Hi!! I'm Janet -- all our pets have been adopted. We've had BJ the lab, Katie the collie mix and Maggie (my favorite) the lab. Right now we have Molly the lab, Charlie the Weimaraner and Tony (our first) the orange tabby. Can you tell I like labs? All have been black.

Hi Dana and welcome to the team. You'll have to stop by my page and see my girls. I have two senior ladies. One I adopted at 13 and she will be 14 next month.

Hi Dana, welcome to the team. That sounds like my Pussass, he adopted us in 2000, just showed up one day and never left, he's spoilt too as well as every other animal in our house

Hope you drop in on the Chatter thread and get to know everyone here

Hi Debbie welcome to the team.

An older dog is usually a great thing to adopt. One of my dogs was @7 years old when we first adopted her, she passed away in January at 15 years of age.

Looking forward to getting to know you here. emoticon

Hi ! I'm Debbie. Rescued an approximately 5 year old boxer last year. Was a little hesitant on getting an older dog and she was also being treated for heartworms. Found on the streets in SC and shipped up to NY. Not too fond of the snow but getting use to it. Very friendly and craves attention but, oddly, does NOT know how to play with any toys??? Tried every one we could think of but no go. Loves to walk, so she gets my husband and I out to exercise. Had adopted a Bassett Hound over a decade ago, who had to be put down. Previously had a boxer over 30 years ago. So glad we have her cause she is an absolute joy! Getting another boxer was one of the best decisions we ever made!

Hi, I'm Kathie and I just have an adopted kitty right now. My family have always adopted our pets, including another kitty, three puppies, and a horse. All of which have been wonderful loving members of the family. :) Nice to see so many adoptive parents on here!

Hi everybody,

I just wanted to come in and say emoticon to the new members and emoticon to all the kind welcome's I received.

My post was on 10/15 and I just re-read it. I meant to say 'bugs NOT so much' but I'm sure you all figured that out. emoticon

I need to get to the chat threads and see what's going on lately!

Hi, my name is Heather, and I just found this group and knew it was the group for me. I have 6 cats, two were rescued from a local humane society (Dobby and Penny), two were rescued from my own back yard (Hermione and her baby, Zazzles), one wandered into my fiance's apartment and adopted him years ago (Dune), and the other was rescued from someone who could not keep him (Loki). I also have one black lab/Australian shepherd mix (Keira) who I rescued from a local animal control center. I could not imagine my life without animals. If I had the money to do so I would rescue at least a dozen more. I always make sure that I share the updates and albums of the local humane society with family and friends on facebook so that more of these great animals can find their forever homes. I have done some volunteering for them as well, and I am hoping someday I can convince my fiance to volunteer to be a foster for some of the dogs who do not do well in the shelter environment.

I have just recently become active with SparkPeople and I am looking for positive teams to work with to achieve my health and fitness goals. I want to be the healthiest that I can be and I know that having a strong support team will help me stick with it and reach my goals. I look forward to getting to know all of you. emoticon

Thanks Millisma. I'm slowly figuring out how to get around and finally was able to post a picture of my boyz. Next week I'll have had them 3 months so they will be 13 months old. When I got them, they were both under 30 pounds and would lose their bowels if you raised your voice. Their only solace was having each other as they are brothers. They still sleep in the puppy cuddle and they can't be more than a few feet from each other but they are getting much better. When my beautiful wife, RJ came into the picture, they really came out of their shell and now can get about 15 to 20 feet from each other. They still have to see each other but they are getting more independent, well as much as they will be able to. I showed RJ the video's taken by CBC news and a private rescue of when they were rescued and it would break most people's hearts. As for myself, it just makes me mad that someone would abuse animals. Anyway, I'm getting to know my way around and I thank you for the tips.

