Meadowlake Pet Resort & Red Collar Rescue Find Home for a Deployed Soldier’s Two Dogs
Courtney is an Army Reservist with two dogs whom she loves. Unfortunately, being a reservist keeps Courtney from home for long periods of time and neighbors have been helping care for her beloved babies, Mecca and Roxy. At the end of April, Courtney was deployed to Afghanistan for a year or longer. Knowing she would be gone for such a long period of time Courtney made the heart wrenching decision to find a new home for Mecca and Roxy.
With the help of forwarded emails, Courtney was able to contact Alexandra Kelsey. Ms. Kelsey’s love of pets and numerous contacts makes her the unofficial rescue coordinator for the state of Texas. Meadowlake Pet Resort agreed to help these two ladies and immediately called the numerous rescue groups Meadowlake works with to see if anyone had room for Mecca and Roxy in their program. Red Collar Rescue willingly accepted Mecca and Roxy into their adoption program. Ms. Kelsey and Red Collar Rescue started raising funds to get Mecca and Roxy up to date on all of their shots. After visiting the vet Mecca and Roxy will be staying at Meadowlake Pet Resort, free of charge, until a new home can be found for these two little ladies.
