Rescue for Roadie

Update Jan. 7: Jill and Ken took Roadie home; they report that although he is slowly making adjustments, they adore him and will do what is necessary to make him feel right at home. 

Roadie was rescued by Evangeline’s granddaughter, when he was hit by a car and left to die in the road. He has been with Evangeline for four years since, very protective and very distressed by her illness.

Evangeline passed away over the weekend and her children are hoping to find a new home for Roadie as they all have to return to their own homes out of state and country.

Roadie is a mixed breed, weighing about 22 pounds. He is neutered and up to date on his shots. He warms up quickly to new visitors. Roadie has been the only animal in his home but the daughter noted that when put together with her two dogs, he got along nicely. He is a dog that bonds closely.

Roadie would do well in a home by himself or with other dogs but it is unclear as to how he would react to cats and children.

Can you give Roadie a new home or help us find a new home for him? Roadie currently lives in Fort Myers and is eager to meet you.  Please ask for details on meeting Roadie at your convenience.

Hope can help pay for the initial vet needs, grooming, and start up supplies. If interested, please contact Colette at 985-7728.

Oh Baby, Baby!

Update Dec. 23: Baby found a new home with a schoolteacher and a Realtor. Thank you to everyone for spreading the word and helping us find a new home for Baby!

Ten year old Baby has enjoyed nearly a decade of wonderful years with her owner James. She is an indoor cat who is spayed with up-to-date rabies shots.

As James approaches the end of life, his caregiver is no longer able to lift and clean the kitty litter or to provide all the care that Baby needs. Could you find room in your home for James’ friend? Baby’s mellow personality would be a great fit for many households; though she has never lived with another pet, it may be possible to do so.

James and Baby are currently in Lehigh Acres, but please ask for details on meeting this special cat at your convenience.

Hope can help pay for the initial vet needs, grooming, and start up supplies.

Please contact Colette at (239) 985-7728.  If you know of someone who may be interested, help us by passing this information along.
