UPDATE: Long Term Shelter Dogs Finally Adopted!

During October, Adopt A Shelter Pet month, I spotlighted some very special adoptable dogs.  Today, I'm happy to share that most of the dogs spotlighted on my blog have been adopted into loving homes!!  I'd like to thank each and every one of you who shared my posts and retweeted my tweets to help get these wonderful dogs the exposure they needed to find homes!  I can't say whether or not our efforts alone got them adopted, but I know how important it was for these dogs to be SEEN; to get out of the shadows and into the limelight!  

Khalua: ADOPTED!!
5 year old KHALUA was surrendered to the shelter by her owner 8 months ago. Although she doesn't do well with other animals, Khalua deserves a Happily Ever After.  She has that now after finally being adopted 2 weeks ago!




Gator: ADOPTED!!
6 year old Pit Bull mix GATOR, who had been at the shelter for over 7 months, finally found his Furever home last week!  Way to go Gator!  Must have been the hat that did the trick (-:


Cascade: ADOPTED!!
I was pawsitively elated when I arrived at the shelter this morning to find that my darling girl, 6 year old CASCADE, was adopted yesterday!  A staff member told me that a lovely woman came in asking to meet Cascade after reading about her online.  After spending quality time together the woman adopted her!  This really made my day, as Cascade had been at the shelter since June.  I'm SO happy for Cascade and her new mommy!  I'll miss you my sweet girl, be happy in your new home!

Charon: Finally out of the shelter, being loved and cared for by a rescue
CHARON, a 6 year old Pit Bull mix had been at the shelter for 7 months.  He was adopted, but returned the very next day because he wasn't housetrained. He also has arthritis.  A wonderful Rescue organization stepped forward to help, getting him out of the shelter and into a home environment.  I know they'll take great care of Charon and find him the right Furever home!


CLAUS, a 2 year old Boxer mix has been at the shelter since July and is still waiting for a Furever home.  I hope this sweet boy finds a loving home soon!

I hope you don't mind that my Wordless Wednesday is a Wordy Wednesday - I really wanted to share this news with all of you and thank you for helping me get the word out about these dogs!

    1. Thanks, I think so too. These dogs languished in the shelter for months, but once they were spotlighted online they quickly got adopted! I think it speaks to the power of our collective online voices. Thanks for stopping by today Lily & Edward!
