just want to say thank you to you and
Operation Kindness for matching me with
this awesome dog named Dexter. I have
had him for more than six months now
and things could not be better. I live
in a town home in Dallas and was concerned
about getting a larger dog, but Dexter
could not have adjusted better. He and
I enjoy our daily walks, and I must admit
he has adjusted much better than some
of the smaller dogs that I have had.
We spend time on the weekends at my sisters
ranch, and he has such a great time running
with the other dogs, playing in the mud
and chasing us around in the cub cadet.
I will never have another pet that isn't
a rescue animal! You guys are great.
Joel and Maggie S.
is a wonderful puppy, FULL of energy!
While you can tell baths are not his
favorite activity, he does love to run
around the yard and play fetch and always
keeps US active! He has made a couple
of trips to the dog park at White Rock
Lake and quickly made friends with other
puppies and older dogs. Everyone at his
Vet's office adores him! Strangers continuously
compliment him on being such a handsome
dog! We are planning on beginning obedience
training in November. Overall, we could
not be happier with our decision to adopt
Oliver. He is an entertaining and loyal
friend and we look forward to enjoying
many years together!
Perfect Pair -
ELLIOTT & BOUDREAUX
adopted Elliott (orange kitty) from you
in December of 2004 and Boudreaux (grey/white)
was a Hurricane Katrina rescuee that
I adopted from you in September of 2005.
As you can see, they are best friends.
It's not evident from the photo, but
Elliott is a big boy. Not fat, but tall
and big boned. Boudreaux is a little
guy, small and petite in stature. Both
are sweet and loving, Elliott especially
is a big Mama's Boy, and both bring so
much joy to my life. I have a grey tabby,
Esther, that I adopted from OK in 1997.
She is now 11 years young and rules the
house. Thanks, again and again, for bringing
them all into my life.
just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful
addition to my family. I adopted Joey,
the cute little Schnauzer mix you guys
had. He has more than adjusted well to
his new home. He is perfectly housetrained
loves to "go bye-bye" in the
car, love to play fetch, and loves to
run and run and run in the back yard.
His new name is Baxter and he has yet
to meet a stranger. He has a ton of toys
to play with and finally has the life
he deserves. I was very concerned about
bringing him into a home with two eight
year old cats, but they have all gotten
along perfectly.... they all play together
like they have always been together.
I just cant believe somebody gave this
sweetheart away. I also want to especially
thank Rebecca Fox for all of her help.
I love her for what she did for me and
wanted to update you on Mary, the little
pitbull I adopted from your shelter a
couple of weeks ago. We've renamed her
Pumpkin because she's sweet as pumpkin
was also very easy to housetrain. (I
just put her on a leash in the house
and tied the leash around my waist and
never let her out of my sight.) I still
keep an eye on her, but we think the
accidents in the beginning were due to
you so much for all the good work you
do and for taking Mary in off the streets
and saving her life. Please thank Rebecca
in particular and tell her that Mary
nee Pumpkin has found her forever home!
you for all of you who work or volunteer with Operation
Kindness. I adopted my little Shih Tzu "Sasha" from
you on 12/15/07. She was very sick at
the time. You are the ones who rescued her. Your
volunteers helped me be sure that Sasha
would interact nicely with a cat. You
answered my questions and calmed my nerves.
Thank you for all you did. I feel very
blessed to have little Sasha Marie in
my life. Learning how
much went into Sasha's care before I
adopted her gave me just a small idea
of the HUGE things that donations pay
for. Thank you again, so much, for saving
her precious life.
you for your follow up on Mandy. I kept
the name Mandy because she looked like
a Mandy. I want to thank you for the
privilege of adopting her. She is so
precious and lovable that I can't understand
why you had her so long except for her
age. My vet thinks she is closer to 10
years old as opposed to 8 years old.
It doesn't matter to me or my other wonderful
shelter dog, Darby, how old she is. The
old saying "You can't teach an old
dog new tricks" doesn't apply to
Mandy! She has not had any health or
behavior problems. She just wants to
be loved. Mandy is a joy and a wonderful
companion. She and Darby sit on my lap
at the same time! She is real smart (I
know everyone says that about their dog!)
and she learned the doggie door in 3
tries. I feel so blessed to have Mandy
and Darby in my life. Thank you again
for letting me adopt Mandy. I promise
you she will have a wonderful home for
several years to come!
