We've been busy with the RESCUE animals since our last post. Here's what's been going on:
One of our recent rescued cats Mason has ringworm!! Poor guy! We are trying him and he has to be kept separate from the other cats but the volunteers are doing their best to keep him company. Hopefully within the next two weeks he will be completely over this.
We conducted a training class for our dog volunteers to help them understand dog body language, how to safely handle them on leash and how to do an introduction with another dogs. We had a dozen new volunteers attend the class. With this new knowledge our volunteers will be able to help provide even better care to our RESCUE dogs.
Unfortunately adoptions have been down a lot this year. Normally this is our busiest time of the year. Hopefully things will pick up soon. Thankfully we did have a number of adoptions - RESCUE cat Charlotte found her new home - click here for the details. RESCUE cat Giselle has a new home for the holidays too. Click here for the details. RESCUE dog Joel was adopted. Here's an update from his new mom. RESCUE dog Josie found a new home. And RESCUE dog Maximus also found his forever home.
RESCUE dog Rex and RESCUE cat Aidan both moved into foster care. They are doing very well. Rex has an adoption appointment this weekend so hopefully you'll be reading about his adoption in our next Blog update!
On 12/1 RESCUE was honored to save two lives from the kill list. Both are black and tan and both are "seniors." Louie is an adorable Beagle/Chihuahua mix. He is a super cuddle bug and wastes no time jumping into your lap! He is 8 years old an about 15 pounds. He had really long nails when we saved him but we have had those clipped so that should add a little more pep into his step. :) Then we have the lovely Mina who is a Black and Tan Hound mix. She is a sturdy 51 pounds and 10 years old. In typical hound fashion, Mina loves to walk and has her nose close to the ground to catch all the wonderful new smells.
We have a number of special events taking place this month and would really appreciate your support. Please attend the events if you can and/or please ask others to do the same. With your help we can raise some much needed funds for our efforts.

Donations are down substantially this year and the few expenses we do have are way up. We run on a shoestring budget so we do our best to stretch every dollar as far as we can. Please give what you can. Every dollar helps the dogs and cats of RESCUE.
Thank you for your support and for continuing to follow RESCUE's journey!
