Wordless Wednesday: Hailey is Home

After I blogged about Hailey and her situation, I was stunned to receive the next newsletter from Dogwood and see that Hailey still was waiting for a forever home.    I immediately sent an SOS email to Neil over at Life With Dogs.  Hailey's story broke his heart, too, as I knew it would.  I gave him permission to rip any info he wanted from my blog and sent him the Dogwood newsletters, too.

I'm thrilled to report that social media really worked for Hailey.  As reported on Life With Dogs, late last week an anonymous man took Hailey home.  He's reported that other than a bit of anxiety at times, she's settling into her new home well.

Dogwood Animal Shelter was overwhelmed with correspondence from around the world and Hailey's new best friend was selected from a list of applicants.

Thanks to all of you who forwarded, StumbledUpon, shared on Facebook, Twitter, and so on!  And I have no doubt that Hailey thanks you, too.


  1. Thank you SO MUCH for helping Hailey find her home! You ROCK :-)

  2. Yay! You did a great job getting the word out there and finding Hailey her new home! That is just terrific! :)

  3. AWESOME, crying for a different reason now!!

  4. Have to say that I hope all those who contacted Dogwood about Hailey also considered other dogs there waiting for their happy ending. And that this experience has opened DAS's eyes about using social media to get their message out to a broad audience.


Go ahead... bark at us!
