A discussion between friends in Princeton and Merritt has resulted in a close contact for rescuing and rehoming dogs…
Tammy and Larissa Simon, friends of Margie Honeywell, founder and president of Marvelous Mutts Rescue Society out of Merritt wanted to extend the reach of the rescue to Princeton.
Margie said to Tammy, “Well hook me up! Let’s get it done.”
“We want people to help with foster care and we want to help find adoption families,” said Larissa.
Tammy and Larissa enlisted the help of Audrey Blanchette, owner of Everything Pets, who in turn extended an invitation to Marvelous Mutts Rescue to visit.
“Audrey is so polite and accommodating,” said Margie Honeywell.
On Saturday, June 7, Marvelous Mutts Rescue volunteers arrived in Princeton and set up in front of Everything Pets at the Plaza Mall.
Residents had the opportunity to visit with dogs in care: Wendy, Duchess, Julio, Bella and Buddy in the Marvelous Mutts Kissing Booth, Eddie, Sophie, Cloe and another Buddy. The dogs enjoyed being the stars of the show and especially enjoyed the dog treats courtesy of Paulette’s Cakerie.
The dogs in care of the rescue are either surrenders or rescues and are placed with foster families until their forever homes can be found.
Buddy, the Jack Russel Terrier found his forever home with local Jack Angstadt. Jack needed a trucking buddy and Buddy, after a trial trip, suits the lifestyle perfectly.
