“Shelter our pets is AMAZING. They helped me out in ONE day when I needed help with my two French bulldogs. They came an hour away to pick them up. They were so nice. My dogs went together to the same home. I received pictures of them every time I asked so quickly. The foster bought my dogs food toys a bed new leashes treats took them to the vet. Gidget is amazing she is so sweet and will be a listening ear to talk about your problems and really cares for you and the pets. It’s amazing how they put so much time and heart into fostering temporary when 99.9 of rescues don’t do that. I would recommend this rescue to ANYONE. Best. One. Ever.”

Infinite Gratitude…

Message_1448765582769“I want to express my infinite gratitude to your organization… My unfortunate situation was more than grueling and it was very endearing to know that my pets were being cared for by people as passionate for pets as I am.  My family as well as I are eternally grateful for all of your help and for those behind the scenes as well. Please keep up the excellent work and continue to help other women in my situation. When times get hard and you get discouraged, which sometimes happens, please remember that people do care about your work and it doesn’t go in vain.”

Thank Goodness…

logo“Thank goodness Shelter Our Pets steps in,” says Lill Corcoran, Associate Executive Director at the Center for Hope and Safety, “By fostering pets until an abused family can begin a new life, it gives abused family members time to heal and start a new home were they can be reunited with their pets in an abuse-free home.” Pet and owner reunions this year were a heartwarming reminder of the importance of services provided by Shelter Our Pets.

Thank You for Keeping My Pet Safe

A thankful message from one of Shelter Our Pet’s clients.

I was very stressed out and worried wondering were my cat would end up hoping she would be in a good home if I couldn’t keep her, because of my situation of being homeless.  Shelter Our Pets made it possible to keep my cat until I got back on my feet. Shelter Our Pets kept me updated every week with information about my cat which made me feel happy to know she was safe and that one day I would see her again.

Now that I have gotten back on my feet and reunited with my cat I couldn’t be happier. She’s my companion. She’s very healthy and playful.

Thank you for keeping my pet safe. Thank you for caring and thank you for existing.

God bless.

Shelter Our Pets Program a Life Saver

Earlier this year, Shelter Our Pets helped care for the pet of a domestic abuse victim. Thanks to wonderful foster families, this sweet and jovial fella got tons of love and care and was returned to his owner a few months later. We just got this thankful note from the owner, with permission to share it along with some photos.

“The shelter our pets program was a life saver for me and my dog. They helped us get through some rough times, though it was hard to part with him for a time being. When he was returned to me, I think our bond got even stronger. The associates that work and volunteer for the program they made it an fairly simple easy process. As well as keeping me up to date throughout the time I was in the program. If it wasn’t for them and their caring personality, I probably wouldn’t still have my dog now.  Thank you, Shelter Our Pets program!!!!”

Reunion day.  Waiting to go home.
