Bad News, Good News... 15 Intakes, 1 Month

If you have been following the emails you may have noticed a TON of shelter transport and foster home requests. In the last month we have taken 15 shelter dogs into our program .. FIFTEEN ... Sometimes they came in pairs or multiple requests from the same shelter! Some of these dogs came to us very sick and will need some extended stays in medical foster homes prior to being ready to adopt.... more on that another time..... Because our Intake team ROCKS we did not have to turn down a single North Texas Shelter request for help. This obviously took a village, some creative thinking, doubling up fosters and even some begging:)

Earlier this week Stacie talked about Raven who came with a friend. Her foster mom took both without hesitation and worked with Raven to make her ready for adoption. She was so sweet that we were able place her fast with a family who had a male rescue dog in need of a female friend for company. This foster mom is still working to make Raven's original buddy healthy and he is making huge progress each day! It looks like he may need surgery .... More on him soon ....

Ms Bailey had been in a remote shelter for 5 months before we were contacted! When we pulled her she was obviously a very very sweet girl with some special needs... she will most likely need medication her entire life and needs a FURever home with some specific experience. When a repeat past adopter, with tons and tons of experience met her, at her in laws, it was love at first site. So today we made if official and this beautiful sweet special needs dane has found a FABUTASTIC FURever home with 4 kids who love her dearly. Bailey LOVES those kids and has instantly bonded with everyone in this special family.. so today Bailey is adopted. AND this sweet girl will still be part of the extended GDRNT Family.... wooo hooooo

As always a huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped to pull this off..anyone who has ever donated time, money or prayers plays a part in each rescued dane. So give yourselves a pat on the back we did good! NOW lets all pray for a break:)

Soooo wonder who will be next:) Stay tuned!
