As we moved from 2013 to 2014 and were thinking about what we hoped would be a better year ahead for ourselves, our families and loved ones, Wilson was out on the streets. He suffered from demodectic mange (the non-contagious type), a yeast infection in his skin, a double ear infection and double eye infection. Most of his fur was missing. All he had was a patch about the size of a nickel.
Sonya shared a "Happy Tail" - "I adopted Gizmo a year ago, March 21. I specifically adopted him with the goal of dog therapy in mind. While that training has gotten postponed due to various unexpected circumstances, I still do plan to begin training with him. He is such a sweetheart! His number one like is being held, loved, and adored by his human family. Next comes most any small squeaky toy. We all love him so much, taking him with us whenever we can. He's become quite the little camper along with our other dog.
Chris Wallace shared a "Happy Tail" - "This is our little girl Charlotte (was Smudge with you guys) with our kitty Oliver Twitch (that we adopted last year at NC State vet school). She has settled in wonderfully here at our house. She plays... for hours and hours every day and never falls short on energy! She is loving her fully fenced in back yard and play dates with other family pets.
Elizabeth shared a "Happy Tail": "Just wanted to show you how big Vasco (Phoenix) is getting! He's only eight months old now, but I think it's safe to say he loves his forever home! He greets my husband with this same amount of love and energy every day when he returns from work! Thank you a million times over!"
Stephanie shared a "Happy Tail". "Our family adopted Otis, formerly another name, from you in early September. He was an owner turn in due to destructive behavior. He is now well adjusted after a few minor incidents. He loves his big brothers. We cannot thank you enough for this feisty sweet boy!"
Magdalena shared a "Happy Tail" - "Levor (formerly SI), who has been with us since the first snow storm in January, doing what he does best which is looking super cute! We are so happy to have Levor in our family, he is a perfect kitty!"
We are so happy to report that our German Shepherd Bear has been adopted. It was love at first sight, and now Bear has a wonderful forever home. We caught this picture of Bear and his new Mom with Bear's new favorite ball.
Bethany shared this "Happy Tail": This is our baby Cooper after playing around the grill outside! We got him almost a year ago from the Georgia SPCA. Back then his name was Thomas! We love Cooper so much! Thanks to the amazing people at the SPCA for making our family complete!
We call this sweet girl Miracle because it is truly a miracle that she is still alive. She came to us from Taccoa-Stephens Humane Shelter, skin and bones, and with a litter of pups. It was soon discovered that her problems stemmed from a doggie version of a cleft palate, which in her case was a large whole in the roof of her mouth. This made it difficult to eat and could have been life threatening.
