I took Abby in to my home in Sept of 2005. She was flea infested and very thin. But the most loving dog I ever met. Before she could come home with me she went to my vet for a full check up. Thank God all that was needed was frontline to rid her of fleas and her shots.
Sorry to say that in Dec. of 2007 Abby was diagnosed with mouth cancer and went to the bridge Sept 13th 2008. Her remains are now in my living room along with one of her toy's, a pic of her and a few other thing's.
I miss her more and more everyday.
This is Jack aka Monkey,
I adopted Jack at the Lower Keys Friends Of Animals in Key West Fl. I had 2 K9's of which one had passed away leaving the other in need of a friend while I was working. What a friend Jack became to Andy then Madison then Max and Belle. It was all ways so fun to have him around.
Jack always thought he was a K9 with really good jumping abilities.
Jack and I were together for almost 14 years.
He went to Heaven in June 2009 but left so many beautiful memories in my mind.
I was blessed to have known him.
What a good boy. Missed so much but remembered always.
This is my buddy Jinx. I got him at our local animal shelter just over a year ago. He's the sweetest cat and constantly makes me laugh! I recommend anyone looking for a kitten or cat go to their local animal shelter and find their new best friend.
I got a call from Canine Castaways in Arcadia, Florida about an abused Chihuaha who needed a special home. Watching Chi Chi come out of her shell and forget her abusive past has been incredibly rewarding. It's been four years and she now enjoys life. She may have needed a special home, but my home wasn't special until she filled it to overflowing with her six pounds! There is nothing as rewarding as helping an animal learn to love and trust again.
My fiance and I adopted Sugar, from the Friends of Animals Pet Shelter in Cloquet, MN. We had decided one day to just take a walk and see what kind of dogs were in the shelter. The first time I saw Sugar I knew she was the one. She was laying in the back of the kennel on her blanket sleeping and when she heard us step up to the kennel she jumped up and came to greet us. We went to visit her everyday for over a week until she was available for adoption. When we finally got to take her home, we knew she had chosen us. She loves to cuddle, and I get the feeling that she thanks us everyday for giving her a loving home. Our lives are so much richer now that we have rescued a loving animal and she has rescued us!
One stormy day, our garage door was open on our ranch in Texas. My mom suddenly saw something moving on the side of the car in the garage, and there was this beautiful coon hound dog. She looked like a big puppy but had her breasts full of milk. There was a big bump on one side of her also. There were no puppies around and she was not used to passing underneath the fences on a ranch. The vet had said that she had recently had puppies, that she had been abused as well as most likely abandoned, and that she was about 8 months old. We put up notices to see if anyone had lost her. A year went by and no one ever claimed her, so I had her spaded and claimed her myself. She picked me out of the many ranches around us. We have gone through a lot of great moments in the past 6 years we have been together. I am so lucky!!
This is Jasper, our adopted cat from the North Attleboro, MA animal shelter. We found him on Petfinders after we decided to get another family member. He had been found wandering the streets in the bitter cold of January, cold and hungry, and brought to the shelter by good samaritans. Bringing him home has been like bringing sunshine into the house- he is just about the happiest, funniest cat we have ever had and he loves 2 of our other 3 cats ( all girls). He thinks life is pretty good!!
We adopted this sweet little puppy from a shelter in Corinth, NY called Adirondak Save A Stray. He was in a large pen with 4 other puppies. All of the other puppies were black and brown in color and Louie was the only light haired puppy in the pen...so you can imagine how he stood out. He locked eyes with us and we knew at that moment that he was meant to be our little baby!!
Louie is 1 1/2 years old and he is such a sweet pup. We can't bare the thought of not having our morning licks and pounce. Or when he cuddles up next to me on the couch. We love him so much and are so blessed that her found us!!
Ballston Lake, NY
Luna came to me when she was about 8 months old and had already had puppies. One stormy day, our garage door was open. We live on a ranch in Texas. My mom suddenly saw something moving on the side of the car, and there was this beautiful coon hound dog, that looked like a big puppy but had her breasts full of milk. There was a big bump on one side of her also. There were no puppies around and she was not used to passing underneath the fences on a ranch. The vet had said that she had been abused as well as most likely abandoned, and that she was about 8 months old. We put up notices to see if anyone had lost her. A year went by and no one ever claimed her. She picked me out of the many ranches around us, and has been with me for 5 years. I am so lucky!!
This is Sassy. About a year ago I got a call from my grandaughter telling me she had been seeing this kitten every time she visited her friend at an apartment complex. She knew it didn't have a home because it was so skinny and so hungry. She kept telling me how pretty she was and how sweet. I really didn't need another pet but I said bring her to me. I agreed that she was pretty and she really was skinny, but I named her Sassy because that is what she was. She didn't want to be touched and growled every time you tried to pick her up. I just waited and let her take her time and she is now coming and getting on my lap. That made my day the first time she did that. She is a comic. She keeps us laughing all of the time because you never know where you will find her. There is not a box or a sack that she has not been found in. I am so glad my grandaughter brought her to me that day because she is a true gift. All animals need a chance. If you can please adopt. They are what makes a house a home.
