“Hi Auntie Jo!!

I’ve been thinking about you and I asked dad to help me write a note to you.

How are you doing during these trying times? I hope you’re safe and sound. We’re ok here. Boy!! I’m loving all the family time we’re having since mom and dad are home. Please know that you are always in my prayers and I thank you and God every day for putting our family together.

Well Auntie Jo, that’s all for now, dad is getting ready to make pancakes (whatever that is) and get ready for our church’s streaming service for today.( I really like those, although I must admit that I don’t get a lot of the new words that I hear.

I’m sending you lots of wet kisses and lots of licks cause I love you.

Adopt Me: Lucky

🐾💕PLEASE READ & SHARE TO FIND THIS VERY SPECIAL GUY A NEW LOVING FOREVER HOME🐾💕

VERO BEACH, FL: Lucky the 8-9 year old 72 lbs Labrador’s “Backstory”.

Background:
Six years ago, Lucky’s first dad became legally blind and had to move from a home into a condo. Unfortunately, he was only allowed to take his service dog. Lucky lost his home and his beloved owner.

Destiny for Dogs found Lucky his new mom, Betty. It was love at first sight which lasted for six years. Lucky and Betty were inseparable until she became ill and passed away. Lucky was homeless again and lost his beloved mom, Betty. This was just heartbreaking for everyone who touched Lucky and Betty.

This “Happily Ever After” photo of Betty and Lucky was taken six years ago during this joyful and tearful adoption. We remember this day like it was yesterday. With tears of joy in her eyes, Betty said, “I am so lucky to have my boy, Lucky. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing him into my life.” Sadly, Betty’s previous dog passed away. Betty’s friend gave her a hamster. Betty prayed for another dog and her prayers were answered by Lucky.

Lucky is a handsome, sweet, loving, smart, energetic, 8-9 year old, 72lbs Labrador mix male. He is fully vetted, neutered up to date on shots, microchipped, housebroken, good with dogs his size, loves people, older kids, good in car and on leash (loves to go for long walks). Lucky is high energy so needs a fenced in yard with lots of room to run, play or a active person and or family that also loves long walks or even jogging. Lucky is such a happy, healthy guy whose tail never stops wagging. However he is not good with cats.

Please open your heart and home to this loving and deserving guy. For additional information or to meet and fall in love with Lucky, please contact JoAnn via Facebook, text 561-313-2005 or joann@destinyfordogs.com

Thank you 🐾💕

🐾💕GOOD NEWS PUPDATE FROM BUNNY’S MOM🐾💕

“Someone got a new fancy bed, new clothes and is so spoiled.

🌹Bunny has been one of the greatest gifts God gave me. She is extremely loveable and so good to Sherman🌹”

In Memory Of: Judy Blake Walters

💗🙏Written by Brittany Mason In Honor of Zoey’s human mommy, Judy Blake Walters . RIP 🙏 ❤️

“I always loved animals since I was little and I knew I would help them I just wasn’t sure how. One day I started researching local rescues and I reached out to JoAnn Lewis Goodrich of Destiny for Dogs. I explained to her my love for animals and that I’d like to help. She said there is actually a little senior girl, Zoey, who was a stray down in Miami and she is sitting in a kennel. My mom and I couldn’t let her sit in there any longer so the next day she was sleeping in bed next to me 🤗

One morning like we had done before, we brought Zoey out to coffee. This time was different because a very sweet lady saw her and instantly fell in love with her and I knew Zoey felt the same way. Just like that she was adopted by this amazing family 💝

Zoey’s human mommy had been battling cancer, but her husband told me that since they adopted Zoey he had seen a light in his wife that he hadn’t seen in a long time.

Judy you were an amazing person filled with so much love and compassion. I’m sending love and prayers for your family while they grieve such a sweet soul.

I will be forever grateful to you, I couldn’t have asked for a better mommy for Zoey ❤️“

Pupdate: Ruby

🐾💕GOOD NEWS PUPDATE ON RUBY THE SENIOR POM FROM HER NEW MOM🐾💕

♥️“Ruby is such a love. I’m so grateful to Destiny for Dogs for bringing us together, and thank you for saving her.”♥️

Ruby the senior pom whose dad could no longer care for her. He took Ruby to Peggy Adams who could not intake her. Someone posted a photo of Ruby and her owner with a comment. Michelle Martin saw the post and immediately contacted Ruby’s owner to say she would foster. It was a long process to get Ruby healthy, plus she needed to be vetted, spayed and a much needed dental. Poor Ruby girl also had a high level hear murmur. Dr. Linda Abbott, Animal Clinic at Wellington Reserve ran tests and placed Ruby on three heart meds to relieve her discomfort.

Michelle loved and nurtured to get Ruby where she needed to be health wise and emotionally. It took months before Ruby could receive vaccines plus even longer to spay and have dental. Thanks to Dr. Abbott, staff and Michelle, this special little girl was able to have a second chance at life in a new loving forever home with her extraordinary new mom.

🌹Special thanks to all. “It takes a Village!”🌹

Cat Tales: Sissy

Sissy is a special type of rescue. She actually went up to our Destiny for Dogs rescuers as they were out walking their dogs! Destiny for Dogs took her in as her nose was badly infected and inflamed.

She is all healed up now and by the looks of it, the hair on her nose will not be growing back. But she is still super cute in our book! Sissy is currently In Motion Builder’s office cat. Were she likes to greet everyone that comes into their office. This is one incredibly friendly cat! And as you can tell from the pictures she is very silly and relaxed.

If you are interested in adopting Sissy, please contact JoAnn at 561-313-2005.
