This past Saturday we were invited to an adoption event here in Greenville, SC. However, since I had a previously scheduled NipFest and was unable to attend, I sent my Dad to represent us at the event. The adoption event was held at Southern Fried Green Tomatoes, a fine eating establishment, and featured not one, but two animal adoption groups located here in the Upsate of South Carolina. Let me take just a minute to tell you about both groups.
Foster Paws Rescue is a non-profit group of animal lovers that seek to protect and provide for homeless dogs and cats in Greenville and surrounding counties. They dedicate their time and hearts to helping animals find loving homes and loving families. They do not have a physical shelter, instead they rely on a network of experienced foster homes to give the animals the one-on-one attention they deserve. Thanks to Diana Riglet, President of Foster Paws Rescue for inviting us to the event.
Greenville County Animal Care Services operates a full service, open admission animal shelter facility that serves Greenville County residents and their pets. They do not turn anyone away. They take in over 20,000 homeless and forgotten pets every year and work with many local animal welfare agencies to provide intake, adoption, spay-neuter, pet wellness services, fostering and humane education. They also offer a low cost spay and neuter program to help those of us helping feral cats. Thanks to Susan Bufano, Community Relations Coordinator, for breaking away from the hectic pace to spend a few minutes explaining the wonderful services.
It was a beautiful sunny day and the crowds were consistant and filled with enthusiasm, and needless to say, the dogs and cats were purrfect!
Susan Bufano was quite busy making sure that everything was complete for the many adoptions taking place.
Here is one of the lucky pups that found that special forever home and is just waiting for the paperwork to be completed.
Local radio personality Bob Levy not only continually promoted the event, he came, he saw, he adopted…a puppy!
This little one was stepping right up to make sure that everyone knew that a forever home was at the top of his wish list.
And look at these little ones, so cute and so hopeful that someone will be looking just for them. How can you not fall in love with those sweet faces?
The event was fabulous and thanks again for inviting us to be a part of it! Adopt cats and dogs, we deserve it!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrr! Zip! Later!
