Gabriel The Batman Pibble
Representing Shelter “Monsters” making a difference & being the voice for the voiceless
Gabriel was found beaten, starved and neglected in the streets of Jackson, MS. He now lives in Nashville, TN, and is fighting animal abuse and being the voice for dogs still looking for their forever homes everyday.
Gabriel was found in a ditch on Thanksgiving day in 2012. He was on his last whim. Abused, neglected, and left to die, he had cuts all over, his teeth are almost nubs, and he could hardly stand he was so emaciated.
Gabriel was luckily found by a nice woman and taken to a local no-kill animal shelter in the area. The lovely people at the shelter, Community Animal Rescue & Adoption, gave him the much needed love, attention, and rehabilitation he was in major need of. He lived for the next two years at the shelter.
Finally, in October of 2014, we decided it was time to get Gabriel out of the kennel he so much hated and brought him home to Nashville, TN to be a part of our family. But that’s not where our story ends. When we adopted him, it was then we found out that he was a strong heartworm positive. With the help of our friends, family, and even complete strangers, we raised over $2,000 to cover his whole heartworm treatment and get him to a healthy state!
It has been almost a year since heartworm treatment and we can now say that Gabriel is 100% healthy. He is living the life of a spoiled pibble who loves to go out and spread his love with everyone he meets!
