Let’s skip over all the I-know-we-haven’t-posted-in-awhile-we’ve-been-so-busy-but-we’re-still-here stuff, and just jump right in, shall we?
Update: Operation Freedom Dogs
After 21 days at the emergency shelter, all 200+ rescued animals – including dogs, cats, turtles, chickens, geese, fish, a goat & a donkey – have been placed with rescue partners in loving foster homes. All of them will continue on their road to physical and mental rehabilitation, and hopefully will be available for adoption soon. A list of Animal Rescue Corps’ placement partners can be found here:
Agape Animal Rescue (Nashville, TN)
Snooty Giggles Dog Rescue (Thompsons Station, TN)
Central Kentucky Regional Humane Society (Lancaster, KY)
Northwoods Humane Society (Haywood, WI)
Country K9 Rescue (Lebanon, TN)
Nashville Cat Rescue (Nashville, TN)
New Leash on Life (Lebanon, TN)
Noah’s Ark Society (Nashville, TN)
The number of people who came together to make this rescue possible is truly amazing – of course the staff of ARC, countless volunteers who gave their time and energy for three weeks, local restaurants who provided lunch each day, veterinarians who volunteered their services, local community members who donated supplies, photographers who spent hours at the shelter capturing touching images, the media for covering the story and bringing attention to the operation, and of course the rescue organizations who stepped up as placement partners and the foster families who will see these animals through to adoption. It’s been an overwhelming, emotional experience, and I am truly humbled to have been a part of it. It’s been a privilege working with each and every one of you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
Auction for the Dogs
On the heels of Operation Freedom Dogs, Brentwood Jewelry & Gifts (Nashville, TN) donated this bee-you-tee-full ring to Animal Rescue Corps.

The appraised value is $6,800.00.
Room for One More?
Agape has taken just one more pup from Operation Freedom into their foster program. Because how can anyone resist that face? Meet Prince!
Is he a doll face or what? I know I said this about every single dog at the emergency shelter at one point or another, but Prince is seriously one of my favorites. So happy to have him in the Agape family!
Recap: Glitter & Glam
Nope, nevermind…I’ve got too many awesome pictures to share, G&G 2012 deserves its own post. Here’s a preview:
My sister got a new kitten. His name is Preekaroo (I don’t know, you’ll have to ask her).
I mean, I am not a cat person, but come ON…no one can deny that kittens are damn cute.
Still adorable, still adoptable. Still waiting on his Furever Family to find him. Is it you?
