CNMBC Brittany Rescue Success Stories

In pursuiting our goal of rescuing every Brittany in New Mexico and preventing Brittanys from being put down, CNMBC works with our members and mulitple rescue resources. The CNMBC does takes pride in matching rescued Brittanys with owners and new forever homes. Here are some of our recent success stories.

Gracie and Nutmeg (Meg) were adopted as a pair making this rescue placement a bit more challenging. Gracie and Meg came into rescue separately, from different places, about 1 1/2 years apart. The hard part was getting Gracie placed, since she was over 6 years, and had some unexplained medical issues when we first got her. These health issues took several months to clear up. She was quiet and just did not show herself well to adopters.

Here are photos of Gracie and Meg enjoying their new loving home in Santa Fe. Seems now the only thing they need help with is improving their "selfie skills!"

Frosty, AKA Jack Frost, AKA Jackson was found almost frozen to death last winter in the East Mountains. Frosty has recovered thanks to the actions of our Brittany Rescue volunteers and veterinarian services funded by CNMBC through fund rasining efforts and donations throughout the year. These photos show a health Frosty who has cleary warmed up to his new home.
