Dogs!

The puppies are doing really well. Still healthy and they had 1st round shots last Thursday so that is a really good sign. Sometimes when you give puppies shots they go into full blown parvo because the vaccination is actually a live virus so you are actually giving the puppy parvo so it builds an immunity. It is always a risk with pound puppies when you give them that first parvo shot. KNOCKING ON WOOD they are still healthy.

They are going next week to get fixed. YAY! They will hopefully all be in homes in about 2 weeks. Figures crossed!

I think I might be getting in a dog with a crippled leg. What I have been told is that it is an old injury, maybe broken and then healed on it's own. UGH! People make me sick. Totally don't understand. Anyways, I might be getting that one on Thursday.

I seem to be getting a lot of dogs in but not getting any dogs adopted :-( This is making me very sad. I have recently acquired some new foster homes so that is awesome but I really need to get dogs in homes ASAP! Can't save more if I can't get any adopted.

Cross your paws that I get some homes FAST!

I am thinking about having an adoption event at Tractor Supply so with advertising that should get some dogs at least looked at. I think I am going to all Pet Smart... not the one where the dogs got sick but another one and see if I can do an event there. That one is hard because of it's location but I am so afraid to go back to the other one. I don't know what to do... I have met so many GREAT families that I would have never met if it wasn't for that store but loosing 3 puppies and going through what I went through.. I just don't know if it is worth it.

I don't know what I should do about it?? Thoughts?

What about setting up something through a local vet's office? Maybe one that is in a good location? Maybe the vet would give some kind of first visit discount to those who adopt. Just a thought. I admire your work.

Try Moochie & Co at Southpark Mall perhaps? They have rescue events.
