In a recent tragedy, a couple was killed by a drunk driver during a police chase in California.
Aaron McDonald, 31, and Irene Jaramillo, 30, were planning a wedding for the summer. But as they were returning home from Irene’s birthday party on April 2, a drunk driver hit their car and killed them both.
Now an animal rescue group is trying to find a home for their two dogs. The dogs were like the couple’s babies, so they are confused and alone without them.
