Saturday, April 6, 2013 – Tasha is a 7 year old gal who is sweet as she can be…she loves to play fetch and knows sit. She was found as a stray, roaming the streets. She carried a microchip, but on contacting her owner the Humane Society was told he no longer wanted her. She had been adopted out of MDAS for use as a guard dog but she did not have the temperament for that vocation. Because of her sweet disposition, her energy and playfulness, she had quickly become a favorite at the shelter. She is very affectionate to the staff and will be very much missed…but they know she deserves a much better life.

And so on this Saturday morning with the help of her transport team, Tasha begins the journey to her foster home with Terre Hall in Panama City. Thank you to Paula and the staff at the Florida Humane Society for contacting us to get Tasha into rescue, and for the wonderful care she received there.

A HUGE thank you to Tasha’s incredible transport team – Stacy Santarone, Eileen Burnell, Rita Wolf, Karen Alderson, Ruth Stanton and Terre Hall for giving up their Saturday to get this amazing girl on the road to her future. And for all of the wonderful accessories you provided to her for her safety, comfort and enjoyment.

UPDATE: Within a day of arrival to Terre, Tasha (now known as Poppy) has wowed everyone who has met her! Terre took her along to club on Sunday where they were testing for Canine Good Citizen and on a whim a friend took Poppy thru testing and she ACED it!

We wish Poppy a wonderful future full of adventures and love… you’re proving yourself every day Poppy-CGC!

UPDATE: Applications have already started coming in for Poppy so we are very hopeful that the perfect home for her will be found soon.
