Bandit WARL Dog Adoption Success Story

The Worcester Animal Rescue  League shared some good news about one of their pups.    Bandit  a German Shephard had been with them for a few months  was adopted! Bandit was adopted from WARL years ago and returned late last year after his owner sadly passed away. Bandit is smiling once more, as you can see!Bandit WARL Dog Adoption Success Story


A couple of years ago I was rescued from this shelter after being separated from my previous owner. I was so grateful and enjoyed every moment with my new best friend. Unfortunately my adopter recently passed away. Family could not care for me because I do not enjoy the company of other dogs. I am an intelligent, loyal, house trained nine year old boy. I am easy going, playful, and walk well on leash. I am quiet, and love meeting new people. I am an older guy who enjoys the simple things in life. A sunny day lounging in the grass, or a lazy rainy day on the couch. I am hoping to meet someone who shares these interests. If this sounds like you, don’t wait another minute! Come visit me today!

The tricks on Bandit’s resume includes sit, stay, down, paw, speak and he will keep a treat on his nose. And at 9 years young, he’s got years of fun and love to give.

His owner shared this later on  Just an update for everyone saying all of the great things, well he has taken over the bed so he is adapting well!!

Since our founding in 1912, the Worcester Animal Rescue League (WARL) has been dedicated to the care of the animals who provide so much for their human companions.

Founded initially by a group of women determined to save overworked and abused farm horses, WARL’s services have expanded and changed to protect, care, and love our cats and dogs throughout Central Massachusetts. Our staff and volunteers are dedicated champions to this cause and act as caretakers for the animals and educators to their human counterparts. We also work with foster homes, rescue groups, and other shelters nationwide to place animals in the best possible environment.11147060_10153124606465334_3786623572725309371_n

Without your support, however, nothing we do would be possible. WARL is a non-profit organization and your donations of money, time, supplies, homes, and love are vital to our cause and the lives of the animals in our care. Our sincerest thanks.

Worcester Animal Rescue League is committed to making adoption a success for both the adopter and the animal.Your safety and the safety, happiness and well-being of our shelter animals are our top priority.

When you are ready to adopt, you will receive your adoption folder, where we’ve enclosed tips, tricks and solutions to the most common issues people face with new pets. Feel free to call the shelter at 508-853-0030 or email us with any questions!

Callie a Senior Dog Pet Adoption Success

Most dogs in shelters and rescues have been there anywhere from a few days to several months.  Callie. a senior black lab  was in foster care with Broken Tails Rescue  for over 2 years  and finally adopted in December 2015.   Callie a Senior Dog Pet  Adoption Success

Hi, I’m Callie and I’m living at Broken Tail Rescue, Inc. in Lunenburg, Mass., where the vet thinks I’m around 10 years old.
Now, we were talking about love, right? Let me tell you about it!
I LOVE walks and hikes… and I also LOVE hanging out indoors, playing with my toys and cuddling with you!
I also LOVE going for car rides, and learning new things – my foster mom says I’m super-smart! Since coming to live with her, I’ve learned “sit,” “stay,” “down,” how to ring a bell when I need to go outside, and how to balance her checkbook.
(One of those things isn’t true… can you guess which one?)
I wish I could say I love other pets, but I probably should be an only pet.
You can talk about that with my friends, or set up a meeting, if you email I’d sure LOVE that!
Love, Callie

Broken Tails did a great You Tube video Callie

Here is their great news

After over 27 months in foster care, we are happy to announce that Callie has been adopted. We have waited to make this wonderful annoucement to make sure that the adoption would stick and it looks like Callie is finally in her forever home. We will miss you Callie but we know you are off to better adventures with a family of your own who will spoil you.

A note from Callies new mama

Great big thank you to Broken Tail Rescue and especially Callie’s wonderful foster mother for all of her help in transitioning Callie into my home. Callie is a sweet girl and a giant mush and I’m so happy to have her join my home. Thank you!!! Thank you also for all of the wonderful love and support here.

What is Broken Tail Rescue?

Broken Tail Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue organization run by a group of dedicated volunteers in Massachusetts. We save dogs and cats from euthanasia and find them loving, happy homes. We focus on local animals in the New England area primarily but we also assist southern dogs as well when space permits. If you are looking to adopt a dog or cat, look no further!

Help Broken Tail Rescue Save More Animals by Fostering!

Because Broken Tail Rescue does not have a shelter, we rely solely on our foster home network to provide a safe and stable temporary home to get them ready for adoption. It’s simple: the more people who open their homes for fostering, the more animals we can save. It’s a rewarding way to give to our organization and it’s a critical part of what we do. Most importantly, it’s fun! For more information please visit our volunteer page.

Thor a Senior Dog Adoption Happy Ending

Adopting a senior dog makes you an awesome person says one senior adoption dog rescuer.  We love sharing Happy Adoption stories but Senior  dog adoption stories are even more special.  Scituate Animal Shelter recently shared this update.  Thor a Senior Dog Adoption Happy Ending

Thor, a very healthy senior, 13 yr old lab had experienced enough in his recent past that it’s a miracle he hasn’t lost his smile. Thor originally came into the shelter when his beloved owner passed away.
At first, Thor struggled and who could blame him. He made incredible strides though and was ready to find his new, forever home.
Drumroll, please!

Thor was officially adopted by his new family this weekend after a trial visit. Our handsome senior guy is living in Hingham with his new mom and 2 adult human siblings. We’re so happy for Thor and his new family!

Scituate Animal Shelter

A bequest from Eleanor Haughey, a Scituate resident and quiet supporter of the Friends of the Scituate Shelter, Inc. made the dream of the Scituate Animal Shelter a reality! Through her legacy, funds were made available for the 1992 construction of a no-kill shelter, first located on a town parcel on the Driftway and lovingly named the Eleanor R. Haughey Animal Shelter.

As the Shelter grew, it became necessary to expand from our humble beginnings on the Driftway. Through the compassion, generosity, hard work and drive of all of our wonderful supporters and volunteers, we were able to relocate to our current address at 780 Chief Justice Cushing Highway (Rt. 3A) in Scituate, Massachusetts.

If you are looking to adopt

We provide exceptional guidance in helping you to select the right pet for you and your family. Our Shelter Director knows each animal “personally” and will get to know you too! This way, we create the best fit for both the new owner and the animal. Our ultimate goal is to match the right animal with the right “forever family”.

Our animals have been thoroughly screened. Every animal goes home with all medical records received during his/her time at the shelter, and many come with previous veterinary records which are forwarded to the new owner. All cats and kittens over 6 months of age are spayed or neutered, vaccinated against rabies and distemper, and screened for FIV and FELV, in addition, all felines are de-wormed and de-flea’d. Dogs and puppies over 6 months of age are spayed or neutered, vaccinated against rabies and distemper, and are screened for heartworm. In addition, our dogs’ behavior and temperament is professionally evaluated by our trainer. Every dog has a “report card” which highlights the animal’s personality and some considerations for a new owner. To help you find the best fit, we advise you on categories like energy level, leash manners, how they react to children, cats and other dogs. Each animal that is adopted from our shelter goes home with a free bag of Science Diet pet food.
