Awesome adoptions in 2017

2017 was a great year for adoptions at the Burbank Animal Shelter.  940 animals were adopted, and another 388 wayward dogs and cats were reunited with their owners.

We’re overjoyed every time an animal finds a home, but some adoptions last year were extra special.  This is the story of seven long term residents who (finally!) found their forever homes in 2017.

Beautiful 9 year old Gwen, found her home in March.  Gwen was a staff and volunteer favorite in the shelter and then moved on to being an inaugural member of the Adult Dog Foster Program. More than two years after entering the shelter Gwen has a house with a yard to call her own! 

Magnificent Midnight learned that humans weren’t so bad after all and graduated from our Cat Socialization Program.  He also found his home in March, two weeks shy of his one year anniversary.  

There’s a saying about April Showers, but for months Ezra and her sun hat didn’t get the notice.  Finally April was all sunshine and rainbows for Ezra as she found her forever home!

In June, Lovely Layla met some wonderful adopters and it was love at first sight.  Layla started her summer the right way: in a new home!

November was a double treat when Maggie and Captain Kirk went to their awesome new home together!  Thanks to the tireless work of our Socialization Team, Kirk learned he didn’t have to run every time a door opened and Maggie came out of her shell and learned that humans are really OK.  These two met in our Socialization program and brought out the best in each other.  We were so happy they were adopted together!

Everyone got a great Christmas present in December when Ace and Artie were adopted!  This bonded pair of brothers were with us almost two years, but found their forever home for the holidays.  Just like Gwen, Artie and Ace have the Adult Dog Foster Program to thank for finding them their new homes. 

All of our long term residents had something in common:  They never gave up.  And we never gave up on them. 

Thanks to supporters like you, we were able to give them the attention, the medical care, and most importantly, the time they needed to find their forever homes.  None of this would have been possible without your support.  Thank you for helping save them, and for continuing to help us save lives in 2018.
