LUCKY HAS FOUND HIS PERFECT FOREVER HOME.

Wonderful News! (a note from Jeanette) My bald little foster Pit Bull, Lucky, who was horribly neglected & abused has found his perfect Forever Home! Lucky's new Mom, Rebecca, could not be a more perfect fit. Rebecca sadly lost her Pit Bull (a tripod), Teddy, to cancer earlier this month, just one month shy of his 11th birthday.  Rebecca saw Lucky on a rescue website and told me she kept coming back to his sweet face, a face only a mother could love. Lucky now has the life he deserves with lots of love, a very nice home, a shady, back yard, goes for walks, rides in the car and even gets to sleep in bed! He is receiving excellent medical care and continues to get better with each day. His new nickname is 'Little Piggy'. To those of you who were fortunate enough to have met Lucky, and to those of you who assisted in cross-posting and networking to get his story out, I sincerely want to thank you for your time, encouragement and support in helping Lucky to find his new Forever Home with Rebecca.  He is truly a 'Lucky Dog'
Thank you everybody, Jeanette
Jeanette, we couldn't be happier - thanks for sharing Lucky's 'Little Piggy's heartwarming rescue with us.

They call me Daffy - i have to find a home by June 7th!


URGENT! BY JUNE 7! WHO AM I? My name is DAFFY, short for Daffodil. My foster family loves me and are very sad that they can't keep me. So I have to find a new home by June 7th. Even though I'm older and blind, I get around pretty well. I like living with other dogs, especially a gentle friend to show me the ropes in a new place, maybe even a seeing eye dog that I could be buddies with. And although kids are great, I do better with adults in a quiet, single level home. I'm a special dog looking for a special person or family to love. Is it you?
Name: DAFFY - Dog; Female; Yellow Lab; Age: 11 y/o; Spayed, healthy; Special conditions: Blind
WHERE AM I? West Chester, Pennsylvania
HOW CAN YOU HELP ME? Application (www.atpar.org), adoption fee, and home visit required. Thanks on behalf of Daffy.

The Daily Tail is a daily blog about Daniela Caride’s life with three dogs, three cats, her husband and the countless other animals she meets. Daniela’s life is all about animals. She walks her own dogs, dog sits for others and volunteers for animal programs. When Daniela is not picking up poop, buying pet food, or studying somebody’s training methods, she’s usually writing. One thing is for sure — she never runs out of material. That’s why The Daily Tail includes dog and cat stories from Daniela and other writers. The blog also carries reviews, fun posts as well as tips on health, safety and how to have a pet on a budget.
Please take time to browse around her blog - its time well spent. Thank you Daniela!!

RESCUED! WHO AM I? Control number 6-8-11-1  Not sure of my name yet but I am already spoiled rotten. I love being with people, especially being held in your arms and carried around. If you open my cage, I will jump into your arms.  When I got here, I was bleeding from my nose. They took me to the vet, and she said it is because my teeth are so dirty, my gums are infected. They have me on medicine, and I am doing better.  The vet says I need to have my teeth cleaned and may have to get some teeth pulled.  I am super, super sweet, and need someone to rescue me by 6/19.

LOOPY HAS A NEW HOME!!!! ADOPTED!

ADOPTED!! WHO AM I? My name is LOOPY. My mom passed away and now I need a new home. I'm an old girl, but I love people and animals. Please help me find a good home to live the rest of my days in. I'm all by myself now because the place I'm at doesn't like animals. I really need your help.
Name: Loopy - Dog; Female; Lab mix; Color: black; Age: 10 y/o; Weight: appr 60 lbs; Special note: senior dog, having some trouble getting around, slow moving. See note below.
WHERE AM I? Long Island, NY
NOTE FROM LEA: I am in desperate need of help. My mother passed away last week and left behind 3 dogs and several cats. My building does not allow dogs, and I am not financially able to move to a new apartment right now, so I am taking the cats, but need to find homes for the dogs. A shelter has agreed to take 2 of the dogs back (my mom adopted them from there), but I need to find home for her Lab mix, Loopy. It is breaking my heart because I love these dogs, but I can only do so much. Loopy is staying with my sister for now, but she is not an animal lover, and is rarely home, and really just does not care.  I live 1 1/2 away (in the city), and do not have a car, so I cannot go there  often. 
... I do not think she would last long in a shelter... she is having trouble getting up and down, and has slowed down considerably. I really want her to be able to live out her final years (possibly months) in peace. She lived her entire life with my mother, who was home most of the time, and is not used to being alone. She loves people and other dogs, and is good with cats and kids. She is super sweet, a bit goofy, and loves food and going for walks. She is housebroken, but really needs to be on a schedule to avoid any accidents. She cannot walk up and down too many stairs, so would need a place on the ground floor or with an elevator. She has been so depressed since my mom died. She is about 60lbs (this is just a guesstimate).

MY NAME IS GRACE AND THIS IS MY PUP COOPER AND WE'RE SURVIVORS.


BOTH ADOPTED!!! WHO AM I?  My name is GRACE and I'm a survivor. Even with 3 legs, I get along just fine. And I love to give hugs when I sit up. I don't remember what happened to it, but they say I might have lost my leg after being hit by a car. When they found us, my other front paw had been recently hurt too, probably a car again and it might need to be fixed. But nothing slows me down and I've taken good care of my pup Cooper. I have all my shots, and they say I'm healthy. I love other dogs, people and children. Sometimes I'm a little shy around men at first, but it only takes a few pets and scratches on my head for me to warm up to them. Please give me a chance to show you what a wonderful member of your family I can be. I promise to give you lots of love and affection.

ADOPTED!!

ADOPTED!!  WHO AM I?  I don't know my name, but I've been stray for awhile. It was pretty scary being out in those terrible tornados and storms. I was taken in by a really nice couple that found me wandering around. They think I might have lost my right front paw in a trap. They've given me so much TLC and attention, bathed and shaved me, clipped my toenails and got rid of all the ticks. They wanted to keep me, but they have 2 dogs already and the landlord says no more. Julie said I'm very sweet and well behaved, even better than her dogs. I like being outside better than indoors and I'm really a mellow fellow. Please give me a chance. I made it through all the storms with only 3 legs. I can be a great dog if you'll let me show you.  NAME UNKNOWN  -- Dog; Male; Shepherd Mix; age unknown;  Special conditions: missing front right paw from injury
