On New Years Eve – I saw Jill’s networking picture at Lancaster.
She is the cutest pug/boston Terrier mix. But I didn’t know anyone who could pull from Lancaster and that shelter is very high kill and also three hours away from where I live.
I called the shelter and they said she was super urgent and they couldn’t guarantee she would be there by morning.
I called my friends at Gone to the Dogs rescue and they found someone to pull her for me.
He took her to rescue oasis, a boarding facility nearby. We couldn’t find transport down to us but another rescue, Sunny Skies, agreed to take her and they adopted her out shortly after she arrived.
Gorgeous Tilly was also a pug/boston mix. She was at Kern County. When Gone to the Dogs went to pull another dog, they saw her and pulled her for us. She stayed in foster for a few weeks with Trudy and then she was transported down to Katella.
We received 10 applications on her in the first week. She was adopted out to a great family and now has a Boxer brother.
Shiloh and Mimi were both on Baldwin Park’s networking lists.
Shiloh was a sweet chihuahua mix puppy with a broken leg. The shelter paid to get her leg fixed.
He was adopted shortly after we pulled him and now has a great life with his human brother.
We pulled Mimi because we had someone contact us who was interested in her.
But once we pulled her the adopter backed out! We didn’t have a foster for her so she went into boarding.
But boarding was very stressful for her. She was extremely scared there. Luckily, our rescue friends at Collar of Hope found an adopter for her so we transferred her up to them.
