We love to hear from our adopting families. Here are some stories about new companionship between people and pets, along with some fun photos of new life for our alumni dogs and cats. Email us your family’s Happy Tail today to info@TulsaSPCA.org.
Petunia is doing great! She and I go together like peas and carrots. Tim Geen called her “Tooney” when I was at the shelter picking her up, and I decided on that name for her. Tim rescued her and I could tell that he holds a special place in his heart for her. Tooney and I are still bonding. I started working on some simple commands this week. She knows “sit” and “down” pretty well. My long term plan for us is to train Tooney as a therapy dog and visit amputees in hospitals or physical therapy and rehab institutions. Of course, we have a long way to go before that actually happens, but I believe her to be a willing participant. Tooney’s a lover! She’s smart and easily trainable. She has won a special place in my heart and she didn’t even know it. I promise I will bring her for a visit soon.
ROCCO (FORMERLY CHEWY)
“Today is this puppy’s 6 month birthday! We were definitely not looking for a new dog when we came across this guy since the two we already had are a lot of work. Something about hearing that Rocco and his brothers and sister were going to be drowned by their owner right before they were rescued changed our perspective, and bringing him home was the only option. He is such a happy puppy, and has already brought us so much happiness. We are so enjoying our job of spoiling him every day of his life! I asked him to smile but he thought winking was the better choice.”
“Jasmine has settled in very well. I think she loves it here! She likes to go out with the other dogs and chase the squirrels, or at least lay under the tree and keep them up there! She sleeps a lot since she’s a little elderly, but that’s all she needs to do. She stays nearby us when we are home. She actually is protective too. She’ll go outside and run across the yard barking at whoever is going by! She does a little dance at treat time. She’s got the routine down now! She is definitely a sweet dog! Don’t know how or why anybody would give her up! We love her as if we had always had her…and will continue to for as long as God sees fit to share her with us! She’s our heart!”
