, had the true grit to survive.
After being abandoned, little Gifford had a hard time trusting humans. But after more than a year of loving care, Gifford was adopted into a loving, happy home.
