Here's what's been going on since our last post:
On 5/6 RESCUE cat Christian was adopted. His adopters were looking for another cat to keep their 16 year old kitty company. They had recently lost their other 16 year old cat. When I spoke to Kimberlie we had just saved Christian and I wanted to get to know him a bit better before his potential adopters came to meet him. On 5/6 they came to meet him and loved him even more than the photos and videos that I had sent them. :) On 5/8 we received an email that their 16 year old cat had suddenly fallen ill, was rushed to the hospital and after many hours of heartache they had to let her go. :( They were devastated. Losing two of their feline companions in such a short period of time was more than one should bear. But Christian must have sensed their sorrow because he helped them heal and comforted them during their tragedy. Maybe Christian was meant to come into their lives at that time for this very reason...who knows. I know that his adopters are very grateful for him and his companionship. They have renamed him Dusty Bottoms and promise to send more photos soon.
On 5/6 RESCUE dog Diamond was adopted. Her new home is with a couple with no other dogs or cats. Her new dad is retired and looking forward to Diamond's companionship, while Diamond's new mom is an avid 2-3 mile a day walker. This is perfect for Diamond as she is a great snuggler and walker!!
On 5/6 RESCUE kitten Tasha got her first set of kitten shots. She was none to happy about that! She continues to grow and is up to 2.6 pounds. We continue to work on her socialization with other people and cats as well.
On 5/8 RESCUE dog Shani had another check up with the vet. She looked FANTASTIC!!! She continues to do amazing and we should be able to spay her soon. We set up a Facebook page just for her if you'd like to see her progress from when we saved her.
RESCUE and Whole Foods have partnered together for their Wooden Nickel Program. The program will run from 5/11 to 7/5 at their Tatum and Shea location. If you bring in your own bags, they will donate a nickel per bag back to RESCUE!!! Please help support our efforts. Every little bit helps.
On 5/12 RESCUE cat Big Papi moved into foster care. Big Papi is a very chatty Black Smoke Mane Coon cat. He is the only kitty in foster care and has a stay at home mom to chat away the day with. He is doing well and we'll continue to update you on his time in foster care.
On 5/12 RESCUE was honored to save three dogs lives. Gretel is a scruffy 8 pound little terrier mix. Hank is a handsome 45 pound Flat Coated Retriever mix. Merlin is a 93 pound Anatolian Shepherd. While Gretel and Hank were stray dogs, Merlin had an owner. Merlin has ended up at the pound several times. Unfortunately this last time his owner didn't return phones or come to pick up Merlin. All three are safe and being well cared for with us. Merlin is extra lucky because he is enjoying his time in foster care. We'll keep you posted on all three.
On 5/13 RESCUE dog Fozzy was adopted. Thanks to a referral from a RESCUE volunteer, Fozzy found his new mom! He now shares his home with a 9 year old canine brother, a mom that works from home and he only lives a couple of miles from his foster parents!!
I think that brings you up to speed on the last week or so of RESCUE. Thank you for all your support. Please help us spread the word about RESCUE. Here's to another great week! We hope you continue to follow our journey.
