Sgt. Pepper’s Friends Home fundraiser

As lots of you awesome people already know, one of our goals since we started in 2015 is to realize our own Sgt. Pepper’s Home🏡, a home base where we can house (a part of) our rescues, welcome volunteers, donators, rehabilitate and train (adult) dogs, educate children: a genuine home base for our foundation, really something more than a “shelter”.
We have a dedicated team of foster families for mostly puppies and kittens/cats, however finding fosterfamilies for adult dogs or a mommy with her litter (both dogs and cats) turns out to be very difficult or better said: almost impossible.

Ocean – one year forever-home-aversary

Today is the one year forever-home-aversary for Ocean and we have so many great things to say about adopting an adult dog. It breaks my heart to see how long adult dogs wait to find a forever home. Sgt. Pepper’s Friends currently has three Adult dogs who were rescued in the beginning of February of this year and are still patiently waiting for a home. So I thought I would share a little about our first year with adopting an adult rescue because I know these dog’s future families are out there and just need a little reminder of how special adopting an adult dog can be.

The adventures of Aiden

Hi there! Remember me? It’s Aiden J

Exactly one month ago, my new chapter in life began when I arrived in the Netherlands. Well, to be honest, my journey began some weeks earlier. It all started the day you guys from Sgt. Pepper’s Friends saved me and my little brother Archie from the streets in Aruba. I can’t thank you enough for taking care of me, bringing me to the vet, feeding me, walking me, fostering me, socializing me with humans and other animals, and finding me a forever home. I really hope you can save lots and lots of other animals out there because we all deserve a second chance.

Odessa aka Riley’s Canada adventure

Odessa is adjusting so well and is loved by everyone she meets. All she has to do is look at a stranger passing on the street, wiggle her little body and tail, and they come right over to say hello. Everyone is so grateful for her and I’m always hearing “thank-you’s” from all her new people friends and that she’s made their day by inviting them over to say hello

Animal companions have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. From hamsters, to bunnies, to horses, and even a favorite cow growing up, I’ve long since built my life around raising, training, caring for, and living with animals.
