It’s the night before Christmas and all through the land, the puppies, dogs, kitties, and cats who have found their forever homes are all nestled in bed waiting for Santa Claus! They sent their wishes for toys galore, treats, and food and so much more to Santa at the North Pole. “What would they get?” they pondered. They will pretend to sleep when ol’ Saint Nick arrives so they don’t scare him away as he scampers through the night.

Our friends; the pups, dogs, kittens and cats being cared for by the pawsome foster humans at the rescues will go to bed this silent night, another day has gone without a human to love and home to call their own. Maybe if they see Santa Claus, they can ask him for humans – ones to take them home, of course. They will spend Christmas Day with their pawsome loving foster parents or at a boarding place hoping the day will come when they will have a home to celebrate Christmas Day. To frolic and play on Christmas Day with the mini-humans in their new family will be the best ever dream come true for these pawsome puppies, dogs, kittens and cats.

As Santa Claus climbs down the chimney with care, he’s met by the big black dog that is there. “Santa!” he barks and continues, “My four-pawed friends at the rescues need presents too!” Santa says, “But what can they use or need?” The dog barks, “Santa, my friends at the rescues sent me their lists!”

My friend “Lab Lady” brought a few friends for you to meet and pawsibly adopt:

Meet Butterscotch and Pluto! This bonded pair of buddies is looking for a “Forever Home” in a rural or suburban single family home. No fence requirement.

Butterscotch and Pluto found themselves with Lab Rescue when their human moved to assisted living losing the only home they’ve ever known. The two are nice and affectionate dogs, adapting to the changes fairly well. The pair is house-trained and will sleep through the night. They know their names, basic commands, walk well on a leash, and enjoy being outside!

Butterscotch and Pluto are a pair of pawsome loveable Labs who are good with other big dogs, not fond of small dogs, and no cats! They are approved for mini-humans ages 6 and older.

Meet Daisy! She is a sweetheart looking for humans to love and a forever home to call her own! She’s looking for a single-family home in a rural or suburban setting. No fence requirement.

Daisy lived with an elderly human for years; they loved each other’s company! Barkingly, her human is unable to care for her.

Daisy enjoys going for walks and is good with other dogs. She likes going for car rides too!

Daisy has been around grand mini-humans so she is approved for ages 10 and older. She has no cat history.
