One thing I have learned over the years working in a shelter is there are many highs and lows when you least expect it. Some of those highs are finding the right person for a particular dog or cat. Although we are always happy to see our fur babies find a home, they still take a piece of our hearts when they leave. One such adoption was Bridget, who had been at the shelter for 9 years and our most resent miracle is Nibbles a DSH tabby cat. She came to us as a 5 months old kitten already displaying an attitude! It did not take us long to figure out why she was named Nibbles. She had a tendency to bite when whenever she felt like it.
Over the years she picked a few people she would tolerate in her world but always on her terms. Although, we had made her the featured cat on our website and sent a plea out on Facebook asking someone to give her a chance, she remained at the shelter. It wasn’t until our cat care giver put a plea out on her Facebook page that we saw some interest. An angel saw the posting and called about Nibbles. She drove all the way from Owensboro to visit her because she believes in helping cats with issues.
Needless to say a happy ending for nibbles was finally found after 10 years. We are so ecstatic for Nibbles and grateful to the angel who gave nibbles a second chance.
Some goodbyes are also bittersweet. Our Fundraising and Event Coordinator Virginia Lindsey decided to leave ACS on April 21st to prepare for the birth of her daughter. She was a great asset and will be missed. We wish her well with her new adventure, motherhood.
As the saying goes when one door closes another door opens and so we welcome back Kelly who worked with us in the 90’s. She is one of our adoption Counselors. Thanks for joining the ACS family.
As always, many thanks to you the members, Board Members, volunteers and donors for all you do to help Animal Care Society.
