Midnight and Luna collage

Just imagine these two lovely girls living in this box. They did – before being discovered by a neighbor and taken to a high kill shelter by animal control. Their ‘house’ had no windows or door, and the only way they got food and water was by someone sliding bowls under the ‘door’ of the box.

You would think that after living in these awful conditions, that Luna (light-colored) and Midnight (black) would not be friendly, but these girls have not allowed their previous situation to dim their dispositions. To them, today is a whole new day and they are loving, sweet, well-adjusted girls! Both of them are friendly with people and other dogs (male and female). Midnight could share her home with friendly kitties but Luna would sooner have a ‘kittyless’ home. Midnight is bonded with Luna and often looks to her for cues. Luna on the other hand is a more independent lady. Both walk well on a leash and are between 1 and 2 years old.

We’d love to see Luna and Midnight in great forever homes, or maybe even the same home! They are both on the smaller side ( Luna around 30lbs and Midnight around 40lbs) and would be very happy to be adopted out together.

The Great American Mammal Jamboree

By Alden E. C. Bigelow

$16.95

A book for all ages!

Order now from Alden’s website – www.aldenbigelow.com, or pick up your copy at Caring For Creatures.

 

“Alden Bigelow weaves a mysterious tale that takes the reader on a wonderful journey, full of lessons learned and special mammal friends, and starring Jessie, the lovable narrator.”

                                                     - Dr. M.E. Adams

 

“Invisible cloaks, ghostly soldiers, and benevolent sabotage!  The Great American Mammal Jamboree spins a tale that compels us to suspend our disbelief as we root for the good guys to win.  While the animals in this unique fable are witty and entertaining, they underscore the serious theme of  animal cruelty and what needs to be done to combat it.

Animal lovers will delight in this lighthearted tale, but its value as a lesson for humanity makes it required reading.”

– Gerry Kruger, author of On Kruger Pond: Charlie’s Story

 

Here’s Alden Bigelow discussing his new book, The Great American Mammal Jamboree, with Mary Birkholz:

ABOUT ALDEN…

ALDEN BIGELOW, the voice of Caring For Creatures, teams up every week with MONTICELLO MEDIA to share news from the sanctuary and feature one of the great CFC animals waiting for his or her forever home.  Alden Bigelow is a creative genius and gifted writer with a passion for and love of animals.  He has utilized those talents along with his advertising/public relations expertise to help the 200+ animals currently in residence at CFC.  All of us at Caring For Creatures are grateful to Alden and his beautiful wife, Marjorie, for their commitment to Caring For Creatures for over seven years.  It is through their efforts that many lives are saved every year.  Alden’s literary genius has led to the publishing of several books:  Growing Up With Jemima, I Have My Reasons, Norton’s Lament and his most recent novel, Killing Time in a Southern Town.  Based on what we know of Alden, we might attribute some of his inspiration to the many animal companions he has had over the years.  Currently, Alden and Marjorie share their lives with canine, Elvis and Buddy, both adopted from CFC.
