Ashley lost her older cat, Lucifer, and wanted to open her heart to another rescue kitty. After some searching, she found a beautiful girl on our Petfinder site. To Ashley’s amazement, the kitty was virtually identical to her beloved Lucifer.
A few days later, Ashley and her 1 year old daughter Talynn met Kitty at our Thrift Store.
It was love at first sight!!
Since then Ashley has kept us posted on Talynn and “Kitty”. Recently she wrote,
“So we got us a kitty this weekend for Talynn, needless to say those two have made an amazing bond. When Tay is awake that cat never leaves her side. She follows Tay when she’s walking to make sure she doesn’t fall! I love watching our cat play fetch with Talynn lol. It is so cute! When I put Talynn down to bed, Kitty waits by the door, and when I go in to get Talynn up the kitty follows.”
Thank you Dixie County Humane Society, Anna and Darcy, for getting the ball rolling on her adoption, she LOVES my child! “
In August I had to have my 15 year old basset hound “Happy” euthanized. This is not the first time I have had to do this and it is never an easy decision. You have to put your feelings aside and do what is best for your “best friend”. Needless to say it left a huge vacant spot in my heart. I loved him very much and always will.
I did not think I would be able get another pet in the near future. Then a friend gave me a book entitled ” Cold Noses At The Pearly Gates”. I have always believed animals are Souls. This book enforces this belief. Somewhere in the book it states that the best way to ease the grief and sorrow is to love and be loved. I felt the best way to do this was to adopt a dog that was in need of a forever home and needed love.
I looked on the internet for local animal rescue groups and found Dixie County Humane Society, located in Old Town Florida. After looking at their website and the adoptable animals, I contacted them and spoke to Pam.
She suggested a dog named Rex. She described him as very laid back and likes to relax a lot. She e-mailed some pictures of Rex and we met the following Friday at the Humane Society site in Old Town.
Rex and I mutually accepted each other at first sight. Rex came home with me and our lives came together in his new forever home. Rex is a very loving and well mannered dog and made himself right at home.
Rex will never take the place of Happy, but has already given the love and affection needed to ease the grief and sorrow of losing him. Rex is now my new best friend and we are looking forward to many loving years together.
Thanks to Pam and the Dixie County Humane Society.
We were thrilled to hear from Bonnie – now- Anna’s furever family recently on Facebook. You’ll see from the photo montage below how well adjusted, happy, and loved baby Anna is. Isn’t this what life is all about!
Here’s what they had to say …
“In just a couple of months it will be a year since we adopted “Bonnie” from you guys … Anna is such a major part of our family … Thank you for being at the right place at the right time … I couldn’t imagine our lives without our sweet Anna!”
We heard recently from Bear’s mom. What WONDERFUL news! Here’s what she had to say …
Bear (formerly Cocoa) was adopted about 4 years ago from Dixie County Humane Society. Today, he is a registered therapy dog and visits with patients at Shands. He is a sweet, gentle, and loving boy – I couldn’t ask for a better dog. Thank you!
Does it get any better!!! And here is handsome bear today. Congratulations sweet Bear!
To our delight, Beaux’s family sent us this message a few weeks ago …
Just take a look at this photo collage. Talk about true love!
Congratulations to wonderful Beaux and his family.
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words! Like Percy for example. Lets just say Percy has gone on to become a diva. Not just any diva, mind you, but a beach diva! Must be nice! Congratulations to beautiful little Percy and her furever family!
Dixie’s family sent us quite a photo album of her lately. She loves to ride in the car, loves to just hang out on the family’s acres of land, and apparently also likes to take an occasional nap in a cat bed! You know what Dixie … you deserve it! Thanks to her loving family for the great pictures. Love you Dixie!
We love buddies! How about Big Buddy! Actually we call him Big … Big because one of our other favorites is Li’l Buddy as you’ll see below. To his loving family he is simply … Buddy! But one thing’s for sure … Buddy is the Big Guy around his house. Take a look at the picture of solid comfort! Buddy, we love you! We might add, you’ve certainly done well for yourself! Thanks to Buddy’s family for this priceless photo.
So here’s Li’l Buddy. What a doll!! Better known as simply Buddy to his loving family, we’re told that this adorable little guy is attending doggie classes at PetSmart. Not to mention, he’s at the top of his class! “Smart Dog”! Well of course he is!!! We’re looking forward to a graduation photo, maybe summa cum laude!
Oh, and one other thing! We’re told Buddy is actually a Carian Terrier! Impressive! In fact, here’s a photo his loving family sent along with these words, “Dixie County Humane Society. We love him very much. Thank you!”
That’s what it’s all about! Congratulations Li’l Buddy!
To say that Squirrel is doing well is an understatement!!! Take a look at this handsome little guy. You’d think he owned the place! And who knew he was a swimmer! One thing’s for sure … his furever family loves him very much. And did we mention … he’s very photogenic! Squirrel, you’re great! We love you!
