Success Stories 2017

Now into our sixth year with second chance pals, we would like to thank each of our small group of dedicated fosterers and supporters, who have given their heartfelt love, time and financial support so this program can go forward. To see heartwarming success stories for our previous years ... go to:

Adult spayed/neutered pets are continuing to be highly desirable, many times valued for their stable, mature-loving and quiet ways, filled with comfort, patience, grace and loyalty.

At this time, our goal of calling attention to the plight of adult animals in our shelter is being realized. As Pets for Patriots comes on board, our own Rolling Rescue and additional rescue sources, we are heartened that older companion animals are becoming more valued and are being adopted. Since there are now
a variety of ways that second chance pals will be finding their forever homes, we reserve success stories from here on out for those animals who are either scp specific or have unusual or difficult adoption stories we can highlight. The photos do not include all adult animals rescued . . .

Please keep our adult shelter animals in mind when adding to your household members!

2/17/17: In just a couple of days, Sandy has really perked up. On top of everything else, she also had a yeast infection in her ears, which is now being treated. She's a real trooper!

2/9/17: Sandy has had her mass removed and is recovering well. She is Heartworm positive and will have her treatment next week on Monday and Tuesday and be ready to come back on Wednesday.

She is really a nice dog. We need to find her a foster spot; of course she is a bigger dog, but she's house-trained.

2/8/17: Sandy is a super-sweet Chocolate Lab that came into the shelter with an awful hernia. She's scheduled for surgery.



SILK - FEMALE - DOMESTIC, SHORT-HAIRED CAT - 14 YEARS

Go to Top Go to Bottom
SCP

3/4/17: Silk….has been adopted from the shelter by a woman from Sweetwater who saw her at PetSmart…..post-adoption comment “Silk must have been much loved by her previous owner. She is very loving, enjoys cuddling and being held. She is absolutely adorable.” She will be getting her dental done on Thursday.

2/24/17: Silk is a beautiful DSH, black cat with a little tuft of white on her chest. Her former person had to surrender her due to her own health, she was no longer able to care for Silk and Cocoa as they deserved. She has to be an Indoor Cat ONLY…especially since she is a senior, has always been inside, is 14 years old, and is front de-clawed. She deserves to continue to live a safe, cushy, heated/air-conditioned life. She is a wonderful girl who just wants to hang out and keep your lap warm. Thanks to Second Chance Pals we were able to get Silk a complete senior check-up and she is scheduled for a dental cleaning on March 16th, 2017. Her blood work came back perfect. Perfect litter box manners.



COCOA - MALE - DOMESTIC, SHORT-HAIRED CAT - 12 YEARS

SCP

3/9/17: Cocoa-was sent to Atlanta today.

2/24/17: Cat people talk to their cats….and their cats answer…Cocoa is quite the conversationalist! Cocoa is a very sweet and handsome buff and white boy with an adorable pink nose. He is about 12 years old and looking for his retirement lap. His former person had to surrender him due to her own health, she was no longer able to care for Cocoa and Silk as they deserved. He has to be an Indoor Cat ONLY…especially since he is a senior, has always been inside and is front de-clawed. He deserves to continue to live a safe, cushy, heated/air-conditioned life. Thanks to Second Chance Pals we were able to get Cocoa a complete senior check-up; his blood work came back with no real issues and his teeth are in great shape. Perfect litter box manners.



MUFFIN - DOG

Go to Top Go to Bottom

SCP
1/30/17: Muffin is doing very well after her surgery, and her skin is healing nicely. As a result, she is a much happier dog and is even getting playful. Marcy believes that Muffin is getting too attached to them and should be put up for adoption asap. She feels bad that Muffin is learning to trust them, and then will be displaced once again. One curious thing she wanted me to pass on is that Muffin has not barked once since she arrived, not a sound. Very sweet dog and smart.

2/2/17: Muffin is going to Louise Legacy rescue on Friday, 2/3.



AXEL & JACKIE - DOGS

Go to Top Go to Bottom

2/2/17: Axel and Jackie from the SCP program are all going to Louise Legacy rescue on Friday, 2/3.
