Happy Tails For Shirley

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: 6/20/19
Pet’s AARF Name: Shirley
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Shirley
How is your adopted pet doing? Shirley is the sweetest kitty! We recently lost 2 of our kitties and Shirley has filled that hole for us. She jumped right in and befriended our two older kitties like she’s known them forever. LC is her new adopted mom and Shirley just wants to be with her at all times to snuggle. Bob is gigantic and a bit intimidating, but Shirley is not afraid at all and just wants to play. Everybody is getting along great and I’m so thankful to have found this sweet tiny baby. Thank you for all you do AARF to find homes for all of these animals!

Happy Tails For Loki

Pet’s AARF Name: Loki
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Rufio aka “Ru”
How is your adopted pet doing? Ru is thriving! He loves to run and play with us in our yard and with our neighbors’ dogs. He has done well having my family visit for a weekend with their two dogs. He romps at the dog park. He has been hiking with us on trails, both on and off leash. My husband takes him for a 2-3 mile run each morning to start his day off with activity. He then gets about four more intentional walks the rest of the day, but also lots of free time to play with us in our basement and yard. Whenever we pick up his leash, he starts wiggling around and smiling! We have since adopted two cats and they are best friends with Ru. We leave them out all together and they play like buds. Finally, Ru also loves to snuggle and he will really lean into you or your legs if you start rubbing his head or shoulders. He also loves being brushed (but not bathed haha)! We have not had ANY problems with him. Ru is a dream come true!

Happy Tails For Piper

Pet’s AARF Name: Piper
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Blitz
How is your adopted pet doing? Blitz is the perfect addition to our family! She’s been with us 4 weeks and just turned 5 months old. Because of her awesome foster mom, she was already crate trained & housebroken when we brought her home! She is very smart & is learning quickly. My husband & I and our 3 kids adore her, but her best friend is Sugar, our 4 year old Border Collie Mix. Blitz loves to pounce on Sugar as often as possible & loves to play tug-of-war, wrestle, and run laps around the yard chasing her! Blitz hasn’t completely won over our cat, Figaro, (yet) but that’s only because she is so spunky & excited whenever he’s around. Blitz’s DNA test shows she is 75% Border Collie & 25% Sighthound. She is just the sweetest thing with the most soulful eyes and we couldn’t be happier to have found her!

How is your adopted pet doing? Rudy is doing awesome! He has been through so much (being abandoned) and we think he’s adapted to our home well. 🙂 We have a large family with four children, so Rudy loves the commotion and stimulation in our house. He loves walks and a good treat. We look forward to many more years and memories with our boy!

Happy Tails For Michelle

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: May 2019
Pet’s AARF Name: Michelle
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Melly
How is your adopted pet doing? She is adjusting very well! Still very skittish but starting to explore the house more every day. She loves to be petted and has 3 hiding places to just chill out. Fast movements and loud noises scare her so no photos yet.
My 6 yr old daughter visits her regularly to make sure she’s not lonely in her hiding spots and Melly is very receptive to her visits. My daughter is in charge of her water and feed and loves to make sure she has plenty every day.
Melly has been a great addition to our household!❤
