Congratulation to Cornsilk who generated a lot of interest because of his extreme cuteness but was a bit tricky to place because of his quirks. He was rescued from a hoarder and did NOT have a happy life there. As a result he fears women, children and things that go bump in the night.
Enter Mr. Weems, who is such a nice, patient man. He gave Cornsilk all the time he needed to feel comfortable with him (which turned out to be hardly any time at all!). It’s a match made in rescue heaven! Thanks so much for providing the perfect home!
And a very special thanks to the volunteers who fostered Cornsilk and got him adoption ready – you saved the day!

Phil finally came to his senses, realizing he’d much rather work with animals than in a chemical plant. Dr. Good obtained his doctorate in veterinary medicine from UGA in 2011.
