Darla and Tess - Both adopted from CARE (February 2019)
Darla and Tess - Both adopted from CARE (February 2019)

Darla and Tess are doing great! Tess is a major highlight of our lives, an indispensable family member who shares every adventure with us. She and Darla are side-by-side throughout the day, only separating at night and only because Darla prefers her dog bed whereas Tess chooses to share people beds (frequently hogging the pillow!). She wakes us every morning with showers of kisses to say "ok people, time to get up and go potty!" She remains queen of the squeakies and is often surrounded by 6 or 7 of them, sometimes hugging one while she sleeps. Her favorite one is of course whichever one Darla happens to be playing with, but Darla is a good sport, she gives them up with a look of "ok whatever..." Our girls are just a joy to have and we can't imagine life without them. Thank you so much for getting them off to such a great start. Have a terrific 2019, and best of luck in your work for the animals.

Crispin and new best friend (February 2019)

Crispin is a crazy, playful and energetic pup. He has gone through several surgeries on his hind leg. But that didn't stop him. He is jumping on the beds and couches, running in the grass and playing with his new sister Cassie. He had another sister, Emily. He is a lovey and sweet boy. He has found a forever home in NC.
Callahan (January 2019)
Callahan (January 2019)

Not sure who rescued who? Olivia was Callahan's foster mom who made the connection so easy and was helpful throughout the entire process of ensuring Callahan had a permanent home that was a perfect fit for him.( He was purchased from a breeder and then dumped off at a kill shelter.)

Callahan is a healthy well socialized puppy and was potty trained. Not to mention all the required shots/records along with neutering and microchipping were all provided by C.A.R.E.

We were very fortunate to have Callahan join our family at 6 months old. He is thriving in his loving home not to mention being spoiled everyday! We enjoy taking him for walks at The Biltmore House and socializing at all the local breweries.

Callahan has been enrolled in training classes and he is the over achiever along with the "teachers pet". He loves learning new tricks and has graduated from the Canine Good Citizen Program. We are so happy with Callahan.

We could not have asked for a better dog. He is a loving and patience puppy. We are so grateful for finding C.A.R.E. and Olivia for all they do to provide homes for animals that have been discarded in local shelters.
Mickey - Now Mr. McFluff (December 2018)
Mickey - Now Mr. McFluff (December 2018)

I adopted Mickey (aka Mr. McFluff) in November 2018 at the age of 16.5yrs. He made himself at home immediately and is already friends with my other two senior cats. He is smart, sweet, fiesty, and still has a little kitten inside of him. He follows me everywhere and prefers to sleep either on me or next to me. He is a total love! I highly recommend adopting a senior animal who needs a new home!
Nitro (November 2018)
Nitro (November 2018)

So thankful to have Nitro as a part of our family now. He is loved so much and spoiled rotten. Robin did a great job training him as he is very well behaved, potty trained and listens well. Not much of an adjustment for him because he is still living in the same house he was being fostered at, so he is as comfortable as ever. My girlfriend went with Robin to go rescue Nitro and she fell in love with him the second she held him. We just knew he had to be a part of our forever family. He loves to play with other puppies and dogs and gets along great with my girlfriends kitty. They love to chase each other around the house and they take turns chasing the lazer pointer. Nitro has such a great personality and is as charming as ever. He loves to play with toys that squeak and will definately let you know when he's in the same room as you. Now that it's cold outside he loves to wear his little sweater around and cuddle under blankets. ❤

Turley and I are so happy to have welcomed little Izzy to our family! Izzy is the perfect example of why older dogs should never be overlooked. She is cuddly, playful, and loves our walks together. Love this little girl!

Our family is so fortunate to have found Duncan and Jesse. They are so loving and friendly and bring us absolute joy! Duncan is a softy and let Jesse run all over him and she adores Duncan. Thank you so much, Laura, for our pups.
Peaches (July 2018)
Peaches (July 2018)

Peaches new parents: We were so fortunate to adopt Peaches. She is such a funny, sweet little kitty. Peaches has finally accepted she is an indoor lady of leisure and has a brother who adores her.

