Lauren and Chris wrote,  Athena has been a part of our family now for over 2 months. We adopted her the day after she arrived at the shelter, and we are so glad. She's the sweetest girl. She's playful, smart, and she loves to cuddle. She's our little fur-child! Chris and I have been bringing her to our family events, and she is loved by so many!

Jennifer wrote, Abbie came and immediatley made herself at home. The picture of the kids in the floor at bedtime with Abbie was eight hours after coming home. She was ready for prayers and bedtime. I have never met a cat so laid back and comfortable. We are so thankful we went back and asked for help meeting Abbie. She is in her forever home.

In the last 6 months I lost both of my dogs Sadie and Sam from complications of doggy old age (13 and 15 years young). My quiet house and my heart knew it was time for a new buddy. Roscoe (Sunny Bunny) looked right at me and I knew he was mine! When I first brought him home he was scared of everything...other people, other dogs. He is growing every day! He meets knew friends around my house everyday...and LOVES to play fetch with a tennis ball. He fills my heart with joy.

Caroline wrote,  Its me Lucy, I am doing with my new family. Its been two weeks since I came to live with my new family and I couldn't imagine life without them. I'm their princess. I have a older fury brother named Dusty (he is 9) and I have a younger human brother named Joseph (2), so I am the only girl. Mom and dad spoil me. I sleep in bed with mom and dad and I'm dads shadow most days. When Joseph comes home from school he takes me on long walks and lets me watch Mickey Mouse with him at bedtime. I am so happy, that I have stopped having accidents in the house and I don't hide food anymore. My mommy just told me the other night, that she couldn't imagine our family without me.

 Rick wrote,  On March 1st we adopted a 3 month old kitten. His name was Napoleon. He was brought in at about ten weeks old with a non functioning left front leg from a birth defect. He had severe nerve damage and muscle atrophy that rendered the leg useless. On top of that he was malnourished due to intestinal parasites. We fell in love with him while visiting with our Girl Scout troop. We loved how feisty he was only three days after his surgery. He was lucky enough to have an awesome foster mom named Mary to take care of him until he was well enough to come to his forever home. Mary carried him around in a sling to keep him still while he healed. It is not easy to keep a kitten still! Napoleon has been renamed Triskelion or Trisky for short. Triskelion is a Greek word for a symbol with three parts.Trisky has no limitations. He is happy, playful and very curious. His best friend is an 85 lb black Lab named Daisy who tolerates his sneak attacks very well. He is very loved by two girls ages seven and ten.

Angela wrote, My children got two young guinea pigs about seven years ago. One was named Ginny and the other Pig(since they couldn't decide on a name). Last year Ginny passed away and I did not want Pig to be alone. We adopted Miss Piggy (long hair) last year and Rainbow (short hair dark) this year. It is a great thing to adopt animals. Our dog is from a shelter as well.

Jax 4 15C

Cassie wrote, Thirteen years ago on January 2, 2003 I adopted Link, later named Gauge, from the old cap center on I-10, for my new fiancée as an engagement gift. Gauge was with us for 13 years until Brain and Liver cancer forced us to end his suffering in March 2015.    After mourning the loss of our baby we felt led by God to go and see if any black cats picked us to be their parents. We weren’t sure if we were looking for a baby or an older cat, we were just following God’s lead. Then we found Jaxon! He was very sick, but he was head-butting us, laying on his back in our arms, and purring like crazy through his sneezes! We knew he had chosen us to be his mommy and daddy. We were so happy to be adopting again! Jax, was unable to come home that day because he is 10 months old and hadn’t been neutered yet. Waiting until Sunday to pick him up was so hard, but we did it! Now, two weeks and a few days later, of being a Lewis, Jaxon has become a permeant fixture on his new cat tree, from the CAP store, and on my back all night long! Something else special about Jax is that he was admitted on the day my grandmother passed away. She had always wanted to adopt a cat after moving from Florida to Texas, but her health wouldn’t allow it. So I feel like we were lead to Jaxon by both God and my Grandmother! She would have loved him, and we couldn’t love him more!
