Hi! My name is Lilly (aka Lily Bear, Little Bear, and Cutie Pants), and I am ridiculously adorable, sweet, loving, and very smart!

Background

I was rescued from an overcrowded KY shelter when I was only 4 months old and have been here in foster care with CDR ever since. When I was first rescued by CDR, their nice vets found that I had a previously fractured pelvis (consistent with being kicked, hard) and one of my ears appears to have been ½-cut off with scissors. Clearly, my first few months of life were rough, but you’d never know it, as I am the happiest, sweetest, most adoring and adorable girl around!

Personality

I am a super friendly, happy, playful and affectionate girl! Everyone always …

Adopted: Paige

Hi! My name is Paige. I am adorable and loving!

Quick Fact Sheet:

  • Age: 3 years
  • Breed:Terrier mix (maybe Feist mix?)
  • Size:24 pounds, full grown!
  • Gender: Female, spayed

Very shy at first but wants attention and affection very much.
Traumatic back story: Was found stray and unable to be caught, so folks in KY set a live trap for her. It worked, but she was stuck in the trap, in frigid, freezing temperatures, for 12+ hours before someone checked. Must have been very scary and terribly cold for this little girl with very, very short fur.
Nervous with the small dogs in her foster home; did fine with the dogs with whom she was kenneled at the KY shelter.
Great with the 8 year old in her foster home
Not yet cat tested.
More info coming as we get to know her better!

Background:

I come all the way from KY, where I was originally in a high-kill, very crowded shelter, and it’s a pretty amazing thing that I am alive right now. The shelter needed to make some space, so called their veterinarian to come and put to sleep those of us who had been there for a little while, but when the vet met me, she just couldn’t do it. I was too sweet, she thought, and far too friendly. …
