Nellie and the last of her pups have landed in absolutely stellar homes. Don't you love a happy ending?
Fabulous Fergus has landed a forever family and a new name. Now Toby, he joins big brother Jack in posing for a picture. Posing didn't last long though, as these two new buddies decided chase is the name of the game.
Keegan also got an amazing home with lots of folks to play with. He was adopted Aug. 25 at the MegaAdoption event sponsored by the Toledo Area Humane Society in front of the Petsmart in Rossford.
And momma Nellie landed in a home even better than I could of imagined. She has two little boys who love her to pieces. She's going to grow up with them and I look forward to many stories and photos as the years go by.
Facebook is such a godsend when it comes to fostering. It's never easy to say goodbye, but technology makes it so much easier to stay in touch.
A little update on my other fosters: I ended up keeping Scarlet and her pups for four weeks instead of the two I was anticipating, but that's ok, because really, the momma dogs do all the work the first four weeks. I wish more folks would consider fostering a mom and pups for a month. It's way less work than you think.
They were transferred to another Lucas County Pit Crew foster home and three of the five pups have been adopted, including Carmen, who turned out to be a total Heinz 57 mix, according to her DNA test, but is absolutely adorable.
After that, my husband and I fostered an adorable litter of kittens from the Michigan Humane Society. They had upper respiratory infections and just needed a few weeks of antibiotics and TLC. They went up for adoption last weekend.
We also did a quick, one-week foster of two of the Chihuahuas rescued from the puppy mill-turned hoarder by the Toledo Area Humane Society. They were quickly adopted along with the 13 other Chis at the MegaAdoption event.
We are currently taking a short break from fostering. Who knows what the next critter to walk in the door will be?
