Over the past few years, HELP has placed thousands of animals in loving homes. Some were easy to place, others were harder, and of those, some have a story to tell that we'd like to share.
Harley & Toni
After Thomas was killed in May 2001, we said no more pets. However as fall came John decided we should probably get another cat. So in October 2001, we went to visit the Help Shelter. After looking at all of the pets, we decided on two cats. They were in the same cage, no relation, and about 6 months old. Harley is a black and white Bowtie, and Toni is a Tortishell. They were having a lot of fun playing together, and we decided it would not be fair to take one and not the other. We brought them home, and Toni hid under John’s workbench for awhile, and finally I coaxed her out and took her upstairs to the family room. By nine p.m. she was on the sofa making herself at home. They are always at the door to greet you when you come home.
Cats are very smart, and they make very good company and especially if you live alone. After John died we had a problem, since there was only one lap to sit in, but it has been solved. They seem to know if you need some tender loving care. They are now almost 12 years old, and we have a good time together. - Erma
To all the "Angels" at HELP the Animals... Hi, This is "Pretty Girl", just wanted to let you all know how happy I am in my forever home. (Thank You Wendy)
My favorite mom tells everyone, she loves watching me run all over the house and having me curl up with her while she reads or watches TV. We were meant to be together.
She tells me her son is going to build a really cool stand so I can do my bird watching and see the squirrels chasing others up and down the trees. Life is good!
