Hi and Happy Thursday all! Remember when I blogged about the:
Well, guess what I just found out, right from their newsletter!
Our 2nd endeavor in the ASPCA/Rachael Ray Challenge officially ended on August 31. It has truly been a “labor of love” summer, with so many volunteers and community friends lending a paw! At our August 17 Westborn Mall adopt-a-thon event, 49 hopefuls were lucky enough to find forever homes. That brings the total number of extravaganza adoptions to 166!
MAGICAL HOME FOR DIGGER
Three-month-old Digger epitomizes the amazing results that YOUR dedication can achieve. Found as a stray, Digger is profoundly deaf. Walter and Rebecca Kingsley, former Michiganders and Friends adopters who now live in South Carolina, were visiting relatives when they spotted the smiley boy at our Westborn off-site.
Digger is on his way home to South Carolina!!! The Kingsleys adopted a pup named Sirius from the Friends eight years ago and, after meeting the charming Digger, decided to add to the family. Since they utilize hand-signals for training,it’s a perfect match. And being Harry Potter fans, Digger is now named Draco. That’s pretty magical!

AND THE SHELTER MANAGER
Mom and I just LOVE reading stories like this! Never, ever underestimate the power of your local shelters to help place these precious babies in their furever homes!!!
Barks and licks and love,
