Allie came to The Pet Cottage through our partnership with Furry Friends. Pat Deshong President of Furry Friends and Wendy Derhak Founder of The Pet Cottage have aligned their missions to assist each other when appropriate. Our foster pack uses Furry Friends Animal Clinic for all of our Veterinarian needs. The sanctuary rate they give us allows us to serve more pets. We love Dr. Vinoski and all the staff at the clinic.


Bridget from Furry Friends called The Pet Cottage when 12-year-old Allie came to their adoption center after her human passed away. She fit our mission and they knew TPC could help.


It took a couple of weeks but we found the perfect home for Allie. Ann called TPC explaining that she and her son had recently lost their dog and were missing their companion. At the time we had a couple of dogs we were trying to find foster homes for but they had their heart set on Allie. And they had their heart set on going through The Pet Cottage because of the on-going hand-holding and support we offer for the rest of the pets life.


It was a Friday when we did a home visit to meet Ann and her son Taylor. They are great people and we immediately brought Allie to her new home. She walked in and you could see the thoughts in her face, "All right, this is my new home," and she jumped right up on the couch. 


They are completely in love with her and it's the perfect fit. A story tail ending because of The Pet Cottage and Furry Friends working together for the pets and people in our community.




When a foster family becomes a part of our pack we take care of the monthly preventative medicine and all medical bills. If you're interested in helping us continue helping pets like Allie please consider donating to our general fund, join Happy Tails monthly donation program for as little as $5/month, or Virtually Adopt one of our pets!
