Hello Pam,We love our kitties! After watching their personalities develop, we renamed them Kyoto (Tess) and Ruby (Sparkle.) Kyoto howls like a cute little coyote instead of meowing, and Ruby has a preference for red toys. After their trip to the vet for a basic check up, they have eagerly taken on their new permanent home with us! They love to cuddle with us on the couch (like in the attached picture,) and play fetch with their assortment of toys. They are excited when we walk through the door from work, and we are happy to come home to the warm welcome.

Thank you for your email. Eric Hamilton “Casino,” or just “Eric,” is doing great (Eric’s a Monty Python in-joke between Em and I, BTW). He has settled in to his new routine and is very happy – purring all the time.He’s eating very well. We have found him food that he likes, both dry and wet – no grains, and we are being careful what we feed him so that he can stay a healthy weight (currently 9lbs).We took him to Vienna Animal Hospital for his first check-up about a week after we brought him home and were told by our new Vet that he’s is doing fine (while we were there we had his nails trimmed and got him an ID chip and have since registered it online). We are settled in to our new roles too; feeding him twice a day, clearing his litter boxes and clipping his nails (he actually likes getting his nails clipped and purrs while it’s done). As per the advice we received during the adoption we have two litter boxes that we keep very tidy and two scratching set-ups that so far have prevented any accidents and have satisfied Eric well enough to keep him away from the carpets and furniture.All three of us have become very close to Eric. He loves to spend time with us (especially homework, piano and meal time) and enjoys being picked-up, petted and played with.Thank you so very much for rescuing him, and so many others – please keep up the good work !All the bestP.S. have you found homes yet for his Sisters, Carly and Cashmere ?

Hi All at Lost Dog!
(we ran into milo and his mom at the vet in January!! )
My partner’s kids gave us the DNA test kit for Christmas so we were able to find out that Harry and Milo’s dad was probably a Golden Retriever.
Harry is a VERY smart pup and goes to puppy classes every Saturday. He loves all his puppy pals in class and impresses all the other puppy moms and dads with how well behaved and responsive to learning he is! He is a very sweet dog and loves EVERYone!! His best pal at home is our 11 month old cat, Mook! They romp and play and zoom around the house and yard together. It does freak me out a little when Harry puts Mooks whole head in his mouth but he is quick to reassure me (when I give him the “easy harry” command) that he would not hurt Mook. He even allows Mook to “take him down” in submission roll when they are playing!! His favorite things: snow, carrots, playtime in puppy class, and playing “tugga tugga” with any number of stuffed bears!
I am a first time dog owner and I feel sooooo lucky to have come into the PetSmart that day and found Harry. He is a constant source of joy in our lives and as cute a pup as he was when we met him, he’s growing into a beautiful and loving dog! (45 lbs now and still growing!) Thank you all so much for rescuing him and his mom and littermates, and for all the wonderful rescue work you do!!

Chloe is doing great! I am so happy I was able to give her a home. When I adopted her I was so touched by all the Lost Dog and Cat Foundation volunteers and have participated as a volunteer since then. I have had no problems with her and I took her to the vet for a wellness check and everything was good! I’m so happy to have a new companion for the years to come!Below are some pictures of Chloe. Thanks for checking in on her!

My husband has coined a new phrase – Lukatic. Because Luke is the most adorable lunatic of a dog ever. Bananas? Eat them fast or be prepared to share. You’re putting the peel in the garbage and not looking, be prepared to chase the dog streaking away. The 4 and 6 year old boys coming to visit, sit back and watch the belly rubs taking place. Looking for a kiss and a snuggle, look no further. Road trip? Just wake him up when you get there.
Like most dog stories, the Luke era starts with the calm, sweet, beloved Basset before him. We had lost our dog Sparkle two years prior and just before we downsized. It was a long time before we even talked seriously of another dog. We saw Luke on a Sunday in January but walked away. We came back the next week and decided to take him home, even tho this was a much more energetic dog than we had seen the week before. A really smart, loving, handsome but untrained dog. But you could see what a great dog was there waiting for someone to help him figure it out. Over the next few weeks, we couldn’t figure out why such a sweet boy who was clearly a good boy had gone un-adopted for so long. We’ve decided he was waiting until we were ready.
After a lot of consistent work, he is becoming exactly the dog we figured was in there. He, mostly, waits for us to walk through the door before he follows. Luke heels on the leash and stops and sits before crossing the street. He comes when called (even without hope for a treat–well that’s not true, Luke always assumes food is involved). He sits and waits for permission to go to his food dish. And he is starting to walk past other dogs without lunging or barking. In fact, the barking at other dogs had changed tone from I’m scared so I’m going to really bark to hey, let’s play? For those of you who have met Luke over the year he was with Lost Dog, you would be delighted with the progress he has made. This is one happy dog.
He still dive bombs whoever is in the bed every time he thinks he can get away with it and we have yet to find ANY food substance he will not eat, but this dog is just sweet and hysterically funny. He is truly a Lukatic.
Thanks for hanging in with him.

I wanted to let you all know that Mikey (previously Bear), who my fiancee Rachael and I adopted on February 8th is doing awesome! He is happy and healthy in his new home and is the talk of the building and the neighborhood with his dashing good looks. I can’t walk more than a few feet without getting stopped by someone driving or walking by. We couldn’t be happier or more fulfilled than we are with Mikey! He is one happy pup and has absolutely LOVED the snow.
Just thought we’d let you know how grateful we are!

I’m writing to you about Merlin the Beagle. We adopted Merlin almost a year ago in March of 2013 at an adoption fair. Most dogs at the fair were high energy and receiving lots of attention from the people. Merlin was relatively new and seemed very scared. He was not with most of the dogs. We took him for a short walk and decided to take a chance on him. Best decision ever. Merlin has been a blessing for us. The friendliest dog to any human and especially compassionate to us. He once woke up a member of our family when another member of the family was experiencing a diabetic emergency. If it wasn’t for him, who knows how long the emergency would have gone unnoticed. Merlin loves to be outside and explore. On the opposite, he also loves to be snuggled up on the couch with his family. We couldn’t be happier with Merlin.

Hi- WE LOVE HER. We named her KAALI (which means Goodess of destruction of evil also means Black in India) She has basically taken over our house. Kaali has lost most of her shyness..though she still jumps and hides when she hears loud noise. She has fallen in love with my husband and follows him around every where. She sleeps on our bed…loves playing with feet , hands and moving toys.Really not fussy about food but now that she is growing she is showing signs of fussyness.We took her to the vet saturday. The vet said the shelter has done a wonderful job. Nothing wrong with her.Thank you so much for what you do.I will attach photographs …it’s tough to get good photos with all black cat as the flash makes her eyes glow.We love coming home to her.
