Rescued pets I saw Keisha's post this evening of her handsome Smushee, and she was crowd sourcing adopted pet photos. I wanted to share my girls' photos and their stories, because they are so very special. I adopted Sassafras from Danbury Animal Welfare Society in 2009. She was overly stressed, and had been in shelters for months if not years. It didn't take very long for Sassy and I to become the greatest of friends. She became my light and my life. I took a job transfer to Florida in 2011, and she came to love trips to the dog beach over hiking at East Rock or Lake Wintergreen. Soon after moving, I learned of an amazing rescue organization in South Florida, Big Dog Ranch Rescue. I wanted to find a "friend" for Sassy to keep her company during my long days at work. She is extremely picky about her doggie friends, so I knew it needed to be a very, very special dog. I only had one rule - no puppies! Well, on my second trip to The Ranch to view their available dogs, Lizbeth's quiet demeanor and sad eyes caught my attention among all of the other crazy barking dogs. She had me instantly...and she was only 12 weeks old. I was violating my own rule! Nearly three and a half years later, these two beautiful dogs are now inseparable. They may not sleep on the same bed, but they are rarely more than a few feet from each other. And, they build off of each other's strengths. They touch everyone who meets them, and I am so blessed that they rescued me. #adoptdontshop I am hopeful that the pictures come through. Lizzie is the dark brindle hugging a giant stuffed animal, which she does nightly before bed. And, Sassy is white with black spots "chilling" under the kitchen table...hoping for something to fall within her reach! Thank you for allowing me to share.

Rich and Shari Lee
Rich and Shari Lee adopted Muffy from "The Last Post" in 2008. She just turned 10 in July. She is the only cat we owned in the past 30 years that has ever wanted to be brushed all day long. She is just addicted to getting brushed and since she is longed haired we really don't mind. They have two other adopted cats as well, Sully and Simba.
129/229
Rich and Shari Lee
Rich and Shari Lee adopted Simba from the Westport Branch of the Connecticut Humane Society back in 2011. He was a kitten at the time and they wanted their other cat, Muffy, to have a friend. She didn't like him as a kitten and had no mother instinct, so they found another friend for both of them to play with and ended up adopting Sully, a Maine kitten.

Rich and Shari Lee
Rich and Shari Lee adopted Sully from a friend. They call him "The Moose" because he has grown from a small kitten into such a moose or bowling ball. He can body slam other dogs as well as other cats. Both Sully and Simba love to body slam each other all the time. They are best friends. They pick on Muffy but she still rules the roost.

April C.
This is Piper. She was adopted from the Waterford branch of the Connecticut Humane Society two years ago. She was two years old, extremely underweight and a trembling ball of nerves when she was rescued. Two years later, she's a perfectly healthy, gentle and sweet companion. She fiercely protects the backyard from squirrels and skunks (not without its stinky consequences) and her newest duties include snuggling and exploring with her newest family members: 3-month-old twins Jacob and Hannah.
144/229
Suki R. Kaplan
Autumn adopted Suki Kaplan's daughter when they visited Protectors of Animals in 2000. Autumn is very shy at first, but loving after she feels comfortable with you. When Suki and her daughter went to POA, they sat with Autumn in the "playroom" and she ran into a corner. A minute later, she ran up to Suki's daughter, jumped on her lap and climbed onto her shoulder, where she sat purring. Now that her daughter is a Peace Corps Volunteer in Madagascar, Autumn sleeps on her bed with "Dawg" the stuffed animal.

This is our perfect dog Lillian (Lilly). She's a dachshund mix from Prattville, AL. We rescued her in September 2011. She loves pop corn, pop tarts, and chasing squirrels. She's never done anything wrong and she's the best looking anything that lives in our home.

Rex HelloI just had a meeting with Todd and he requests that you put one of Rex's pictures on for Thursday. We rescued Rex 4 years ago when he was 5 months old. Rex fits in with our family perfectly and is a member of our family. My husband only had pure breeds before Rex and since we've had Rex he said he will only get rescue dogs in the future.Thank you!