Peaches: I got off to a rocky start in my new home. I really missed my family! My new mom would sleep with me when I cried at night. I have a new brother. I didn't like him at first but now we play chase everyday after breakfast. I really wasn't sure about this whole indoor cat thing but they have plants and bought me window seats and I have my own bedroom with lots of toys. I really like the nightly laser tag competitions with my new brother. We even sleep together at night. It's great to be spoiled!
Birdie X2 (June 2018)
Birdie X2 (June 2018)

This is my second happy ending story here--an update, 1.5 years later! My name is Birdie, and my mommy adopted me to fill a hole in her heart and in her home. We are best friends now...we go to museums and restaurants and parks and friends' homes together, and we also go to DOGGY PARKS and trails for HIKING! I have lots of friends, but my mommy is my best friend. She taught me tricks, and she gives me lots of treats, and she lets me snuggle in bed with her, and I have TWO toy boxes, and I have a doggy door so I can go in my big fenced yard to chase squirrels. I love my new life!
Milo (June 2018)
Milo (June 2018)

Milo has been such a blessing to my life. I always knew I wanted to be a dog mom. But was waiting for it to be right. Milo is the perfect furbaby. He's brought joy into my life. I truly believe that I was always supposed to be Milo's second mom. I'm still in contact with Milo's first mom and continue to share photos.

I adopted Hippo 3 days after my last pup passed. He was the perfect comfort dog. He was everything I needed. Hippo has been a wonderful addition to my family.

Phoebe, now Febe (April 2018)
Phoebe, now Febe (April 2018)

My name is Phoebe, now spelled Febe and here is my story. I heard that my mom and I were found on the side of the road when I was a very little baby. I was taken to a shelter and scooped up by Chatham Area Rescue (CARE) a very short while later. My foster mom, Laura is the greatest foster mom ever. She fixed me up with a pretty bow and took my picture for everyone to see. My foster mom spent time walking me on a leash, teaching me to potty outside, and to play well with others no matter if they were big or small or another dog or a cat. She also fed me really good food and great treats for the things I did right. She even had me fixed so I couldn't get in trouble with the boys. Then one day she took me to a park and I met two little boys, Baxter and Pnut. We had a really fun time and walked a long time so I could get to know them. Then a few weeks later we went to visit my new friends. It was fantastic, the yard is like a park and we ran and ran and played for such a long time that I ended up living with them. I now have all kinds of friends, two cats, Max and BeBe and sometimes other dogs visit, but my brothers are the best. I am so thankful for CARE and my foster mother, Laura. Laura takes a lot of time and care to make sure each one of her foster fur babies get the best life ever. There are not enough words to say how wonderful she is. If the opportunity arises for someone looking for a fur baby, we would highly recommend CARE and Foster mom Laura. Thank you Laura for our new addition to our family!
Buffy - A Happy Beginning (April 2018)
Buffy - A Happy Beginning (April 2018)

Hi! I'm Buffy, and until a couple of weeks ago I was living with a bunch of my friends in a house in the forest with a man named Steve. It was a nice place for a cat. Then some new people came, and we went on a long ride to a new place. I was a little scared, but at least there was another cat. I was pretty nervous, but I found a big box that had blankets in it and smelled like other cats. So I kind of hid in there at first. The man stayed in the room with me and talked to me and scratched my ears. He seemed nice enough, so I decided to come out and see what this place was. We were in a room that was up high where I could see a long way. I could see woods like at Steve's, but not as many trees. I spent a couple of days in there while the other cat got used to me being there. Now I have the whole house to roam around in -- and the yard and the deck too! There's lots of places for naps here, which is one of my best things and a fireplace, that' ll be handy next winter. And I finally met the other cat, Snickerdoodle. I still miss my old friends, but I love my new friends and my new forever home. So I call it "A Happy Beginning"!
Sugar (April 2018)
Sugar (April 2018)

Sugar has made our lives so much sweeter! She's the perfect mix of silly, playfulness & a cuddling snuggler. It's been so rewarding to see such a nervous little girl more relaxed & at home every day. Thank you Laura for making her transition smooth with all the tips & tricks to move Sugar from her foster home into ours. You do an amazing job Laura making SO many lives so much better-for pooches & people! We can't thank you enough for bringing our sweet Sugar into our lives!!

Buck - a loving companion (April 2018)
Buck - a loving companion (April 2018)

Buck lives the life of luxury on our small farm in Siler. He is my partner in crime and goes hiking with me as much as he can, although later in life he enjoys just lazing on my bed and jumping on the couch when he shouldnt be. Buck is the best friend a person could ask for and by far my favorite animal in the world. I've had buck for almost 8 years now and he makes me so happy!

Jasmine (March 2018)

Today is the one-year anniversary of adopting Jasmine from C.A.R.E. and the wonderful Laura. Laura saved Jasmine's life and brought her to health from a serious illness. Jasmine is the sweetest dog, a great companion for our older dog, and a wonderful light in our life. Thank you C.A.R.E. and Laura!
