Six adoptions today, which was a bit of a morale booster after some tough times of late.
The first of today’s departures was particularly good news, as it was that of Boza. You may remember this little chap. He arrived on May 28th at the age of about four weeks and in a dreadful state. He was infested with worms and was severely dehydrated. Even the vet wondered if he would pull through. Luckily one of our foster families just happens to be a veterinary nurse, and she and her husband took Boza home. I saw him today and what a change! He is a fabulous little chap and is going to have a great life with his new family and new doggy friends. Thanks Lisa and Andrew!
The second adoption was that of Sunny, also to a British family and she was closely followed out of the refuge gates by Nefertiti, Sioux, Falco and little Lisi.
It was hard to see Falco go, as he was the favourite dog of one of our young volunteers, Tiffany. She was in a similar state to me a couple of weeks ago when Ripley left, and I was in tears watching her! We want them all to leave, but we get so attached to some of them!
Of course it was not all good news, with the arrival of one dog, abandoned by the son of her sick and elderly owners. But Manon is pretty so we hope she will find a home before too long, although there is some work to do on her socialisation.
The weather was good, so lots of dogs were walked and several new volunteers came along. All on all, not a bad day!
