"We have Rescued 1000 Animals in Need"
Best Friends Pet Rescue have reached an important milestone – 1000 animals rescued. The first rescue was “Otto”. And lucky number 1000 is “Miss Daisy”.
To celebrate our goal is to reach $1,000 with a thousand dollar donations. Donations can be made direct into our account or on our Celebration Adoption Days Friday 20 and Saturday 21 February 2015 at Petstock Wagga. At 11am on the Saturday we will be cutting a cake, come join us in celebrating the 999 animals before Miss Daisy who were given a second chance.
A huge thanks to everyone who has given these animals the wonderful forever homes they deserve. And to the important volunteers who give their all because they love these animals.
As in any area of animal rescue, the work is never done. As one of the rescue volunteers I would like to acknowledge the work of the co-founders of the rescue, making a big difference – congratulations Janey and Stacey.
Another wonderful donation received this week. Our donation bin at Lake Albert Foodworks was overflowing with all of these goodies. Thank you from the animals in care.
Thank you to a wonderful lady who regularly makes donations. She is now asking her friends to help us out as well. Thank you from all the foster animals in our care.
This lovely girl was transported from Goulburn to Wagga yesterday where she is now in foster care with an amazing foster family.
Indigo is heavily pregnant, she is skinny, was flea ridden and injured from a suspected collision with a car. Lucky for her she was taken to a very caring vet in Goulburn who provided her with medical attention, lots of TLC and arranged for her to come in to BFPRs care.
It's onwards and upwards from here for Indigo, she is now safe in foster care, she has lots of good food available and she has her very own bed room to relax in - ok she has to share with a human but lucky the human loves cats and it looks like Indigo loves humans (win win for all).
Indigo and her babies (when she has them) will always know what it's like to be loved, have a safe place to sleep and never have an empty tummy.
How many babies do you think Indigo will have?
We will post photos of her babies when they arrive in the next couple of weeks.
Elliot would like to say a very BIG thankyou to Rescue Resource for his new Thundershirt.
Elliot is the classic example of why puppies need socialisation when they are young, he was scared of people, cars and new things. He had never walked on a lead until he came into our care at 9 months old.
He is shown here wearing his Thundershirt outside our vet clinic Lake Road Vets who are treating him with medication for his anxieties. Elliot has also had extensive training from his carer and other members of the rescue group to overcome his fears and obsessions.
