The pup she named Leo was underweight and covered in ticks, “he would have been dead within the month if I hadn’t moved him”. Meagan reached out to rescue groups but no one could take him.

Unfazed, Meagan set up a Facebook page and a gofundme page to raise money to bring Leo back to Canada with her.

Xrays showed Leo’s broken spine, he will never be able to walk again.

Three months after Leo was found on the beach, he landed in Canada in October!
