Posted Mar 09 2011 1:43pm
We are so excited to partner with Flip the Dog to promote adoption and the great animals available at shelter's and rescue groups throughout the area! Special thanks to Meadowlake and Natural Pawz for helping our first "Flip" have a nice place to sleep and some great food to get her ready for her Furever Home.
Meet the first "Flip Dog", Fergie!
Fergie, a 2 year-old female Chihuahua mix from the Houston Humane Society is the most recent four-legged friend to be assisted by Flip the Dog, an adoption program started by the Black Sheep Agency.
Fergie is a sweet, house-trained companion who has made it through two stints at the shelter. Flip the Dog hopes the most recent visit will be her last, and they are looking for a new, permanent home for this adorable pooch. Fergie is currently residing at Meadowlake Pet Resort in Houston where she is receiving expert obedience training, special attention and a top-notch diet provided by Natural Pawz .
“We’re excited to welcome Fergie to Meadowlake,” said Director of Pet Services at Meadowlake, Laura Koch. “She’s cute as can be and has already made herself comfortable with the staff and the other residents.”
Flip the Dog is an adoption program started by the Black Sheep Agency in Houston, Texas. This organization partners with shelters and other pet-friendly businesses to identify high-need animals and find them new homes using social media and marketing.
