Another Happy Tail!

Carlie Finds Her Forever Home! Just when you think a dog will never find its family, one always comes along who has a little more room in their home and a lot more love to share.


Carlie (left) was one of our "long term" fostered dogs, and we were beginning to think she and her forever family would never meet. She is now living with her "little" brother, Miller, and loving every minute of it.


The Beckers, of O'Fallon, Missouri, called us in mid-December and asked to see Carlie, and when we brought her to them, it was love at first sight. We all knew she was finally home.


Carlie was a shelter dog in Piedmont, Missouri, living in 110 degree heat last summer, when Jan spotted her and squeezed everybody together a little closer in her SUV and brought her to her foster home. "She's in that heat, she's so beautiful, and I just couldn't leave her behind," she said. This is what rescues LIVE for! Thank you for taking Carlie home!

I can't believe how much joy one dog has brought our family. Now I'm not going to say that Ms. Carlie's transition was easy, but she has turned out to be a great addition to our family. Thank you, Sue and Dennis for taking Carlie into your home, and for finding the "stubborn German" a permanent home.

RESCUES CAN'T SAVE LIVES WITH PET LIMIT LAWS

Pet Limit Laws Limit Rescue Organizations and other Responsible Pet Owners, Not Irresponsible Pet Owners
An irresponsible pet owner will be irresponsible with one -- or 20 -- pets! Until a city can write an ordinance that forces people to CARE about their animals, a few irresponsible pet owners will continue to indirectly help in the killing of healthy, adoptable animals at kill shelters everywhere.
A rescue organization member is trained in how to handle more than 3 dogs, is responsible enough to say, "I can't handle any more dogs right now," pays to spay/neuter, vaccinate, and put pets on heartworm and flea prevention, and gives much needed additional time for the pet to find its forever home.

We have asked the City of Arnold to allow rescue organizations the opportunity to save more lives by going over the pet limit every now and then to save a life. Our many requests are falling on deaf ears.

If you believe the City of Arnold could -- and should -- tolerate rescue groups enough to make an exception to the dog limit every now and then to save a life, please contact Mary Holden at mholden@arnoldmo.org and Matt Unrein at munrein@arnoldmo.org, and contact your city council representatives and tell them there is such a thing as COOPERATION between government and citizens! We're doing it for the New JCAC Shelter Fund!
