July 27--  The Vidalia Animal Shelter's practice of not killing dogs continues to result in happy pet story endings.

The latest is Gracie, a yellow Lab who spent a year in the Vidalia shelter before being adopted by a family in Maine.  "A yellow Lab just doesn't exist in shelters up here.  The second one does come in it already had a home," according to Sarah Lacharite, the mother in Gracie's new family.


By the time they found Gracie on www.petfinder.com, she was in a foster home with Thyra Burakowski, a member of the Sweet Onion Animal Protection Society. "It is a story of survival and thank God for Chief Waits who doesn't put down the dogs and he keeps them so we can try to find them homes," she says.

Meanwhile, in Maine, Gracie is enjoying camping and swimming and being a part of her new family.  "We've had her for a couple of weeks now.  The marks on her face are less noticeable, we're slowing putting some weight on her so she's still a little on the skinny side, but all in all I think she looks a lot happier," Thyra says.

She also reports Gracie's disposition is just what she was looking for.  "I wanted a dog my son could play with and touch, because my little Terrier won't really let him go near him.  But she's been very well.  He crawls all over her and she doesn't mind at all," she says.
