Happy Beginnings: Sam and Bertie

Posted by Jennifer on December 20th, 2013

Here’s a happy adoption story just in time for the holidays… times two! These adorable puppies were given this chance at their happy beginning to the rest of their lives thanks to the humane society who, seeing past their wild ways and recognizing their potential took them in and began their socialization, and of course too the compassionate person that adopted them. We heard about this doubly happy adoption story thank to the Adopt-a-Pet.com Happy Beginnings Fund grant program for shelters and rescues. The grants provide funding to shelters and rescues for their adoption programs, to make more Happy Beginnings like these two possible. If Adopt-a-Pet.com helped you find a pet to adopt, and you have a happy adoption story and photo that you’d like to share to help inspire others to adopt a pet, we’d love to hear from you! Please send an email with a photo or two of you and your adopted pet (or just your pet, but we love seeing your smiling faces too) attached to us here at  info@adoptapet.com, and let us know how Adopt-a-Pet.com helped you find your pet! Now on to the wonderful story of Sam & Bertie, and the photo with their new person below…

Their humane society writes, “One of our favorite Happy Beginnings is about Sam & Bertie the two Miniature Dachshunds that were surrendered to our shelter as “mean and wild”. To the contrary, these two little minis’ were so frightened and scared that they were hunkered down in the pet carrier not wanting to come out. With lots of love and patience we won over these two cuties. They went to an outdoor festival in Lexington, KY where they were the two featured dogs for “Smooch the Pooch” and helped to raise $1,316.00 for our shelter. Not only did they raise monies to SOS – Save Our Shelter – they were ADOPTED! Belinda adopted the two of them together as bonded pair. She changed their names to Priscilla and Elvis! ROCK ON! – Mark and all the Critters here waiting at No Kill Central KY Regional Humane Society
