Blue Earth Nicollet County Humane Society (BENCHS) posted a collie puppy for adoption. We were alerted by someone who saw the ad, and I started the process of contacting them. Introducing myself and the rescue. Terri, from BENCHS texted me asking if text was an okay form of communication. She needed to talk to her director. Got back to me later saying they would work with us.
Emails transpired with two possible people who live in Mankato to contact to see if they could pull Mona from the shelter and hold her overnight until we could get someone to pick her up. That someone being Terry, our president who even has a sticker on her car that says ‘collie taxi’. Terry is amazing with all of her transporting between these snow storms we’ve been having this month. Side note on the snow: we will most likely break the all-time record for snowfall in the month of February.
I contacted a couple who was more than happy to help. Mona was already on their radar, as they were considering adding a friend for their current dog, an MWCR alumni. But then decided it wasn’t the right time to do that, as their dog needed more training.
Mona is an adorable wiggle-butt who loves attention and giving kisses. Terri sent me a video of her greeting people at the shelter and oh man, I wish I were going to pick her up. She was given to the police from a woman who said she found her as a stray, then handed over to BENCHS.
It is so great when we can work with the shelters as a win-win solution. A big thank you to Terri, Terry, Keith, Judith and BENCHS.
