Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Nadia
How is your adopted pet doing? Nadia is full of energy and in to everything. She seems happy in her new home with her two dogs and 2 cats. I have had numerous kittens over my lifetime, but I have never adopted a kitty who was socialized as well as Nadia. She is not afraid of any thing, She loves being held and loves to snuggle under the blankets in bed. She pounces the dogs and runs and will climb up your leg to be held if she thinks you are not paying enough attention to her. Even my vet said that someone did a wonderful job socializing her and everyone in the vet’s office had to hold her. She knows her new name and comes running when called. She is a wonderful addition to our family.

Happy Tails For Piper

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: August 27
Pet’s AARF Name: Piper
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Lola
How is your adopted pet doing? Lola is fitting in well as the newest member of our household! She loves to spend time outside investigating the property but also loves to cuddle once she has worn herself out. She is a frequent visitor to my office and the team loves her.

She has grown quickly and shows no signs of stopping there! We anticipated that but she keeps us on our toes with her curiosity and exposure to new heights (literally, like the kitchen counters this week, haha)

Lola is learning commands with ease but also has decided that some are not her favorite. She has no issue with laying on the puppy dog eyes and planting herself when asked to do something she isn’t a fan of.

All of her personality, energy, and puppy dog tendencies are exactly what we were looking for and we would not have it any other way!

She loves to snuggle at night, but during the day you can catch her running around chasing her feather “wand” or “attacking” her cat nip blanket. She is SO smart and even sits for treats! She has brought us so much love we could not imagine life without her.

Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Pickle
How is your adopted pet doing? Pickle has been a wonderful new addition to our family. Her bright, curious spirit has made us laugh all throughout the day, and she’s been a welcomed addition to our long daily walks with our 13-year-old black lab, Ace. The two of them are quite the pair, and they enjoy sunbathing in the backyard near the bird feeder… probably because this is where the squirrels are! 🙂 We love Pickle, and our adoption experience with A.A.R.F. was nothing but positive! Thank you to the A.A.R.F. team for our new dream puppy!!
