From Unwanted to Secure...and Sleepy!
The best things about working with animal rescue are the happy endings. Even though all dogs and cats can't enjoy a happy ending, it's stories like the ones below that keep us going and which make it all worth it. It's hard to deal with animals that have been abused, neglected, forgotten and abandoned. You want to crack some human heads and you start appreciating animals more than humans. At least I do.
Anyway, above are photos of Humane Society dogs that found a new life--one all pets deserve. In the upper left is Hines, who fell asleep in a child's bed. He is in a foster home and available for adoption.
Suzy is sleeping in a chair with her new daddy in her new home in Wisconsin. Amy....was Suzy part of the last transport? There are many happy endings from that. I will let Amy tell you more about it, as she's deeply involved in all those things, right Amy? I know one big dog that were cat Cats Are Us for a long time found his permanent homes through the transport.
Forest is sleeping on the floor with his foster daddy. Amy says, "Foster daddy, y, right... only a week with them and they opted to adopt him for good. Poor baby was stabbed in the eye by former owner & will need to have it removed." And people think something is wrong with me for liking dogs and cats better than many humans? Humans are far more evil. But now this dog will never have to worry about being abused again.
Neiko, the pup sleeping under the chair was a foster dog that now lives in Nashville with a new mommy.
Remember, the Humane Society always needs temporary foster homes for their dogs and cats until they are adopted. The Humane Society pays for vet care, spaying, neutering, while the foster family provides food and love.
Hey Brett, maybe you can bring home a foster cat to keep Pearl company! If any of you have room in your home and heart to temporarily care for a dog or cat in need, give the Humane Society a call. For more info, visit their website at: www.clarksvillehumanesociety.org
