Happy Tails: Passion's Story

If you have a successful adoption or rescue story you'd like to share, we would love to hear it! Fill out and submit the online form, and it will be forwarded to shelter staff.


"All I know is that my "Passion" came from Irving, Texas. She was picked up as a stray on the streets (early June of this year) and that someone there named her Margo. She was reportedly a 3+ year old female rottie (mostly) mix and extremely friendly. 'Try to find rescue' was the note on the form from the shelter there! I changed her name to Passion since she does everything with passion, whether or not it's acceptable!"

"She ended up with Animal Rescue of the Rockies in Denver, and I got her from there. I'm an experienced rottie owner and I am always thrilled to help a Rottie - especially one like Passion that is SO good with cats!!! AND good with four other big dogs!!

"THANK YOU for seeing that she was SUCH a good dog and worthy of effort to save!!! She is here in the Panhandle of Nebraska (her first experience with snow was fun!) and she is safe for the rest of her life! Please look for the little bit of evidence that the not-so-favored-breeds CAN MAKE GREAT PETS!!  She is so welcome here at "Camp Cramer" and she is forever home!!"
