Aarthi is a 9 week old kitten up to date on vaccinations and will be spayed prior to adoption. Aarthi wants you to know that while she is the smallest in the litter, big things sometimes come in tiny packages. Aarthi love adventure and a baby gate is no problem for her at all – she can go right over one. This little girl has the most beautiful tabby swirls and is wonderful with other cats and really enjoys dogs! No fear of canines here.
Many people picture cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens as friendly creatures who live happily within the confines of a peaceful family farm, arriving as food for humans only at the end of their sun-drenched lives. That’s what Gene Baur had been told — but when he first visited a stockyard he realized that this rosy depiction couldn’t be more inaccurate.
Amid the stench, noise, and filth, his attention was drawn in particular to one sheep who had been cast aside for dead. But as Baur walked by, the sheep raised her head and looked right at him. She was still alive, and the one thing Baur knew for sure that day was that he had to get her to safety. Hilda, as she was later named, was nursed back to health and soon became the first resident of Farm Sanctuary — an organization dedicated to the rescue, care, and protection of farm animals.
In Farm Sanctuary, Baur provides a thought-provoking investigation of the ethical questions involved in the production of beef, poultry, pork, milk,and eggs — and what each of us can do to stop the mistreatment of farm animals and promote compassion. He details the triumphs and the disappointments of more than twenty years on the front lines of the animal protection movement. And he introduces us to some of the special creatures who live at Farm Sanctuary — from Maya the cow to Marmalade the chicken — all of whom escaped horrible circumstances to live happier, more peaceful lives.

Our Angels Adoption Success Story this month comes to us from Susan Schulz,
who adopted “Murtagh” from Angels Rescue. Here’s their story.
My name is Susan and this is a picture of Milo (whose AAU name was Murtagh) on the one year anniversary of his adoption from Angels on August 11, 2012. He has brought so much love and joy to us – he is an amazing dog and a loyal friend. His full size now is 30 pounds of lean energy! His favorite thing to do is play fetch. I think he would do it all day long if one of us had the stamina to outlast him. He is a beautiful dog with a sweet and loving disposition. We feel so blessed to have found and adopted him, and made him a part of our family. Thanks again for allowing us to bring him into our family! I have had so many people ask me “what breed” he is, and stating they have been “looking for a dog just like him.” My answer is always: “He is 100% adopted love!”
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is grateful the Schulz family chose to “Adopt – Not Shop!” by adopting a rescued pet through our organization. We are so thankful Milo can now stand at his doorway, look back at his Angels family and say,
Our local animal shelter was having a special adoption fee of $10 for older cats who have been at the shelter for a year or longer. I’ve always liked tuxedo cats and her cage had said she was very friendly. She tolerates our one cat Lucifur who is not exactly the friendliest and gets along with our latest rescue cat Cleo. The only cat I’ve ever known to love having their belly rubbed. As you can see in the picture, all I have to do is say “Can I rub yer belly?” and she rolls right over!
I adopted a rescue dog named Mitzibelle. She was presumed to be nine or ten years old. Mitzi was abused, malnourished, had intestinal worms and tested positive for heart worm. She was examined by a veterinarian who said she would never survive heartworm treatment because she was so frail. After about 8 weeks, I could see that Mitzi was gaining weight and looking healthier. One evening, I stood over her and thought perhaps I should take her back to the vet because her tummy was starting to look bloated. My son commented that she was getting fat and my husband said jokingly, that perhaps she was pregnant. I thought about that, and remembered she was in heat when we adopted her. I put my hand on her tummy and sure enough, could feel puppies. I took her to the vet and it was confirmed she was pregnant with six puppies. The next evening, Mitzibelle went into labor. I stayed up with her all night delivering puppies. She had no teeth, so I had to help a lot. Mitzibelle was exhausted and got sick during the night. I took her to the ER and she was given fluids and anti-nausea medication. She did great after that. I was able to find good homes for all the puppies among family and friends, except for one female that I kept and named Kelsey. I had to make decisions about Mitzi’s health – I went ahead and treated her for heartworm. Now, four years later, Mitzibelle is healthy, energetic and loving life to the fullest. We take her and Kelsey to the dog park and go for long hikes through the woods. Mitzi and Kelsey love to be with each other and love their time at the park and cuddling with us.
On March 30, 2010 I saw his photo on an e-mail from Lexington Humane Society. He was swaddled in bandages from surgery to repair both back legs. He had been run over by a car and at 7 pounds, the car, well, won. Teddy’s eyes just spoke to me. I immediately grabbed the phone, called the shelter and told them he was mine.
Almost two months later we finally got to take Teddy home. He had been run over because children were throwing rocks at him and he ran into traffic. Thankfully, our shelter has a vet on staff and Dr. Liz did all she could but once he came to us, we had to fundamentally start over. He could only walk on his front legs and he was in tremendous pain. So, just as Dr. Liz decided to give it her best to save him, we decided to do our best to give him as good a future as he could have. More surgery to repair the damage to both hind legs, physical therapy, lots of antibiotics and a tremendous amount of love on our part and courage on his, today Teddy is happy, healthy and mobile to the point of a little TOO mobile. He is the light of my life and my husband’s and a great brother to his fur sister Sophie and his fur-kitty brother Roy.
This is Skitters. Guess why I named her that. I volunteered at my local shelter as a cat adoption counselor. In one cage I noticed one small lump inside a pillowcase. No matter how many times or who was trying to see her, she never came out. So one day I picked up the case and took it to a screened-in outdoor room. Well, she turned into a milkshake so back we went. I put a treat just outside the opening and watched. After about 10 mins, a small, orange paw came out and scooped in the treat. Did this several times, but she never came out. The next week, the same and the next and the next. I had three rescues at home and really didn’t want another, but I couldn’t leave her there. Home with me she came. Hid for weeks in my office with a litter box, kitty condo and water fountain. One day while eating, she let out a scream and dropped her food. Caught her, with GREAT difficulty, and off we went. Turned out she had severe stomatitis and was Bartonella positive. Had to have all her teeth removed and 3 laser surgeries. I was supposed to rub interferon on her ears for 180 days but I still couldn’t touch her easily. Needless to say that didn’t happen. So I waited to see what would happen. Nothing. Three years later she runs and jumps on my lap, lets me pick her up, most of the time, and gets along with my other rescue who was in the shelter for 2 years, cause she’s a bully. I puree all her food, crunch up treats, and get special freeze dried salmon for only her. The best decision, not counting the other 4 rescues I have, that I ever made. Shelter animals are the best to be owned by. I even have a feral cat from the shelter living in my house that I’ve never touched in 3 years, but couldn’t let her die. Hence the 5 cats that own me.
