Corvette Show; Aurora was adopted!

You may wonder what a Corvette show has to do with rescue. The answer is the Route 66 Corvette Club chose Heartland Humane Society as their charity to support during their annual Corvette Show this year. So several volunteers went to the Corvette show this past Sunday, and we brought some adoptable dogs and cats, and gave out information about Heartland. Everyone had a great time, and we received several donations and inquiries on adoptable animals. Since we were outside and the cars can be kind of loud, we debated on whether or not we should bring cats, or only dogs. It can be very scary for cats especially. We didn't want the cats to not be represented though - people need to know that Heartland rescues dogs and cats! So I brought Marco, my deaf cat, to the event. What a great fit - no loud noises to bother him, and he's such an easy-going cat anyway that it worked out great. Who knew that deaf cats could come in so handy? We also brought several dogs - my foster puppy Gator got to go, thanks to Angie C., one of our volunteers who brought him. She ended up taking care of him all day - even carrying him around when he was too tired to walk (it was all just an act, I think!) But he's a cute puppy who's fun to spoil, and he got a lot of attention. Also Frazier, the hound dog who is recovering from surgery, was there. And to round out the group, we brought Dash the Cattle Dog mix who loves everyone, and Luke, a gorgeous Australian Shepherd mix who wants nothing more than to sit in your lap and be petted. We met a lot of nice people, and one family dropped off some donations of dog toys that had been made by some day campers - the dogs love them! Here are a few photos from the event:

The little white blob on the table is Marco, my foster cat. In the back is Lori and Sue, trying to keep control of Dash, who had plenty of energy in spite of the warm day, and on the right is Donna with Frazier, Sue's foster dog.

Here's a close-up of Frazier, the wonderdog. He does swim therapy and walks on a treadmill while he recovers from his surgery to repair a broken leg.

Here is Gator pretending to be tired. :-)

Also Aurora was adopted this week, which just leaves Anastasia (Stasi) from my Disney litter. I thought she'd be the first of the litter to go since she has rather unique coloring, and instead she will be the last!
