Join us here each Monday as Regional Vice President Kathy Kreyling shares stories from the Adoption Center. Check out our Available Dogs to see who’s still waiting for their forever home.
The first dog that was adopted was a sweet little girl that came back to us because of some health problems. Luckily, she has responded to the treatments she has been getting and she’s getting healthier every day (and gaining a few much needed pounds)!! She has found a new family which already includes one of our Greys who used to be known as Kevin and is now known as Seymour. They all welcomed their new addition, Bella, who is now known as Busy Bee (Busy for short)!!
Next, one of our employees and her partner have moved to a house and were ready to add another grey to their family (they already have Lang). They have had their eyes on one of our special boys who has been with us for quite a while. He came to us with an injury to his leg and that needed to heal before he could leave us. Thank you to the team of volunteers who have come to the kennel every day of the week for the last few months to get this guy on the Theraplate — that, plus the guidance from his doctors, has helped speed up his recovery and he’s finally ready for his new home. His new family couldn’t wait to officially make Figgy part of the family!!!
Sometimes people decide immediately which dog they want and sometimes it takes a while to figure things out. This particular couple fell into the latter category. They have had dogs, but since this would be the first Greyhound they welcomed to their home, they wanted to take their time to think things through and be as sure as they could that they were making the right decision. They saw quite a few dogs and quickly narrowed the list down to two big boys both of which were very good at schmoozing and worming their way into their potential parents’ hearts. These two dogs had many similar characteristics which is why the people had a difficult time making their final decision. But, when all was said and done, Barry was heading off to his new home.
