It's the best weather around this time, or is it? I've just seen there's a typhoon floating around OH no not again! Well with that I'd best move on as fast as I can, so what about this month who got lucky, who hit the jackpot and who needs our help. Read on ...
Clyde - adopted by his lovely foster parents who couldn't let him go, if you saw how he is with them you'll understand why. He's in love, adoring eyes watching their every move, it's as if he can't believe his luck!
Cludo - we weren't sure what to expect but yipppeeeeeeeeeee he passed his blood test and is off to New Zealand. Everyone is happy with that result I can tell you.
Cognac - the 1st of the 4 greyhounds arrived and is loving everything and one. It has been a long, hard road for the lucky greyhounds who found good homes. I know the 4 we were able to help land the best homes, we can only hope the others still in Macau are as fortunate.
Kara- we were all feeling sad and happy at the same time as she boarded the plane to San Francisco. She had more fosters than any dog should have but finally, one of those fosters became her permanent family and came back to get her. To all of you who did so much to get her there THANK YOU! Small words for such an enormously well-planned trip. She appears to have settled in almost ridiculously easy and we can only attribute this to her love for her people who she loves.
Rich - greyhound number 4 and the last to arrive here but like the others, he's in seventh heaven. His family wouldn't give up on rescuing a dog from Macau and kudos to you, you got an amazing dog and saved a life too!
Sisi - she'd never even met the dog or persons she was going to live within Dublin. I trusted the family member I know who has rescue dogs herself and after one conversation I knew it was a perfect situation and home for Sisi. She arrived and her foster aunty flew from NY to be at the airport for her arrival, nothing quite like a familiar face! The next thing we knew Sisi was charging around the garden with her new dog friend. I can tell you it was worth the 5+ year wait to see this amazing sight. If I could give every dog such an opportunity life would surely look brighter. Way to go Sisi, it's true every dog does have her day!
Trendy - greyhound number 3 landed and joined her family and of course new dog friends. Another life saved and a happy ending with a wonderful life ahead of her.
Winston- greyhound number 2, happy as are his parents. Together they've started a new chapter in their lives with their new quadruped. A lot of work, determination and stress went into their adoptions with the ultimate result. Welcome to Hong Kong and the best part of your lives ...
Coco - our amazing girl will go on trial in a few days. she and her new family and quadruped are a good fit she'll be staying put. Watch this space ...
- New dogs -
Cherry - after a long month, she had to leave everyone she had ever known including her bff Martin. We tried so hard to keep them together alas we couldn't find a foster able to have them both. He continued to lick her face all the way to the foster home when they had to part company. It was almost as if they knew what was about to happen. Now in foster with a wonderful couple and coping with being in a flat and the lift, the people but the strange noises are unnerving and scary at times.
Darlene - she's in foster and learning how to live in a flat with people and all that goes with it. Hopefully, she'll be confident enough to go outside and walk on a lead that's when we know she's ready and will come and join our adoption events. She's a sleek, slender gentle looking Sharpei x and she will be looking for a forever home ...
Digby - he's a handsome 10-month-old Lab x and small for his age and mix. Very friendly loves kids and full of life with energy to burn, he'd be a great dog to run with as that's one of his hobbies. The others were eating, wagging his tail and playing. He's healthy, ready to go if the right family comes along.
Dinky - she's the cutest little girl who wants nothing more than to sit on your lap or next to you and get all the love and cuddles available. She's happy to go for her walks, she shuffles around taking time to smell the flowers. Such a dear little one who needs to be the love of someone's life and soon.
Maple - She's a large rambunctious youngster with a zest for life. She needs a person to match her and spend time enjoying the landscape and trails in Hong Kong. She's a delightful dog with a kiss for everyone who crosses her path. To know her is to love her ...
Martin - he's a gentle soul, a real sweetheart as easy as can be. He loves company, kids and it seems cats are no problem either. Sadly his biggest love is his bff Cherry and if it were possible to reunite them it would be the best result ever.
Rocky- next months poster boy and oh what a handsome guy he is! He's doing so well living in the city after living in a quieter area until recently. He's mellow with a gentle demeanor who asks little but gives lots.
We have more of course but he's a sneak preview of who needs your help. Come and see us next month on the 11th and 25th at the Peak Cafe or meet the dogs in their foster homes whenever.
Have a great month and thank you for your support, help, and care - see you in November. It will be hard to beat this month's amazing successes but let's give it a go.
