Amazing Maise

Yesterday was a bittersweet day for me. As a foster people often ask you how are you able to give up your foster dogs. The answer is simple. As much as I love them my goal is to help them and make sure they get the best possible life to fit their needs. I'd rather get attached then know they died because I didn't help.

Maise came to us with dog aggression, somewhat people aggressive, heartworm positive, in heat, and abused. It was clear to say I jumped head first into rescuing her before I realized how much help she needed. The first day I brought her home I could barely touch her, she would stiffen and growl at me. In the crate if I showed her my hand she would try to eat me. This was not a normal dog our rescue would take, or any rescue for that matter. I actually cried the day after I got her thinking this may be the one I couldn't help. But I wasn't giving up on her that easy.

I took baby steps with her. Luckily she was very food motivated. We started desensitizing her with the crate and at feeding time. Then we went to Reactive Rover every Saturday thanks to Christie Fernandez at Training Your Best Friend LLC for letting us join her class! Over the last two months she was with me we started to see a whole new dog. She started to bond with me, and trusted me.💜

I'll never forget that day in class when we took a break and I sat down only to find her crawling in my lap. I knew at that moment we had saved her. Once I gained her trust she let me do almost anything. This dog is truly amazing. She went from an abused past to trusting again.

When I met the Creech family I was very excited. Maise had to be an only dog who could have her own space and they sounded perfect. After losing their last husky to diabetes and cushings disease they fell in love with Maise's picture and wanted to know more. Once I got to know them things became more clear that Maise could be perfect for them. I told them all of her flaws and how far we had come. When Maise met them she wasn't that standoff growly girl I had known from day one, but instead she joyfully walked in their house and rolled over for belly rubs. They opted to do a home trial with her at that point.

After the trial was over we got the good news that they were ready to make her part of the family! My heart was so happy. While I love this dog just like one of my own I sleep better at night knowing she will live a happy life getting all the attention and care she deserves. I wanted to share Maise's story in hopes that people can see what a little love, patience, structure, and positive reinforcement training can do.

Maise is such a special girl, and we are excited to hear of the new adventures she will have in her forever home. 🌞

Adoption Events – March 18th 2017

Paws For Life Cat Team Adoption Events

The Paws For Life cat team will be at the Wake Forest and Knightdale Petcos . Come check out our cats!

Petco — Knightdale ()

Knightdale Petco Cats - March 18th
  • Punkin: This gorgeous 2 year old young man with the flaming red hair looks like a Persian kitty but is smaller in size. He likes to "head butt" you when you feed him and enjoys laying in your lap. His second favorite thing (besides eating) is to knead his bed with his big paws. He just looks so adorable when he does that. He is a shy guy so a quiet home would be best for him. His docile nature and good looks makes him the perfect cat for a single, couple or senior person. See his WRAL Pet Of The Day Debut
  • Cheeto: This slim "ginger boy" is affectionate and loves to be loved on by his people. He likes other kitties, so he would do great in a home with another kitty or even a cat savvy dog! He just doesn't like to be alone. He would do well with children because he is gentle and doesn't bite or scratch when picked up.
  • Hope: Hope and her sister Grace were born to a stray - but a nice lady brought the family inside and raised them with love. Hope is the sweetest girl. Very laid back but also playful. Loves to get attention and held like a baby for belly rubs and nose kisses. She has such a beautiful coat and a face that will melt your heart. She would love someone to give her lots of attention and love.
  • Grace: Grace, Hope's sister, was also born to a stray - but a nice lady took both them in and raised them with love. We took them into our program to help find loving homes for them. Grace is a loving girl that loves attention. She is also curious about what is around her. She will come to you talking. If she is looking for her you can hear her walking around the house talking to find you. She loves to play with her sister and run throughout the house. If you are looking for a baby with tons of energy Grace is your girl!

Petco — Wake Forest ()

Wake Forest Petco Cats - March 18th
  • Cyndel: Cyndel is absolutely one of the friendliest cats you will ever meet. She loves people, other cats, and even dogs. She never has a bad day.....she's always outgoing and loving. Since she has no fear of dogs, she needs to be around only cat friendly dogs. She's young (around 3 years old or quite possibly younger), very reliably litter box trained, and felv and fiv negative.
  • Tammy: Tammy is a two and one half year old female tabby. She was rescued from Animal Control along with her five kittens on August 1, 2016. Now it is time for Tammy to find her forever home. Fitting in with personal after some time, and would probably fit in with a mature dog. She loves to play with ribbons, springs, toys on a stick and just finds things like kitties will do. She loves to go onto the screened in porch to watch the birds and sounds of nature. She has been spayed, micro chipped and is current on all her vaccinations. She is ready to go to a new home.
  • Shyla: Shyla is a very sweet, quiet, and gentle girl who we rescued from a kill shelter. She is 1-2 years old. She is affectionate and likes to be petted although it might take her a moment to warm up to a stranger. She is playful and her favorite toy is a long piece of felt on a stick which she loves to chase. She does great with other cats. Shyla would do best in an adult home without small children. She is spayed, current on shots, dewormed, microchipped, and negative for Felv/fiv.
  • Anna: 2yo 6lb - "The sweetest cat ever," claims Anna's foster mom. Rescued from a rural kill shelter, Anna is extremely friendly, affectionate, and wants nothing more than to be with her people. She has a sweet, soft chirp that she will let out when she's about to jump on your lap where she will settle in to cuddle and nuzzle. Anna's black fur is so velvet-soft that petting her will comfort you. Anna is only six pounds fully grown so she will always be a petite girl who is out of the frisky kitten stage. At two years old, Anna has great litter box manners, uses a scratching post if she even chooses to scratch anything, and loves soft treats. She has an absolutely delightful personality and is one of the most loving kitties you will ever meet. She is good with other cats but sometimes gets picked on due to her small size. She is not afraid of dogs, and loves people. She would be great as an only pet or with other pets who are very accepting of newcomers

