Thomas was the first dog to be rescued by Placer County Animal Control after the 49 fire destroyed multiple homes in Auburn. Earlier this month, he finally found a new home. After their home burned to the ground and they were forced to move into a rental, Thomas’ family released him to Placer County Animal Services. He remained at the shelter for two months until he could move to Angels Rescuing Kritters in Weimar. Rescue shelter co-owner Suzy Bayne placed videos of Thomas on petfinders.com in hopes of finding a new home for him. A family in Davis saw the videos and traveled to Weimar to meet him. “It was a perfect match,” acknowledged Bayne. With two teenage boys in his new home, Thomas now has lots of love and several beds to choose from each night. The family has called her twice to report on how Thomas is adjusting, Bayne said. Thomas was the last dog rescued during August’s fire to be placed in a new home. However, there are still cats rescued during the fire that need homes. Angels Rescuing Kritters regularly works with Placer County Animal Services in placing companion pets in new homes as well as finding foster homes to relieve crowding in the shelter. Foster homes are critical to the adoption process because they maintain the human – animal bond, as well as provide love and care while new families are located.
