Treasure Thursday



Happy Thursday Everyone!!

I've been posting too much during the last couple of days, huh?! ;-) I guess there's so much going on! As always it's Treasure Thursday, which means that I'll be featuring three different shelters/rescue groups and three amazing dogs that need wonderful homes!

Freckles the Dog PetSmart


The first weekend in the November (November 2-4), is pretty important this year as it's PetSmart Charities National AdoptionWeekend, sponsored by PetSmart, Purina® Pro Plan® and Tidy Cats®. Thousands of dogs and cats will hopefully find their forever homes during that weekend, just in time for the Holiday Season! There's nothing better than having a warm bed, a full tummy, and a wonderful family to love you!! Don't you all agree?

The adoption weekend will be taking place in the US, Canada, and even Puerto Rico! And along with their normal adoption fees, each shelter/rescue will receive $35 in adoption reward grants from PetSmart Charities for each animal adopted during the weekend! Whoa! That's pretty incredible, isn't it? :-D

So, in order to pass along information, help out a couple of shelters/rescues, and get the word out...I've decided to focus on three groups that have agreed to participate in the adoption weekend!

My first featured dog's name is Blackie, a beautiful schnauzer and lab mix, currently being adopted out through the Humane Societyof Forsyth County in Cumming, Georgia! " The Humane Society of Forsyth County in Cumming, Georgia is dedicated to preventing cruelty to, relieving the suffering of, and providing humane treatment for animals. We stand by the fact that we are one of a few NO-KILL shelters in this area."

If you are interested in seeing Blackie in person, or perhaps meeting another amazing dog or cat, the Humane Society will be at the PetSmart in Cumming (1020 Market Place Boulevard) during November 2-4! If you would like to read more about Blackie, please visit her personal page, or if you would like to see the rest of their available animals, please click here!

My second featured dog's name is Dixie, who's had a rough start in life, but isn't letting it get her down! She is currently being adopted through the Delaware Humane Association in Wilmington, Delaware. " The Delaware Humane Association (DHA) is Delaware’s first no kill animal shelter and adoption center. We are committed to providing for the needs of homeless dogs and cats in our community."

If you are interested in seeing Dixie in person, or even meeting one of their other amazing dogs or cats, the Delaware Humane Association will be at two different PetSmart locations: cats and kittens will be available in the Brandywine Town Center, Wilmington and cats and dogs at Christiana in Newark, Delaware! You can see all of their available animals here and can see additional photos and information on Dixie here!

My third and final featured dog's name is Buster Brown (how amazing is his name?) a gorgeous corgi mix from Freedom Farm Animal Sanctuary in Middle, Tennessee! " FFAS is dedicated to rescuing abused, abandoned and neglected animals in and around Middle TN area. We encourage proper pet care and advocate spaying and neutering to help stop pet overpopulation. We currently use a system of foster homes to house all the animals in our care."

Freckles the Dog Freedom Farm

If you are interested in seeing either Buster Brown or one of their other amazing dogs or cats available, Freedom Farms' volunteers will be at the PetSmart in Rivergate during that weekend! Friday and Sunday will only feature cats and kittens, however Saturday dogs will be invited along! You can see the rest of their available animals here and Buster Brown's personal page can be found here!

Thanks for stopping by Treasure Thursday, like always!

Please remember that there are over 2000 rescues and shelters working with PetSmart during the first weekend of November, so if I didn't feature a location near you, have no fear! Just contact your local PetSmart and see who will be stopping by!!

Have a great rest of the day everyone!!

  3. Being a rescue pooch, I asked Mom & Dad if we can have about a hundred more here. They say they would love to, but our little town has a limit of three, so we are full. Now I am sad for all my buddies out there. It's wonderful that you have put all the work into helping get adoption news out.

  9. Hi Goose, I love it that you bring so much positive attention to pets in need of a furever home. I always said that if I could, I'd have at least two, maybe three more pups. Hoping each of these find their new families.
