For eleven days the cat named McKenzie, ("Kenzie" for short), went missing from her home, in Masontown, PA. This was an accidental escape, and Kenzie ran from her pet-parents out of mere fear! The TBC Search & Rescue Team was brought in almost immediately and began their search efforts following the very last sighting of her. The Team continued to follow Kenzie through the woods, streets, and side roads of Masontown, PA; leading them across a busy intersection, to businesses, private homes, and even through the first major 6 inches of snowfall of December 2020!
TBC Red flags were placed at each confirmed "hit" and sighting in order to track Kenzies whereabouts. Traps were set and monitored on a regular basis, and moved into locations to bring her closer to the Team, and pet-owners. There were many car trips into surrounding areas, and no building or warehouse was left unchecked. The Team used various methods of tracking with proper training, and special equipment was used to track the kitty.
Finally, she was seen by one of her pet-parents and then she disappeared before their eyes! The Team investigated the areas and found that she had hid into what appeared to be either a rabbit or groundhog hole. So the Team placed traps in the area close by and went to prepare for an all night "stake-out". Only she decided to go for the food in one of the traps before the Team returned for the "stake-out"! WELCOME BACK HOME KENZIE!! The TBC Search & Rescue Team was more than delighted, and a CHRISTMAS MIRACLE HAPPENED!

Our boxer named Teddy has found his forever home on August 16th! When his new Mama came to meet him, he ran into her arms as if he had known her his whole life. The Teddy Bear Care Staff on hand at the time were puzzled to see Teddy's reaction.
But then we all realized animals will sometimes "choose" their humans. This was just such an extraordinary event. Since his adoption we have been following his new adventures which we are all delighted and very happy for him. Welcome to your Forever
Thank you Christina for loving our Teddy and making him part of your life!

Teddy Bear Care Corporation made the decision to get back to work after the five long months of lock-down from the Covid Virus in our state. This decision was made by the TBC Event Committee, once the GREEN status was announced by State Officials, with certain restrictions for safety. August 8th, 2020 was the date set, to be held at the Fairdale Inn-Mystery Finds 422 Rt. 88 in Carmichaels, PA.
Although we had several vendors cancel due to other issues, we had a wonderful turn out. Everyone who participated arrived on time,and set up went smoothly! The TBC booth served refreshments of walking tacos, soft drinks, cookie kits, pepperoni rolls and ALL of the usual TBC merchandise! The Volunteers did a GREAT JOB, as usual talking with to the visitors of the day and “working” the LOVE for the animals!!
ALL the vendors' talents were judged by our four local community members. Adam Kelly of Mystery Finds, Charlie Perkins of RT 40 Classic Diner, Officer Melissa Adamson of the Cumberland Twp. Police Dept and “Miss Norma” of the Flenniken Library were the Judges for the day.
The following vendors won prizes and ribbons:
Donna Roberts won a blue ribbon for her entire booth, of which one portrait in particular impressed the Judges. It was the graphite portrait of the late Co-Founder of TBC and her brother, Brian Roberts.
Danielle Nyland of Studio 1331 won First Place Blue Ribbon and top monetary prize for her booth and the Judges were impressed by her Tractor Picture and HDR Photography.
