Riley was adopted!

Riley, the sweet Jack Russel Terrorist Terrier mix, was adopted on Saturday!  She was adopted by the co-worker of another All Paws Rescue volunteer.  Riley now has her very own 12 year old boy, and a new brother dog named Skittles to play with.  Also one of my cat fosters was adopted on Saturday, so it was a good week for me.  I'm taking a break from bringing home another dog to foster - at least for a few days. 

Here are a few of the dogs that were at our adoption event at PetCo on Saturday...

This is Rebel, chillin' out with his foster dad Brian. 

This is Pegg... she is the sweetest little Basset Hound mix.  She was turned in with a broken leg that had to be amputated, but she gets along really well on just three legs. 

And then of course there was Ziggy.  This is what Ziggy looks like with his ears inside out.  I'm sure you've been wondering.  Now you know.

I flip my ears inside out when I'm hot. It's built in doggie air conditioning.

Haha! Sometimes my mom and dad turn Ranger's ears inside out like that, too. He is not amused.

And yippee for Riley! That's Most Wonderful news!

What is the typical time frame that an animal gets adopted?
