Cookie

Adopted by Lois Ullman

Here is Cookie! I adopted her after Thanksgiving. She turned 1 year old in May and has brought so much happiness into my life. After losing the last of my 3 dogs the weekend after Thanksgiving I was so upset and depressed. A friend referred me to the ARL. Cookie and I bonded through her cage. She is an absolute sweetheart and I thank the staff at ARL for taking such good care of her.

Gail (Foster Parent) – you did a wonderful job of fostering her.  We thank you for what you do, giving these little fur babies a great start in life.

Sunny, Sassy, and Shadow

Adopted by Holly Kachel

About 2 weeks ago my family adopted Sunny (Athena). Instantly my other 2 cats Sassy (Joon) and Shadow (Benny) who we adopted in January, took to her. They enjoy bird watching, playing with each other and their toys. Sassy is like a mother to Sunny always watching her and Shadow play and if they get a little to rough she steps in. They are doing great and get a lot of love!

-Holly Kachel


 Puggy & Ginger

Adopted by Sue & Dave Roth

In November 2016, our previous min pin, Jake, crossed over the rainbow bridge, just 2 days short of 4 years of adopting him from your grey muzzle program.

He was a very special little man to us. The pain of losing him was unbearable not only to us but to our puggle, Miss Puggy, as well. We had no intentions of adopting another furbaby, but Puggy went into depression.

One day in February 2017, I was scrolling through Facebook and came across a live feed on Y102 (I believe). One of your staff members was there with a puggle named Ginger. She was only a few months older than Puggy. A perfect match!

A year later, Ginger and Puggy are the best of friends! Ginger is such a sweetheart that makes you wonder what kind of people would want to get rid of her. She is so loved and is quite a happy girl with her tail always wagging.

With Jake and Ginger both being seniors when adopted, I can’t stress enough to people to not overlook the older furbabies. They need loving, too!

I am so grateful to ARL for caring for my furbabies before they found their furever home with us. You should be very proud of your hard work.

Thank you so much.

-Sue and Dave Roth

Adopted by Amy Mawson

We adopted Holly last Summer.  We already had the Bichon Poodle pictured here with her and a Boston Terrier as well.  Holly is very protective of her two buddies, always going out into yard whenever they go and playing the fence game with her neighbor doggie friends.  She also likes going to Bruster’s for her doggie sundaes.

Wally

Adopted by Jason Gregro

This is Wally and we got him about 5 years ago from the ARL. He was a drop off by his owner and the surrender reason said inconvenience to lifestyle. I snatched him up right away especially since I had just lost my yellow lab who looked just like him, pink nose and all to cancer about a week before. I know it sounds a little soon, but we were dropping off Redner’s receipts and my son walked down the big dog kennel ahead of me and said Mommy there is a dog that looks like Nuna (which was the name of  lab we had just lost). It just seemed meant to be. Neighbors didn’ t even know I got another dog when walking him around neighborhood since they looked almost identical. He is my son’ s best friend and We Love him so much.

Tilly & Mr. Meowington

Adopted by Patricia Frymyer

We could not be happier with these cats!  They are awesome!  Mister is sneaky though – he likes to swat food from our hands and walk off with it… I think he learned that from the dogs!  You can tell they received a lot of love – I know Tilly was in a foster home and it’s obvious how well she was treated there.  She’s a super sweet cat (but, she’s a blanket thief, so we have to be careful! LOL)  And I scratch my head every day wondering who got rid of Mr. Meowington?  What a sweet cat!!  Someone loved him once; now we’re the lucky ones to have him!

-Patricia


Norm

Adopted by Tracey Carabello

My husband had been diagnosed with cancer and had not worked since Nov of 2013, so I was working 2 jobs to try and make ends meet. Our children were all grown, and therefore John was alone most of the day, every day. I was working at the ARL on the weekends, and had been walking the big dogs that most people weren’t…and there was Norm! He was a big boy! A Cane (pronounced “Cah-nay”) Corso/Italian Mastiff who had been surrendered by his family – with droopy jowls, golden-brown eyes, and beautiful brindle coloring. After walking him a couple times, the Kennel Manager asked if I would consider fostering him because he was really deteriorating emotionally, having been at the shelter for almost 2 months. My husband was not in favor of it – he didn’t think he could take care of a dog – but I was certain that taking care of a dog would be beneficial…so we brought Norm home as a Foster. Within a week there was no way we could imagine our lives without him! He was my husband’s constant companion: his reason to get up and moving (when Norm needed to go out), and his source of comfort after chemo. Norm seemed to know exactly what level of activity John was capable of…if some tennis ball play in the yard was good, or if he just needed to lay by the couch all day and let John stroke his back on those really bad days. John lost his battle on April 17th of 2016, but they had a wonderful 10 months together – each of them making the other’s life infinitely better than it would have been, alone. I am so grateful to the ARL for bringing Norm into our lives. He was an absolute God-send to my husband during his illness – and to me, knowing that John was not ever alone. And, now, I am so grateful that I have Norm to come home to, myself, at night! His unconditional love and sloppy wet kisses make every day so much better!
