It’s here! The debut of my new series, Furry Friday. I am so excited to be able to feature dogs and cats throughout the country awaiting their forever home. Hopefully, I will inspire my readers to look into adopting a furry friend or volunteering at some of the amazing shelters and rescues that dedicate their time to saving animals.
Our first feature is Toby from White Shepard Rescue in FL. He is currently in GA, at his vet’s, where he was dropped off to be euthanized. The vet persuaded the owner to surrender him and he has been at the vet’s office being cared for ever since. Thank goodness for the compassion of his veterinarian. Toby is heart worm positive, but currently receiving treatment. His story struck me because he is a 10 year old dog, that from his description, seems to have never been loved. Despite that, he has a sweet temperament and trusts humans. It never ceases to amaze me, the forgiving nature of animals. This dog was trained as a guard dog. Who knows what he went through in his life, but to trust humans again, and have a gentle nature, is simply amazing. This guy deserves the best home he can get. To read about Toby, or get more information, please visit his profile on Petfinder.
This little kitty caught my attention. She is another inspiring story. She is currently at Second Chance Animal Shelter in Killeen, TX. Melissa is a 6-7 year old domestic short-hair female. She looks to me to be at least part, Tortoiseshell. Her post describes her as “one of the friendliest cats you’ll ever meet”. She had one eye surgically removed due to damage before arriving at the shelter, but this doesn’t stop her. For all that she has been through, it amazes me that she is described in her post as super friendly. She had damage to her eye but remains sweet, playful, and loving. Please visit Melissa’s profile on Petfinder for more info on this sweet kitty.
Roscoe looks like such a sweetheart. I can’t get enough of his adorable face. His post says that he is less than 2 years old but has already had 3 or 4 homes. Poor buddy. Being bounced around so much, at such a young age, can be devastating. Despite moving frequently, he “has really thrived and his confidence has grown by leaps and bounds”. For more information on Roscoe look at his Petfinder profile or contact Pacific NW JRT Rescue in Snohomish, WA.
There are thousands and thousands of dogs and cats throughout the country who are looking for homes. It is impossible to feature each dog. Here is list of a few other furry friends: Tyson from North Dakota, Princess from Maine, Taffy from South Carolina, Simba from Tennessee, and Taz from Mississippi (URGENT).
I use petfinder.com to search shelters and rescues throughout the country for participants in Furry Friday. This is my go-to resource for finding animals available for adoption throughout the country. We used this tool in many of the rescues I worked with to find good candidates to come into rescue. I’ll do a post about Petfinder next week.
If you are a shelter or rescue and would like to be featured, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org Again, Furry Friday is in no way sponsored by petfinder or any shelter or rescue, it is simply my opinion and my way of showing support to all the thousands of pets awaiting their forever homes.
