Hello, I really want to thank you all for your time and care! Zach and Zoe complained during the ride home, but I was pretty shocked once we got into the house: I thought they'd need time to be afraid and settle in. Don't all cats? Nope. It was about five minutes before they were ready to play! Your adoption process is kind of extreme; I haven't been that thoroughly vetted since Character and Fitness exams for State Bars. (Just kidding; but it is extreme). Bringing these guys home I can see how lucky I was to find TARA -- with three months of wonderful, very careful care, Zach and Zoe are not like rescue animals I've experienced before; they are thoroughly socialized, well-behaved, really happy and healthy animals. Perhaps I'm missing something, but I'm shocked at the seemingly zero transition period. They're also already eating and drinking and have found all the good window spots. As soon as I know they've found the litter box, I'll be happy. And we're five hours in?!! First picture of twins and twins attached! I'll be happy to friend you guys on Facebook and post there too. (I work in Digital Marketing, would love to get us to the place where we can help an organization like TARA pro bono). Just really impressed by you all. Especially as a volunteer effort. Gives me more faith. Thanks again! Adrienne


He and Dahlia ran and chased and played until we finally made them quit. They havent been as playful since the heat hit but they have a good time together, even getting in trouble together. Sal now sits, waits for his leash and loads into the car just like a big boy. There have been one or two jealousy issues with Dahlia but I really think that is just adjustment time. We love him already and you should not expect him back in two weeks! Thanks for asking. Katei


He is a sweet and lovable guy. We renamed him cleetus and hes responding to name. He loves his walks and knows his bed. He is finally eating regularly and loves car rides.


Hi! I hope this e-mail finds you and your four-legged friends well! I wanted to send you an update now that we have reached our two-week mark. Yeah! Before I get started though - please let me know if it is okay to use these e-mail addresses. I want to keep you all updated from time to time but want to make sure I am sending them to a convenient e-mail address. Thanks! I can hardly believe we have reached two weeks since we picked up the love of our life! Deeks has grown so much with us and us with him since that day. He is getting more and more comfortable with his surroundings and recognizing our routine. He has traveled to his first girls softball game. The drive was only about 40 minutes from our home so he just rode in the backseat with Jenaye happily looking out the window and snuggling with her. He was such a good boy while there with all the activity going on. Of course, he was the star of the show. You have never seen so many girls going all mushy over a dog! :-) Deeks has also been on his very first shopping adventure to Petsmart. He was so well behaved and even made friends with the other dogs there that day. We were able to get Deeks set up at the local vet and he went for his first visit yesterday. The vet was very impressed with him and his health. She also commented on how impressed she was with the paperwork you all sent with us with his medical information. She has never seen a rescue take that much effort and be that precise with the medical information that is given including when the next dosage of medication is due, etc. So please know that your hard work and effort has not gone unnoticed! We now have Deeks established and are ready for the ongoing followups, etc. We are looking into fencing in our back yard. We walk him multiple times a day and have play time in the house but it isn't the same as being able to be "free". We hope to get something going soon so he can truly enjoy the outdoors the way he should. He does get to relax outside some under the shade tree while we are out in the yard. He likes to take it easy. I just want to thank you all again for everything you did for Deeks and for our family. We are truly enjoying each other and love being a family! Wishing you all the best! The Suever's & Deeks


Hello Tracey, I forgot about you asking for a pic of Ethos...so here he is. Sweetest little mongrel! His typical "hello" consists of a huge lick to whatever part of you he can get to! Oh, and as you can see from behind him, he REALLY likes to chew up shoes!
