I know we made our big announcement earlier this week but we are still kvelling over the realization that we have completed over 1,000 adoptions already! Our Facebook post on the topic brought out many a “congratulations” with updates on some of the happy tails that make up that first thousand gotcha days, and that just serves as a great reminder of why we do what we do.
Lucy may have marked a milestone but her adoption wasn’t the only extra noteworthy one we had this week as resident senior statesman, Jackson, also moved into a new home!
Also adopted were: Savannah, Molly (now Scarlet), Hazel & Fritz (now called Muggsy).
We have a lot of updates and pictures of alumni to share this week:
Hank FKA Shaggy
It has been 6 months on the 4th of Nov. since we adopted our dog, it has been a changing time for us but we think were getting there, in the past 2 weeks we see a change in our pet, he wants to be with us all the time, he just started to greet us when we come home, he walks around most of the time with his tail up, he starting to act like a dog and not something that has no future, we love him!! We take him to the dog park about 3 times a week , he has always liked being around other dogs, he also love our son in laws big black lab, they play for hours together, they truly love each other , we cant wait to see him in the next six months
Tico FKA Jovi
We missed your race! I am so sorry but we are very busy. We love TLC!
Tico is our favorite legged friend~! Many thanks.
Cody FKA Gingerbread
We’re so blessed to have this little guy in our lives 🙂
Joey FKA Ulysses
Just a short note to update TLC on the progress of my wonderful little rescue buddy I named Joey. He is an amazing treasure and has become the most popular dog at the Overlook dog park here in Lancaster and has been named by the members as the “Mayor” because of his loving and playful personality, especially with the large dogs. He stirs up and directs the play of his large and small furry pals. Several weeks ago he got together with his brother Urv at my home. Attached are a few pictures of him with some of his friends. The 3rd pic is his brother (litter mate) Urv. Couldn’t be happier with Joey.
Lola is doing great and we just love having her as part of our family. She is great with my daughters and a little love bug, she loves affection and gets a lot of it in our house. We are still working on the chewing, she gets in to the girls toys so if if u have any tips on that we would appreciate it.
Pepper FKA Demi
Pepper’s mom submitted her happy tail to the Petco Foundation & Halo Pets #HolidayWishes2015 campaign. Hopefully, her happy tail will encourage others to adopt as well. We were very excited to be notified that Pepper’s story landed us in the finalists and are just waiting to hear what the next steps will be after our grant request is reviewed.
Hunter FKA Dillon
Here is Hunter at 3 months old! He loves going on walks and playing with all his toys, he’s great at fetching. He’s been getting along really well with our dog and our neighbors dog, he occasionally goes over for some play time. He’s been a great addition to the family!
Piper FKA Hali
We have officially changed her name to “Piper”, and she is adapting very well to the house and surroundings. We have her first Vet appointment tonight, and are going to present them with all the necessary background information. I just confirmed my pet insurance this morning, but was going to check with the vet tonight on what they feel may be the best choice for the dog. Piper has been sleeping in a crate the past three nights, and is slowly adapting, but still whines for the first 30 minutes or so… Once we get a clean bill of health from the vet, we plan on bringing her to obedience classes. We will be sure to send over pictures, but attached is one with our son… They are becoming best friends.
Harrison FKA Jonah
I’m not even sure if it’s legal to be this cute! We can’t believe that it’s only been a week since this little guy wagged his way into our hearts. We’re so happy to have Harrison (FKA Jonah) as a part of our family. Thank you TLC for bringing him to us!
Kahlua FKA Sal
Kahlua (FKA Sal) is doing so great. He’s coming up on 2 years old and weighs about 85 lbs. He’s incredibly smart but can be very stubborn! He has lots of energy and loves being outside. He makes us laugh every day, and we are so grateful to have him in our lives.
Nova FKA Joni
Happy 1st birthday to Nova and all her “J” siblings! Thank you to TLC for bringing this energetic, sweet, clown dog into our lives! She has brought such joy to our home and has truly changed our first dog, Pippas life by showing her life isn’t so scary! Watching the bond these 2 sisters have warms my heart so much! Despite destroying 2 sofas, countless blankets, our window trim and walls, we couldn’t love this girl anymore and are so grateful for her! Can’t imagine life without her!
Kevin FKA Bandit
We absolutely adore Kevin (formerly known as Bandit)! He is settling in beautifully, and we cannot believe how fortunate we are to have him! Thanks so much to you and TLC for making it all happen and for all that you do.
Oscar FKA Abner
We changed his name to Oscar, which he responded to very quickly. He’s doing great! He’s really adjusted well to his new home and is having fun at the dog park we take him to every day. We love having him home with us!
Dawkins FKA Slye
We love Slye, but we actually changed his name to Dawkins! He is settling great. He is such a snuggle bug. Bella is getting used to having a little brother. He likes to play a lot and she is getting used to having a playmate. We adore him here are a few pictures! Thanks so much for checking in on us!
River FKA Corrie
River (FKA Corrie) is 5 months old today, and it’s been 2 months since she came home with me!
Just thought I’d share a picture from our fall outing 🙂
Bear FKA Laker
We adopted Bear in May, and he recently was the star of our engagement shoot. We thought you all would love his handsomeness.
Finn FKA Woody
Finn (aka Woody) wanted to take a few minutes away from his string cheese, squirrel chasing, lounging on the sofa, filled day, to say hi and thank you again to everyone at TLC. Can’t believe 2 years have passed. He’s very loved and has us all properly trained
Jordy FKA Zion
Woo Hoo! Congrats and for bringing Jordy (we changed his name from Zion) into our lives! I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since we were lucky enough to get him! J <3
Tank FKA Tink
I happily adopted my little dog Tank from this rescue service. Can’t believe they’re only a year and a half old. It seems like I’ve always had Tank, this will help remind me it’s only been 2 years this November. I only had him 3 weeks when he took his first airplane trip. Here’s a pic of my son, Jake & Tank. Btw, my son used to be a Marine tank commander.
Sandy FKA Adrienne
Congrats and thank you for my sweet baby, Sandy! Just had her 2nd birthday party on Tuesday
Ruck FKA Gale
We can’t believe it’s only been just over a year with Ruck (FKA Gale) in our lives. We quickly can’t remember a time without him, and it wouldn’t have been a match without you guys! Endless thanks guys! Happy 1,000, we’re sure there will be many many more!
Burt aka Roberto
July 27, 2014 was our lucky day when we adopted this unbelievably happy, sweet guy, Burt. Thank you for doing all you do to save these amazing animals and here’s to another 1,000 adoptions! <3
Moe FKA Buddy
Thank you for Moe! Congratulations!
So happy to be a part of this 1000! Roman has been living it up. Best dog ever!!
Congratulations and thanks from Sandy (tan)! We love her can’t imagine she and her brother Smitty (black) without each other.
Here are some more pics of the pups above as well as recent pics of Urv & Angus