Hi and welcome to the team. It takes a little while to learn your way around but it gets easier. Check out the "site guide" tab on the right side of the start page. Also, by going to your spark points page and earning points, it will help you to see some of the things that are available. Would love to learn more about your rescues. You will find so many amazing folks on this team with heartwarming stories about their pets. So glad you've joined us and if you have any questions, just ask and someone will help you out.

hugs.....Mary Anne

Hi, I'm new to this team so please excuse me while I blunder around. I joined this team because I have just retired and I have been involved in Dog Rescue, Rehabilitation and Training for over 40 years. I just adopted two Border Collie brothers in August who are 1 year old and were rescued from a Hoarders Farm in Manitoba in July. There were about 100 dogs involved although most were too far gone to save and only 27 survived. The survivors were sent to various cities on the Prairies but I had received advance word about these two guys and had them sent to BC for me. I'd love to tell you about their struggles and rehabilitation but I'm still struggling to figure out this site. They provide motivation for me in my weight loss because if they can survive the abuse they once went through, I can survive a diet plan that I can stick to. I'll post some pictures and tell you about them when I figure out how to in fact post pictures.

Hope to be in touch with you later.

Hi everyone,

My name is Barbara and I'm back on SP after only being on this site for about 8 weeks a year ago. I just came back on 10/10/13 and trying to do it right this time.

I'm so glad I came across this team. I have two amazing adopted cats (one from SPCA and one from the Humane Society and their pics are on my page) that I love named Bella and Chloe. I've had all kinds of pets over the years and love them all... ummm... bugs so much. ;-)

I just wanted to stop by... say 'Hi' and I look forward to talking to other dog and cat lovers on here soon.

Hi Lisa, great to see you here.

Those little Griffons are cuties, I always remember the one with Jack Nicholson in "As good as it gets" always thought he was better looking than Nicholson as well!!

Hi everyone my name is Lisa and I have an 8 year old female pug and a 6 year old male brussels griffon. I just adopted Wicket (the bg) about 7 weeks ago and I've had Izzy (pug) since she was a baby. My other pug Aggy who was a puppymill rescue 6 years ago passed away in April.

Hello all, my name is Steph. I've been on SparkPeople for quite some time, but away for a long while, and I'm trying to make a comeback.

My partner and I are mommies to three cats, a turtle and a puppy, and all but the turtle are rescued or adopted.

Our first cat, Smitty, was adopted in 2005 at 8 weeks old from the local humane society. He's a tuxedo cat, and a bit of a suck. Our second cat, Ruby, was a rescue that we took in as an adult in 2006. She's a long-haired calico, and a bit moody. Our third cat, Turtle (yes, that's the cat's name - the turtle's name is Donatello) is a tortoiseshell we adopted as a young kitten in 2011, again from the local humane society. She is an absolute sweetheart. Our newest addition to the family is Miley (NOT named after Miley Cyrus - lol), our hound/lab/husky/akbash mix, who we adopted at 5 months old on July 1st of this year. She's still learning the ropes, but making good progress settling in to the family.

We have a house full of rescued furbabies, and I don't think we'll ever get one any other way.

Hi Tricia and welcome to a great team of animal lovers. I have two kitties. PolyDactyl is a tortie I rescued about 11 years ago. The lady is my profile pic was Ms Molly who crossed over rainbow bridge in January at the age of almost 19. She was 8 when we rescued her (family didn't want her anymore). In March, I rescued Daisy (still have to post a picture of her) and she had been turned in by her family at the age of 13!!!! So I still have the golden girls.

Glad you've joined us and you'll have to stop in on our chat line. Here is the link:

Hi, my name is Tricia. I am from Virginia. I am married with two daughters. Love the outdoors and love animals. I have been with Spark a year and a half. Made a little progress and looking to make some more. I have two pets, Sadie and Dutch.

I adopted a cat for my daughters in April. Her name is Sadie. I can't imagine why anyone could have given her up, she is the sweetest cat. I already had a Springer Spaniel that was a birthday present from my husband. He is a great dog and I am so lucky the two of them get along. I knew he liked cats, but I didn't know how she would react. I have enough space and can easily afford to adopt another cat within a month. I don't have an animal shelter in my county, so I have to drive 30 miles to the nearest one. I was really impressed with the staff and the facility. They are a no kill shelter, so if I am in the area, I take a bag of food and I set up my food lion mvp card to donate to the shelter when I go shopping.

