Adoption at Any Age

Hank, the second from the left,  a recent WARL alum,
enjoys a treat with his new best-buds.  



Finding a  home for a "senior" dog can be difficult at best.  But, when you have a super-terrific foster home with a stellar placement record, you know that it is just a matter of time before the perfect home is found.  Hank is a prime example --  an older abandoned dog finds himself in a shelter, endears himself to shelter staff, loyal volunteer/fosterer agrees to take the little guy, and the rest as they say is "history".

The Girls on the Run web site (www.girlsontherun.orgadvocates Power through Service -- 
What a great way to kick-off the 100th Anniversary of Be Kind to Animals Week, May 3-9.  When asked to  "brainstorm institutions in our community that could use our help,” the Aidan Montessori School Girls on the Run chapter decided to fund “pets that don’t have homes”.  WARL is the recipient of the group's very successful bake sale.  Tomorrow, the eight take-charge animal advocates and their dedicated coaches will visit the shelter and present WARL with the $250 they raised during a successfully, delicious bake sale.

Say That Again, Please

"You want me to do what?" asks Mackenzie of her guardian.  If ever there was an expression that deserves to go viral, it's this one.   Mackenzie, formerly Eskimo, is celebrating her first month in her new home.   She has a kitten bff  named Edgar and a  two-legged friend who insists that Mackenzie become something called housebroken.  To emphasize the housebreaking thing, the two-legged takes Maclenzie for plenty of walks.