Sid The Senior

 Sid And Nancy
Sid And Nancy
Thank You Nancy

Nancy finally made it official and adopted Sid! She was so nice to step up and foster this sweet boy when we did not have a foster for him. Her daughter Emily is also a valued volunteer and I think she knew all along there was a plan :). Sid came to us as a return as a lady no longer wanted to care for him (both she and he were seniors). Sid had a big fatty tumor that we removed just to help him feel and look a bit better. We updated his shots and worked to find someone looking for a smaller senior. We love to take in seniors but the adopter pool is certainly smaller.

Emily mentioned "He'll be living his senior years in Wake Forest right near Joyner Park, his favorite place to take walks. I knew they would be a good fit! The bonding just took a little time. Thanks to everyone who had a part in Sid's happy tail!"

Thank you Nancy, Emily (for your forward thinking vision 🙂 ), and the fosters who helped him find his forever home!

Triple Dog Adoption Day!

TRIPLE Adoption Day!🐕🐕🐕

Leonardo

Leonardo who will be called Leo for short was adopted this afternoon to his new mom Abby! Abby saw his pic and immediately felt a connection. She wasn't looking for a dog but knew she had to add him to the family! She has waited a few weeks since applying to finally take this boy home today. He's already being spoiled and will have a dog sister to play with in his new home!

Shredder

Shredder was the next to be adopted by his dad Darren! His new name will be Bauer. His dad works for the Carolina Hurricanes and has had a busy life. He had been waiting to get a puppy for a few years as he wanted to be sure he could give the puppy everything it needs. It was clear how happy his new dad was today. He couldn't stop smiling and petting the little guy as we completed the adoption! Nothing but happy days ahead for those two!

Buttercup

Last but not least Buttercup found her forever home today too! Her mom Brianne works at one of our favorite vets Heritage Animal Hospital Wake Forest, NC! When she applied we knew she would be a great fit for one of our puppies. Brianne will soon be off to vet school and miss Buttercup now known as Derby will be joining her! Lots of adventures ahead.🐾🐾

10 Little Puppies

A few weeks back a litter of 10 Australian Shepherd lab mix puppies were being given away. That's when I had undercover volunteers step in to get the puppies out of harm's way. They were given up at 5wks old because owner wanted them gone. They were covered in fleas, and had a belly full of worms. When they came to me they would only eat canned food. We made sure they got the vetting, love and attention needed to grow strong. Now they will all be headed off to bright futures.

A Double Adoption Night

Rosemary

Rosemary was the first to be adopted out of the litter of 10! She will enjoy life with her new family in Greensboro. What a lucky girl to have 4 kids to keep her company and a puppy pikenese sister to grow up with! She will be one busy, but happy girl!

Poppy

Poppy went home just an hour later to join her new mom and dad in Wake Forest. Her new parents had recently lost their furbaby and really missed having one around. When we took Poppy over to her new home tonight they had already bought her lots of goodies to enjoy. We know they will enjoy raising another beautiful girl to have by their side!

Pumpkin’s Journey

 Pumpkin's New Family
Pumpkin's New Family
The Wait Is Finally Over

We are so thrilled to announce the adoption of our sweet girl PUMPKIN!! She has waited and waited for the right people to come along. Pumpkin was found walking around the Bunn area heartworm positive, skinny, sick and sad looking with nails for miles. That was back in 2015. She has had a couple foster homes during that time and even a stint in boarding Heritage Animal Hospital Wake Forest, NC when we were short on a foster for her. She was treated by Paws For Life for her heartworm and doing so well now.

The Mohlmann Family saw her photograph and heard her story. They wanted to do a trial within 3 days they knew this was the gal that would become their family member. She is adjusting so well to living with this family. She is obedient and smart and gives them all love and attention. Thank you to Colin, Melanie, Ethan and Kailey for adopting Pumpkin. It was obvious how much she loves you all already!! Furthermore, a big thank you to all the fosters along the way – Cindy, Noel, Juli, Cecile and Pete, (and anyone we else missed during) – during the 18 months she has been in our care!

Introducing for the first time with a new last name Pumpkin Mohlmann!!
