It’s hard to resist something sweet for long, and true to form, Sugar came and went from SAFE about as fast as you can say ‘isn’t he just the sweetest thing!’ That’s right, little Sugar has been adopted! Sugar, now known as “Au Poni Kopa’a” (Ko) which means “the sugar I need” or, “to put sugar on it” in Hawaiian, has gone to live at The Way Forward youth ranch, where he will help empower troubled youth and adults as part of their program. When owner Cynthia first came to meet him, she was smitten from first sight, and could hardly wait to get him home. Ko, as he is now known, will know nothing but endless love and the best of care in his new home alongside Cynthia, Chad, and the rest of The Way Forward family. You can learn more about their program at

Congratulations, Sugar Ko! What a sweet ending for a sweet little dude.
