These heart-warming adoptions have happened recently and we can’t help but share!
Sean is quite the handsome senior rescue kitty. Affectionate, a great listener, and an expert purr-er, Sean is a catch. Unfortunately he kept getting over-looked by potential adopter for months. As a senior, black kitty cat with diabetes, he took a little extra time to find that unconditional love that he was desperately trying to give. Luckily, a kind, open-hearted adopter came in, laid her eyes on this miniature panther, and knew they were meant to be together. She took him home in May and sent us an update in June saying: “Sean, now named Al is loving life and is the biggest snuggle bug! He’s also the worlds loudest 5:00 am alarm clock. I think he’s my soulmate. He fits right into our family. He definitely belongs with us.” We couldn’t be happier for Al (Sean) or for his new family. We love love!
Sheba is a unique and quirky gal. She’s a 2 year old Husky/Shar Pei mix with the tiniest, most adorable ears we’ve seen on a dog her size. When she first came into the SPCA of Northern Nevada she was timid. (Understandably so – being rescued is one of the most important but also confusing times in a rescue pet’s life.) She wasn’t sure how to interact with other dogs, and although she loved people, she did always display the best manners.
She came to us at the end of March and we thought she would get adopted quickly because of how stinkin’ cute she is. However, she ended up spending a few months with us. That time period gave our staff and dedicated volunteers time to spend with her, help socialize her, and get to know her. They worked day in and day out to learn about Sheba, and to help her understand the best ways to interact with dogs and people. The Sheba who got adopted last week was a very different dog than the Sheba who first arrived at the SPCA of NN adoption center.
She was thrilled to meet the loving couple who came in and fell in love with her. She even went home with a tiny older brother! The reason pets like Sheba can have the time they need to be helped by people with amazing hearts and patience to help them find loving homes is because of you.
More pets have been adopted recently and we are so thrilled! Check out photos of recent adoptions! (And if you just can’t get enough, go visit our Alumni Group on Facebook and see the adoption stories and updates from the adopters, first-hand!)
