We Were Rescued - A Puppy Letter For Operation Kindness

Seriously, did you see that?  We were this close to catching that squirrel this time...no, really!  Honest, what do you mean we may be too slow to catch squirrels, next you will say you wouldn't love to have a rescued "child" just like one of us!  We were lucky, our "parents" rescued us when we were only 12 weeks old and cute as buttons - they even knew that we were going to get big...really big...and they still adopted us!  If you have room in your heart and home, won't you consider visiting Operation Kindness today and adopting a dog or cat - they would love a "furever" home for the Holidays!

Sincerely,

Heidi and Heinreich  (Then and Now photos)

They are adorable and from what I have seen with our resuces and others they are very grateful.

Posted by Joe Pryor, REALTOR® - Oklahoma Investment Properties (The Virtual Real Estate Team) over 1 year ago

Thank you Joe Pryor these are just two of our five four-legged kids - and they are all wonderful!

Hi Lisa - Happy looking doggies, and a nice shout out for a great program. (Our guys learned a long time ago that they're too slow to catch anything with legs or wings - they don't even try anymore.)

Posted by Dick Greenberg, Northern Colorado Residential Real Estate (New Paradigm Partners LLC) over 1 year ago

All of mine still go running after anything that moves Dick Greenberg but only three of them are young enough to be a threat to the wildlife!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

Good afternoon Lisa. I remember when you adopted these two. We are absolutely on the same page today. I'm starting to think about a 5th now./

Sheila Anderson My friend, our hearts  are so alike!  And, go for it - then we'll have the same number of "kids"!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

How wonderful. We love to see these kind of adoption stories. This is a good reminder for folks thinking about adding a pet to the household. D

Thank you Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD all of our kids have always been rescues.  We rescue them, they rescue our hearts!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

We cannot do enough for the precious animals that are abandoned and/or abused. Adoption is the only way to go!

You know that I agree Kathleen Daniels I agree 110%!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

Oh, just LOOK at those faces, those expressions! How glorious to have landed in pup paradise! Dogs give us so much more than we can EVER reward them with, just by being themselves.

Thank you Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate as their mom, I am, of course, prejudiced...LOL

Dogs give unselfish love!

Good morning Lisa.

What do you think would happen if they caught that squirrel?  I see you have a new photo.  Nice, very nice, BTW they are a good looking pair.

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty AR LLC) over 1 year ago

I'm curious if you are recruiting Michael Phelps to join your office.

Posted by Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales) over 1 year ago

I shudder to think James Dray the squirrel would not fare well I am afraid.

And thank you - I met Michael at the NAR Conference and had to share the photo

How did you guess Gabe Sanders ?!! 

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

Good afternoon Lisa - how nice I have missed seeing pictures of your kids.

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) over 1 year ago

Hi Lisa... my heart is melting! I've kind of adopted another cat... it wanders my neighborhood... very pretty and friendly black cat. Shows up for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Now that it's colder at night it sleeps on a chair cushion on my front porch and I cover it with a blanket. (Can't let it in the house or my cat Oliver would have it for lunch or dinner; Oliver doesn't play so nicely with other cats while he does tolerate dogs.)

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) over 1 year ago

Hello Grant Schneider I realized that I have been remiss on posting photos of my "kids".  So happy that you like to see them!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

How sweet Nina Hollander I'd love to see a photo of Oliver and your new adopted cat!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

Lisa, so many of my friends have recue dogs, and with all of their quirks, they all seem so grateful!

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) over 1 year ago

Lisa, I've had four rescues in a row, and I wouldn't have it any other way. They seem to appreciate it so much. Love the new profile pic. 

Posted by Mike Cooper, GRI, Your Neighborhood Real Estate Sales Pro (Cornerstone Business Group Inc) over 1 year ago

They certainly are Patricia Kennedy they know what abandonment is and they love being loved!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

I agree Mike Cooper the rescue "kids" give so much unconditional love!  And, thank you, I couldn't resist sharing my photo with Michael Phelps!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

Good morning, Lisa... ask and ye shall receive. I actually have two "adopted" porch cats who come to eat at my home, but one is probably ferrel... she now lets me pet her but not much more and would run away if I tried to take her picture.

   My Oliver supervising me while I work.

 

 Black Kitty.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) over 1 year ago

Nina Hollander They are beautiful!  Thank you for sharing the photos, please give them a treat for me

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

Aw, Lisa, they are adorable.  There is nothing like being a pet parent - those faces when you come home, they don't ask for money, they're always happy to see you.  What a great deal.  

I hope many of the pets at Operation Kindness find wonderful forever homes this holiday season.

Thank you Elyse Berman, PA, CRS    there is nothing like the unconditional love from a pet!
