found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
"I was living in a condemned home in a rough area in Memphis. It was cold and I was hungry and scared, but most of all, I was lonely. I desperately wanted to belong. One day, a very kind man saw us, going into the house we lived in. He called a few rescue people who also came, they brought us food and water, and helped make some bedding where we could sleep and try and stay warm. They promised they would come back for us, and they did. They told us they were working to help save us and if could trust them, our lives would change.
At first we tried to stay hidden, and some of us did, but I thought, "Maybe this is my chance?" I was the first to trust the people. They were kind and I just knew that this might be our only chance. So is they worked to find a place for us to go, I kept the lookout, looking forward to their visits loving the affection and hanging on to the hope that maybe today would be the day my life changed.
There was a neighbor who didn't like us living in the house. He told the nice people that he was going to hurt us if we did not leave. So during one of our daily visits, one of the nice people said to me, "okay, let's go girl. ". I hopped into her car, and knew I would never see that house again.
The first few days were scary for me, even though I know in my heart that I was where I should be. Going from not being cared for, to living in a home with other dogs who I did not know, with people I did not know, was a little scary. But I quickly learned that my hope had turned into a reality, my life would never be the same.
I love being here now. Have a soft bed, a safe crate, A backyard, and even a couple other dogs to play with. I get to see the vet, and I'm fed good food that I don't have to search for. My foster mom tells me I'm safe, and I know I am, I can just feel it.
But this is not my forever home, my foster mom is a part of the rescue, and there and more dogs needing help, more dogs like me out there. And so I'm looking for a forever home. I'm looking to write the end of my story, are you my happily ever after?
My adoption fee is $400, and includes all of my vaccinations, space surgery, microchip, health certificate and transportation from Memphis to you. Please email email@example.com for an adoption application.
Thanks for reading my story.
-a very grateful Letty
Being able to safely and responsibly place dogs in foster homes takes time. Are the dogs healthy? Are they friendly with other dogs? What about children? Could they go to a home with kids? They worked to find the best places for the dogs to go. As they worked, they continued to spend time in the house so they could feed and assess the dogs. Then a couple of days after initially meeting the dogs, a neighbor approached them and threaten to hurt the dogs if they did not leave. The planning became urgent and that is when we were contacted.
Our concern was that Letty would likely be the first hurt as she was very approachable, in fact Letty was downright affectionate. She led the people into the house - almost as to say, "Here, this is where I live and I need help." She loved the attention, and in spite of her horrible situation, we knew that this dog so desperately wanted a home, a family, somewhere safe to belong. So we took her into the rescue and placed her in a foster home.
Letty lives with two other dogs and another foster puppy and is doing great. She is fully enjoying living in a safe and loving home and we are so proud to have her in our care. Letty's life defines why we do rescue. She is a dog who, through no fault of her own, found herself in a desperate situation and was so ready to be saved.
