Active Rain - Cutest Pet Contest - Here is YooHoo!

By
Real Estate Agent with Diane Turton, Realtors, Forked River, NJ

I read Mirela Monte's post of the  Cutest Pet Contest  which was started by Peter Olsen's thoughts of having a  Cutest Dog Contest

Not quite sure of the rules, but here is my entry, of which I also added to Mirela and Peter's posts.

Introducing YooHoo

 Toula Rosebrock YooHoo

Anyone who knows me, knows that I rescue dogs and cats and find them permanent homes. 

YooHoo, (named because of her obvious chocolate coloring) with 4 siblings, were rescued in Staten Island, where their mother was put down due to the over-crowded shelters.  We heard of what happened to the mother and that the litter was next on the list at the kill-shelter, so we immediately pulled them all.

YooHoo's photo on the left, is on our collection canisters.

We had taken her for a ride a few times in the boat, where she ran around like a puppy would.  So, I decided to put her in the fish storage cooler, which created this adorable photo of her that I called the "catch of the day"...

We very carefully screen potential adopters.  After about six-weeks of caring for YooHoo, a wonderful/permanent home was found.

We consider all the dogs & cats who come through our rescue/home, as our pets...even if it's only temporary.

When we rescue, we take them in, knowing that they may stay with us permanently!

Toula... That is wonderful that you were able to rescue YooHoo, adn the siblings.  Did you find home for all of them already?  Yes, there is a reason why.. my sons are looking for a dog.. and I'm weakening.  I'm not running and jumping into anything, I want to make sure whatever dog we get is a good fit.  So, if you can keep me in mind in the future I'd appreciate it.

I'm sure you are thinking that we should go to a shelter.  I tried that.. but my son wanted to take them all home, he didn't like the idea of them being put down.. and I don't want to put him through that again.  He wears his heart on his sleeve.

So, not that there is a rush.. but keep me in mind in the future.. I'd appreciate it.  No, I have no problem traveling to see a dog.

I've already rescue two dogs in my lifetime.. and that is the only way I will go from now on.

Did you know that Petfinder.com has a widget you can place on your blog and site with local animals in need of rescue.  I have it on my blog.  It's easy to set up and a great way to help our 4 legged friends.

Hi Valerie - I would suggest checking out Petfinder.com.  You'll see all the local pets that need to be rescued.  I'd love to see you, but NJ is a long way, I know!

Hi Jonathan -  I'm a rescue on Petfinder also.  I'm still kind of new to AR and am trying to figure out the widget stuff.  As soon as I figure it out, I'll add it here....Thank you for the suggestion!

YooHoo, that's my favorite chocolate energy drink!  What great photos and what a cute puppy (although, aren't they all).  Thanks for all you do for pets.

Hi Tara - Thanks.  I kept thinking of chocolate and came up with the name...

Hi Lyn - Thank you!

Hi Valerie - Hmmmm...don't know why you heard negativity.  Let's put it this way, Petfinder for rescues is the equivalent to Realtor.com to realtors.  How's that for keeping in the theme of AR!!!
