After spending years in a shelter: Roxie and Tweedledum find forever homes days later at Ruff Start Rescue

Ruff Start Rescue has partnerships with other animal welfare organizations across the nation. We are here to assist those that need us most when companion animals are at-risk. In this case, Roxie and Tweedledum couldn’t find their forever families after spending almost three years in a shelter. The organization reached out to us to see if we could give Roxie and Tweedledum a second chance, and we said YES!

Six days later, Roxie was adopted.

Roxie’s adopter said, “Roxie is doing fabulous and is a wonderful addition to my home. I can’t imagine my life without her.”

While Roxie acclimated to her new home, Tweedledum found his forever family two weeks after entering the Rescue.

Roxie is a little camera shy.

Roxie loves all of the spots she can lounge on in her new home.

Here’s how he is doing:

“Tweedledum has been a wonderful addition to our family. He’s sweet, funny, and patient with the kids. He’s a social guy and has really been coming out of his shell as he’s adapted to having his own home to romp around. Quite a talker, he’s picked up the nickname “Mr. Meow-gi” (a play on Mr. Miyagi from karate kid) as he meows and chirps his way around the house. Our kids love playing with him and he loves having them bring his toys to life. At night he’s taken to snoozing in bed with us grown-ups. It’s only been two weeks, but it already feels like he’s been a part of our family forever. He’s definitely been a great fit from our perspective and he seems to agree.”

Tweedledum takes advantage of the many relaxing places to nap in his new home.

Tweedledum loves playing with his human brother.

When Tweedledum’s not playing, you can find him lounging by a window.

We are so grateful we could take Roxie and Tweedledum in and help them find families so quickly. We can say YES to animals like them thanks to generous supporters like you! If it’s within your means, please donate so we can continue this life-saving work.
