Best Friends!

 While Mom has been very busy this Christmas, it is a good thing for some animals. Mommy sponsors Best Friends animal society from her sales on Etsy.
Here are the first two which will benefit from Moms sales this Christmas.




Before coming to Best Friends, Dakota lived in Michigan with 98 other dogs. 98!
One person, too many dogs, not enough food or shelter to go around. It's no wonder Dakota suffered from a little anxiety.
But he's getting better and more trusting every day. Dakota is quite playful, despite hip dysplasia. He really is happy doing anything, as long as it involves people --- long walks, car rides and, once he gets to know you, snuggling are his all-time favorite activities.
Dakota still has a few guarding issues with food and toys --- he just doesn't quite trust that there will be enough for him! But all that will change in time. All Dakota needs is a loving, patient adult home. He's so playful and cuddly! And despite his hip troubles, he was born in just 2002.



Big Snow would use the litter box if he could! But he can't. He was stepped on by a horse, and can never be a continent cat again. What's worse, his family tossed him out for it. But now he's at Best Friends, where there's a special room for cats with his problem. It's called the Incontinental Suite, and Big Snow loves it there so much that he's appointed himself "head comforter". When new cats arrive, sad and lonely because they too have lost their homes to incontinence, Big Snow is always the first to snuggle up to them. He still has a slightly twisted paw from the horse accident, but that doesn't stop him from inviting the newcomers to play!
Won't you help support a cat like Big Snow to live out a long, sociable life here at the sanctuary?
