Some of our "archives" (read: binder of photos) have been around for quite some time. Sharing multiple stories multiple times can sometimes lead to letters getting separated from the photos included. This is one such situation where we have photos but no letter or note with them anymore. This kitty's relaxed pose was too good not to share!

He listens very well, has loved everyone that had came over to visit!! Oh and he's s bed hog, lol!! We just love him, thank u so much for our little boy!!
When we send a pet to a rescue group, we love to hear about their progress. Though we don't have a message assuring us of Herbert's adoption, he is clearly in good hands who have his best interests at heart. Part of why we thoroughly vet our rescue partners is to ensure that pets are going to a place that can provide improvement to their situation either through a one-on-one foster home, medical care, advanced training, or simply a sister rescue who has the resources to address one more orphan in need.

Just a friendly letter on the one year mark of the addition to the Pott Family.
On July 28th 2012 we adopted Ladybird aka: Commander Adele (a bluetick coonhound). When we first brought her home, we thought, "What in the world were with thinking?" However with a lot of patience and work, she has turned into a good old hound dog who we love very much. I do believe we have made great progress; she is a very happy and busy girl. She keeps everything out of our yard (birds, bunnies, cats, mice and any other animals). She gets along well with her sister as we did not think this would ever happen.
She has however managed to escape our yard on several occasions even though we have underground fencing, training collars, name tags, and microchips, but with the help of our newly purchased pet tracking (GPS) system we have managed to locate her. It's been a long year, but we are very happy with her! Thank you to Petfinder.com and Rockingham County Shelter for helping us find and adopt our loving and sweet Ladybird.
Sounds like you have had quite the adjustment to a high-energy houndy! Thank you for your patience and persistence helping Ladybird be the best dog she can be and taking the time and resources to help keep her safe. So many hounds arrive at our animal shelter without any form of ID and no owners come forward to take them home. Helping these special, silly, goofy dogs adjust to a life indoors with a family can take some time, but it sounds like Ladybird has hit the jackpot for a loving forever home! Thank you Pott Family!
Thank you so much for the update on Deena! She looks so comfortable and at home. Thank you so much for adopting!
Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful story with us. Daisy looks so loved and happy, and we love seeing how your family has changed over the years! Thank you for adopting her and giving her a wonderful home!
After a few days of exploring and getting more familiar with the new environment (via Naomi's bedroom), they were a little more confident. They would jump up on the bed, play, and meow when we left them for too long. When they finally ate, Naomi was very relieved and she was also relieved when they went in the litter box. Toothless had a little trouble the first few times, she went outside the box, but she eventually did go in the litter box. To which Naomi cheered a lot.
They had a good first week in the bedroom and then Naomi couldn't get enough sleep with 2 little kittens running around and causing trouble. So they were moved to the family room, where they had plenty of toys and room to run around and not disturb anyone. We've slowly been introducing them to different rooms of the house, all the while keeping a close eye on them. So far they have access to the family room and and the sun room. We hope that soon, they will have free range of the house!
They got all their vaccinations and shots and are going to be spayed and neutered next week (7/20). Both are strictly indoor cats, the only time they are ever outside is when they are taken to the vet in their pet carriers. You may also notice that their claws are colored, no it's not nail polish (everyone thinks that, haha!), they are softpaws, little non-toxic vinyl caps with a smooth end that simply glue onto the cat's claws. The caps and dry glue are non-toxic, so if the cat swallows them, the cap will just pass harmlessly through their digestive system. They are a great alternative to declawing and the cats look fashionable and adorable.
In the last month or so, we've seen the biggest change in Pip, who would always run away when someone approached him or tried to pet him. Now he is the biggest snuggle bug. He loves to be picked up and will sit in your lap while you watch TV. Toothless is snuggly too, but it's only with her mama (Naomi). Both cats love to give kitty hugs (rub all over our legs) and they both chirp and meow when they want attention. We can hardly believe it's already been 3 months since we adopted them. Pip and Toothless have grown so much and we can't believe that they were ever so tiny! We are so happy that we found them and we're so happy they're a part of our family now! Both seem very happy with us, but we wish they would stop growing up so fast!
Thank you so much! We'll try to keep you updated better, with more pictures!

Thank you so much for such a lovely update on our shy babies! They were so timid here, with all the changes in their lives before arriving at the RHSPCA. Your patience and compassion have clearly paid off! Thank you for giving these kitties such a loving home and giving them the time to blossom!
Thank you so much for memorializing Dakota in such a meaningful way. Your memorial donation helps animals awaiting adoption by providing food, medical care, and comfort. Thank you again!
