Hi, my name is Finley Thomas Sleeper. I am a Bichon/Maltese/Jack Russell mix. I was known as Milo, while I was at Georgia SPCA, where the awesome staff nursed me back to health after a car accident. I was adopted by the Sleeper family on October 8, 2017. My dad and my mom (to be) visited me almost every day for 2 weeks before I was adopted.
This blog is truly full of "happy tails" -- stories about animals who were rescued by the Georgia SPCA and were adopted into their forever homes. To add your own, click here.
Fruitloop was at the shelter for years before she met her new Mom and was adopted. Patricia sent us this photo saying "Happy 6th Birthday to Fruitloop". "She loves to sleep in the sunshine"! We are so thankful that Patricia adopted her and gave her a loving home. Happy Birthday Fruity! We love you!
Lily-Jean is a sweet 2-year-old Yorkie mix who was surrendered for adoption.
Jessica, Lucy Lu's Mom said, "I Just wanted to thank you for connecting me with my puppy that was once Laura Croft now Lucy Lu last October! We came in with the mindset of looking for the perfect match..
Bear's mom said, "Hi, I wanted to pass along an update on Bear! We adopted him 3 months ago. He's a wonderful, happy part of the family now! The first 6 weeks were rough as he did not like to be home alone, but we were consistent with desensitization training and now he can be left alone and seems to have overcome the majority of his anxiety.
Doesn't this face make your heart melt? Two-year-old Cisco was an owner surrender. And thank heavens he came to us! He had spent much of his young life locked in a crate and mistreated by the home's young children, who would push his crate down the steps with Cisco in it. Is it any wonder this little guy didn't trust people?
We all love a happy pup-date and here is one on little Miss Winky from her new family :
"Oh my gosh Miss Winky is doing amazing. We are in love and she is in love. She loves to cuddle and play and is so friendly. We can't imagine what it was like before her. She's going on her first vacation next week with all our extended family to the mountains to camp. She'll have a blast and will get so much love."
Sabrina and 14 other cats came to us from a deplorable hoarding situation. She had never been socialized, and was terrified of everything. She hid in the bathroom for weeks, not letting anyone touch her, and hissing whenever anyone got close to her. Finally, to get her used to being around people, we moved Sabrina to a cage in the Director's Office, where people were in and out all day.
We love Happy Tales! You never know when Cupid will strike! Here's proof that when it's meant to be....Stephanie writes:
Cat-mom Carol writes: "My cat, Mooshe, was called April while at the GASPCA. She's an avid bird and squirrel watcher - whether out the window or online. Search cat videos on youtube and enjoy the show."
Carol, thank you for keeping Mooshe entertained and loved!
Here is Suzanne's beautiful story about her involvement in rescuing a mama cat and her babies, with love and help from many caring people. (Sometimes it DOES take a village!)
"About three years ago, I noticed a small, older house with two other storage houses on a piece of property outside of my subdivision on a very busy road.
Alysia writes: "We adopted Cheddar 3 weeks ago and we love her so much! She's definitely spoiled! Nap time." Talk about a Happy Tale! This lucky kitten was one of three - her brother was Muenster and her sister was Gouda (we referred to them as "the three cheeses!") Their mother came to us very pregnant at 9 AM one morning, and the cheeses were born at 2 PM the same day.
Just look at that sweet face! Jason shared this wonderful story: "Three years ago, today, Cash(aka 'Piglet') officially joined our family. He's all grown up, now, and such a blessing. He's a major influence, in our home, and shares his wisdom with June, our female Staffie that we found on the street, last summer. I can't stress enough, how grateful we are to GASPCA, for giving our boy a fighting chance.
Marcia writes, "When Igloo first came home with us, she was very apprehensive and nervous about her new home and the weirdos that inhabited it. After some time and lots of love, Igloo, now Lily, has grown to be a confident and loving member of our family. We love our morning coffee snuggle! "
