Peaches is Purring

Peaches came home with us last week and has adapted beautifully. She is getting used to her sister Puss who is a 2015 alum of Stafford. Peaches and Puss are going to be quite the pair. Thank you for all you do at Stafford.

The perfect match

I’ve always wanted a guinea pig. My friend Brooke introduced me to you website. She showed me the guinea pig Turbo. His eyes caught my attention. A couple days later we were on our way to Livingston. When I got there I almost started crying happy tears. I met turbo and held him. I knew that it was a perfect match. We took him home and by the time we got home, he already let me feed him and pet him. I could never ask for a better little piggy. Thank you so much Stafford. I send all my love to you and your animals. God bless you!

Grace comes to our house.

I adopted Grace on February 7, 2017. She arrived to meet Sam (Great Pyrenees), Luna (Maremma) and Purrsi (domestic shorthair) and is thriving. She is the sweetest girl and had been too long at the center without a loving forever home. She has found it. she has adapted in just one day and is purring and exploring her new digs. We are all so impressed with this little lady.

Hi there!
I came into Stafford Animal Shelter last January to find a dog to help me with a disability. After looking at a couple of dogs, Gracie walked through the door and has been perfect ever since. She is the sweetest, best-behaved dog I have ever met, and she’s even gone to class with me and met my horse. Thank you so much for bringing us together, she has helped me get through illnesses and injuries, and I would not be doing as well without her. I’ve attached some photos of her in her new life 🙂
Also, she was brought into the shelter with her mom/daughter, Allie (not sure which she as but they were a pair), a brown and white Aussie/Border collie, and was adopted out before I came to the shelter. If her new family doesn’t work out in the future or she gets back to you for any reason, please let me know because I would love to adopt her too!
Thank you again, this dog is the best.

Sweet Roger Rabbit

After losing my last rabbit, I wasn’t sure if I would want another one because of how attached I get and the life span of rabbits. Today I picked up Roger, funny ears and all. Right away he nestled into my neck and began making happy rabbit noises. Now he’s home and already part of our family. He’s settling into his indoor, two story, freshly carpeted hutch and already looks very content. Thank you so very much. This little guy is so sweet.

Santana and Puckerman

I adopted Santana (formerly Fern) in August last year. Then I adopted Puckerman (formerly Hop Sing). They get along so well each other, as well as with my barn kitten Kitty Purry! All three of my kittens are just the best of friends! So well behaved and a pleasure to have around!
Thank you Stafford Animal Shelter for all the great things you do!

Dante k/n/a Thunder

We adopted Thunder last Saturday. He is wonderful! I don’t believe he had a backyard before. He’s very happy and so are we. He’s very well behaved and has bonded with both of us already. We couldn’t be more happy.

Happy Ending for Flynn

The rest is “his”tory. We adopted “Scooter” half heeler, border collie mix. We renamed him Flynn and he is having a ball. He is such a good dog and has made a remarkable leap in happiness and confidence.

We recently lost our heeler of 14 years and weren’t quite ready for another dog. But you all know that story…

What a joy. Thank you Stafford Staff for all you do.

Here are some photos of Flynn on his daily walk.
