Many of our long-time adoptive parents are grandfathered in to be the sole honorary parent of their animal. Of course, as the animals get older, they need more in terms of care. So, Cassie’s adoptive dad of 8 years (and Volunteer/Board Member) Derek Blakley has said that he is happy to share his baby with anyone else who would like to adopt her. If you want to join Derek in providing monthly support to help provide Cassie with what she needs, please visit our website and go to the Help CARE > Adopt or Sponsor page.



You can sign up for the monthly subscription on PayPal from that page and then just send us an email letting us know you began your donation and that it is Cassie that you would like to support. You can also see who else is available for adoption on the same page. 📷: Derek Blakley
