We love to share our Happy Tales (Tails) and if you send in your pets current  photo we can post it here and let everyone know just how fabulous our critters are from the Fayetteville/Lincoln County Animal Shelter, where unconditional love is just an adoption away!

Here are some of our latest...

HSLC reporting in! Poco, now known as, Boone has found a great home.
 

Don't we all love a happy story? This time we have 3! Sky, our shelter voice for this week, has been adopted from Petsmart in Murfreesboro. Melody, our 16 yr old shelter voice from 2 weeks ago, has been adopted from Petsense in Tullahoma. Finally, Church, our 12 yr old diabetic kitty, was adopted by an incredible woman. Our greatest wish is for all of our animals to have these kinds of stories.

Another Happy Ending! Abbott, now known as Dakota, was with us for a very long time and we were getting worried! Along came 2 wonderful people and changed Dakota's life forever. He is happy and adjusting very well to his new abode.



Tinkerbell was adopted on the 10th of November and her new family says that she is adjusting wonderfully to her new home!







Lila was adopted on 9/7/13 and is know known as
"MINNIE"
We love her? She is perfect and very spoiled!








We got Bowie (originally Maddie) on October 1, 2012. She has been the best dog ever and we are so happy to have rescued her.





  





CHANCE (NOW PAX) GOT HIS SECOND CHANCE UPDATE




           


  




This is Cam (alias "Ranger") who was adopted in January 2012 with his 2 standard poodles. Carol

 

Tucker was found in our night drop pen along with his siblings, but Tucker was one of the lucky ones, he found a fantastic home and Melissa says "he fits right in!"


 



Updates on Margarita!


Hi Kim, I hope that you are doing well. I just wanted to send you a quick update on Margarita now that I've had her for a little over a month!


First, I did change Margarita's name to Nymeria (the name comes from the HBO series/Book "Game Of Thrones"). Nymeria has been doing incredibly well! We had her first vet visit a couple of weeks ago, and everything looked great, one healthy pup! She has learned her name very quickly and has been unbelievably well behaved. Still working on house training, but she is doing great aside from the occasional accident (to be expected). She loves making friends with other dogs, enjoys running around free-range, and likes going to the beach for a swim. So far she's learned "sit," "come," "crate," commands and continuing to work on a few others.


I have included a few photos of Nymeria for you! I'll let you know once she's had her spay procedure (scheduled for next month).


Take care,
John and Nymeria Cogswell


 

HARMONY ADOPTED 5-12-12 

 

To the Dear Ladies of the Fayetteville Animal Shelter,
I hope this picture will bring a smile to your faces.  This is Harmony with her big brother, Buster (also rescued).  They are watching for their Daddy - how cute!

Thanks for your good work.  We love our puppy!

                      MILLER                                        SCOOBY DOO

Thanks to Cathy Anderson of Woody Anderson Ford, two grown dogs found great homes this month.
The first was Miller, a Golden Retriever that went to a fantastic family in Huntsville.  It seemed to be a match destined to happen....as his new last name is Miller.  When I called to check on Miller his new owner said he spent most of his time in the pool with the grandkids!  What a great story!
 
Lightning struck again today when Mrs. Anderson called and said she thought she had a home for another one of our dogs....Aspen (RENAMED SCOOBY DOO)....a Labrador/Great Pyrenees mix.  Sure enough, Melody took her to Huntsville where it was love at first sight!  She will spend her first night out of the shelter and head to her new home in Vermont in the next couple of days!
 
Not only does Cathy help us save the lives of pups with the generous use of a van for our Sailing Trips....she graciously lets us use her office as our Offsite Alabama Adoption Headquarters!  ;)
 
That's what we need........you are our eyes and ears.  You know when a friend just had to put his dog down.  You know when a neighbor just put up a brand new fence in the back yard.  You know when someone is a great pet owner and might have room for one more.  Please spread the word, folks.  We can't do this without you!
 
Take a look at these happy dogs!


ROCKY THE RACOON ON HIS WAY

Although this is not an adoption, we wanted you to know that we try our best for all the "criiters" that come into the shelter and we wanted to share Rocky's rescue with you. Liane Quick, one of our Shelter Friends took Rocky the Raccoon to meet his ride to Waldens Puddle!  Rocky was just opening his eyes as if to say Thank You to Liane for the ride and to Denise for taking care of him.
