3 Kittens and a Puppy

Overall, we had a successful adoption event today for Fur to Feathers Rescue. 3 kittens found their forever homes and one puppy was also adopted. We had 4 different families that came out specifically to look at Sharif (aka Pancake) but one gal decided on her own that she would like to start fostering first, one man didn't want a home visit done (red flag there), another one is thinking between him and one of our puppies, and I can't remember what happened to the other.

Unfortunately, Sharif came back home with me for the night. We are going to another event tomorrow so maybe we'll get some leads then. I won't be able to take him but one of our volunteers will be picking him up and bringing him. He is so tired out from today's event that after he ate, he flopped down and has been sleeping ever since (with one potty break). He is such a good boy but we need to be picky about where he goes because he is such a special dog. We want to make sure he will be treated like a family member, and not just a dog who is tossed outside all day all alone.

We are fostering the cutest Shar-Pei boy right now! He is such a good dog, knows his basic commands, and is great with the kids. He is very curious about the cats, and they HATE him, haha. He just got fixed yesterday so the urge to mark is still in him. I'm trying to give him a bit more freedom in the house and he promptly marked the laundry basket in the hall and then the dehumidifier downstairs (I blocked the way to the basement now). He is going to make a fabulous addition to someones family. Natalie said he is the perfect addition to our family, but Jeff says NO, and I know he is right. We just are not cut out to be dog owners, but fostering from time to time is fun. Here's to hoping "Pancake" gets adopted soon!
