Weekly Adoption Recap July,11th!


Happy Tail: Dilly

They choose us! I always say that and I really believe it’s true!

It definitely was for a longtime Hallmark Channel viewer named Terri Walsh. Terri was at home when she turned on “Home & Family” and saw little Daisy who was up for adoption through The Furgotten Rescue.

Terri was a huge dog lover and always had two golden retrievers. Unfortunately, a few months ago, one of them passed away. Terri contemplated the idea of just having a single dog….but her Golden Retriever named Sage didn’t agree.

Sage wasn’t doing well after the loss of her best friend and was showing signs of self destruction. That was the moment it clicked and Terri decided to follow up and find out more information on Daisy!

When Carol Novello decided to leave corporate America, she didn’t realized she’d have such pushback about helping animals!

“Why not help people?” was a question she consistently encountered…

Her amazing answer…

Helping animals DOES help people! It’s a MUTUAL RESCUE!!!

That outlook has led her to a wonderful career as the President of the Humane Society of Silicon Valley and the author of the book “Mutual Rescue.”

When Pets Foster Pets!!!

When we use the term “foster parent”, we’re usually referring to a human fostering an animal…

Samantha is the Cat Behavior and Enrichment Lead at Best Friends in Los Angeles, so you can imagine she comes across many cute kitties that need help. She quickly noticed that some of the adult cats in her center weren’t doing well and needed some extra socialization…so she decided to bring them home..

That’s when an AMAZING thing happened…

Watch below to hear how her special needs kitty took over her foster duties and why it’s helped dozens of kitties find their forever homes!

Shep’s Place: A Sanctuary For Senior Dogs

Every single day hundreds of senior pets are dumped at animal shelters across the country. It’s a horrific phenomenon showing no signs of slowing down.

Oftentimes, these dogs and cats have been with their families for a number of years and are left in utter confusion when they suddenly wind up in a cold cell without familiar faces or love.

The worst part?? Most senior animals stand a small chance of getting adopted and ever leaving the shelter. That’s why wonderful people like Dr. Russell Clothier deserve to be celebrated!

Please watch below to learn all about him and his amazing senior dog sanctuary!!!
