Travis is Adopted!
Travis is Adopted!
Today was a very good day for Travis. Saturday at our Willowbend Mall Adoption Day Kimberly and her daughter Crystal saw Travis and fell in love with him. After spending time getting to know him they immediately texted Dad a picture and he said go for it. So we lined up a home visit which was done on the way back to the shelter and everything went terrific. Travis could have cared less about the cats in the house and the little dog Faith had been around bigger dogs so that worked out as well. However, I could not leave Travis there on the spot but promised to bring him back today. We want to say thank you to this wonderful family for giving Travis a forever home. Congratulations Travis!

A small dog in a big world. Even after his abandonment at a animal clinic Jack Jack continues to defy all odds daily. His neurological challenges are no match for his desire to complete certain milestones. We have set up special temporary kennels for his outside time so that he's able to navigate around without complications. Today was a little different, Jack Jack and I spent time in the big park. With extra time for me to stay close by and monitor him, he explored around the park with excitement. It's the small things we do as a crew that makes a big difference. 2018 was a tremendous year for Straydog, adoption rates were at a all time high and our vision for a new Hospital to house senior dogs and our dogs in need of rehabilitation became a reality. We were able to provide and afford medical attention to more rescues than ever. Also, through a great partnership, Straydog was able to get more puppies adopted out than that of previous years. There were numerous goals that we were able to achieve, the list could go on and on. Unfortunately, with all the success and highs in 2018, Straydog’s operating funds are at a all time low. We as a nonprofit rely on donations to continue our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating, and restoring what was taken from these beautiful animals. As with Jack Jack, we take pride in taking on all challenging situations. Straydog currently houses blind dogs, deaf dogs and dogs without limbs. When the world gave up on them, we didn't. They count on us, can we count on you? Help us continue our mission of love and compassion by donating, sharing our post and tagging your friends. It's the small things we do together that makes a big difference, if you don't believe me ask Jack Jack.

One of my many favorite dogs here at Straydog is my Chip boy. He always wants to sit in your lap or be held like a baby while you scratch his belly. He has the best personality I have ever seen in a dog. Although he’s a little timid at first, he warms up to you very quickly! He would love to have a family of his own and be their big goof ball.

Banjo was looking extra handsome today. He was just wanting handshakes (he’s good at that) and his cookies of course!
Great News! Raven has been adopted!
Raven's new family met her at Petsmart this past Saturday and instantly fell in love with her. After spending time getting to know her they decided that she should be part of their family. An application was filled out and the home visit was yesterday. Raven first met their cat Callie and the two of them did not mind each other at all. While this was going on their other two dogs, Ladybird and Junebug were just coming back from a walk and came in surprised to see Raven. After a little bit of meet and greet things worked out and before you know we all could tell it was going to be just fine. A family picture was taken and we left with no worries. Later last night a text was sent saying all the girls were getting along beautifully, sharing toys, having dinner and that they were head over heels in happiness. And this morning we received this great picture of nap time.
Looks like a forever home has been found, Congratulations Raven
