It’s amazing that everyone has adopted rescue animals. There is a lot of laughter and joy.
Tracy and Scott Whyatt have saved the lives of over 700 puppies and placed them in adoring permanent homes since 2011.
The pair got sick of seeing 2.7 million puppies and kittens put down every year in shelters because to overcrowding.
Tracy began Tracy’s Tykes with Scott after she took a six-week leave of absence from work.
in 2011 and made the decision to pursue her passion of dedicating her life to protecting children.
Tracy and Scott spend their days traveling to kill ports in order to save Texas-based children who would otherwise be put to death.
The puppies are taken to Tracy’s Dogs’ facility in San Antonio, Texas, where they get medical care and are readied for adoption.
Tracy’s kids also seek forever homes for the doggos and pre-adopts them all. Tracy’s tykes will collaborate with businesses like PetSmart to provide a meeting spot where prospective canine owners may meet their pre-adopted canines.
Scott loads the tykes into a 32-foot caravan every month and transports them to PetSmart parking lots in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., and even Florida to meet their new family.
“When people borrow or adopt a dog from us, I want them to understand that they are not only adopting that dog, but they are also saving the lives of three children,” Liz Grabarits, Operations Director, stated.
As a result, when 60 tykes leave, another 60 can come by and be spared from killing harbors.
That means there’s still room for 60 more at the harbors.
The Tracy’s Tykes crew witnesses the joyful moments when a canine is brought into a home where they will be unconditionally loved and looked over for the rest of their life.
It’s a very emotional time for new pet owners. Tracy’s Dogs is really serious about this.
That is why they commonly hold a type of celebration known as “Gotcha Day” in which all of the families going to borrow tykes will congregate in front of the caravan while the pups being blazoned are properly blazoned and delivered to their new possessors. Everyone blasts and cheers, and it’s very endearing.
Megan Peters and Brian Roseto had been searching for a pet online without success until they eventually set up Tracy’s tykes.
“We set up Benny, soon to be Finn’s partner, and fell in love with him incontinently,” Peters said.
And that’s exactly what happened when Megan and Brian got to meet the canine they would name Finn for the first time in PetSmart’s parking lot.
“I’m so agitated, I’m trying not to cry,” Peters said.
Roseto was just beaming at the sight of his new friend.
There were over 60 happy families made complete that day.
According to Whyatt, each dog receives between five and thirty relinquishment procedures.
