Pet Feature ~ Meet Bear and Bella

 

Pet Feature ~ Meet Bear and Bella



Today I received an email from Melissa, a local lady that read one of my blog posts. As most people who subscribe to my blogs know I blog a lot about localism in the Lake Norman and Charlotte areas, about living green, and about pets. I am a firm believer that pets have an innocent way of enhancing our life’s if given a chance.

Melissa had read my, ‘Operation Noah’s Ark’ post which was about the rescue of hundreds of animals in an animal hording case. In fact this post has created more emails and calls than any other that I have written thus far; emails and calls asking who to contact to adopt these animals.

For the past month I have wanted to have a pet of the week or month that needs to be adopted, in hopes of being a link in assisting pets get a second chance.


Today, I was given the sign that now is the time to do my part.



The reason Melissa emailed me today was to find out if ‘Operation Noah’s Ark’ could take on two more dogs that were left at her house. Although, the organization will be contacted, I really doubt that they will be able to take on two more, with the hundreds and hundreds that they have to keep until the case goes to trial ….

Melissa's reason for having to give up these precious pets is because her mother in New York has stage 4 cancer and she is going to have to leave North Carolina by or before Thanksgiving to help care for her. I don't know and I doubt Melissa knows how long she will have to be in New York, but if we could possibly find someone who would be able to foster these two until she gets back to North Carolina may work.

Trust me I know that most all shelters and humane societies are maxed out, but I just can’t help but think that maybe someone in cyberspace is possibility looking for a great pet and will see these pictures and fall in love with them and decide to adopt them.


So Melissa this one is for you ~ my very first Pet Feature goes to Bear and Bella!



Please Meet Bear and Bella



Bear     Bella



They are sisters, who are beagle mixed, approximately one year old. Since they are sisters and they have been raised together since birth, it is Melissa’s wishes to try and keep them together.


Bella & Bear

OMG!  How CUTE Teresa!  I think that it's fantastic that you are doing this--pets are our little children--especially for this empty nester.  See--AR articles DO bring in the locals and it is a great way to show people just who you are inside--and you're such a doll, you need to let it SHINE!

Teresa.. You are a wonderful person.  This is a great idea.  I hope someone does adopt these two cuties.  My heart is devoted to cairn/westie dogs.. but you know this.  So if for some reason you come across one, let me know.  This would be just cause for us to finally meet...right?

HI Teresa, God bless you! You are just so precious to help this lady. You know we are suckers for rescues but I think we have our limit right now.. I just had to take one of ours to the vet this morning - might have to take out a loan ;-)  I trust the Lord will send a home or foster home for these sweeties.  God bless,  I will reblog this to try and get the word out!

Those two dogs are so beautiful! My heart hurts thinking about  family that has to give them up! On the flip side, how wonderful that you wrote about "operation Noah's Ark" and posted the blog to localsim! Great job reaching out to people and pets as well. I hope there is a happy outcome not only for the woman with stage 4 cancer but also for Bella and Bear.

Teresa,

My partner Gary and I foster dogs, too. And we always seem to get emergency requests to foster for other foster parents who are going out of town, getting, married, got sick, etc. Our own community of foster parents help each other. Glad you posted this, as I'm sure you will soon hear from volunteers who love animals and are willing to open their homes to care for them.

God bless you, Bella and Bear.
