Zion’s Happily Ever After

Zion is a wonderful pooch who struggled in the shelter environment because of barrier reactivity, he just didn’t like feeling stuck. We are happy to share that Zion scored the jackpot with his new home. His adopter is a horse trainer and he gets to hang out in a big open space with new friends ten times his size! His adopter says “He is so wonderful, I am excited to give him a good life!”
We are so happy for Zion and his new friends!

Rueben’s Happily Ever After

Rueben is the sweetest Tabby kitten who has found the amazing home that he deserves. His new family says “He is delightful. We are all so in love with him and grateful we found him. He has made friends with our adult cat (adopted from Animal Friends Alliance), our boxer mix (adopted from Animal Friends Alliance) and our Weimaraner. Life is good.” 

Otter’s Happily Ever After

Otter, the two-year-old retriever/lab mix, came to us after an accident left her with a life-threatening leg injury. She was brought to our clinic where it was determined that the injury was too great to save the leg. Dr. Marsella, the shelter veterinarian at our Taft Hill Campus, performed a lifesaving surgery and she was placed in an amazing foster home to heal.

Otter recovered like a champion in her foster home and her story resonated with a new family who joyfully adopted her. Otter is now enjoying the love and care of her new home.

Hagrid’s Happily Ever After

Hagrid was originally adopted as a kitten, but he made his way back to FCCRSNC in spring of 2019, when he was about two years old. When he arrived back at our shelter, Hagrid was often easily agitated and his behavior was unpredictable. As Hagrid got more  comfortable, however, his sweetness soon began to shine. He wasn’t too happy sharing his space with other cats in the shelter, but for several months, he was our beloved office cat, “helping” us to sweep and making himself comfortable on our laps—and our laptops! One day, a potential adopter stopped by our shelter with another kitty in mind. That cat had already been adopted, so our Adoptions Program Manager suggested Hagrid. When the adopter met Hagrid, it was an instant love connection! The adopter needed a few weeks to work out a change to his living situation, but he was so committed to Hagrid, he would come by almost daily while he prepared to bring Hagrid home. Hagrid’s new person reports he is doing well. He says Hagrid relaxed on the couch as soon as he got home! We wish them both many happy years of love and companionship!
