Twelve Animals Found New Homes!
This weekend was a very busy one for our volunteer coordinator Dovie Browning and her volunteers! There were adoption events at PetSmart in Wichita and Petsense in Ponca City to attend and the organizer of Burden Days invited us to participate with a booth and walk adoptable animals in the parade.
We are so happy to report that during these events, 2 cats and 10 dogs found new families! Today, at Petsense, the adoption crew returned to the shelter without any animals--what a great success!
Remember River, the special needs pit girl whom we were looking for a home for? She found a new dad today in Ponca City! Tom visited with River at the event yesterday, because he was looking for a dog he could keep up with. He went home without her, but River was in his thoughts all night. He was so worried about her not finding a home, that he returned today to make sure she got that home today--River went home with Tom and his wife.
Another adoption was Bella, a senior Pekingese mix. Bella was longing for a place to spend her golden years, preferably in a lap. She found that lap today! The cute little dog with the overbite went home and will be a great companion for her new mom!