Hi Alice, welcome to the team.

You stopping on the road sounds like me when I stopped on a 4 lane freeway and picked up two dogs. How they didn't get run over I'll never know.

You sound like you have a full house there.

You will love it here on this team, the members are so friendly and helpful, you'll make friends here very soon.

Hello, Everybody ~ ~

My name is Alice. I live in Wichita Falls TX with my DH, 4 rescued cats, a rescued from brutal abuse Golden Lab, and a little shih tzu rescued from the shelter.

Our cats, CICI is a boy who we found as a tiny tiny baby out in the cold 20* weather on Christmas Eve 13 years ago. Thus the name CICI (Christmas Cat)

Sparkles is a girl, rescued from the middle of an intersection of 6 lane/4 lane highway connection in 5PM traffic. She was just sprawled out on the ground meowing. I just stopped my car in the middle of traffic, jumped out of the car, swept her up and threw her in the front seat. DH gave me two weeks to get rid of that cat. That was 11 years ago.

Prince is a boy, found in the middle of the street as a young kitten by a woman and little girl. We had never seen these people before, but they brought the kitten to our front door saying they could not keep it and wondered if we could take him. DH grabbed him without hesitation. That was 3 years ago.

The most recent is Jacie, a little girl. We found her in the back yard with eyes matted shut and a snotty nose. We took her to the vet and went through a long healing process with her. That was about 10 months ago. She is our little curious one and not at all bashful around strangers. On my page is a picture of her in the middle of the tools of the plumber as if she is helping him work on the garbage disposal.

Our dogs: Heidi is a Golden Lab left tied to our front door with a big red bow and papers along with a letter from Heidi introducing herself and telling about her mean and abused life. The doorbell rang and there she was. As DH answered the door and found her, his daughter and family came from behind the travel trailer. That was 11 years ago.

And then there is Lucas, a boy ShihTzu taken from the local animal shelter. He is a real corker. He was about 4 years old at best guess. He is a real clown and wants to be loved all the time. We have had him 1 1/2 years.

That is the story of our little group. We are currently nursing a tiny kitten we found in the back yard with eyes matty shut and a very bad rattle in his chest. He only weighed 1 pound when we took him to the vet. He has been on antibiotics, ear medication, and eye ointment. One eye was nearly non-existent. He is a darling and his eye has come around a bit. His 3rd eyelid has taken over the eye for protection. He is really something else. Loves eyeglasses and earrings. Is strong as an ox. We have him isolated from the other animals, so I spend a lot of time in "his room" with him. I swear he lifts weights when I am not in there with him. He has a forever home in Colo whenever connections can be made for him to go home. TheHerdLady and family are going to take him, love him, raise him and give him a great home. I am happy for hiim, but sad because the little stink has stolen my heart. The only comfort is that he will be cared for and loved for the rest of his life.

Hi Margie it's good to see you here on this team. You'll make fast friends with many here as they are as you, an animal lover.

I have 3 hairys, a Lhasa Apso named Bruno, a Jack Russell called Ladybird and an Australian Terrier called Maggs (or Magget!!) I also have a 14 year old cat called Pussass and a Cockatoo called "Cocky" (yeah I know, we thought long and hard with that name) who is at least 40 years old. They are all adopted or rescued and all spoilt.

We all understand the heartbreak when we lose one of our treasured pets but there's always another ready to be adopted or rescued and who will make their own place in your heart.

Good to see you here emoticon

Peace and long life - Jules

Hi Margie, so glad to have you on this awesome team. I, too, invite you to join us on the chat thread. We certainly do understand your heartache at having to put down a furbaby. I had to make that decision for my Honeybear who lived to be 14. She was a yellow lab and my heart dog! I now have an adorable rescued Jack Russell named Zoey. She is precious and is helping my heart to heal.

Always feel free to share on this team. We do understand!

Hi Margie and welcome to the team. You will find that we all understand your feelings. It is very difficult to lose a fur baby. They become one of the family and it hurts just as much. The calico in my profile pic is Ms Molly. Had rescued her at eight and had to help her cross over on January 4th of this year. She would have been 19 the past spring. Still miss her especially when I get into the shower since she always had to come and help! I ended up rescuing at 13 year old, Daisy (anther calico) since I still have PolyDactyl who is around 12.

