Dexter was only 7 months old when his beloved owner was deployed to Afghanistan, and he was placed in foster care. essica, his new mom, writes "He's doing great! The cats are pretty much adjusted to him now. They sniff him and come up and lay on the bed with him." Getting Dexter to stay still for a photo wasn't easy, though. Here's a picture of the happy little guy and his doting mom on an outing to Cumberland Falls.
We are pleased that "Highway" and her nine, yes NINE, puppies have all been successfully adopted. "Highway" is a gentle black lab, that was found along with with her 9 newborn puppies (possibly Rotweiler cross) on the side of a highway, one frigid day last February.
Charlie was an abandoned, scared little puppy wandering forlorn and muddy on a winter day. Adopted by newley-weds, he became their first 'baby.'
Gus was dumped in the mountains, left to forage for food. When rescued, he was covered with wounds and almost bald from starvation. Today he's the pampered pet of a North Carolina couple who drove 600 miles to adopt him.
Loki had a hard time before his luck changed. Found as a hyper peppy stray puppy, he spent months in foster care. After he finally got adopted, his foster mom suffered a terrible injury that prevented her taking care of him. So with the help of 5 relay drivers and in cooperation with Buffalo Paws & Claws Animal Shelter we transported him to upstate N.Y. where he was adopted by a family with 9 children.
These kitties were from the sixth known litter of a feral cat eluding capture while living under an abandoned trailer for four years. Irresistably adorable, they quickly found homes, and mama cat discovered that sleeping on a Queen-sized bed between two humans beat independent living after all.
The hardest part of fostering kittens is giving them away once you finally find them new homes!
