Thank You for Giving Dasher a Home

‘Tis the season…to pat yourself on the back! Thanks to our awesome supporters, thousands of animals are home for the holidays—for the very first time.

These animals include one of our favorite cats ever, Dasher.

The ASPCA removed Dasher from a hoarding situation. Though he had been suffering for a long time when we met him, he was still cheerful and outgoing. He loved all people. He loved other cats. Heck, he even loved dogs. Everyone loved him right back.

Even so, Dasher had a hard time finding a home. In addition to being FIV-positive, Dasher had very sensitive skin. He needed prescription food, medication and regular dental care at the vet.

But things turned around for Dasher in September, when Ben P. and Jenn Q. walked in to the ASPCA. Dasher confidently marched up to them for a snuggle, and Ben and Jenn fell in love with him on the spot. Magical!

Today, Dasher is Jenn’s constant shadow, cuddling on her lap or following her around the apartment, unless he’s busy batting around toy mice or a stray bottle cap. Whatever he’s doing, Jenn says, he’s always adding an extra dose of happiness to her home and putting a smile on everyone’s face.

We never forget that without you, Dasher would have never received this second chance. Thanks for being there for him!

If you’d like to help us create more happy endings for animals like Dasher, you can donate to the ASPCA here. (Hurry! Donate before January 1 to get a last-minute tax break.)

I just wanted to drop a line and say how your adds are not only in bad taste , but the images you put in mind when you play the backround music in your adds is just distroying the beautifuf music. When your latest add came out with silent night in the backround it was to much. You are not only ruining the music , you are turning people against your cause. Whoever got the idea to do this kind of add should be fired. I will never give a dime to any orginasation that distroys beauti to say they are protecting something else.


Ben and Jenn, You retore my faith. You are good people, unsung heroes, and I am so glad that you and beautiful Dasher have found each other. Love and peace and joy to you three always.
