         Hazel gets a second chance!

It is not often, as a volunteer, one has the opportunity to see a GTAS alumni in their new home. I had that wonderful chance this weekend. Thanks to Roger and Chris for their generosity in asking that donations to celebrate their marriage be given to Gentle Touch. Those donations were to honor Hazel Penelope. Not only did I recognize Hazel, but I remember the circumstances surrounding her surrender and processed the surrender. Hazel and her sister Phyllis were homeless, along with their distraught pet parent (who not only lost his home but job as well). Hazel had a very difficult time adjusting to her new surroundings and many volunteers helped by making sure she was eating. Today Hazel has a happy home with a beagle and another cat, not to mention loving pet parents. Thank you Roger and Chris!


Here is a picture of Hazel sitting on her pillow in my art studio. She visits me there, especially when I'm working late at night.

Meet Zander

Zander's first bath.  His whole coloring remarkably changed and he felt like a new man.

Zander laying in his favorite spot.

Zander found himself in a little bit of a situation.  At 15 years of age he was homeless and had no where to go.  GTAS/Zanderville Farm 
had him transported to MN and promised him a home for the rest of his life.  He is a sweet little man, and still has some get up and go left in him.  He loves hanging about outside soaking in the sun rays and visiting the neighbor and his dogs.
