River, in NC, has found his forever home and has settled in perfectly with the Dinterman family. He already sleeps with his big human sister Kylee, loves playing with tennis balls in the backyard and going for long walks or runs. River has a nice mix of wildlife to stalk including birds, rabbits, and squirrels and also has a great selection of toys to choose from on a daily basis (what dog wouldn’t LOVE this house)!
From his new family, “Thanks to Tia (River's foster mom) for selecting us as River's new family. Tia will forever be Aunt Tia to River."
Thank you Tia and congratulations to River and the Dinterman family – it’s a happy day!
Lady, fostered in TN, has been sitting on a secret-she’s not going anywhere and she also has a new name, Sabine, and will be called Beans. From her former foster parents/new mom and dad, “Beans is a remarkable pup. We found SEGSP and thought fostering would be a great step before adopting. We both teared up at the video of Lady in the shelter - skin and bones but still wiggly and affectionate - and we knew we needed to help her.
Her first day, she showed how resilient she is. She was so loving, especially for a dog who’d just spent two months in kennels. She was pretty sick with giardia, double ear infections, had hot spots on both of her wrists, and was severely underweight. Plus, she was spayed the day before. But she made sure to tell us she loved us.
Most importantly, she wasn’t especially concerned with our senior cats (Zoe, 17; Bigs, 14). She’s even licked Bigs a few times. She loves every person she meets and is adorably gentle with kids.
She’s so very smart - she understands and learns commands on the second or third try, and she’s excited to show off her new tricks. Or maybe that’s just the treats she gets as rewards. She LOVES car rides and asks for at least one daily. She’s content to rest her head on the driver’s shoulder and give an occasional kiss on the cheek.
We weren’t expecting to foster fail the very first time, but we knew almost immediately that she completed our little family. We are completely smitten with her.”
And we are smitten with the Malloys. Thank you for taking such great care of our Lady/Beans. We couldn’t be happier for all of you!
Heidi has found her forever home! Congratulations Heidi and her new family, Yvette and Ross. And a HUGE thank you to Heidi’s foster parents Kim and Troy for all they’ve done to prepare Heidi for this day.
From her foster mom Kim, “Heidi packed her bag this morning and the exchange went flawlessly. Heidi jumped right in Ross and Yvette’s car like she knew she was going home. As you can see from the photos she is going to be a happy girl!!! Heidi is a beautiful pup and will be missed by all of my pack but we know she is going to be happy in her new home.”
Heidi came to rescue after the death of her owner. She had a very sad adjustment but with the help of her foster family she’s happy again. Heidi is looking forward to lots of quality time and love with her new family... and we’re looking forward to hearing updates on sweet Heidi.
Cash went to his forever home yesterday. We had our meet and greet last week, and she is a perfect fit for him. He is already spoiled. Thanks to SEGSP for all the help. Thanks to Lauronda for giving him an excellent home, he is now a mountain dog. Excited to see what else his life has in store.
As always it’s tough to see them go. We know we made the right choice and are thankful for that. As for Cash, you came at the right time. Our family had an unexpected loss of a family member the week before you joined us. You were perfect for helping us cope and heal along the way. Enjoy your new family, I know you will bring them as much joy as you did us.
