Plenty of news from!

There's plenty of good going on here at that I wanted to share.

Right off the bat, there have been several new dogs placed on the Adoptions Page  (NOTE: The Senior Pooch Adoptions page has been taken offline, but we thank those of you who have contributed to helping to get so many senior pooches rescued.) Check out Sammy here who is a great dog that is looking for a forever home down here in Southern California:

He gets along with everyone (people, cats, other dogs).

This morning I woke up to find that Max a senior beagle who has been on the site since March of this year was adopted. Not bad for a 14 year old gentleman with three legs. Kudos to Max, his foster parents, and his proud new parents for showing him the love that he deserves.

On the rescue front, I've been talking with Bernice Friedman of ARRF, a rescue in San Diego, CA, and will be monitoring her ads and cross-posting her rescues' older members. There are a couple of long time rescues that you should look at in Shelbie and Maxwell who have been on Senior Pooch for some time, in addition to the newly adoptable Maple who was rescued from the North County Shelter.

Joining a rescue organization is something that I've considered for some time and recently I started volunteering with The Dog Squad here in San Diego. If you don't recall, The Dog Squad's Sue Barbato was the person who brought Boo Boo to the Petsmart event that I would find and adopt him. I'm working on touching up their website and will be attending my first adoption event as a volunteer later this month. I'll let you know where and when as soon as I have all the details.

Thanks once again to all of you who are part of the mission to save more senior dogs. I'm touched by your support and efforts. I'd like to give a special shout out to Andrea Portbury of The German Shepherd Rescue and Adoptions of North Carolina for a spectacular interview this week (one of the most popular on the site ever) and the fine folks at The Barkers Dozen for a nice box of treats to thank us for posting about their Dollars for Daffy event.
