We Were Adopted! March 5th – 11th.

Stewie and 27 of his friends found happiness this week!

A little over a month ago, the Bedford County Animal Shelter was in “code red” and reached out to us for help. That’s how we met sweet Stewie! When we heard about Stewie, we knew we needed to help save this boy. Stewie had been in the shelter for over a year and was the longest resident in the Bedford shelter.

It didn’t take long for our staff to immediately fall in love with him. Over the last month of getting to know Stewie, we found out how sweet and playful he could be. How he loves a good game or two of tug-of-war, or that he can’t resist a good cuddle session.

To our delight, Stewie was adopted over the weekend! He now will get to spend time with his new family playing all the doggy games and getting to get those cuddles in on a cozy couch in a new home. We want to thank everyone who adopted this past week giving so many deserving pets new homes. We also want to thank Select Bank for making it possible for people and pets to Find Happiness!

Ducky and 41 of his friends found happiness this week!

Ducky came into our care a little over a year ago and in the time that he’s been here with us we have learned so many fun things! We learned how much he loves his doggy friends as much as the human ones. Ducky loves frozen apples with peanut butter. He knows commands like sit, come, and drop it. His favorite toys are anything that squeaks or squawks, and he enjoys car rides and walks around the neighborhood. He got to go on a Petcation recently where he was described as “such a delight and full of love and happiness.” Ducky is really a perfect gentleman!

On Saturday, a family came in looking for a new member to add to their pack, and it didn’t take long for them to fall in love with Ducky. Ducky now has two human siblings, as well as the four-legged ones! We are so happy for Ducky and his new family.

Luca and 29 of his friends found happiness this week!

Luca came to us in December lethargic, and skin and bones. He appeared to have been living on his own for a long time. Hungry…starving, eating whatever he could find.

Our wonderful veterinarian knew right away when she first laid eyes on him that he had a foreign object in his intestines. She and our Medical Team prepped him for surgery. It was much worse than we thought, and they had to remove a large section of his intestines. In the short time that he’s been with us, Luca thrived! His surgery site has healed, he has started to gain weight back, and he has made so many friends here at LHS. Our staff has learned that he is a super goofy boy who loves to spend time outside!

Luca went into a foster home mid-January, and it didn’t take long for his foster parents to fall in love with him. So much in fact that they decided to make it official and adopted Luca! Luca has come so far, and we are so happy for him and his new family!

Thank you to everyone who adopted this week giving so many pets homes. Thank you to Select Bank for making it possible for people and pets to Find Happiness!

Love at last! Long stays Charleigh, Grilled Cheese, Lucky, Mercy, Mufasa, and 53 of their friends found happiness this week!

Charleigh and her new mom!
Lucky and Mercy going home!

Last week we held an adoption special where 25 of our longest stay dogs had their adoption fees waived in hopes of finding a new family for Valentine’s Day. In total, 9 of our 25 longest stay dogs were either adopted or sent on trial over the course of 5 days. This is SO impressive considering some of these dogs haven’t had visitors in months, and many of these matches consisted of multiple meets and greets with various dogs. What a success! Our adoptions team was hard at work finding the perfect matches for each pet.

In a small recap: Charleigh’s new mom said it was love at first sight, Lucky and Mercy’s superstar foster mom officially added them to her family, Grilled Cheese couldn’t wait to go home and lounge around with his new family, and Mufasa was reunited with his previous owner! So many happy endings for some of the greatest pups.

Grilled Cheese and his mom couldn’t be happier!

Levi and 45 of his friends found happiness this week!

Levi originally came into our care back in 2021. Levi had a hard time finding his perfect humans for a whole year until finally the right ones came in and adopted him in the summer of 2022. Unfortunately, as we all know life happens and due to some unforeseen circumstances, his family had to surrender him back to us a year later. They were completely heartbroken that they had to leave this sweet boy here while they figured things out and had hopes that once they were back on their feet, they could adopt Levi back if he hadn’t found a new home in-between.

Thursday of last week was that day! They came in and adopted Levi back! Levi has struggled so much in every home that he went into but theirs and we are so happy that they were able to adopt their boy and take him home. We truly believe they are his forever family.
