Just wanted to update on adoptions and the shelter proposal......

I approved the adoption for my female pitbull today, Daisy. She'll be leaving for Madison, AL. I just adopted the sheltie/corgi mix down that way as well.

In all honesty, I'd secretly been hoping no one adopted Daisy. She's just the sweetest little puppy!! She's all wiggle and very happy and loves everyone and everything she meets. You'd never know she'd been abused. She'll have a new chihuahua sister there, so she'll at least feel pretty much at home, after living with 6 of them here!

I also approved an application for one of the birds, who will go to her new home today. And I put the tortoises up for adoption. Hubby's looking at another potential surgery and we just won't be able to care for them properly at this point if he can't handle them. Multiple back and neck surgeries don't work with 100+ pound tortoises.

So, we're down to just a few fosters now. I'm working on the proposal for the animal shelter for my county, hoping really hard that it gets approved. Everyone keep your fingers crossed for the shelter. We need one here so badly.

Good news for everyone except your DH. So sorry to hear that he might need more surgery.

Remember, as hard as it is to let go of one of your fosters, you are making room to save yet another. You have also brought joy to so many people with each dog you adopt. Your efforts are comendable and I applaud you and wish you the best of luck with your shelter efforts.
