Pet Feature ~ Meet Bear and Bella

I just had to share this story from my AR friend - Teresa Harris-Lake Norman NC Residential Real Estate Broker  Teresa and I both are animal and dog lovers! I am praying that the Lord will touch someone's heart that can help these precious puppies.  God bless,

Pet Feature ~ Meet Bear and Bella

Today I received an email from Melissa, a local lady that read one of my blog posts. As most people who subscribe to my blogs know I blog a lot about localism in the Lake Norman and Charlotte areas, about living green, and about pets. I am a firm believer that pets have an innocent way of enhancing our life’s if given a chance.

Melissa had read my, ‘Operation Noah’s Ark’ post which was about the rescue of hundreds of animals in an animal hording case. In fact this post has created more emails and calls than any other that I have written thus far; emails and calls asking who to contact to adopt these animals.

For the past month I have wanted to have a pet of the week or month that needs to be adopted, in hopes of being a link in assisting pets get a second chance.

Today, I was given the sign that now is the time to do my part.

The reason Melissa emailed me today was to find out if ‘Operation Noah’s Ark’ could take on two more dogs that were left at her house. Although, the organization will be contacted, I really doubt that they will be able to take on two more, with the hundreds and hundreds that they have to keep until the case goes to trial ….

Melissa's reason for having to give up these precious pets is because her mother in New York has stage 4 cancer and she is going to have to leave North Carolina by or before Thanksgiving to help care for her. I don't know and I doubt Melissa knows how long she will have to be in New York, but if we could possibly find someone who would be able to foster these two until she gets back to North Carolina may work.

Trust me I know that most all shelters and humane societies are maxed out, but I just can’t help but think that maybe someone in cyberspace is possibility looking for a great pet and will see these pictures and fall in love with them and decide to adopt them.

So Melissa this one is for you ~ my very first Pet Feature goes to Bear and Bella!

Please Meet Bear and Bella

Bear     Bella

They are sisters, who are beagle mixed, approximately one year old. Since they are sisters and they have been raised together since birth, it is Melissa’s wishes to try and keep them together.

Bella & Bear

Cheryl, They do look like they belong together...they're so cute.  I wish I could help, if I were there I'd take them but honestly, I don't know if I'd be able to give them back.  I'm sure they will find a wonderful family.

They look so sweet, looks like they like each other, too!  We haven't had a dog in several years, since our last one left us.  Just 2 cats, one so ornery her name is Varmit, and the other so sweet he acts like a dog...kid you not, he will take a walk with you!

Hi Cheryl!  Better late than never, right?!  I've been missing you and thought I'd come by and see what you'd been up to!  I too am a huge pet lover and hope that these dogs have found a home by now and that Melissa is free to care for her mother.

Happy Thanksgiving!
