In the world of animal rescue, there are many ups and downs. Our staff gets immersed in the lives of each and every animal that we care for. When an animal comes to us, we know it is up to us to find the right family to set every one up for success. Once in a while, we come across a pet that has certain characteristics that require even more diligence. The long term success of our pets AND the families that adopt them is something we take very seriously and assess each animal to the best of our ability to ensure just that.
Introduce, Eva. She came to us from a family that loved her, but life changed and they could not keep her.
Eva is a not common breed. She is a Cane Corso, a breed that is meant to be a guard dog. They are large, powerful, and protective!! These traits don’t always lend themselves to passing an evaluation meant for the “average dog”, and certainly are not always successful at holding up well in the stressful environment of a shelter, no matter how hard we try to help our pets feel safe and secure. We had concerns about finding a family that would truly understand what they were getting and what her potential could be (good or bad). We began reaching out to foster based, breed-specific rescues in the hopes of finding her a situation that would ensure a happy, healthy life.
After 8 long weeks, lots of socialization, highs and lows of a selfless staff that worked with her everyday while in our care, and the help of MCP Rescue and Outreach, Eva has now found her forever family!! We wish to extend many thanks to all those who came together to network, share and ultimately save this beautiful girl!
Michelle and I wanted to thank you for your help with our adoption. Farley is loving his new home and we love having him here! He has been adjusting very smoothly and is showing us just how sweet, smart, and obedient he can be. We already feel a strong bond and trust with him, and it hasn't even been 24hrs!
It’s been 3 years since we adopted our little Skippy Jon Jones (formerly known as Willy) from you guys. Just wanted to send an update and thank everyone for what you do over there.
Skippy originally was a medical and possible abuse rehabilitation, but demonstrated the disposition of a therapy dog after he adjusted to his new home! Eventually, he became my son’s emotional support dog! He goes everywhere with us, even on international travel. Life wouldn’t be the same without him! Please feel free to share a post on this incredible little rescue story.
Hello! I am Maggie! I am about three and a half years old, but I'm not very sure. I am very well behaved (wink, wink). I eat green beans and carrots! I am proud that I only know one command, which is SIT! I love toys. My favorite is my furry bone. I have a very early bed time which is about 7:00 PM. However, I wake my humans up very early!
When my humans first came to see me, I was thinking - who are these people and what are they here for? I also wanted to know why the girl with the glasses tasted so good. I am so happy my family found me! This writing thing is pretty tiring, I must take a nap.
Just sending a big thank you for the wonderful new addition to our family- Domino. He's only been in our home over a week and he's been such a joy. He's spoiled rotten too! Lots of love, toys, food, water and plenty of goodies. He knows he's got us wrapped around his little paw too... He's so good with our grandbabies! He's so patient with them. Such a good boy. He greets us every day when we come home with "meows" and "purring"...
Thank you again!
Jackie's doing great! Her full name now is Empress Jackie Thunderpaws, because on her first day home she spent a solid ten minutes thundering up and down the stairs - I think she really likes being able to run and spread out here.
I couldn't find the food the shelter was giving her but I had some Purina One and she seems to be doing okay with it. She's been getting her wet food twice a day since I noticed she doesn't drink that much water.
She loves playing with her fish toy on a string that you guys gave us - that and her laser pointer and her pink ribbon are her favorite toys. She likes to hide under the bed and then I wiggle the ribbon in front of her and she pounces out from under the bed to get it! It's super cute. She's been really friendly and nice to all the visitors we've had over. Oh, and she sleeps with me at night by my feet a lot. I've discovered that if she runs out of food at night, she wakes me up by licking my face until I go get her more food - even if it's 6 am.
She's very lovey and she purrs all the time and in the mornings when I get ready she follows me everywhere I go. She's amazing and I love her.
