My husband and I started to volunteer with Homeless Pets Foundation last fall. After working a couple adoptions, we noticed a senior dog, Waffle, who did not receive much attention from perspective adopters. Waffle was the victim of a hoarding case and, at 14 years old, had been at the shelter for six months. When others overlooked his kind smile and desire for love, my husband and I saw that he needed us as much as we needed him. We gave him a good bath, bought some new toys and beds for him, and we brought him home. He has become the best of friends with his two-year-old brother, a lab retriever. They play all the time. I believe our young dog brings out the younger dog in Waffle. Twenty-five years ago, I was born… 11 years later Waffle was born; it took us 14 years to unite, but we finally found each other. It took Waffle 14 years to find his forever family and we’re going to give him the best of love to ensure he forgets the trials life brought him. He’s been a joy to my life and every morning when I wake up, I enjoy hugging him each and every time. Our family is finally complete! -Leslie Brown
Someone’s heart always falls for the runt of the litter and we can see why. Congrats to little Frogger and the Torbert family! Thank you for adopting!
Joy stopped by the clinic on Tuesday evening after the Superbowl to pick up a dog that she had been fostering. However, the dog was adopted just before Joy arrived. In a way it was a good thing because she was told that there was a little dog that needed some special attention. He was…
Gidget’s gone home! Looks like Dad’s outnumbered by the feminine persuasion in this household. I can think of worse things. 🙂 Enjoy life with your new family, puppy. Thank you for adopting!
Fame was one of our many orphaned kittens that we’ve rescued this year. He came to us tiny and fighting for his life. Our amazing bottle feeding volunteer nursed him back to health and now he has a family to call his own.
Occasionally we rescue a dog who struggles to be adoption-ready. Their bad prior life rendered them tricky to re-home. Harley was part of a neglect/hoarding case. She’d been kept in poor conditions for so long that when we rescued her, she had no idea how to respond. As a result, some of our volunteers walked…
Toby got picked by a guy named Cody! Looks like Toby has quickly learned that the bed is the best place in the house for kicking back with toys.
