ADOPTION FAIR


Last week our shelter held an adoption Fair at the Vista City Library. It was only a small one, with two cats, one rabbit and 6 dogs.  I got to look after one of the cats.  I was so pleased because the cat I had was Elle, only I call her Mollie.  Sometimes the cats are in the shelter for a week or two before they are given a name and I'm not an official animal namer. Mollie, (or Elle, whichever you prefer), is one of my favorites.  She is a three year old tortie and is very sweet natured.   Every time I go to the shelter, I always  visit Mollie.  She loves to come out of the cage and sit on my knee. So we have spent quite a bit of time together.





She had quite a large cage and didn't seem to be at all disturbed by the process of travelling and being looked at. 'Though she certainly did perk up her ears when the dogs barked.  They were outside.  In fact it was such a warm day that they had to be kept in the shade.

                                                                       
This was a very sweet black lab mix(?).  Sadly none of our animals were adopted at the fair, but at the shelter  itself  as many as 25 animals were adopted.  So that was a really good day.

Mollie suits her - she is very pretty.

The dog seems very happy about the whole thing. I have not seen a cat this color before and would think he or she would be the talk of the town.

I so wish I could have a dog but with both of us working, it just isn't fair to have one. Our three cats don't seem to give a hoot if we're home or not.

You just have great cat pictures here. And a sweet dog too.

Wish I could adopt all of them.

What a lovely idea - I'm glad it generated so much interest. x

I always find it so sad to see the faces of these lovely animals who are crying out for someone to love them - they have such love to give back.