Shelby and Lexus will always be in your heart. As that saying goes, they leave paw prints on your heart. Now, you have rescued two more to share your love.

Please join us on the chat thread www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messagebo

Hi, my name is Margie. My husband and I were adopted by my two fur babies two and a half years ago. They are both German Shepherds rescued from the animal shelter in Carson California. My male is Nitro and my female is Roxie. We had two female German Shepherds previously, Lexus and Shelby, also adopted from the Carson Shelter, who shared our lives for twelve years before they went over the Rainbow Bridge. I was devastated after Lexus crossed over, and Shelby was lonely, so I went looking for a "playmate" for her, as we work during the day. Shelby is/was my heart. I still grieve for her. I found Max, yes another German Shepherd, I really love that breed, who was only six months old and he was stolen from my back yard. So once again I had to go looking for a friend for Shelby. I found Nitro who was nine months old at the time and he and Shelby got along great until I had to make the decision to put my beloved Shelby down. It was the hardest thing I have ever done and I still get tears in my eyes when I think about it. Even though I know that I had to do it for her, that I had to let her go because she was suffering, I still wonder if there was anything else I could have done. Reality sinks in and I realize that there really wasn't and that I am beating myself up for something that I have no control over. That it was her time and I will see her again. Sorry for being such a downer. I am not normally so melancholy, but since you are all animal lovers too, I figure you will relate to my pain. Anyways, I went once again to the shelter to find Nitro a playmate and found Roxie. So we are now all one big family trying to live this wonderful life. Whew, glad I got all that off my chest, I guess I had that in there a little too long. Glad to be here and hope to be able to contribute more positively in the future. emoticon

Some how I lost this thread and see that there have been many new members. Want to say hi to all new members. This is a great team of animals lovers. I have two rescue kitties. PolyDactyl has been with me for almost 11 years (she is about 12+). I recently rescued Daisy at age 13 - her family no longer wanted a pet. She is a work in progress and would prefer to still me an only but oh well! The beauty in my profile picture is Ms Molly. She passed in January and would have been 19 this past spring.

Hi Carol welcome to our very special team.

It's one of the hardest things to do as a pet owner, knowing when and having the fortitude to do the one job none of us want to do.

The great thing about new pets is they don't fill the hole left by your last pet, they find their own place in your heart that is theirs and theirs alone.

I'm so glad that Polly has found a wonderful forever home and that another little one will be joining her.

Peace and long life - Jules

Hi, I'm Carol and I've been a Spark Member for years but new to this team. I had a wonderful, loving Pug named Trixie for 15 years and had to make that hardest of decisions to release her from her suffering last month. I fought this decision for 11 months but knew - as my Vet said I would - when the time had come to be totally "unselfish" and let her go. Trixie was almost blind; had doggie dementia; suffered from terrible arthritis; could not hear and had almost no sense of smell left. The final horror was when she had constant, and continuous, diarrhea and could not control her bowels any longer. All in all, this beautiful creature of God was living a life void of quality and filled with suffering. emoticon

I thought I would never get another dog but in talking to DH, I found out he felt just as I did - that our house was empty. I had a huge hole in my heart and I finally realized that I needed another pet to fill that hole. A couple of weeks ago DH and I went to an adoption event at our local Pet Smart put on by a local "No-Kill Shelter." We went "just to look." You guessed it! We adopted a long-hair Chihuahua mix that I named Polly. She is 2 yrs. old and was abused and dumped at a "Kill Shelter" in the area. Polly was rescued by the "No-Kill Shelter" just hours before she would have been put down. I am so grateful to God that He saw fit to save this sweet little baby girl. She took to DH and me like she'd known us all her life. She shows us every hour of every day how happy she is to be loved and taken care of and she even sleeps at the foot of the bed! emoticon

Polly will never "replace" Trixie but she has a piece of my heart - right next to the piece that still belongs to Trixie. DH and I are going to adopt another Chihuahua mix within the next month so that we can give another sweet baby a good home and Polly a playmate emoticon

Glad to be on the Team! emoticon

Hi Darlene, I know what it's like living in the pets house, I just wish they'd clean up after me!!

