Akeelah - DSH
Akeelah was born to a feral mom in the home of an APAWS foster. She was born on March 31, 2006. Akeelah never fully accepted humans other than her foster mom. Because of this she was unable to be adopted. In September of 2007 Akeelah was diagnosed with the final stages of liver cancer. There was no available medical treatment. APAWS had to make the very difficult decision to euthanize her in order to spare her anymore pain.
Boku - DSH
Boku was born to a feral mom in the home of an APAWS foster. He never enjoyed adoption day and was never adopted. Just a few days after Akeelah, Boku's sister, passed away Boku appeared lethargic and limp. He was rushed to the Baton Rouge Pet Emergency clinic where they tried to save him. His lungs were full of blood and he passed away while at the clinic. It is still unknown why he had blood in his lungs, there are many possibilities, but we can't know for sure.
