Double Dog Rescue Follow-Up : Brewster ! / Gus Gets a New Home!

Brewster is comfy in his new home!
A couple of weeks ago we participated in a dog rescue transport that took little Brewster from Georgia to his new parents, Leon and Judi in Pennsylvania. Here is a picture of Brewster all settled into his new home.  Leon and Judi reported that Brewster is settling in very nicely.  He is sleeping with his new parents and getting lots of love and affection. 
   To read the full story of all 14 legs of the journey to bring Brewster and two other dachshunds to new homes, check out our earlier blog at:

GUS GETS ADOPTED! - Remember Gus, the chocolate and tan dapple dachshund that accompanied me on an adoption event in Gambrills, Md. at Pet Valu on Feb. 1st? 
  Gus was being fostered by April and her family for a couple of months. 
  After the adoption event, I made a You Tube video of Gus and we updated his profile - then Gus
Gus meets his new family! 

Gus at the Feb. adoption event
started getting a lot of attention. In fact, April told me that there were 5 adoption applications in on Gus after the video and update went live. April was very cautious about sending Gus to the right home and interviewed each potential parent. As a foster parent, it's our job to make sure that our foster kids go to the right home, and April did a great job!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
