This is a true rags to riches success story. Debbie Wilson (now Dellafina) came to MHS in February after she was rescued by Humane Enforcement Officers from a shocking hoarding situation. This adorable little Ridgeback was flown from Maui to an adoption-guaranteed program in California through our Wings of Aloha Transfer Program
. Once in California, volunteers at the transfer shelter worked hard to find a safe way to transport Dellafina to her forever home hundreds of miles away – an ohana that had been searching high and low just for a (rare) mini Ridgeback! Maui Humane Society is thrilled to hear that Dellafina is living the life she always deserved and we’re grateful for all the people who made this a true “happily ever after” outcome for Dellafina.
Sometimes it takes a village to help a dog find their forever home, but it’s all worth it when you see everyone’s smiling faces.
“She has been with us for 2 weeks and is settling in to her new digs. Della is very petite with her tiny little ridge. She loves to snuggle in a tiny ball and gives the gentlest of kisses. Who would have thought there would be a “small” Ridgeback waiting for us. We love our sweet Dellafina which means ‘delicate and petite’ in Italian.”
