Happy Tails

This is our Happy Tails Page. Whenever we have successful adoptions, we ask the new families to e-mail us with updates. Please take a moment to read the Happy endings of a few of our orphans.


Rita 003Hello Donna, Nancy, Nicole and others,

Just a note to tell you Rita is doing great. She took to us immediately and seems very happy. She is so smart and surprises us a couple times a day. She knows when she needs to go potty (only two accidents), my oldest rewards her with a treat only after she sits and gives her paw, and also loves to play fetch inside. She is a VERY loving little girl and we are very glad to have her. Thanks for all that you do!

Update: We just wanted to give you an update on Rita. She loves her new home and is adjusting well. She had her first vet appointment, her vet is Old Marple Veterinary Hosp., Dr. Catherine Tannert. She did really well. They did a DAPPD-Series, Lyme Vaccine, KCV Intranasal Annual Booster and nail trim. The Doc says she is very well tempered. We love having her here and are so happy to be her family thanks to you. We will send you updates and pic soon. Keep up your great work.

P..S.-Rita says she misses all of you!!!!!!!

Rosie (Now Known as Kila)

rosieHello all,

Just wanted to give you and update on Rosie. Her new name is Kila, which is Scottish for lovely, which she fits to a tee. She's absolutely wonderful! She's comepletely potty-trained, walks well (except when she sees other animals that she feels need to play with her), extremely lovable, and the best friend anyone could ask for. She sleeps with us every night, under the covers! She likes to be right up next to us. Kila has an endless amount of energy to play, but knows when it's quite time and likes to lay on her bed on her own accord.

I wish I knew more about her history, because someone obviously took care of her and took the time to train her. The only problem we have so far is with the cats. She just wants to sniff them and get to know them, but they run away from her and she thinks they're playing and chases them. The cats are slowly getting more curious and are not running away, so she just looks at them to see what they're gonna do.

I've included some pics to show you what a vicious pitbull she is. We're very scared of her ;-) Thanks again for choosing us as her new parents. We truly are the lucky ones in this endeavor.

Brian, Lauren, and Kila


ht-ninaDear Almost Home Family,

Dana told me you called to ask about me last week, and says she wants to bring me to visit you on Saturday! (wag wag smile smile)

I love my new home, but miss all the love I got from you guys, and of course I miss all my boyfriends- so I used my puppy-dog eyes to convince her to bring me for a visit. She wants to know if 1-1:30 this Satuday would be a good time for us to come? I want to say hello to as many of people as I can! I'm so excited, I have to go chase my tail now. Let us know if that's a good time to come.

snuffles and kisses, Nina


The shelter could always use monetary donations to help with the care and placement of our animals.  Anything you could spare would be greatly appreciated!
