WISHING YOU HEALTH, HAPPINESS, AND A BRIGHTER NEW YEAR
Dear friends and pals,
Yes, it has been a hard year, an awful year for many of us. We’re facing loss that most of us have never experienced. Yet we are asking you to help the abandoned dogs and cats we rescue.
If I were not so clear about the dire urgency of their need, I might not ask for your help. But needs like medical care cannot wait. We are deeply grateful to those of you who have not forgotten that the animals still desperately need help.
Scooter's Pals always take our dogs back if they're ever at risk again. So far we've found homes for every returned dog in either a new home if they're still adoptable or in a Sanctuary home. We have about eight dogs in our Sanctuary Program now and we've had as many as twenty. And just like the thousands we've rescued since we began twelve years ago, our Sanctuary dogs are given vet care, food, and a loving home for as long as they're with us.
We never put down an animal unless it reached the natural end of life or has a condition that's so painful that in our vet's judgment, life has become unbearable. We are committed to giving our rescues the best quality of life possible.
We are proud of the work we do in your name — and in my beloved Scooter's name too. Thank you for including us in your charitable efforts this year. You’re making a gift of life and love to abandoned animals.
With hope for the future,
P.. I want to introduce you to BUddy...a very special dog! Just this month, Buddy overcame incredible odds and found his forever home. Start reading his marvelous story here...
Ten year old Buddy, said to be blind and deaf, was running out of time at the shelter. Most rescues decline to save dogs like Buddy because they perceive that finding a good home quickly to be very difficult. Well, we all know what that means. Dogs like Buddy are often left behind to die...quietly left alone to die.
Soon after Scooter's Pals saved Buddy, we noticed he actually does have some sight and hearing, and he gets around just fine. With his energy and joy in life, mostly-blind-and-deaf. Buddy just isn't a "special needs" dog.
We were certain Buddy would find a good home if we networked him well. He has the sweetest personality! No fear, no biting, potty trained, affectionate. What more could a good dog owner want?
Buddy has received a number of applications, but he is lovin' life right where he is now. He’s in a loving foster-to-adopt home with two cats that have fallen in love with him. They purr and groom him and he looks for them each night to join him in bed with their mom. We think that Buddy is in the perfect home.
Bless Buddy and his kitties. If this is not a great holiday story that reminds us, even now, of life and love and hope for the future, I don't know what is!
