Sailor Rob Adoption

Sailor Rob was adopted by his foster family today – not exactly a surprise since he never made it to a single MTP event and most of us had never seen this gorgeous Pyranees-mix boy!  A stray found by a friend of Dana, he was named Sailor after another Great Pyranees who was fostered by Jenny several years ago but suffered from heartworms and passed away, and Rob Norland, long-time supporter of and foster for RHS, who passed away in 2018.  Sailor was fostered and adopted by new volunteers, the Schaefer family, and has a canine sibling (a long-haired dachshund named Tres) and a human sister to keep him company, and will keep his name.


Drogon Adoption

The first of the Game of Thrones kittens found their their home today – Drogon! He was adopted today as a surprise birthday present for his new human sibling, Isabel. Rescued from the Balch Springs Shelter, Drogon and his litter mates have been fostered by new volunteer, Claudia Cook. Claudia and Isabel’s mom, Shannon, had been working together to keep Drogon’s adoption a secret from Isabel as long as possible, so up until this morning, Isabel thought they were only fostering the kitten. Now named Goose, he joins a busy household with 4 kids and 2 canine siblings.


Reese Espieces & Clementine Double Adoption

Reese Espieces and Clementine were adopted by their fosters, the Corker/Kraus family!  Clementine had been brought into the RHS system through a friend of Jenny Kraus, and Jenny and family fostered her.  Reese was rescued from the Red Oak Shelter and was initially fostered by Mary Cook and her family.  As Reese grew (and grew!), he became too large and active for the Cook family to comfortably handle, so Jenny offered to foster Reese as well .  The two dogs fell in love; Chase refers to them as Peas & Carrots since they go together so well.  And of course you can’t split up a duo like that, so Jenny, Chase and Olivia adopted both.  Now known as Biggs and Clemmie, they share their home with two canine sisters, Ladybug and Nutmeg.

Ozzy Naish

Ozzy Naish crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 22, 2019 at the age 16 after a brief illness.  From his mom, Mary:

Ozzy you had some of the cutest little antics that made us laugh.  We will remember you always–  and you partner up with my whole gang at the Rainbow Bridge and we will all be together one day soon.  Love you Ozzy.

Mama Coco Adoption

Sweet Mama Coco was adopted and her new name is Layla. When her new dad met her on Monday there was an instant connection. She will be the only fur baby and will get all the love and attention.

Mama Coco and her son Señor Fluffypants were strays found by a friend of Dana Huffman and joined the RHS family.

Thank you, Victoria Neidell for fostering Mama Coco until she found her furever home!
Another great job, congratulations! 🎉


Farley Adoption

While a storm was a brewin’ outside of Pet Supplies Plus today, inside, safe and sound, Farley was being adopted by his forever family, Cerene and her 13 year old son Simeon.  Seems Simeon has wanted a dog for a while, but he had to show some responsibility first by doing his chores and keeping his room clean, which he did.

Sweet, handsome, smoky-eyed Farley came to us through our foster coordinator Laurie Baker.  Farley was dumped at the home of one of Laurie’s work friends earlier this year.  They had another dog, but that dog was not keen on Farley, so they asked if RHS could foster him.  Fortunately for Farley, Kris Keesy and family had a spot available for Farley, and it was there that he spent several months in the lap of love and luxury, waiting for his forever home.

Please wish Farley, Cerene and Simeon a happy life together (and let’s hope Simeon continues to keep his room clean), and thank Kris and family for another fabulous fostering job.

Sammy Loo Adoption

Sammy Loo has also found his fur-ever home!  Our handsome, fluffy, bob-tailed senior boy will have another senior feline sibling named Brenan to keep him company and a mom to love on both of them.  He was camera-shy at the home visit/adoption so we didn’t get any pictures of him with his new family.  An owner surrender, Sammy Loo was fostered by Jennifer Auman.


Chunk & Bill Double Adoption

Bill and Chunk were both adopted by their fosters, Stephanie Hickey and family.

From Stephanie: Bill and Chunk are doing great as always. Clearly they didn’t have to adjust since they have lived with us for years now. Bill loves his older brother who looks just like him and only has 17 years on him. He still tends to harass the other cats in the house but not as badly as before. He loves having a “cookie” with the dogs and will steal his own if you don’t get it for him. He pretty much runs the house.

Chunk enjoys his one on one time with me. He loves running his circles in the back yard. His favorite treats are blueberries, zucchini and squash.

Jewel Annalise Adoption

Sweetheart Jewel Annalise found her fur-ever home today!!  Now named Georgia, she will be the only girl in her new dad’s life.  He works close to home so he can visit Georgia at lunch, and maybe when she finishes growing up she’ll be able to go work with her dad.

Her foster mom, Andie, wasn’t able to be at the adoption due to a prior commitment, but she sent along what has become her signature goodbye gift – a baby book with pictures from the day she got Jewel to their last night together.  We all teared up a little at how beautiful it was!

A stray found by a friend of Dana, Jewel Annalise was fostered by Andie Butler.  Thanks for another great job, Andie!!
