WOW! What a month! October is “Adopt a Dog from a Shelter Month”, so I have been sharing some of the dogs that have been brought to the rescue in hopes of generating more adoptions. We have had a few, but we need more people to meet and adopt some of our special dogs. Betty found her forever home this week, and we hope it works out for both of them. Betty is such a sweet gal, and has been overlooked for some time. I teared up just a little when she placed her head on her new mom’s knee and looked up at her. It was worth it all to see Betty excited and happy.
Then there was Sox–who found a wonderful home with a young couple.
We have had a few young ones come in this month. Caesar is getting adopted today and we still have Sadie, who is 4 months of age, and Pearl who appears to be 5 months. Both girls will be large dogs, and have very sweet personalities. This is Sadie–It isn’t the best photo, but it shows her coloring. She was very thin and scared when she came here, but is beginning to gain after some tender loving care. Watch for photos of Pearl soon!
This month we received a very sweet lab mix gal and her four 10 day old puppies. She is medium sized and very happy to be here. I named her “Joy.” We will be posting photos of Joy and her puppies in the next few weeks.
The last several months 3 severe cases of mange and neglect were brought to the rescue. Elvis and Sammy are coming along, and looking better everyday. Fritz, a little black puppy was in very bad condition when he arrived. He is a work in progress and is receiving the treatment and love he needs. Watch for photos and a story in November.
So, as I wrap up my short stories for October, I just want to say—through all the hard work and sometimes tears, “It is worth it all!”
ADOPT A DOG FROM A SHELTER–AND SEE FOR YOURSELF!
