Alyssa posted a video of the dog with gut-wrenching images of her deplorable conditions and the foundation revealed that she covered the dog’s entire flight cost to be flown to the United States and given to a foster home where she is thriving in her recovery.

"I am thrilled to have brought Bomi to safety, and look forward to the day she finally gets adopted to a forever home," Alyssa told exclusively.

"My heart goes out to the countless other dogs and cats who are suffering from animal abuse, struggling to survive on the streets, or waiting in animal shelters for a quality home,” Alyssa said.

"For many months, TFPF worked hard to make arrangements for Bomi's rescue. We wanted to make sure we could provide Bomi with top-notch veterinary care, and secure her a lifelong home," says Sheila Choi, Founder and CEO of The Fuzzy Pet Foundation. "We wanted to have a proper plan in place so that we were not just naively flying an animal to a different country amid the animal overpopulation crisis happening everywhere in the world."
