A Pair of FURever Homes!

Just got this from one of our AWESOME Adoption Coordinators .. YIPEEEE!

It's been a busy week at rescue, and it all started with a couple of adoptions.

Athena was returned to rescue because her family's schedule changed and set off her separation anxiety. Danes don't often come back, but when situations change we're here to ensure these sweet pups find an appropriate new home. Athena's separation anxiety and age made it a little more challenging to find that right fit, but when an app came in asking about her specifically and seeming to have the right set-up for her we were all cautiously optimistic. Athena is now in a pawsome home with a fur-sister and humans who adore her. Even better, someone is home during the day to keep her company and ease her anxiety. This family understood her needs and are committed to providing whatever it takes.

Lucy is a sweet, young girl who came in as a stray from a local shelter. From the get-go her sweet disposition showed that she was up for anything - kids, small dogs, you name it. Just make sure to hide the bread. This silly sweetheart only countersurfs for bread! Her new home is Dane-savvy and was looking to share their love. She's already made herself at home by cuddling up to her new family, taking a dip in the pool and even sneaking a bit of bread when she thinks nobody is looking. Congratulations to this sweet girl on a fantastic furever home!
