Priscilla the senior hound had never known the joys of living in a home until one of our remarkable friends saw her story and gave her a chance. Priscilla now enjoys regular walks, good food and the patient love of a truly good person.
Eloise's family came back to the shelter to visit and pick up her paperwork. She was left outside the shelter one morning. Fate intervened when a woman who appreciated feisty little terriers saw her picture and fell in love. We thought she didn't like men, but she loves this one! We look forward to many years of happy family photos from Eloise.
Cleo (formerly Squiggy) is shown relaxing in a nice cool spot. Her faimly reports that "[s]he is doing absolutely fantastic and is a wonderful part of our family. She adapted very quickly and has become our little love bug. She loves to cuddle and follow us around wherever we go. She also loves playing with our toddler."
Penuche was so scared when she first arrived as a stray that she flattened herself to the kennel floor like a pancake. Today she bravely goes on adventures, like visiting waterfalls, with her smitten humans.
"Rowdy (formerly known as Cheddar) is settling in well and is a total lovebug!" according to this cozy boy's new family. Rowdy is now in the lap of luxury, with a new bed, soft blanket, and a toy at the ready for after-nap playtime.
Forest (formerly Ziti, one of the pasta kittens) has landed in a great home! His new people adore him, and he has a new (very silly) feline friend to play hide and go seek.
Opie the mastiff arrived at the shelter with a tummy full of trash and worn teeth. Turns out he's a loveable escape artist with a taste for inedible objects. He's settling in with his new buddy Sadie and has learned to eat dog food without also eating the bowl!
Munch is a little dog with a big personality! He found a family with another dog, a lovely home and an appreciation for feisty terriers.
Max (formerly Bronson) knows a good photo opportunity. He's enjoying the good life in a family with another cat
Rennie is your webmaster's dog and a Milton Animal League alumnus. He is a small dog with a big personality who makes us laugh every day. He prefers toys who look like him, and this squeaky fox is his treasure.
Can you believe we found a stray goat in Milton? Hamish (now Milton) was found at the local skating rink and went to live at Winslow Farm in Norton. Go visit him and the rest of the animals at this wonderful sanctuary.
Mr. James Pickles (right) is quite comfortable in his new home, as you can see. He was a favorite of shelter volunteers and now plays and naps with his canine friend.
Maverick (formerly Sprocket) won the heart of a shelter volunteer and now plays happily with his new buddy Clay.
Gibson, the cat who needed surgery to remove inedible things from his intestines, is now relaxing in his new home. Nothing but tasty cat food and plenty of love in this cat's future!
Ozzie's people wrote: "We just celebrated the 14th anniversary of our adoption of Ozzie Whitedog. He is over 15 years old now and we feel very lucky to have had him for so long! He has been with us hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and on a cross country trip in our camper." We think Ozzie feels pretty lucky too!
Chanel was adopted as a kitten by a volunteer who was willing to give her a chance, despite the fact that Chanel does not have full use of one of her back legs. This challenge doesn't slow Chanel down a bit, and she has, as is clear in this picture, grown into a gorgeous cat. She is now living happily with two other rescued cats.
WB was adopted from the shelter by a volunteer in 2002. He shares his home with the lovely Chanelle. He and Chanelle (and their humans) will be moving to sunnier climes soon, where he'll be able to observe all sorts of new species from his window perch.
Timmy is a senior hound mix who came to the shelter as a stray. So many people passed him by "too old", they said. His new family sent us this photo and a note: "[we] are absolutely thrilled with our Timmy and both agree that adopting him was one of the very best decisions we have ever made. He brings us so much joy every day and asks for so little in return... If anyone expresses hesitation about adopting an older dog, refer them to us. We have a million reasons to recommend why they should."
Pumpkin was rescued by a kind Milton Police officer who found Pumpkin as a half-grown kitten with her head stuck in a fence. Despite a nasty wound on her neck, Pumpkin was as sweet as could be when she arrived at the shelter. We were so happy when her new human wrote to say "Thank you so much for finding her - she's already made such a hugely positive impact on my life in such a short period of time. She's playful,and a total snuggle-bug, and just the best!" We agree!
