Kelly, Jesse, Kawa and Foz — April 24, 2023

Kelly, Jesse, Kawa and Foz

~ Kelly, Jesse, Kawa and Foz ~

Two years ago, Kelly and Jesse adopted Kawa. Just over a year later, they welcomed Foz into their home. Since then, they have become a family and have greatly impacted each other’s lives. 

In 2021, Kelly and Jesse were looking to adopt a furry friend. One day, they came across the Saving Hope Foundation page and had a connection with a 12-week-old pup. They decided to arrange a visit and as soon as they met her, they fell in love. The puppy was full of sass and was quite cheeky. After a while, she decided to curl up in Jesse’s lap. Then and there, Kelly and Jesse adopted the pup and named her Kawa.

Having Kawa has hugely impacted Kelly and Jesse’s lives. Each morning, she is the reason that Kelly gets out of bed – often as she excitedly jumps onto her bed for cuddles. Kawa encourages her humans to go to the beach every day, keeping them entertained with her antics and playing chase and hide and seek. She also keeps them on their toes as she is a notorious sock and underwear thief! As well as this, when Jesse travels for work, Kawa keeps Kelly company and makes her feel safe.

A year later, in 2022, Kelly and Jesse came across some puppies on Last Lampost looking for foster homes. The pups were riddled with fleas and worms but were being sold online. Thankfully, someone intervened and took the puppies to the rescue. Originally, Kelly and Jesse agreed they would only be fostering one of the pups, however, it wasn’t long until the pup stole their hearts. He was such a gentle and loving pup. Soon, he became a foster fail and found his forever home and a new name – Foz. 

Since adopting both Kawa and Foz, Kelly and Jesse have become strong advocates for adopting animals from rescues and for certain breeds that are often deemed dangerous. They have made it their mission to educate others about Pitbull breeds and helping children learn how to properly interact with dogs. 

Every day, Kawa and Foz impact Kelly and Jesse’s lives. From bringing endless joy and laughter to their daily lives, to sharing unconditional love, they have become a family and have improved each other’s lives hugely.
