2013 Rescue Kerries Placed: Molly

Rescue Write-Up

Sometimes animal shelters do not allow their animals to be adopted by breed rescue organization. The KBTF found Molly in a shelter, but was not able to get her out. However, since most shelters do not have a good understanding of the breed, we work with those shelters in finding the right for-ever-home. This is what happened with Molly.

Note: If you are looking to adopt a Kerry, please complete our questionnaire and we will notify you when we find a Kerry that might fit your circumstances. Do not wait until you find a Kerry listed on our web site. Some of our Kerries are placed before they reach our website.

Hooray! Molly comes out of the Humane Society tomorrow and has been officially adopted by a wonderful forever mom in Baltimore.

Their adoption procedures are rigorous. Her new mom went in for an initial interview and filled out an app. They checked her references and invited her back for a second visit and she was required to bring her children. Then a third interview and she was required to bring her resident Kerry, also a rescue. Duncan "behaved like a perfect gentleman," his mom reports.

She was competing with two other applicants and got the good news today.

This kerry girl's new mom fell in love with Molly on the first visit. She has renamed her "Spirit," as she is a wild, beautiful and loving Kerry. Exactly the kind of Kerry that this adopter specializes in. I rehomed an older Kerry to her several years ago -- a wild and spirited Maggie.....

Anyway, it's a great, great match. So, HAPPINESS here in the mid-Atlantic.

The new mom is the best and I know that I will hear many Spirit stories!
