Raina Chan (Dog)
Alex Chan has a dog named Raina Chan that he adopted in August 2012. Raina was a rescue from WAG, a local no-kill shelter in Whistler, Canada. Volunteers rescued the entire litter at an estimated 1-week old but the mom was nowhere to be found. The young pups were too young to be separated from their mother so volunteers searched high and low for the mom the following days. After reaching a few locals in the area, they were able to find the mom abandoned in a backyard. She was so weak that her ribs were showing and she was unable to produce milk. Regardless, the puppies needed their mom. She was brought to the shelter and named Lucky. The fortunate mom was reunited with her puppies and she now had a team of volunteers to help. With a little determination, only one puppy was lost and the rest grew strong and healthy. Lucky began feeling better, and trusting people again. Shortly after, Raina was adopted and she lived a beautiful life with a mountain as her backyard.
Raina passed away on June 13, 2023.
April 19, 1982 (41)
