Dear CARE, I fostered five dogs through you before becoming an official "foster failure" and adopting one for myself. When I went to the shelter to pick up my sixth foster dog, I thought I had one chosen, until I came upon this black and white dog that just looked so happy. When I first opened the door to my car, she jumped in, sat down obediently and smiled at me- immediately I knew I had picked a good dog. Two months later, she was officially adopted by me and now it has been almost a year since the adoption. Scout is an amazing dog- she is loyal, well behaved, and absolutely loves all people- she even got excited when she saw a scarecrow from a distance! Thank you for introducing me to this wonderful program where I was able to get to know so many wonderful dogs and then find my own forever pup. Keep up the great work! - Tina Noronha
"Psy (formerly known as Chet) was adopted by Mia in May 2013. He is currently doing very well and is being thoroughly pampered by his mom. When he first came to CARE, he had some problems with his eyes that required quite a bit of medication and tender love and care. Now that he is with his forever home, his eyes look great and he has all the TLC he could ever need. Thanks CARE!"
I just thought I'd give you a little update on Rose. She is doing great! She spends her days playing and looking out the windows. She has a toy on a stick that she carries around with her everywhere. I usually wake up to find it laying on the bed. She's also learned how to play fetch! Whenever she wants to play she'll bring one of her mice to me (she'll only play with two specific toys) and she'll play for about fifteen minutes at a time. I'm also working on training her to sit on command... that one is still a work in progress, haha. But she's getting there! She knows she can't get her treats or food until she sits down, sometimes it just takes a little while. She's a pretty smart (but ornery) little kitty! I've switched her off of kitten food, my little baby is growing up! She'll be a year old at the end of the month. Hard to believe how fast the time has flown! Kaitlyn
Just thought you might like to see how Gypsy is adjusting to her new family. Everybody loves her and she has even been to church Bible study with me. As Always, Sandy 6/10/12: Gypsy and I have relocated to apartment living and she is the princess of all the residents. Everyone loves her especially me! She is such a gentle sweet spirit. Her recent vet visit shows her as healthy and spoiled rotten (by their staff as well). I am attaching pictures of her and thanking you again for the rescue of me by her on November 16, 2007. As Always Sandy
We thought you would like to have an update on Chip, (formerly, Callie). Chip is loving life with us. We take her on three half-hour walks a day---rain or shine. She loves it! The first week Chip was with us, we taught her how to walk with us and not choke herself by pulling on the leash. She took to it in one afternoon, and has been walking like a pro ever since. We recently entered Chip into a Cutest Pet contest at our apartment complex, and she won: a gift card and bragging rights for life! It seems everywhere we take Chip, someone recognizes her. Even when we are at the grocery store, someone will stop us and ask how Chip is doing. She is very popular! One woman commented to us, "I can recognize all the dogs around here, but Chip's the only one I really remember." When we took her to her vet visit the first week, the vet commented on two outstanding traits: Her muscle tone and her beautiful shiny coat. And we all got a kick out of Chip's little idiosyncrasy of walking on her back legs---the never-ending try to reach the cookies on the counter. Chip's favorite part of the day is definitely when Brandon comes home from work: She runs to the front door from outside to greet him and they play fetch and wrestle and go for a very long walk down to the park together while Mandy makes dinner. She cuddles with us all evening on the couch, if she's not curled up in her doggie bed. We recently discovered that Chip loves the water. I don't think she'd ever seen a creek before, let alone waded around in it. True to her personality, she didn't hesitate to charge right in a nearby park creek, trying to smell the water, and snuffing to get the water out of her nose. It took a little getting used to: she tried to bite it, and then when that didn't work, she sat down and took a tinkle in it. But every time we come near a gentle pond or a creek, Chip wants nothing more than to go bounding and splashing in. Mandy loves having Chip with her throughout the day. Since she works from home, Chip is rarely left alone and always has a playmate to turn to when a nap in the sunshine or chasing after robins has lost its charm. This picture is Chip's "Oh, hi Mom, this is awkward; I know I'm not supposed to be sleeping on the bed" face. We love our little rascal! We are so thankful for Chip, and so thankful we found her on care.rescuegroups.org! We hope you enjoyed this little update.
