THE RESCUE REPORT
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
After 8 months at Manatee County Animal Services,
Thelma was adopted by a loving family while she
was in a foster home. Thelma, a charming, 4-year-old
mixed breed, presented some challenges to finding
the right home for her. She struggled with kennel
stress at the shelter, which might have deterred potential
adopters when meeting her. She also needed
to be the only pet in the household. When she was
fostered in a volunteer’s home, she relaxed, and her
personality blossomed. That’s when she met her
new pet parents and connected with them immediately.
There were many things to like about Thelma.
She is an easy-going dog, who enjoys leisurely walks
and afternoon naps. More than anything, she adores
people, and now, she has a family to call her own.
Thelma’s story is similar to many other dogs at the shelter. It shows the importance
of fostering, and the need for perseverance while waiting for a pet to find the best
match for a successful adoption.
