Happy Tails For Phantom

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: August 27, 2018
Pet’s AARF Name: Phantom
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Phantom
How is your adopted pet doing? He’s doing great. He was a bit slow to make friends but doing well now. Sudden noises still startle him. He absolutely adores my 9 year old granddaughter as does she him. We adopted another male kitten, Olliveander, and they get along great. Phantom loves playing with Olliveander and my 4 English angora rabbits, about 2 months old. They run and chase each other and tumble around on the floor. They play chase from the floor, to the couch to the back of the couch, back to the floor and all around the house. He meows when they are in their hutch. He would only use the rabbit’s litter box for the first week until I put his next to theirs. They love to chase each other in the cat tree too. We love both the adopted cats. Thank you.

Happy Tails For Remi

Pet’s AARF Name: Remi
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): We kept is as Remi
How is your adopted pet doing? Remi is fitting wonderfully well into our family. She’s a little rambunctious at times, but we love her big personality. Although she’s a young pup, she learns quite quick – so far she can sit, give paw, drop it, leave it, and her recall is really good. She has her big brother River, who has been doing an amazing job showing her the ropes, and they love playing together most of the day! We have been so blessed to have Remi as a part of our family, and we cannot wait to see what a beautifully young lady that she will turn into as she grows.

Happy Tails For Chicory

Pet’s AARF Name: Chicory
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Jacz (Jax)
How is your adopted pet doing? He is doing awesome! We knew he was the one for us the first time we saw his photo, but bringing him home sealed the deal. He is a sweet rambunctious little guy. He loves to cuddle and give lots of kisses. All of us love him, even our community knows him, he is the only puppy, and there is no where we walk with him that we don’t here “oh that’s Jacz” 🙂 He is doing very well as expected with his potty training, and has learned sit and is starting to learn he has a voice to tell us he has to go outside. We are so grateful for A.A.R.F. and helping us make the adoption so easy! To explain how the name is, we decided to take all our initials in our family, and thats where we came up with Jacz (pronounced Jax). I recommend your organization all the time for anyone looking for a new four legged family member.

Happy Tails For Duchess

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: August 12, 2018
Pet’s AARF Name: Duchess
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Lola
How is your adopted pet doing? Lola is great! She is now 4 months old and weighs 30 lbs! Some of her favorite things include her stuffed animals (“Bunny” and “Teddy”), Nylabones, Kong balls, and rope toys. She also loves to nap, especially on hardwood floors with her tongue out. She greets are neighbors and other furry friends with a big smile, tail wag, and sniff. One neighbor even remarked, “She’s the talk of the neighborhood. She is so sweet!” Lola knows how to sit, shake, and lay on command. She uses her training bell to alert us when “it’s time to go” and has officially completed potty training. Lola is a growing girl who is not scared of anything besides the vacuum, weed eater, and mower. She loves to try to catch flying insects, chase rabbits, and meet new friends.

Taylor and I have been blessed with such a sweet, precious girl. It is hard to imagine our life without her in it. She definitely has us wrapped around her “paw”. We are so thankful for Lola’s foster mom, Rebecca Samon and AARF for finding her and her siblings, providing a loving home, and selecting us as her parents.

***Please enjoy the photos of a day in the life of Lola!***

Happy Tails For Pumba

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: August 18, 2018
Pet’s AARF Name: Pumba
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Arlo
How is your adopted pet doing? I had so many heartbreaks in the last year while trying to adopt a dog from Petfinder. So many accepted applications from various rescues, but no dog to show for it. I wondered why the universe seemed intent on denying me the ONE thing I wanted so desperately…. and now I know. Arlo was always meant to be mine 🙂

When I look down at that adorable furry face, there’s one word that continuously comes to mind – grateful. He is everything I could’ve ever hoped for in a dog: loving, gentle, smart, and patient enough to try and win over my two (senior) indoor cats (who up until a month ago had never even seen a dog in their life).

Arlo greets total strangers like they’re his long-lost family, humans and canines alike. Everyone gets a barrage of slobbery puppy kisses and he whimpers as if he’s spent forever missing them, even though they just met. I work in the veterinary field, and am surrounded by dogs all the time. That’s why I feel I can say with total (slightly biased) authority, that he is the sweetest soul to ever walk on four feet.

He has fit so seamlessly into our family that it feels like he’s always been here. He brings so much love and laughter into our home and everyone is incredibly grateful to AARF (and especially Arlo’s original foster mom, Rebecca Samon) for bringing this wonderful furbaby into our lives…. though I’m sure my cats would respectfully disagree with those sentiments 🙂

Happy Tails For Hunter

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: July, 2018
Pet’s AARF Name: Hunter
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): still Hunter
How is your adopted pet doing? Hunter enjoys his Saturday morning Puppacino at Starbucks, has daily walks and playtime each day and has chewed threw through 4 large rawhide bones since July. We continue to deal with some health issues; he is happy with pill pocket treats but not frequent baths. He has proven himself trustworthy enough to leave the crate overnight and has a very comfy bed in front of the fireplace. Hunter enjoys people but not other dogs. We continue to bond as a family being convinced we were meant to be together.
