We we’re luckily accepted to become Theodore family and we are grateful for Robin at the time Theodore Forster mom to come to our home and bless us with letting us become Theo official parents. Theo is such a smart boy, funny, quiet, loves to sleep and very protective of us which is great. He loves to sleep on me and cuddle, play and boy does he love to be loved. We promise to love him each day and give him the best home and life every pet deserves. Thank you to all we are very fortunate ❤️
We met Simon at a CARE adoption event back in February. We had actually intended to meet one of Simon’s brothers we had seen on the website, but the moment we saw Simon, we knew he was our boy! He’s incredibly smart (and a little bit sneaky and stubborn on occasion). He sits, stays, and shakes hands already, and he loves to take naps with all of us. Everyone who meets him says how beautiful he is. We are so happy to have him in our family, and we are so grateful to his foster parents, Robin and Bill, for taking such great care of him while we waited for the adoption date!
Richard and I were planning on searching for a companion for our big female, River, AFTER our house renovation was done. But then we saw a picture and read the story of the two foster brothers, Lenny and Squiggy (now Pippin). Laura set up a Meet and Greet and we fell in love with little Squiggy. He’s now a part of our family and growing like a weed! If you can see his photo, maybe we should have called him Face instead of Pippin. Thank you Laura and CARE for giving him a great start in life.
Our journey to having a puppy is a long one. We had wanted a dog for years but the timing & our lifestyle was never quite right. We were looking into it late last year when we found out that our beloved kitty was very sick. We put all plans on hold in order to devote all of our love and care to him during his final weeks & months.
A month or so after his passing, we began looking on Petfinder as a kind of “therapy” and “research”. It was there that we first saw Lenny’s photo. Of all the beautiful and cute dogs we saw, his photo made us laugh out loud. He was so precious and funny. We were still just in the research phase though and weren’t planning on adopting just yet. Well, that changed 🙂
A few weeks later, we went to Phydeaux to pick up some kitty food. Within moments of us walking in my husband saw Lenny and recognized him from the photo. We went over and his handler, Amanda, spent so much time with us and we fell in love with Lenny then and there.
From there, the process got even more amazing. His foster mom, Laura, man, we could write pages on our gratitude for her. She gave us so much faith in the adoption process. She is such an advocate for the animals she fosters and because of that, she is an amazing support to the humans adopting. One of the best feelings was knowing that even if we weren’t chosen to be Lenny’s family, we would be able to move past our disappointment because we’d know that there was a better family for Lenny out there and a better fit for us. We trust her judgment completely and we are soooo grateful for it. The training and socializing and effort that Laura puts into her pups is just so wonderful and Lenny is a perfect example of what all that love can do. I know we’re partial but he is the sweetest, most lovable pup. He is completely irresistible!
We are first time dog owners and so all of us are learning together each day. There are challenges and adjustments, but it really is a wonderful process. 🙂 It will be one month on Saturday that he’s been with us and we love him more everyday; which I didn’t think was possible! He’s brought so much joy and love into our home. In the midst of all this chaos in the world and in our lives, we never go a day without smiling or laughing because we have him.
It’s really hard to pick just one photo of Lenny. I’m going with this sweet moment I got between Len & my hubs cause it makes me smile every time I see it.<3 I do have plenty of Lenny alone if that’s better! 🙂
I was looking for a lap dog for company. I found just that! Lucy and I couldn’t be any happier!
My wife and I fell in love with Lapis the moment we saw her. She was tiny when we met her but had a huge personality. She loves exploring, playing with her kitty brother and sister, chasing after wand toys and the laser pointer. She also loves to look out the window and hear the birds chirping. She has been a joy to welcome into our family. She is spunky, curious, and full of energy. She’s grown a lot in the last few months! She has a wonderful floofy tail and is a beautiful cat. She’s made our lives so much better. Thank you for helping us find her, CARE (and especially her foster mom, Patti!)
Adopting Calhoun was such a serendipitous event. I was walking around Lowe’s and saw him and his litter mates being pushed around in a shopping cart and I just fell in love. My husband was hesitant until he met the little sweetheart and then it was all over for both of us. He blended into the family instantaneously and even our cranky judgmental dog now loves him and lets him lay all over her (which is one of his favorite things to do, haha)
Thank you CARE for helping this puppy find our forever home ❤️
After losing my furry purr-son late last year, I found myself looking at the pets on CARE. Even though I saw many beautiful pictures, I kept going back to Olivia. Patti had described her perfectly. Olivia is not only beautiful, but she’s very sweet and loving.
Olivia has been home a little over a week and even though she is still getting used to everything, she has brought that beauty and kindness that I saw on CARE into our home.
I thank Patti and CARE for saving Olivia and her babies and for allowing me to experience Olivia’s love.
I just adopted Luna (I call her Luna-boo) in January and she is fitting in well. She gets along great with my other dog, Gideon, although she is definitely the boss! She is super affectionate and I couldn’t ask for a better fur baby. As I told her foster mom, Laura, she is thoroughly loved and I can’t imagine her not being a part of my family.
Lily is doing well. She adapted quickly to life in our home. She is high energy and likes to take long walks on the trails in our neighborhood. We’re working on socializing her to all the new the sights and sounds. It’s a work in progress, but she has made great strides in a short period of time: she almost tolerates the geese at our pond! We brought her to our veterinarian today for an initial checkup. She was given a clean bill of health.
