Pupdate: Iggy

🐾💕GOOD NEWS PUPDATE FROM IGGY’S MOM🐾💕

“We moved to Washington State in July! We’ve had Iggy for 10 months now. We just celebrated her 5th birthday. I can only imagine how many times she was yelled at or hit for ripping apart a baby (stuffed animal). Well, she’s living her best life now. She loves to rip apart babies (the little monkeys are her favorite), chase balls, and chew Nylabones. Iggy is also a heck of a hiker! We love her as she is!
Michael and I adore her and her mohawk!

Iggy did so great on the move. They all did – 2 dogs and 2 cats. 3400 miles in an SUV. 8 hotels. Then a VRBO for 11 days and then an extended stay hotel for a weeks Whew! They love the new house and almost half acre of land. Iggy also loves chasing all of the critters in the yard. Can’t wait for them to see snow!”

He slept in her room last night. She said she loves him! My daughter is virtual for school so she keeps Bruno to herself in her room during class and took him out to play every time she had a break. LOL. 

We have been blessed with two amazing rescue dogs.”

“Hi JoAnn, 
Thank you for finding me my forever home! The past 5 weeks have been the most glorious weeks of my life. I am overloaded with toys and so much luv. I go on many walks a day, play til I drop and I get to sleep on mommy and daddy’s bed at nite. I couldn’t ask for more. I’m the happiest dog ever! I like my new sister but she doesn’t bother much with me. I guess it’s cause she’s getting old and doesn’t have my energy. 

Thank you again,
Zoey”

Pupdate: Hamilton

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

“Just wanted to touch base with you and give you a little update on our Hamilton! I can’t believe it’s been 4 months with our boy, really feels like he’s always been a part of our family! Hamilton is such a love, and has made our lives 100x better. Hamilton spends a lot of time with his best friend Maggie, my parents standard poodle, they became inseparable from day 1! Hamilton has become quite the daddys boy, he gets so excited when Luis gets home and doesn’t settle down until Luis lifts him up and cuddles him like a baby. Hamilton loves the dog park and we try to go at least 2-3 times a week for him to have a good run and make new friends. We have been working virtually with a trainer, because of the virus, and Hamilton has become much more of a gentleman. His barking has improved and walking on a leash is getting much better! Our boy had his first good grooming and looks like a new boy, his shorter haircut also revealed a heart shape on his chest! 
Hamilton has really been such a great distraction and comfort for both of us. He keeps me laughing everyday with his antics. Dogs really are so special and such a gift! I am so thankful for your rescue group for bringing my boy to me ❤️“

In Memory of…Lovey

This little kitty was living on the streets with a homeless woman. She was very I’ll and it appeared that she had been a while. As soon as we heard of this situation we picked her up and took her to the emergency. She was having difficulties breathing and was extremely lethargic. When she arrived, she was in full kidney failure and we could not save her. It was agreed that there was only humane thing to do – end her suffering. Before she left this world we named her Lovey and our volunteer Gina stayed with her and showed Lovey kindness and love. She had one final kiss before she passed. RIP angel.
