Kilo (aka Winky) passed away the evening of August 21, 2012, almost a year after he was put on hospice for a heart condition. He became a foster dog with Animal Rescue of the Rockies in May 2011 after being abandoned on a county road in LaJunta with an infected eye. Karen Martiny and ARR really stepped up to the plate for Kilo, having his infected eye removed and placing him in foster care. Having been badly abused, Kilo was slow to trust, but through the efforts of ARR, he spent his final year at least knowing what it felt like to be loved. Kilo is a fine example of why we do this work. I feel so privileged to have been one of his foster moms.
