May adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick, V.P. & Adoption Coordinator


Handsome Titan (nka Casey), a 1-year-old sable/white male has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. This big boy is still working on some grown-up manners but he doesn’t need any lessons to learn how to snuggle and give collie kisses. His new kitty sister isn’t too sure about him but word is that he thinks she’s great πŸ˜‰


Handsome Copper, a 2-year-old sable/white male, has been adopted and will be living in Kansas. Copper was surrendered to a shelter with dermatomyocitis (DM), an autoimmune disorder of skin and muscle found primarily in collies and shelties. His new dad did lots of research on DM before deciding to adopt him – he understands the care that Copper may need and is looking forward to helping him reach his full potential. Copper is just excited to have his very own person to snuggle πŸ™‚



Sammy, a 12-year-old sable/white male – born on Valentine’s Day – was in permanent foster care but his foster mom decided it was time to make him a ‘real’ member of the family, so he has been officially adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. He was originally found by a Good Samaritan and they were able to trace Sammy’s owner from the microchip scan. MWCR contacted Sammy’s dad and he decided to surrender him so that he could have a better life than he could give him, spending too much time alone because he worked long hours and his kids were grown and no longer living at home. Sweet Sammy is a gentle, loving boy and we are thrilled that ‘foster mom’ is now simply ‘mom’ πŸ™‚



Lovely Cookie, an 11-year-old sable/white female, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Cookie has discoid lupus, also known as ‘collie nose’, and she came to MWCR when her family was not able to care for her. Thanks to the help of many caring people, this sweet and gentle lady has found her forever place with a family who is happy to deal with her special needs. They are already in love and it sounds like the feeling is mutual – foster mom said Cookie had a big smile on her face as she bounced into their car like she owned it πŸ™‚
