Vega was introduced to CCCARL through a local veterinary office where he had been hit by a car but the previous Owners could not afford treatment for him. He was just about to be euthanized when Friend's Rescued Animal Network (a rescue foundation) paid for the surgery to fix his broken hips while CCCARL worked diligently to find him a foster home for his post operative care. He then spent a short time at a foster home but touched the heart of the FRAN foundations director and returned to Denver to join her family where he is known as the "Vega Man". He is probably sitting on the couch right now and loves to play and romp with all his brothers and sisters, never quite knowing what his fate could have been. If it was not for the joint effort of CCCARL and the FRAN fund he would have turned into a another statistic and would not be able to live out his life in a safe happy home.
