Vicky & Lil’ Bitt

 

 

 

Leon , a tri-colored 7 yr old male, came to Toy Fox Terrier Rescue by way of Florida.  Leon was one of five dogs that were transported to Denver, Colorado from a hoarding situation in Florida. Leon was a shy boy who took a while to warm up but once he did, he loved to cuddle all the time.  Leon’s photos eventually captured the heart of Vicky, who was searching for her furever pup online.  After the application and approval process was completed, she drove up from Texas to a Colorado adoption event, The Rescue Rally of the Rockies, to meet and pick up Leon.  Vicky immediately took Leon (now named Little Bitt) for a celebratory walk and to spoil him by buying him goodies from the Rally vendors.  Lil’ Bitt and Vicky stayed a few days in Colorado and then had a wonderful road trip back home to Texas.  Congratulations to Vicky and Lil’ Bitt!

Dean-Quint-Adoption 6-7-14

Quint with his new momma Kari!

Dean, a tri-colored, 5 month old TFT/rat mix was saved from the Fort Worth Humane Shelter (TX). He was pulled by TFTR on the day he was supposed to be euthanized due to a simple kennel cough. We were lucky to have a group of volunteers including a puller, 2 different transporters, and a foster, who were able to get him to a vet as soon as he got out of the shelter for an examination and some meds and then on to his new foster home, Cheryl & Dean (yes the husband had the same name).  Dean was so scared, as he had gone through a lot in his short lifetime, but he grew to love his new found freedom! He started to come out of his shell by learning and loving to play with his foster siblings and of course loving cuddle time. His new mommy and daddy, Kari & Curtis, automatically fell in love with all of his photos online and immediately sent in her adoption application, completed the approval process and was excited to pick up her new furever dog! Dean was renamed Quint or Quin for short and has been spoiled silly with toys galore! Thank you to all of the amazing volunteers, contributors, and most of all Kari & Curtis for saving Dean’s life!

Kiersten, the TFTR volunteer coordinator here! We’d like to continue growing our volunteer network from coast to coast, so in June we’re going to focus on high-kill states like California, Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania (but if you live in another state, let us know you’d like to volunteer, because we need volunteers in every state!).

Please post a reply here with your state, as well as send us a private message on Facebook so that we can share our volunteer app with you! You can also check out our new TFTR website at http://www.tftrescue.com/ and download the forms there, too!

Volunteer opportunities include fostering, transporting, fundraising, grant writing, helping with administrative tasks, and more!

We had so much fun getting to know our May volunteers, we’re looking forward to talking with our soon-to-be newest volunteers in June!
