“I hope you all are doing well. I had no trouble at all getting Sticky house broken. She has not used a pad in 5 days. She is very smart. She listens to me and stays with me. I took her to the farm Thursday and Friday working on the garden and she and Weasel played around garden the whole time. Sticky and Weasel got in a playing fit on bed this morning barking and growling. I wish I could have recorded it, it was hilarious! First time I ever heard Sticky bark.”

“Hi from Lucy Thornburg, formerly known as Monet from the artist puppy litter! Today we are celebrating Lucy’s first birthday! She is doing great! She went camping for the first time last weekend and she completed her first 5 mile hike. We are forever grateful that we were chosen to adopt her!”

~ Janet

“We adopted Penny (formerly Brave) a week ago and she has made herself right at home with our 12 year old Lab, 10 year old cat and 4 year old son. She is smart, inquisitive, and has been a complete joy.

The adoption process was easy, and we are so thankful to have found Pet Partners Rescue! Thank you all for this sweet and amazing little one!

~ Sharon

“We lost one of our little pomeranians last October due to kidney failure. Since then, there has just been an empty spot in our hearts. We want to thank Pet Partners of Caldwell County NC for allowing us to adopt “Miko,” aka Baryshnikov (Misha). He is the perfect fit for our family. He is such a loving little dog. We are grateful and blessed, and we can’t thank you, Pet Partners, enough!”

~ Eric & Vicki Masters

“It has been over a year since we walked into one of your events at Tractor Supply and walked out with a wonderful new four legged member of our family. (We named her Sophie but you probably know her as “Hershey” from the candy bar bunch). I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the opportunity to have her in our lives and to let you know what Sophie has been up to since then.

It seems hard to believe the little pup we got who weighed less than 6 pounds when we got her has grown so much. She’s now a healthy 35 pounds and along with her increase in size, her personality has grown too. She’s our little diva and can often be found sashaying around the house like she owns the place (her furryball Uncle Charlie would much disagree with her claim, but he’s slowly accepting the fact that he has a co-ruler). Her strong-will personality and her zeal for living life to its fullest always has us on our toes. She adds humor to each day and there is nothing quite like the feeling of seeing her snout and paws peeking up at the door window when she realizes someone’s home. She’s certainly dug out a place for herself in each of our hearts.

A couple weeks before her “gotcha” or adoption date, we celebrated her first birthday. There were plenty of treats and toys for her to play with. I would love to attach a picture of her with her birthday bandana on, chowing on her birthday cake. Unfortunately, she was so excited by all that was going on, she didn’t exactly sit still long enough to get a decent picture. I did, however, get a picture of Sophie with her “gotcha” day cupcake and bandana. (and don’t worry. She only gets sweet treats like cupcakes on very special occasions and she had to share with her “Mommy” and “Uncle” Charlie.)

All this to say, THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! We were and are so blessed by your trust in us to adopt our beautiful Sophie girl. And while she still has a great deal to learn, we’re grateful to have her. We hope to keep her for as many years as the good Lord allows her on this earth. Thank you again, so much, Pet Partners! Please keep up the good work in finding wonderful homes for the homeless pets of Caldwell County.

Stay safe and God bless!

“Just wanted to update you on Stella. She is firmly embedded (literally) in our small family and we are delighted to have her. She has proved to be the smartest dog we’ve ever had, and so affectionate & good with people & dogs. She has been a great companion and comfort to my husband, whose Parkinson’s Disease is progressing.

We are taking her with us to NY [for the holidays] to visit my kids (3) + a dog and a cat. Should be fun!

Attached is a pic of her with our friend’s 2 King Cavaliers – they had so much fun playing over the weekend! Too bad they live in FL!

Anyway, thank you for rescuing her & we wish you, your colleagues & family a Blessed Christmas & Happy New Year.”

~ Penny


“We adopted Jasper back in September. We changed his name to Samson. We had a rescued cat previously that was lost. His name had been Jasper.

Samson is doing great. He has had all of his shots for now. He weighs 33 lbs so far and still going strong. I have him enrolled in puppy preschool. He’s smart and picking up things quickly. On Veteran’s Day we went on a mile long hike and he was amazing. I take him to one of daughter’s softball games and all the kids love him.

We’re grateful for all that your organization did to help make it possible for Samson to be part of our family.”

“I adopted Zoë (Gamora) almost a year ago and she was such a shy girl! Now she has come out of her comfort zone and loves to go out. And of course hang out with her feline best friend!”

“We adopted Quartz now known as Zion on 9/7/19. He is doing wonderful and keeping us on our toes. He is very curious, smart and energetic. It’s only been a week but he’s totally a part of the family.”
~ Linda


“What a wonderful addition Ellie; now called Nala, has been to our family. She is doing great and is living the good life.”
~ Penny

“Jake’s a sweet, gentle, and loving dog that only wants to cuddle and wrestle with everyone he meets including his two cat brothers Diggs and Todd. He wouldn’t be where he is today without the love that you [and his rescuer] showed him three years ago and my family will forever be one big happy dog larger because you did.”
~ Cody and Kayla

“Hope you are well! Just wanted to give you a report on Buddy. He is doing so well and we are totally in love with him. We now have an electric fence which keeps Buddy safe in the yard where he can roam all he wants. He quickly acclimated to it. Here is a picture of him in our yard as we are decorating for a block party. Here is a picture of us hiking at South Mountain. Thanks for bringing Buddy to us. He really is a wonderful addition to our family!” ~ B. L. Fuller


“Just had to send this photo of ‘Billie’ enjoying a sunny afternoon in her new home. She settled in nicely within hours…She is a God-send…We have a large deck on the back of our house with bird feeders and she just loves to spend some of her time there watching the birds, hummers, and squirrels that come…We are grateful to people like you who bring these wonderful pets out in the ‘public eye’ for people like us to find.”  ~ C. & L. Gillette


“As I promised, here is Nick and Carmel, who Nick now calls “Chester.”  They are two peas in a pod. We could not be happier with him. He has been a great addition to our family!” ~ L. William


“We have decided to call Moon “Handsome” he is so beautiful…He is a delight and into EVERYTHING and I mean everything. He likes being in our lap for a one minute rest and then off to investigate some more…He has discovered he can jump up on window sills and look out of the open window.  Thanks again. We love him.” ~ J. Cameron


“Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know that Pixie seems to be adjusting really well, as are we.  She is just wonderful…We absolutely love her.  You are doing such amazing work…Thanks so much!  I’m sure you don’t hear that enough.  It’s people like you that make the world a nicer place to live and a voice to be heard for the animals.” ~ J. Corley


“I just want you to know that Marco is doing GREAT!! He and I are best pals. I firmly believe that God put us together – I was really sad, depressed and lonely when I lost my cat Nicholas, and Marcos desperately wanted a daddy. You were the vehicle that made that a reality.  God bless you both. God is working through you both, I just know it.” ~ Eric


“I adopted Piper from you folks on July 31 of last year. One of the best things I’ve done in recent memory. Here she is swimming in the Clinch River during a recent expedition we took to Tennessee. It’s a dog’s life…” ~ R. Robinson
