The past few days have been crazy at the adoption center! It all started Saturday. We had an entire litter of kittens adopted, in just over an hour! Next, our hamster Remington finally found his home! Then another approved family came in and took home our wonderful cat Priscilla who had been waiting for her forever home for nearly an entire year. Finally, when one of the families came back to pick up the kitten they adopted, they begged to adopt our senior sweetheart Eunice! Of course we said yes, and sent them on their way to her forever home.
Crazy Saturday, but in between all of these wonderful happenings, we had a woman call who had reached out to several other agencies and no one could help. She was driving on 88 in Chenango Bridge, and found a young cat laying in the road. We of course said we would help, and when she arrived we got right to work. She was a mess. Covered in fleas, dirt, and feces. Her ears were a mess, her nose was runny, and she was freezing. After some short work by a couple of our volunteers, she was safe, and ready to rest for the night. Now named Azalia, she has since found her forever home with a former employee of our adoption partner Petco, and will be headed home next Monday!
Cue Sunday's craziness, when we took in 8 terrier lab mix puppies! They sure are a handful but man are they cute! They are super sweet, kind of doofy, and really entertaining. They can be seen at the adoption center. Hopefully they haven't messed up their room too much for your visit :) After the puppies came in, a few of us headed over to our fundraiser at The Chalk Market, where I was interviewed by WBNG and got to talk about our upcoming TNR event (check out the TNR page for more information). Then we painted our hearts out, drank some wine and raised some money for the rescue! We had a great time!
Then came Monday where by 5am we had already received a call about a sick pregnant cat. She had already given birth to two babies, one of whom had already passed away. Mama was rushed to Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital where she had emergency surgery to remove two more stillborn babies, and bladder stones. She has injuries consistent with being kicked or beaten, but is recovering well. She's even letting her mini me nurse. Quinn and Quinnlee will be up for adoption in about 8-10 weeks.
Cue Tuesday morning, and guess who is finally going to a forever home! TRipsy!!!!! Her new mom is giving us a few days to say goodbye and then Tripsy will be headed to her forever home! We wish her all the luck in the world. Our volunteer Dave and his wife Kathy headed over to the station to be on the news!
