Puptails by Pals for Paws | Samantha, now Gracie Samantha, now Gracie - Heather Norris Hudson

We adopted our spoiled fur baby from your rescue five yrs ago this month. She came from a group you rescued from an Amish mill in southern Indiana. Her name was Samantha, she is now Gracie. She is quite the character, but the apple of her mama's eye. Thank you for rescuing her and the others.

Amazing new addition!

Puptails by Pals for Paws | Penny aka Peanut Butter Penny aka Peanut Butter - The Hoppes family

I just wanted to send an update on Penny aka Peanut Butter. We adopted her at Petco in Carmel in mid-November. She is such an amazing addition to our family. We can't thank you enough. She is almost fully trained and loving taking long walks or roaming the back yard with our son. She is also a snuggle bug who enjoys watching soccer with my husband. Thank you! We recommend adopting from your organization to everyone!

Scarlett's Vacation

Puptails by Pals for Paws | Scarlett Scarlett - David & Vicki

Hey Mary,

Here are a few pictures of Scarlett. Last year we took her on vacation with us to a
working Lama Farm in Tennessee. She loved chatting with the Lamas, horses and donkeys

She has been a Blessing to us and loves everyone she comes in contact with. She is doing great
and has not had any recurrence of ring worms. She loves riding in our truck most times she does not want to get out of the truck when we are home. She wants to keep riding.

Thanks for allowing us to adopt her.

Update on Lucky

Up-date on Lucky ~

Lucky's first night at home. When it was Jordan's bedtime, Lucky immediately claimed in the bed but he was happy enough sleeping on Jordan's sweatshirt and watching over his new boy.

Update on Watson

Puptails by Pals for Paws | Watson Watson - Amanda

Up-date on Watson~

Hello! We just adopted Watson at the petco adoption event on Sat. March 1. First of all, we love him so much already and he is adjusting well. He is so smart and picking up potty training quickly, even in the snow! He has also already mastered his name, come, and sit! He is learning stay, as well....so smart!

I did forget to ask on adoption day if anyone was aware of their exact birthdate, or if they had an estimated date. We would just like to know to pass the info on to our vet (and to have a reason to spoil him a little extra one day). Also, I don't remember anyone saying whether or not they had been dewormed?

Thank you so much for all that you do for these sweet animals. I wish we had more space so we could adopt more or foster. Maybe some day.We will keep you updated on how he is doing!

Mona (now Darcy)

Puptails by Pals for Paws | Darcy Darcy - Steve

Up-date on Mona ~ now Darcy


Thank you for writing. Darcy now knows her name.

She had an x-ray of her leg and the bone above her knee was broken and healed at a 90 degree angle to what it should be. This caused a deterioration of her knee cap. We are trying her on Rimadyl which seems to help, but we will stop it and see if she hops more.

Yesterday was the first time she and Harry tore through the house and chased each other down the stairs. They were playing upstairs on the bed, ran down stairs and around the coffee table about five times. They were both exhausted.

She now sleeps in bed with us and stays there all night long. She never has even had an accident in the house. She still has that iron bladder. I get excited when she goes tinkle in two hours. She usually only goes three times a day - 6am, 2 pm, 10pm.

I attached a picture - I think she feels at home. Please let me know whether you get the picture.

We all love her and she has gained about a pound. I just can't let her get fat with her bad leg. What a change there has been in her confidence. I think she loves being here!


A Happy Pig's Tale

Puptails by Pals for Paws | "Wilbur" aka "Fatty" - Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary,Inc.

"Wilbur" was living in horrible conditions, outside with freezing temperatures and just a tarp cover.

"Wilbur" AKA Fatty found a home at Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary, Inc.. We can not thank our volunteers, followers and supporters for ALL of your hard work. Thank you to for those who went out in the sub zero temperatures and snow to rescue him, the foster parents who took care of him, the transport team who drove 11 hours round trip to make sure Wilber and Happy Trails Farm and Animal Sanctuary, Inc. for giving him a FOREVER HOME! Here's an important fact....a mature pig will be approximately 13-20 inches tall, with an average weight being 130-150 pounds, but can range in size from 90–175. Overeating and overfeeding can lead to obesity in your pig, resulting in a weight well over 200 pounds. A properly maintained piggy can be a great and joyful addition to a family.

Smart Boy Skip!

Puptails by Pals for Paws | Skip Skip - Sandy Moss

When I adopted Boyd (now Skip) in 2012, I had no idea what a treasure I was bringing home. He's a border collie/ aussie mix and doesn't miss a trick. He goes to agility, has his own treadmill, loves long walks with his backpack and loves life to the fullest! He continues to make me laugh every day with his antics.
