Maggie is a special dog for a special person

Maggie is a special dog for a special person

For the month of December 2013, Beading Divas to the Rescue is raising money for SAFE (Saving Animals from Euthanasia.) SAFE is a non-profit “No-Kill” organization (501(c)(3)), providing service to Tucson, Arizona and surrounding communities. One of the most important things that SAFE does is to rescue animals for soldiers from Ft. Huachuca. Because of the soldier’s commitment to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan, they are forced to give up their pets. In many cases the animals are delivered to a shelter and there are way too many for the shelters to care for and keep. If the animals are not re-homed, within a few days they are killed.

Maggie (pictured) is a special little girl who needs a special home. She comes with medical issues, but that doesn’t affect her disposition. At just 11 lbs, she is a sweet little “Velcro” dog who loves to sit in your lap or lay at your feet. She is very affectionate and loves to cuddle with her human. Although only 2 years old, she has a calm demeanor and would fit in well in a home without young children. She learned to go out the doggie door and has never had an “accident” in her foster home.

As for her medical issues: Her pelvic bone is broken in 3 places and it has healed that way. The vet said that surgery could make it worse. The only outward sign of her injury is that she doesn’t jump up on furniture very often. It’s unknown what happened to Maggie; however, the jolt was strong enough to also disengage her uterus.

You can meet Maggie on Saturday, Dec. 7 at PETCO (Broadway/Craycroft) starting at 11 am. (Tucson)

Maggie and others like Maggie and dogs and cats without special needs are what rescue organizations do.

FAIR helps kittens

FAIR helps kittens

NoMa was found by a FAIR volunteer at her workplace. Extremely small she and her littermate were scooped up in a net and placed in a box. Her eyes were matted shut with infection and she was taken to the FAIR Feline Director’s house where she was cared for her infection and bottle fed until she could eat on her own.

NoMa fits in the palm of a hand. The name NoMa came to mind as it designates that this sweet little kitten had no mother. Fortunately, NoMa recently was adopted from a PetSmart meet & greet site.

NoMa is a small representation of the many cats and kittens that are adopted through FAIR each year. The amount of cats and dogs in foster care are limited only by the number of volunteers on hand who will open their hearts and homes to these beautiful orphans.

What a lovely story. The Beading Divas enjoy happy endings. Don’t you?

Can you help be a foster care volunteer?
