When Bobby left my fosterer's I thought I would be next . . . then they told me that I was staying, that I would live with them for the rest of my life. I can't tell you how happy I am. I know I have grown in confidence since being with them - they make me feel good - and now I can continue to grow and become the dog I know I can be. Life is just wonderful!
Well I thought I was "at home" with my fosterer and all the other dogs. Then one day a lady came along with a dog that looked amazingly like me, only smaller. We got on really well from word go and had a good play. He was obedient too and so off we went in a car together. They keep telling me I have my passport and will be going to the UK. Stan, my new mate, says it's OK and he'll be there too. So I'm really looking forward to this new adventure.
It is thanks to our refuge volunteers that Plume, formerly a feral cat, has become an adopted cat. He left the refuge 18 months after having arrived - what a transformation! A magnificent boy - have a magnificent life.
Lucky Lou, this beautiful lemon English Setter pup, has found his forever home up in the mountains with a family who know setters through and through. He is growing into a wonderful dog and is thoroughly loved . . . though not spoiled!!! Hard luck, original owner, you really really missed out on this one!
I am one of the lucky ones! The dreadful leishmaniosis had got me and I was taking a time to recover. My fosterer took great care of me and then decided she couldn't let me go! The better I got, the more lively and full of joy I became. I just love living among so many other lucky dogs, cats, birds, and far too many other animals to mention. My life is wonderful.
After fostering these three kittens were returned to the refuge where they represented a great "bargain". Unlike many refuge cats they were fully vaccinated, house-trained and used to being handled in a home environment. Fostering made a huge difference to these three beauties.
Sometimes things happen for a reason. Jaeger's original fosterer injured her knee and was laid up. He was getting bored . . . and consequently naughty so it was thought best to find a new home for him.
Just onto our books had come a new fostering family who knew setters - a gift from the universe! And so he went to stay with them - and it was a match made in heaven. He even looked like their other two setters! It was not long before fostering became adoption and there is no-one more delighted than us for this boy.
And suddenly, after more than two years of waiting, along comes a family to the refuge and they fall in love with him. Now he has a home. We do not know their name - but thank them from the bottom of our heart! Enjoy life to the full, dear Lemon.
Christmas was approaching and there was no interest in adopting Ulysse. The kennels where he was staying were full over the Xmas period - and therefore the people running the kennels were also fully committed. We needed somewhere urgently for Ulysse to go. An appeal on Facebook brought a number of interested people. The "winners" were up in the mountains beyond Pau. Ulysse was going to spend Xmas there . . . and he did . . . very successfully . . . so much so that he stayed and became a delightful part of their family. Failed fosterers abound - and we are always happy when they do! For Ulysse we know that he has finally found the love, the care and the family life he needs.
