Hurricane Irma Tillie
Name: Hurricane Irma Tillie
Breed: Australian Shepherd Mix
Rescued From: South Texas
Date: 09/10/2017
Organization: Eleventh Hour Rescue
Adoption Location: Texas
Right before Hurricane Irma struck south Texas, Eleventh Hour Rescue rescued Tillie from a shelter near Corpus Christi TX. She had barely been home a day or two before her foster family was forced to evacuate their home and flee to North Texas. Tillie made the trip with her family, all of their belongings, and their foster brother and sister. The whole family returned home a few days later after the winds died and thankfully found only minor damage to their home. Tillie's foster family decided that after having been through this emotional journey together, that they just could not give up Tillie and thus she became a "foster failure". Tillie is as happy as can be with her new family and they have quite the story to tell for many years. The Gemma Rose Project contributed funds towards getting Tillie vetted when she left the shelter.
