After his elderly owner was stricken with a serious medical issue and taken away by EMS, Pegaleo hid, frightened by all the commotion and different people in his home. When a caretaker came in to look for and feed him he continued to hide, unsure of why his owner was gone. It was weeks later when the caretaker still didn’t see him, and his owner was going to a skilled nursing facility, that she decided to trap him so that she could bring him to the vet and board him temporarily. Quickly trapped, he did great at the vet and settled in quickly at the boarding facility. This 9 year old boy later joined the Sanctuary at the end of February.
