Oh my gosh, I totally forgot to update, I just found out yesterday they were adopted together! We ended up taking them to the animal shelter where my mom volunteers and would pull them back out if they were going to be put to sleep. But they were able to go home together and I'm super excited! :D Thanks so much for asking.
There are two BLC's that I know of on Spark, I only know how the one I do functions. They do 12 weeks at a time, 4 times a year. We just started so the next round would be in January.
