Ginger’s doing great, everyone loves her, she is now fully vaccinated and trained on the invisible fence.  She is a very fast learner, and loves to play ball and jump in the ivy on the stone wall.  We are still working on house manners and not jumping, but once she gets her wiggles out she calms nicely.  The boys, ages 6 & 3, adore her.  Monty, our resident Maine Coon, is tolerant except at mealtimes.  Ginger is curious about the cat, wants to play, but backs down nicely when Monty declares playtime is over.  Ginger is still timid & shy going outside at night, they must’ve had a tough time when she & her littermates were abandoned.  Pictures to follow soon.

Thank you, Pet Matchmaker, for this lovely, lovable addition to our family!

Dear Pet MatchMaker,

I am so happy to let you know Swazey -a beautiful and happy Gordon Setter/Lab mix has joined our family in Lexington,MA. Our old and cancer sick dog for 10 years passed over the Rainbow Bridge early November. The house and family all missed having a dog and so began a search looking for a nice new dog.As we only were interested in giving a deserving older dog a home (as we did in the past )we found Petmatchmaker. I saw the pictures and read the story of Swazey-and knew he was the one! Emailed his Foster mom, and got to know a few more good details about him. We met and decided on the spot to adopt him -and it is a joy having him .We take 2 daily long walks in the neighborhood and woods ,and yesterday my husband and kids built a 150 by 150 by 150 feet enclosed “dog off the leash run” in front of our living room window. I am teaching him to heel and sit as well as greeting people nicely-and he is a fast learner! My 2 cats and birds all get along -the kitties and us get lots of wet dog kisses!

Thank you so much, Kirsten



Freya (formerly Frey) was an unexpected addition to our family. We already had 2 cats and one dog (a 7 year old Sheltie) and weren’t sure we had the time or energy for a puppy… but that didn’t stop us from talking about getting one!

We first saw and fell in love with Freya at the Pet Rocks Festival in Worcestor. She was small, tired and sweet. After playing with her and taking her for a walk my 4 year old son asked if we could take her home. She was adorable, how could i say no? so we made all the arrangements to make her a part of our family.

She is such a joy. She’s fun, energetic and attentive. She’s just as happy chasing balls in the yard as she is curled up next to us watching tv. i’ve never seen a dog capture so many people’s hearts so quickly as she has… we’re so happy to have her with us.

Thank you Pet Matchmaker for saving her and bringing our little Freya-lou to us!
