FETCH Feature: Rockford (a Pen Pals alum)
At FETCH a Cure, we encounter quite a few dogs and cats. Through our Companions in Crisis (CIC) and Pixie’s Pen Pals programs, we have helped hundreds of animals. What many people don’t think about, however, is that when an animal becomes a CIC Recipient or a Pen Pals participant, they become part of the FETCH a Cure family. That doesn’t end when they leave our programs. We have built a community in which families stay connected with us long after their original participation. We love seeing pictures of their new lives and keeping up with how they are doing, and we want to share that with everyone. So, we will be posting weekly FETCH Features about our animals. These will include Pen Pals dog alumni, past CIC recipients, and dogs that are currently up for adoption through the Pen Pals program.
Meet Rockford, a Pen Pals alum!
This past Saturday, we hosted a trivia night at Blue Bee Cider‘s Dog Days of Summer event. Lots of humans and dogs came out to participate and try to win prizes. Among the participants was a familiar face: Rockford.
Rockford was in our Pen Pals program in 2018, and was adopted in May 2018. Coincidentally, the adoption event actually happened at Blue Bee Cider! He and his owners were all smiles throughout trivia, despite the heat. We bet he was helpful during the “All About Dogs” category, especially when the question, “How long is the training program for Pixie’s Pen Pals?” came up!
Thanks to Blue Bee Cider for being an awesome community partner!
