Animal gets lost, abandoned, given up; animal lands at shelter; human goes to shelter looking for pet, meets animal; human adopts animal; animal adopts human; a mutually beneficial and loving relationship is born!
Few things are as heartwarming as a successful animal adoption story–and our friends over at petfinder.com should know since that is pretty much the number one mission of their business! We picked a few of our favorite stories from Petfinder’s reader-submitted Happy Tails to share with our Care2 members.
Do you have a great adoption story to share? Tell us about it in the comments section at the end of this post. Happy tails to you!
From Stephanie of Wappingers Falls , NY. Adopted from Animal Refuge League, Westbrook, ME
Seven years after the death of my very first guinea pig, I decided it was time to allow another one into my life. As soon as I saw Schroeder’s face and read his description, I knew I had found the pig for me. It might seem crazy to drive from NY to Maine and back in one day to adopt a critter, but that trip was well worth it. I have had Schroeder for three years now, and he brings me so much joy every single day. He is quite the amusing character, fully living up to the Petfinder description of “Mr. Personality.” Thank you, ARLGP, for connecting me with my little buddy.
