Over ten years ago I was introduced to a wonderful animal rescue organization called Perfect Pet Rescue in West Los Angeles. It was started over 18 years ago by Nancy and Nancy. They scour local animal shelters adopting dogs that are hours away from being put down. They rescue them from certain death and find them loving homes.
The lives of over 10,000 dogs have been saved since they began their labour of love. I’ve adopted 3 wonderful dogs from Perfect Pet myself – Charlie, Scout and Zoey! Even actress Kathy Bates has adopted from Perfect Pet. She was there the same day I got my Zoey.
Nancy and Nancy and Perfect Pet Rescue are big fans of K-EARTH 101, and I’m a big fan of theirs. And they tell me that their rescue dogs who are waiting for homes all get to listen to K-EARTH 101! How perfect would it be for a human K-EARTH listener to adopt a canine K-EARTH listeners? It would be perfect! Adoptions are slow and Perfect Pet needs to find homes for all their rescue dogs. You see, once a dog is adopted, Nancy and Nancy have room at their kennel to rescue another dog from the shelter. It’s a win-win-win!
I spoke with Nancy and Nancy recently and they shared this success story with me:
“A few weeks ago we rescued Posh(pictured), a terrier mix who was 4-5 months old. She was not expected to leave the shelter alive because she had developed a cold called “kennel cough.” Colds are not fatal to people or dogs but few people want to rescue a sick puppy. We fell in love with Posh because she was so so sweet and gentle, so we rescued her from the shelter.
When we got a call from a family in Victorville, we were surprised because they were several hours away from our location in West LA. They had recently lost a dog to old age and their dog looked a lot like Posh. They drove nearly 4 hours in a rainstorm to meet and adopt her.
Posh went to her new home with antibiotics and is doing great! ‘She’s the best girl ever and worth all the effort,’ says her new family.”
Perfect Pet has all kinds of dog who all need loving homes. I dare you to look at their faces and not want one for your own! I couldn’t.
