A Cat, a Dog and a Rabbit Have Lots to Be Grateful For This Thanksgiving

By Hope Bidegainberry on November 22, 2019

Just in time for the start of the holiday season, three shelter animals that had been waiting for a long time at the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA (PHS/SPCA) to be adopted finally found their new forever homes.

The recent adoptions of three of our long-time shelter animals is the perfect start to the holiday season, said PHS/SPCA Communications Manager Buffy Martin Tarbox.  It is so heartwarming to know these animals will be not only enjoying the holidays with their new families, but are now in loving homes where they will want for nothing.

The three animals include a three year old spayed female cat named Stormy who had been at PHS/SPCA for 592 days, an 11 year old spayed female Pit Bull mix named Betty who waited eleven months to be adopted and an adult neutered male rabbit named Samuel who waited 564 days at the shelter until he was adopted.

We are so delighted Stormy, Betty and Samuel have been adopted after such a long time waiting at our shelter, said PHS/SPCA Communications Manager Buffy Martin Tarbox. Since 2003, we have stuck by our promise to never euthanize a healthy dog or cat and work to find each of them a new home, according to Tarbox. All three of these animals had been lovingly cared for by our first-rate staff and volunteers. The care of all of the animals at our shelter is a team effort, and we believe the animals, and especially Stormy, Betty and Samuel are extremely grateful to have had a safe place where they received the attention and care they needed as they waited to be adopted.

All three of the animals will be living with their new families in the San Francisco Bay Area.

PHS/SPCA is an open-door shelter that accepts all animals, regardless of age, breed or size and since 2003 has been successful in finding homes for 100% of the healthy cats and dogs in their care.  PHS/SPCA saves the lives of more than 6,000 animals each year and through their donor funded Hope Program, they provide life-saving medical and behavior treatment for more than 150 animals each month.
