Happy Trails from the Campers of Chaos
When a foster pup checks into Camp Chaos, or any foster home, a world of opportunity opens that otherwise would be unavailable. Take a look at the opportunities our Campers seized thanks to spending a little time at Camp Chaos. Send an update & photo to CampChaos37206@gmail.com to share your happy tale!
9 Puppies (3-11): March '07 found us at the dog park 7am on a Monday morning. As we had our coffee & watched our 3 girls run, a ne'er-do-well pulled into the parking lot, lost our attention, & then left 9 little puppies behind our car with a butter bowl of beans & cornbread. Not only were they puppies, which even the Grinch couldn't leave alone, but it was a record-breaking cold day. After making a call to the office to let them know I'd be late, Commander walked our dogs home & I drove home with a backseat full of shivering puppies. Nashville Humane took all for intake except 1, Fluff Bucket > Diego. Greta, Batman, & Yogi (above) were with us longer than the rest since we had to have 2 intake appointments. Greta would have become a furever pup if Georgie Girl wouldn't have joined us from animal control 2 weeks prior. Since then, we don't give large-breed puppies to NHA for fear that someone will adopt them only to have them become yard dogs. While it takes time, work, & money, it has been worth it to ensure that our little ones get their happily ever after.
A Jack Russell mix puppy (24): One work day, we received a call from Turbo Dog's dad. He said there was a litter of puppies in North Nashville at an empty rental property. It took us a few days to get there and by that time, the owner had removed the puppies or called animal control, we're not sure which. As we were driving off, there was one little guy who appeared in the street. We had spoken to Nashville Humane Association who graciously said they could help if we found the litter. When we arrived at NHA with one little flea-ridden boy, they fortunately were able to take him. This isn't normal because they typically are so full, and we are so grateful they were able to help.
