Our adoption event was this past weekend, and we had such a fun time!! The two selected rescues, Wilson Animal Rescue and Real Good Dog, brought out so many sweet, sweet pups to the event. One special attendee was a sweet dog named Okra. Upon her arrival, Wilson Animal Rescue informed us that she was just on a "field trip" from the Memphis Animal Shelter for the day and would have to be returned to the shelter after our event was over. Okra was on the URGENT: EUTHANASIA list and could be put down at any minute. This news broke our hearts here at Redeemers Group!! While none of the attendees of our event were able to adopt Okra that day, Redeemers Group made a special Facebook post to get the word out about Okra. By Sunday the post had been circulated between all the local rescues, boarding arrangements were made, and a foster was found for her!! Wilson Animal Rescue went Sunday, claimed Okra, then took her to her new foster home!! This was such a happy ending to our event!! We were also able to donate $201 to Real Good Dog, who later let us know that one of the puppies they brought to the event had already been adopted, and that they had received a few more offers for fostering and adopting. We were so happy to have such good feedback from the rescues, and more importantly save sweet Okra!!
These sweet babies still need your help!! If you're interesting in becoming a foster, volunteering, donating supplies or a monetary amount, or even considering adopting one of these sweet babies, visit these websites for Real Good Dog and Wilson Animal Rescue!
