Love at first sight doesn’t happen very often, but it did a couple of weeks ago. A few minutes before the AniMeals office was set to close, a man walked in with a dirty little pooch under his arm who just had to find a new home. She had belonged to the man’s mother and after she passed away, Daisy was taken into his care. Although he wanted to keep her, he had a few dogs already and thought Daisy could find a better home elsewhere. So our office manager (and this blog writer) decided to take her home until she could find a permanent family.
I immediately gave her a bath, some fresh food and water, and a couple of toys to play with. Timid at first, she opened up quickly and decided that I was her “person” and her permanent home was MY home. She met my two blind and deaf dogs, Baron & Stoney, and immediately became best friends with them. She has not let me out of her sight since the minute she was brought in and really enjoys coming to work with me everyday. She is the best dog anyone can ask for and I’m honored to add a third (and final!) pooch to my pack.
Welcome home, Daisy! Stop by the AniMeals office Monday through Friday to visit her. She would love to say hi to you!
One of our favorite cats, Vincent, got adopted yesterday. They say that the animal chooses the family and these pictures prove it! Vincent sat next to Daniel for about twenty minutes and wasn’t about to move for anything. Congrats on your new home with the Leary family, Vincent!
We received a great email today from a new owner of two of our kittens!
This is Tiffany, and my husband and I adopted 2 little kittens from you guys last Sunday from Petsmart to make our family grow from 2 dogs and 2 cats to 2 dogs and 4 cats!! I wanted to update you guys on these two’s new home and adventure. They both took to our dogs right away. I’m thinking that was because we had the dogs with us that day as well so they met them early! the younger (7months) of our two cats took to them as well having some new play buddies really helps keep him active with lots of play time. Our older cat is still trying to get use to seeing little ones around. Not being the social one of the bunch hen sniffs then leaves or lays down while they play with his tail.. 🙂 Both Mr.Jingles and Precious love to let us know first thing in the morning (4am) that its time to get up but playing with our feet or purring and rubbing against our faces. I’ve attached a few pictures that I took with my cell phone of them in their new home.
Today I received a cute email from Mills, a WorkForce/AniMeals employee, who adopted Hope last week. Mills agreed to foster Hope until she was old enough to be spayed but after Hope’s surgery, we never saw her again! Hope, now named Baby, couldn’t be happier with her new home. Congrats Baby!
Our favorite kitten, Brutis, was finally adopted last week. We received this email from Julie, his new Mom, this morning!
I thought you might like to see how little Brutis is doing (we actually have renamed him Nanook, which means polar bear in Eskimo. It seemed fitting as we got him on the day it first snowed and because he is so completely different from a polar bear :-).
He seems fitting right on Halloween!
He is being a sweetheart and sleeping with us every night. Pinky, my cat, is getting to accept him and they have been chasing each other around the apartment. She is still not completely adjusted, but I think she will over time.
I was worried he might not be cuddliest, but as he is getting to know us, he has become more and more loving and is always purring.
Anyways, just wanted to let you guys know how he was doing and share a couple of pictures.
The art show at Bernice’s Bakery last Friday was a huge success! It was a great turnout and most of the paintings were bought on the spot. Be sure to stop by Bernice’s this month to see all the awesome art work. Thank you to everyone who made this project a success. An extra special thanks goes out to Feather and all her students who made this fundraiser possible!
