January 18, 2017- Meet the newest member of the Addis Jemari family…Lucky the dog! Cindy Douglass, our Executive Director, saw this sweet pup being held by a man on the streets in Addis Ababa and asked if she could pet it. The man proceeded to put the puppy on Cindy’s lap and said, “This dog now belongs to you.” And he walked away!
Being the animal lover that she is, Cindy took the dog home to the Addis Jemari house, and the girls and staff are already in love with Lucky! He is teaching the girls responsibility and how to care for something besides just themselves. Just another way Addis Jemari is teaching life skills.
Next time you see Cindy, get her to tell you the story of why she named him Lucky…it’s a good one!
