The shelter named the dog Goldie, and the kitten Kate, after celebrity mother-daughter duo Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson. After a social media post went viral with over 88,000 shares and 430,000 likes, people from all over the world wanted to adopt the pair. After careful vetting, Joe Harris and his wife were the lucky people chosen to take them in.
The gorgeous mother and daughter have now fully grown and they love their new life in their forever home. They are the center of attention among family and friends and they enjoy wrestling and playing together. Joe says that Kate still nuzzles up to Goldie on a night, craving the love and cuddles that she provided for her down by the ravine where they were found.
Anderson County P.A.W.S still have people calling up to ask if they can adopt the pair. It seems everyone has been touched by their incredible story. But Goldie and Kate are very happy in their new home and have no intentions of going anywhere else ever again. The shelter says that they have as many as 400 animals on any given day at the shelter, so there are plenty more animals that need a loving forever home. Goldie and Kate have done a fine job of encouraging people to adopt and not shop.
