February Adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick, Adoption Coordinator

Wesley

Wesley

Wesley, an 8-year-old tricolor male smoothie, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Wesley was surrendered to MWCR due to his owner’s financial difficulties. He was originally an outdoor dog but adjusted quickly to his new indoor privileges, although he does have some trouble with stairs. Wesley’s new home has some kitties and two non-furry siblings for him to snuggle with and his new mom and dad are more than happy to help him with any mobility issues he may have. Congratulations!

Destiny

Destiny

Destiny, a 2-3-year-old mahogany sable female collie mix, came to MWCR as a stray from a local humane society. Although she was in pretty rough shape when she arrived, this sweet girl’s playful, happy personality shone through. Her new home has a great fenced yard and mom and dad are home almost all the time to give her all the attention she could want. She’ll even have lots of visiting grandkids and their pets to play with. Definitely a Valentine’s wish come true.

DixieDixie, a 2-3 year old sable/white female who was surrendered due to changing life circumstances, will be staying in Wisconsin with her foster mom and dad permanently. And who can blame them when you have a cute face like this to wake up to in the morning! She will be sharing her new home with some kitty siblings and a visiting doggie brother. Congratulations!

Here is a photo of our Sweet Lyle (adopted on July 1, 2014). He is so funny and I think he would be the heart-throb Valentine of many collie ladies! One of his "tricks" is to wear things on his head. He takes this job very seriously and I have many photos of him wearing things. Here he is, wearing a cowboy hat and lookin' mighty fine. He has also learned to ring a doorbell to come inside instead of scratching on the door. What a good boy! Thanks again for all your wonderful help with collies. - Angie Zweifel

Baron

Baron has thrived since being adopted in 2009. He came into rescue as a stray, skinny and very frightened. 

 

All that fur is good for the Kashuba's. Robin stayed warm behind the door!

Beautiful 13+ year old Mariah (in permanent foster care) came in about 2 years ago from a hoarding situation with her coat and skin in terrible condition. Her foster mom reports that even though she's slowing down she still enjoys helping with daily chores. What a good girl!

Update: Arkansas Ollie

OllieArkansas Ollie, an 8-year-old sable/white male, was the victim of extreme abuse due to neglect. Coming into rescue with bad hips and terrible teeth, he was also overweight and heartworm positive.
Ollie’s dental work is done and he is now comfortable eating dry food. Even though he’s enjoying his food his foster family is working hard to make sure he continues to drop his excess weight and his shaved coat is growing back nicely.
Ollie still has a couple months left on his heartworm treatment and then he will need to be neutered, but this sweet boy is doing great.

Thank you so much to all of our wonderful volunteers who worked so hard to get Ollie to us and to his foster home and our donors for his continued care. If you would like to donate to MWCR to help with his medical bills, you can do so through the donation link at the bottom of our homepage. Our member Catherine’s dog, Sailor, is helping to raise money for Ollie as well. If you would like to donate by sponsoring Sailor just let us know with a note on the donation form so that he can thank you personally!

Ranbow Bridge: Emily

EmilyMy sweet permanent foster Emily died in the early morning hours this morning.  I was able to hold her and comfort her to the end.  It was a natural passing of a little princess who 18 months ago didn’t seem likely to live 6 months.  It was a joy and privilege to care for her through her last months.  Her life had been so difficult, but her passing was gentle. – Marian Ridge

Rainbow Bridge: Luke

Luke_hatLuke was adopted by Chelsey in 2013 after being in a longtime foster home. Chelsey adopted him, knowing he had cancer. She sent a picture along with these comments: We adopted Lukie from you on June 8th, 2013 . . . He had cancer which we knew about and we had to make the tough decision tonight to put him down. His lungs and heart just couldn’t handle it any more. He did get one last car ride though which he loves.
