That is how the numbers here slowly creep up every year. 2 wonderful and lucky animals went home yesterday to their new forever homes where they will be adored and loved.
Wilma, now re-named to Sugar went home with one of the volunteers, Zoe. Zoe previously had a diabetic cat and is no stranger to giving insulin. Zoe and her mom Karen have done everything they can to make sure Sugar feels safe in her new home.
Olvia went home with Tammy where she will be spoiled more than I can even imagine. She really is a very sweet cat.
In came Shane, Noel and Oliver.
When the volunteers arrived Saturday morning most of them reach out to pet Shane and said "Hi Maud ..." and then paused, laughed and said "Oh you're not Maud!" He really does look very much like her and is a very sweet dog that has already made himself quite at home here.
Noel is, as Nicole said a heartbreaking story--losing a loving home after 13 years is just so sad. But given time Noel will be happy here. We already know she loves brushing but I don't think she likes the peanut butter pirate cookies because she did not eat the one I gave her and so gave it to Jelly.
Oliver is a big boy, He is young, diabetic and kinda pissed right now about being here. He is in a cage in the back cat area and emitting low growls. But when I approached the cage he stopped growling and let me pet him. The marking on his face are incredible--it looks like he has a goatee and mustache. I think we should call him Sir Oliver! Because he wants to feel distinguished.
And there are many. many more special SAINTS animals that would love to be spoiled. For more information about adopting visit here: http://www.saintsrescue.ca/helping/adopt.htm
