Tributes floods the social media
The operator of Kismutt Rescue in St. Marys, Ontario in an official Facebook post wrote
Yesterday, I lost a best friend, my first cousin, a true animal advocate, to COVID19.
We rescued so many dogs together, abused, neglected dogs. Sometimes in the dead of night. He was someone I could call at 2 in the morning and he would answer. We had secrets we would take to our grave.
So many memories, so many laughs….oh the laughs….we would nearly pi** our pants. We had the same demented humor.
We had the same likes and dislikes. He was as bold and mouthy as I am. He wouldn’t back down no matter what we had to do to rescue a dog(s).
Only 4 years older than I, we were close right from the time we were little kids. We showed horses together for years.
When I got the phone call, I was gutted. He was too young.
The animal community lost a huge advocate and I lost my best friend and cousin.
