Well, this week has taken a long time to get going in terms of adoptions. We have had plenty of dogs arriving, sadly, far more than usual. So obviously some people are getting ready for Christmas in the worst possible way.
Still at last we have our first adoptions of the week. Three of them, in fact.
First off we said goodbye to Mae. She arrived earlier this month, supposedly having been found and taken in after the floods. The unlikelihood of this does not alter the fact that Mae needed a new home, and although it has taken a bit longer than we expected, today she finally left for a new life. It can be difficult homing pups when we have no idea of their breed. Either Mae was starved when she was young and will now grow, or she will remain petite. It was important to find an owner who was happy with either scenario, and it looks like Mae has hit the jackpot.
Next we said farewell to another pup, Tess. She was brought in last week and was lucky enough to be taken home by employee Vincent. Today was time for him to say goodbye, as Tess left for a new life, but he still has her sister Betty to look after until she, too, finds a home. She is a bit bigger than Tess and is also a ball of energy, but is just as adorable, so if you are interested in a pup, Vincent is your man! Many thanks to him for looking after little Tess so well.
We are also over the moon to say that Kalia has a new home. She was adopted last month and brought back immediately, for health reasons (the owner, not the dog). We were all starting to wonder if this little girl’s luck would ever change. But today she left the refuge for what we all hope is the last time.
Let’s hope for more good news before this week comes to an end. Despite some lovely donations and a sparkly tree, the ScPA is lacking in Christmas cheer at the moment.
