    After "The Haven - Friends for Life" shelter in Raeford NC was raided by police and the ASPCA, many of them very sick, this past weekend, all 524 cats and dogs were adopted. Every single one.  Old dogs, with arthritis, some cats and dogs with cancer (who are getting long term medical care underwritten by the ASPCA), each one got a home.  The photo below shows the last dog leaving, an old arthritic dog who went to a family with a veteran with PTSD.  And this link brings you the happy ending to the whole thing.  http://www.aspca.org/news/every-single-animal-adopted-event-leads-500-adoptions-one-weekend

    :clap::clap::clap: That's amazing! The turnout was absolutely incredible, and hopefully those who didn't adopt last weekend will head for their nearest shelter and find their perfect companions.

    I have goosebumps, tearry eyes and a huge smile and warm heart, what a fantastic article and mission!

    Oh my gosh the part about the last old dog getting adopted and they all sang?! It put me over the edge.

    Anyone who had a hand in this major rescue event should be extremely proud!!
