At last! The first cat for the Year of 52 Rescues. Her name is Momma. She was found with her 4, 8 week old kittens near a train tressel. She is estimated to be one to two years old, and is available for adoption through 911 Pet Rescue in Poland, Indiana.
He was found laying in a county road in rural IN taking a nap with only 3 legs on Halloween of 2013. A couple driving down the road stopped to see if he was okay, which he was. No tags, so they took him home to try and find his owner. They did not have a fence, so he made his way to all their neighbor's houses and ended up back at their door step. Realizing he needed a fenced yard, they contacted us about taking him into rescue. He is super friendly, can run like the wind, and has no idea he only has 3 legs. He gets along well with everyone two and more legged, and thinks he is a lap dog. He likes nothing better than snuggling up next to you. He likes going for car rides, and running along side ATVs in the fields. He is quite a character. He is about 3 years old.
The second adoptable animal for my year of 52 Rescues is Preston. Preston is approximately 5 years old, and he is with the River City Bully Buddies in Huntington, West Virginia. Preston was picked up as a stray; he was actually running around in the road, and someone opened their car door and he jumped in. He had clearly been badly neglected, but he is a wonderful dog who walks well on a leash, loves children, cats, other dogs, and riding in the car.
Happy New Year everyone! I have completed my first painting for my Year of 52 Rescues! He is a dog named Harry, from a shelter called Cause for Paws in Etna, Ohio. His age is unknown, and he was rescued by Cause for Paws from a kill shelter.
