Tails of Hope dogs needing adoption

Just got this message from the foster coordinator for Tails of Hope, the animal rescue organization we volunteer with:

We have a number of dogs in rescue right now and will NOT be taking in any more until some of these are moved. Please talk to people that are considering adopting, friends, neighbors and relatives. Please help these kids, because until they are in homes, we cannot save any others:

Ryan...nothing wrong with him except he needs to play... a family dog with kids is perfect – he’s good family dog and needs training.

Katy – the little prima donna but cute and cuddly if she’s an only dog

Pumpkin – needs to be only dog...but loving, friendly, and walks nicely on lead, housebroken

Tiffany – had thousands wanting her before now, needs to be only dog.

Josef, Derek and Sparkles...we need to get these kids out of the kennel...they are shepherds and super dogs...

Pearl - this lovely sweet girl needs that special home... and she’s beautiful too!! [Jeri's note: Pearl is being fostered by a friend of mine, who says she's awesome]

Karma – her ONLY bad thing is she’s a black dog...otherwise, she’s perfect!!! And another great family dog. [Jeri's note: Black dogs have nothing wrong with them--it's just that for some reason people are less likely to adopt them (and black cats) than any other color. Seriously. I don't get it either.)

So if you live in Maryland, DC, south central PA, Delaware, northern VA, or West Virginia, and are looking to adopt or foster a dog, please consider one of these pups. For more information on the application process, visit Tails of Hope's adoption page.

Tails of Hope currently has 26 cats and 53 dogs for adoption. They are also always looking for new foster homes, other types of volunteers, animal sponsors (like Ciara in Wicked Game), and donations of all kinds.

And if you apply, tell 'em Jeri sent you!
