Great Adoption Weekend!

My foster cat Simon was adopted on Thursday evening.  He went home with a young couple who are very excited to have a new member of the family.  Then today Tiggr went to his new home!  He was adopted by a single lady who recently lost her sixteen year old cat.  Each one will be an only cat and I think they'll do great in their new homes.  As if the two cat adoptions were not exciting enough, today we had a great adoption day at PetSmart as three dogs found homes, and one more is pending adoption (after a home visit).  First is Hunter, a large black lab that was most likely going to be euthanized if his foster mom had not pulled him from animal control.  The foster family adopted him and he is doing great in his new home.  The other two adoptions were both unexpected but people who were shopping just fell in love with them when they saw them, so they were in the right place at the right time.  Bailey the Chocolate Lab puppy was adopted, and Polly my foster Chihuahua was also adopted!   Arnold the pit bull/manatee also received an application for adoption and will hopefully be adopted pending a home visit. It is wonderful to see so many pets getting into homes.  

Now that we have some more openings for cats at PetSmart, I'm going to be sending Brie, Sorbet and Belle up to PetSmart so they will have more opportunities to be seen.  That will only leave me with Cleo, Ziggy and Kira and her kittens left here at home.  For now.  

I did manage to bring home two extra puppies, just for the weekend.  I was kind of surprised that neither of these cute puppies was adopted at the event today, but I'm sure it won't take long until they too are adopted!

What a great adoption weekend. Lots of pups and kittens going to new homes for Easter is a very good thing.

Those two pups are very cute and should find homes quickly.

Hope the weather has been good to you. It's been raining here for days now. Lots of soggy dogs wishing they could play outside.
