Sizzle and her new "mom"
The St. Louis Senior Dog Project is a not-for-profit dog rescue organization specializing in older dogs but taking in and finding homes for dogs of all ages...even puppies. Meet and adopt a REd Ribbon dog 11 to 3 Saturday and Sunday, February 25 and 26 at the Kirkwood Petco near I-44 and Lindbergh. Red Ribbon dogs will be adopted at no fee for senior citizens and only $25 to all others thanks to two grand programs. This is the last weekend for this program. In addition, we will have younger dogs at the St. Louis/Affton Petco from 11 to 3 Saturday. To see which dogs will be where as well as other adoptable dogs, go Here. The Red Ribbon dogs will be placed at no fee to senior citizens (60 plus) thanks to a grant from the Purina Pets for Seniors program. This Dixie Fund will cover all but $25 of the fee for adults of any age.
Yes, we had some adoptions this weekend, and several were thanks to our two programs helping us place dogs -- especially seniors -- in good homes. That's Sizzle up there. She's been waiting for the right home since the sizzling summer day that I took her out of Jefferson County Animal Control. Now it looks like she's found it.
Others finding homes through either the Purina Pets for Seniors program or our own Dixie Fund were Dolly the lab mix and Chessie the poodle mix.
Then we had several regular fee adopts, including Annette the beagle mix, pictured below with her new best pal.
Meanwile, we are gearing up for next weekend -- our Red Ribbon Weekend at the Kirkwood Petco. Every dog there will be eligible for either the Purina Pets for Seniors Program (which means Purina will pay the adoption fee for senior citizens adopting one of the dogs) or the Dixie Fund (which means the adoption fee will be only $25 for people of any age adopting a senior dog or one that has been hard to place.
Spread the word.
