22 and Counting in 2005

2005 has been a busy year for DRTB. Once our volunteers get into gear and the result? Sam! Again Dal #22 is rescued and adopted!

Sam_No_22Thanks again to the teamwork of our wonderful volunteers, who we can always count on, we were able to save Sam.

Sam is a beautiful 3-year-old purebred Dal whose owner no longer wanted the responsibility of caring for her. She was taken to a high-kill shelter and had no hope of getting out. Sam, who is very friendly with a non-stop wagging tail, was already spayed and is heartworm negative... a perfectly adoptable dog, but due to be euthanized because there was "no room at the inn".

Many hugs to Chris who picked her up and transported her to our vet for safe keeping while we were out of town. Also to Merna who graciously agreed to pay for her boarding costs; we had no other options because no foster homes were available since Sam has a bad case of kennel cough.

Sam is on her way to recovering from her cough and regaining her spirit after being abandoned. She is now in the loving care of foster Mom Sherry, along with little Dottie - our other adoptable "pint-sized" Dal.

Soon we hope that Sam and Dottie will join the other twenty Dals who have already found their way to a new life since the start of 2005 through DRTB. Thanks to the continued generosity of our contributors for helping make these happy endings possible!
