In honor of their 15th birthday, Petfinder is asking people everywhere to spread the word online today about adoptable pets! Take a look at Petfinder’s blog for a list of things you can do to help spread the word. Throughout the day, we’ll be updating our facebook status and tweeting about pets that are available for adoption on Petfinder.com.
We found Wally on Petfinder.com in September of last year. His adoption was arranged through Carrie’s Canine Rescue of New Hampshire. You can see his original Petfinder listing by clicking on the photo to the left.
Originally named “Paulie”, he and his 5 littermates had been turned over to a Tennessee rescue with their mother. Little did the rescue know, the puppies all had parvovirus – a virus that attacks the lining of the digestive system and causes dogs to be unable to absorb nutrients or liquids.
Even though their foster home gave them incredible intensive care, 2 of the 6 puppies did not make it. The remaining 4 puppies, Paulie (now our Wally), Lincoln, Bobble, Prudence and their mother, Penny, were all spayed and neutered and placed for adoption on Petfinder.
On September 25, 2010, Wally hitched a ride on the Last Chance Highway and made the long journey from Tennessee to his new home with us in Massachusetts. It was a match made in heaven!
LuLu and Wally say “THANK YOU, PETFINDER!” If it weren’t for Petfinder, we never would have found our Wally.
If you’re looking for any kind of pet, please check out Petfinder first. There are over 300,000 pets of all kinds listed as available for adoption through their website.
