"Trillie (short for Trillium) is about 3 years old, a tripod St. Bernard/Lab mix. She was being given away at a garage sale by her previous owner because they didn't want her anymore. She had never walked on a leash before or even been in a house. We don't think she had ever been to a vet before, as shown by the condition of her missing leg. In spite of her rough beginning, Trillie is silly, goofy, and just about the sweetest pup you'll meet. She loves cuddling and just wants to be loved by people. Originally she was supposed to stay with me for a few days until a better foster could be found, but the animal rescue organization hasn't found a place for her, so she is still with me."
Unlike the earlier owners, Rebecca won't abandon this dog. We're still hoping that a home can be found for Trillie, but if that doesn't happen, she'll need to come to Cape May with Rebecca. And the housing we have for our fall staff is leased from the state, and pets aren't permitted.
Might anyone near Cape May have a place where this lovable dog could spend the fall, while Rebecca works on the Monarch Monitoring Project? Ideally we'd love to find a place where both Rebecca and the dog could stay. Our season runs from the last week of August through the first week of November. If you think you can help, or if you have an idea for us, please send an e-mail message to Monarch Monitoring Project Director Mark Garland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
