Nov. 20th: TMHPR Pupdate

Well, we have all made it to Saturday!!
And we have had another FABULOUS week of adoptions and new intakes at Take Me Home Pet Rescue (TMHPR).  The Pupdate Blog is the perfect place to update our followers as to who we have been able to save this week!  
In the last blog we introduced you to Flynn.  this beautiful boy was snagged by our Founder and Director, Elise from the streets of South Dallas.  He has been at the Adoption Center for about three days now and he is learning that no one is going to hurt him ever again.
Flynn chilling in his kennel when he was brought into the Adoption Center.
He shows signs of stress with heavy breathing when a volunteer enters his kennel.
Volunteers spend brief amounts of time just sitting in the kennel or gently laying a hand on his back.
Flynn went to his first vet visit.  He was checked out by Dr. Erica.
Flynn was found to have puncture wounds on his body.
Most likely obtained when defending himself from other animals.
He is now on high powered antibiotics and pain medication.
Flynn will go back to the vet in two weeks to have his wounds reassessed.
At that time, he will also receive the remainder of his shots and a Heartworm test.
To have all intake vetting completely during this first visit would have been just too stressful on this sweet boy.

Flynn will be at the adoption center for at least the next two weeks.  This allows or maximum interaction with volunteers and kennel techs.  He can also be monitored more regularly and his progress charted.  Once he is feeling better, both mentally and physically, then we will find the perfect foster home for him.

Flynn was not our only intake this week.  Sadly, there are always more to save.

Meet Cindy.  She was an owner surrender at a rural high kill shelter.  Her owner was going into a nursing home
and did not have anyone to take this sweet girl.  It is evident that this girl was well loved.  She is
housebroken, loves attention and is healthy.  We hope to find her a home quickly.
Cindy only spent one night at the Adoption Center.
We have the best fosters.  They never fail to step up when they know there is a need.
We are able to find out so much more about a dog when they are living in a foster home.
And who is this?  Well, the crazy volunteer is Caroline.  Oh, not what you meant?
The pup getting a belly rub is Snickers.
Snickers was also an owner surrender, but in a rural shelter West of the Metroplex.
We had a wonderful volunteer spend about five and a half hours on the road to go and save him.
Owner surrenders are typically in more danger at a kill shelter.
They are not given the opportunity of the time that a stray is afforded.  No one is looking for an owner surrender.
They have to hope to get adopted before the shelter becomes full.
Snickers is a one year old sweet boy.  He is playful and such a sweetheart.
He was neutered yesterday and will be entering his foster home on Monday.

Have you met sweet Parker?

This sweet boy was found by one of our volunteers wandering around Fair Park in Dallas.  And this is no place for a sweet little guy.  He was found to have a microchip; however, his owners had never missed him.  And they didn’t want him back.

We can’t figure out why.  He is such a sweet and loving guy.  Never too far from his foster mom.  He loves kids, other dogs and loves to ride in the car.

Parker loves to go shopping with his Foster Mom.
He is such a great companion for adults, kids and other dogs.
Such a beautiful boy.
He is going to make an amazing addition to someone’s family.
Here is Parker enjoying an evening relaxing at home.
Resident dog and TMHPR Alum, Macy is a fabulous mentor.
Parker loves hanging out with Macy.

Parker loves going in the car for carpool duties.
And who is that snuggled up with her Pound Puppy?  Well, that is Pauli Grace!
Pauli is one of only two of the Brew Crew girls who are still available for adoption.
She is a sweet girl who loves to lounge with the humans in her home.
Pauli would be a great addition to someone’s family.