Heidi, love the name Napoleon Solo, straight from the Man from UNCLE!!. I know all about biters, Pussass was an assassin cat for a while, but they do calm down after a while ...... hopefully

So glad to have both of you here

Hello!

I'm Heidi and I have two rescued/adopted kitties.

My oldest is Gwen, at 13. I adopted her from an animal shelter in my hometown when she was just a few months old.

My newest kitty is Napoleon Solo. He is three months old and we took him in when he was just five weeks. He was with a litter that was found in the back of an old pontoon boat where my husband works. It was rough going at first, but thankfully, he's growing healthy and strong...but he a little bit of a biter!

Good to meet others who love pets and feel that the best is a rescue/adopted pet. They're not LIKE family. They ARE family! :-)

Hi! My name is Darlene, and I live in my cat Jinx's house in Iowa with my husband and 3 girls. We got her from the ARL in Des Moines over a year ago, and I can't even imagine life without her now. She is my stress relief, companion, and entertainment all rolled up into one. As I say to my family-"I am just so glad that she let's us live in her house!" emoticon

Hi everyone. My name is Jan. I am originally from Canada but now live in Australia with my husband, Graeme, and our two boy cats - Hugo and Kasper.

I have lost and regained so much weight and really just want to stop eating the junk and start exercising.

It's nice to be part of a group that is as crazy about our furry companions as I am.


If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

Hi Patti and welcome to the team. You will find a great bunch of animal lovers here. I have two kitties that adopted me and can't imagine not having a furry friend around. Join us on the monthly chat.

Hi, I'm Pattie, and I'm owned by a delightful rescue dog, Jasper. We live in upstate New York on 17 acres of forest just outside the Adirondack Park.

I was invited to this wonderful team by my good friend Sandi (GOOZLEBEAR). I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi Lynn, Joanne and Lesley! Welcome to this wonderful team. When I first joined I didn't have a rescue but sure am a dog lover! I now have a wonderful rescue Jack Russell, named Zoey that rules the roost for sure.

We are glad to have all of you!!

Hi Lesley, welcome to the team. It's definitely not a pre-requisite to have an adopted or rescue pet to be part of the team. We are all animals lovers here so that usually does the trick.

I must say I have a soft spot for Toy Poodles, they are such sturdy little dogs, but I really don't care what breed it is as long as it needs a home and wants love.

I hope you enjoy it here Lesley

Hi I'm Lesley I have a new puppy who is now 4 months old her name is Sophie and she is a GoldenDoodle, I did not rescue her but would still like to be a part of the team. Our former dog of 16 years was adopted from a young couple who were unable to keep her in an apartment, and she was much loved. My son and DIL have 2 toy poodles Lily and Panela ... Lily was first so hence my SP call name !!

Hi JoAnn welcome to the team. I can imagine how hyper he is, he's only a puppy. Wonder who had an 8month old puppy and decided not to keep it, people can be scumbags sometimes.

Good for you on your weight loss ... I can identify, I'm STILL working on mine

Hope you like it here

Hi Everyone I am a 24 yr old dispatcher and volunteer medic. I have one lab mix dog that I got from a friend who rescues animals from the local kill shelter. He is 8 months old and completely hyper but I love him. I am single and working on losing 175lbs.

Hi Lynn, welcome to the team. I can understand why your favourite people are your pets, they listen to everything you say, don't give you any lip and are ready with kisses and hugs whenever you need them.

This is a great team, you'll be firm friends with everyone here before you know it.

Hi! I'm Lynn. I'm a 23 year-old college graduate hoping to eventually pursue a masters in Marine Biology. I live with my parents, my sister, Alamosa (an 11 year-old mix that we rescued as a puppy), and my furbaby, Tegan (an orange tabby I adopted in 2009 when she was a year old).

I guess if you asked my who my favorite people are, I'd have to say Allie and Tegan, so this seems like a great team!
