Vita

I am adopted!

Hi there, Just wanted to update you on Vita now that she’s been living with us for a month. She is the sweetest, most gentle girl, so filled with love. She is super smart – less than three days and she was trained to ring a bell to go outside. She loves snuggling on the couch, going for rides and playing fetch – we still have some work to do on getting her to bring the ball back, but that’s kind of expected. She is the belle of the ball when we take her to visit her “grandma” in the nursing home. Nearly everyone there is in love with her. It’s been a while since either of us had a dog that barks at things, but rest assured, we are safe from wood piles that move because we are plowing snow and garbage bags that are placed outside with out her knowledge. And our yard has been pretty much cleared of deer every day since Vita found her voice. She loves that they will run from her barking and sometimes just goes outside to see if there is anything that will run when she sits up on the deck and lets them have it. Thank you so much for being there for the dogs that you rescue. Vita is our second dog through WHARF, and maybe it’s just luck, but we have found two of the sweetest girls ever through you. We lost Penny (Henny in 2011) in June of 2017, but she was and is missed by a lot of family members too. Jennifer and Brent

Talia

I am adopted!

Dear Wharf, We adopted Sasha (formerly Talia) a few weeks ago and she’s been a complete angel. We renamed her after Beyoncé’s alter ego “Sasha Fierce” as she’s not only a queen in our eyes, but also fierce as she was found as a stray but still so confident and loving. We love her so much and she’s settled into our home so nicely. She especially loves her trips to the dog park. She loves making new friends. It’s been great getting to know her personality. She’s the perfect mix of mellow, loving, and goofy. Here are some pictures of Sasha. Thank you so much for considering us for her adoption. She completes our little family. Sincerely, Elizabeth and Clayton

Fiona

I am adopted!

Hi Sorry for not getting back to you sooner she is doing really well she pretty much owns the house. She is the boss over 2 dogs and 18 chickens as well as 5 humans. She has grown into a very beautiful spoiled little girl. Thank you for doing what you do if ever there comes a time when we would like to adopt again we will be in contact with you. Thanks Margo & Fiona 🙂

 

 

Cindy

I am adopted!

Cindy (now ‘Java’) is doing awesome 🙂 She’s the biggest suck in the world and would do just about anything for a cuddle (including hang around our toddler). She’s amazing with our son and they’ve become good buddies already. Java always follows us into Isaac’s room in the morning when we go to let him out of his crib. Isaac’s first words are often “Cuddle Java” because he’s so crazy about her. We are constantly needing to tell him to be nice to her because she’s so patient she’ll just let him pull her fur or follow her around trying to cuddle her (which looks more like a ‘head-lock’ somedays). We love that she’s so calm and patient with our high-energy chihuahua, Otto. It took a few days for them to make peace, but now we’ve started catching them playing together! Otto is crated when we are out and Java is allowed to stay loose but it’s so cute to see their excitement when I let them out together when we get home. Java has given us a few scares with taking off on us, but is becoming more reliable at responding to her name and we’ve successfully had her off-leash on a few walks. She is not without her quirks, however… For the first bit she dutifully buried every toy or treat she got and has developed a nasty habit of jumping up on the kitchen table to finish any food left there when nobody is in the room. While this has been aggravating for us at times, Java responds really well to corrections so we are hopeful that she’ll figure out this isn’t cool pretty quickly. Otherwise, she is the world’s best dog and we are so happy with our decision to adopt! Thank you for all of your help! Sincerely, The Pruski family

Emma

I am adopted!

Emma is now known as Lily, as our Dogs name is Emma and we thought it would be a bit confusing. Lily and our Dog are best of friends, they even sleep together, not often is one found without the other. Lily is most unusual about the places she finds to sleep, and often sets my three year old into a fit of laughter. Her most memorable place was in the elevator of the fisher price toy garage, as I panic that she has somehow got herself stuck call in my husband to help, she calmly wakes up gets herself out and walks away. She chases toys cars, and bats them back to my boys, and my one year old has even taken to meowing every time she comes near. She is a cute, curious, cuddly cat, who brings lots of joy into our house, and I am very grateful you help bring her into our lives. Awesome organization!

Becky

I am adopted! 2009

Hi Tessa, I’m sorry I took so darn long to ever email you regarding “Becky’s” adoption. We got her from you in July of 2009 and absolutely love her to pieces. We renamed her Pebbles and she’s as spunky as ever. Thank you again for taking such good care of her, we love her with all of our heart. We might be looking at adopting another kitten so she can have a friend (we kick ourselves for not adopting two in the first place!) in the spring or next fall. I’ll keep my eyes peeled on you Wharf’s adoption page J Leanne Lamane
