This is the story of Naia the dog as well as NAIA the organization, because they are so connected that we can’t tell you about one without the other. Naia, the sweet pitbull in the photo, was my brother’s adopted dog. I had found her in a neglected and abused state when I was an animal control officer. Luckily we were able to rescue her, her siblings and their father. Naia was a truly amazing soul. She was loved by everyone that had the privilege to have met her. When Naia was 3 years old, she was diagnosed with Addisons disease. On September 9th 2014, Naia suffered an Addisonian crisis and passed away. NAIA’s Pet Rescue was founded in her Memory. NAIA’s name will live on by saving many animals in anguish just as she was when she was rescued. Gone but never forgotten.
