“When Lynette McIlveen was sick, her son’s dog, Hugo, helped her recover her health. But after the 2-year-old Shar Pei was found wandering in their Gold Coast community in Australia, he was impounded and put on death row. Care2 member Tania Wood started a petition to save Hugo. When authorities insisted he must be euthanized, a massive outcry arose and thousands of people joined the fight to save Hugo. On September 1, Hugo was set free. He is now living with relatives of his owner.”
