These are only two of the myriad at Lost Our Home pet rescue.
"Hi, my name is Scooby. I was brought to Lost Our Home Pet Rescue in November of 2020. I had a bit of a bumpy path because I was exposed to Parvo before entering the shelter. Since Parvo is very contagious, I was put on a medical hold for what seemed like forever. This made me sad because I didn't meet new people or hang out with other doggies for 30 days! Then I got tested, and everyone seemed very happy with the results...I must have aced it! They said it was "negative".
I could finally hang out with other pooches and humans!! I really LOVED the days I played in the shelter's front office. Not only did I receive a ton of attention and treats, but it was how I met the humans that took special notice of me. She had a small human girl with her, and they were so nice! They hugged me and played tug of war with me before they became my foster family. We got along right away. They liked me so much that they became my foster family that day. The second I ran around their yard, it was clear to me that this was where I belonged. We got along so well that I was officially adopted and settled into my forever home within a week!
Recently, I sent the nice folks at Lost Our Home a note while on vacation in Washington state to let them know all about how I now am living my best life with my forever family."
Acorn, Miracle Puppy
"My name is Acorn. I was born in a foster home along with my five siblings. Within just a few days of being born, I got sick, and so did all my siblings. One of my sisters was especially ill, and she passed away the next day. We were all scared and didn't know why we were sick. I wasn't very hungry, and I was always tired. My siblings and I were coughing, and it was hard to breathe at times.
We were taken from our foster home and brought back to the shelter, where we were put in a room. Every day the staff and the vet came to take care of us and to examine us. One day I overheard the humans say we were diagnosed with distemper. They continued to say how distemper is a highly contagious viral disease that can be passed from one pup to another through sneezing and coughing, and it is often fatal.
The humans said we had to be kept separate from all the other doggies at the shelter; I was happy I still got to be around my siblings. Then the unthinkable happened. One by one, all my siblings got worse, completely stopped eating, and passed away. I was so sad, sick, and lonely.
For the next few months of my life, I only saw the medical staff. Despite everything I went through, I was not about to give up, and the humans at Lost Our Home were cheering me on. We all had a feeling there was something better in store for me. My will to live, combined with the great care I received, kept me alive.
Recently, I tested negative for Distemper and started to enjoy life with my foster family again. They gave me lots of snuggles and tons of attention. Now that I am eating again, they are giving me lots of yummy treats too! My foster family fell so in love with me that they adopted me this week, so now I have a whole lifetime ahead with my forever family!"
