Happy Ending: Rui (F/K/A Beverly)

We can’t tell if Rui is a cat or a dog! She meows loudly, loves licking our faces, and runs around like crazy. She also follows around and idolizes our two other cats. She’s definitely a weirdo and we always find her in the most bizarre positions! She is also very clumsy and we sometimes […]

Organizational Update

2020 was certainly a year we won’t forget anytime soon. However, rather than social distancing, masks, and COVID, we will remember it as the year that our community came out in force to support our mission in various ways.

Happy Ending: Mia (F/K/A Sugar)

Mia was a little shy when she first got here, but after a day or two, she looked much better around the place. Every morning at around 4 am, she wakes me up looking for pets and cuddles and she is lucky I am an early riser so it doesn’t bother me much. She naps […]

Happy Ending: Gertie (F/K/A Nellie)

Gertie is doing great!  She is such a sweetheart!  We have found that she loves her cheeks rubbed and will flop over anytime she’s ready for a belly rub.  She immediately formed a bond with my daughter, Olivia.  They are constantly playing together, and Gertie will follow her throughout the house.  The two of them […]

Happy Ending: Aspen (F/K/A William)

Aspen loves his new home! His new parents say he is sweet, gentle, and loves to play. He likes to tease and provoke the dogs, and they usually end up chasing him. “Tampons (still in the wrapper) is apparently a fun toy. Who knew?? That a teenage bedroom for you I guess.” Aspen is very […]

Happy Ending: Mila (F/K/A Holiday)

Mila is the perfect addition to my one-person family here in Madison! She walked into my apartment on the first day like she owned the place and eagerly explored her new home. Her two favorite activities are playing with toys that make noise (she’s a natural hunter!) and sleeping on laps. She also loves giving […]
