While Teddy wasn’t going to be reunited with her former owners, she had a new family now — and the Schoenrocks did everything they could to help Teddy settle into her new home. Initially, Teddy had to stay in quarantine, but they made it as nice as possible for her, and made sure she had plenty of hay and water.
“That night, I just sat in the pen with her,” Raelle Schoenrock said. “I talked to her, told her she was safe. She met our chickens, and all our large animals (the cattle and horses) came over to the fence to look at her. Our cats came to say ‘hi,’ and Teddy was very curious about them. We had volunteers visit her, and I continued to sit in her pen with her.”
