When Beth Britton of Raritan Township began volunteering for Rogers' Rescues, an all-breed dog rescue group based in the county, her family was relieved. "Thank goodness you finally realized you can't rescue all the dogs in the world yourself," said her mother-in-law, Judy Britton, also of the township. Since 2006, she's played canine matchmaker, helping dogs in need find forever homes with area families seeking a new best friend. Read the whole story here.
Our 1000th Adoption
Goldie, the Corgi mix who was once a stray in rural Kentucky, was adopted by Jonathan and Kimberly Lutz on February 16, 2008, making her the 1000th dog adopted from Rogers’ Rescues and the second one the couple has adopted from us.
To celebrate Goldie’s place in the rescue's history, the Lutz family received a gift basket packed with toys, treats, and a cozy dog bed. Goldie also received two bowls personalized with “Rogers’ Rescues 1000th Dog”. Jonathan and Kimberly each received “My Dog Is One In A Thousand” t-shirts. “We are honored that we were chosen to be Goldie’s forever family,” says Jonathan Lutz. “The fact that she has this place in the rescue’s history, and that she now lives with another dog adopted from Rogers’ Rescues, makes it all the sweeter.”
Goldie’s new routine is quite different from the life she was living just a few months ago. Goldie was a stray taken to a shelter in Leitchfield, Kentucky in July, 2007. At that time, she was suffering from Mange, a skin infection that requires intensive and consistent treatment. Hers was one of the worst cases the shelter had ever seen and after it cleared up in October, it recurred and she had to begin treatments all over again.
“Goldie lived at the shelter from July through December,” remembers Jen Peters, Goldie’s foster mom. “She became such a favorite with the shelter people, when her day came to travel North into the care of Rogers’ Rescues, everyone at the shelter stopped by to say good-bye.”
