Champion "Champ"

Champion won over our hearts when his picture first showed up in our Facebook messenger. Hearts that were still mourning our sweet Ruby Sue felt comfort in hearing of the calf with a pinched nerve who could use all of her custom equipment to heal and live a normal life at our rescue. We quickly made the arrangements to have him here and began doing physical therapy hoping to see him walk on his own one day soon.

Bringing his Mama back to his side made us swell with pride as we promised them they would never be separated again.

UPDATE: Our sweet boy did not have a pinched nerve as first thought, he has a curving spine. We of course have made every accommodation for him and he now has custom beds and even a customized lift so we can move him inside and outside to enjoy the fresh air. Bath times are his favorite along with all the volunteers that spend time with him. He also loves getting to meet the kids and families that are just like him. 

This boy and his mama are such an inspiration for all the mom's and even dad's that care for their children just like Patchula cares for Champion. 

Meet Patchula

Originally Champion came to Safe in Austin alone, and just a day later Patchula, his mom came home too!

I’m from the UK and have just watched your episode of Queer Eye and it truly touched my heart. What you do for these animals and children is truly unbelievable, you are angels and I hope you all know how wonderful you are for taking care of all these animals in need.
