We’ve had another great adoption this holiday season! Amira is shy and has been hard to show because men are uncomfortable for her to meet, but when her new mom came to the shelter it was magic!!

Congrats to this wonderful girl and her forever family!

PUPDATE: We’ve been able to find her family! Thanks to all who connected us! She’s going home today!

This old lady-dog appears to have been abandoned in a pen at the shelter! No one saw it happen but we have no information to share—makes our job really tough.

If you recognize her, please call or email the shelter and help us find her family!

This girl was found near Hope. If you know where she belongs, please connect our team to her guardians!

Please help us with a Christmas Eve miracle!! We need your help!

This little old mannie was brought in this morning by a Good Samaritan. We don’t know where he was found but he may have been from the Hilltop Trailer Park area.

He’s very sweet but wearing ID that is not his own. We need our followers to find his family!

These 3 kittens are enjoying life in a foster home but are ready to be in a forever home for the holidays!

Nala (brown tabby), Chunk (tabby & white) and Georgie (who is not actually broken!😜) are all snuggly, playful and used to being around dogs.

We would like to show off our favorite black & tan hound mix: LUKAS! He’s a young dog who craves attention from people or dog friends. He would go well in a home with another social dog and humans who like to play, excercise and encourage his inquisitive nature.

If you’d like to meet Lukas or any of his shelter buddies, call or email for an appointment!

Our open house this afternoon was such an amazing success! We really enjoyed getting the chance to see all of our visitors, animal and human. We'd like to send out some thank you's this evening:

- Thank you so much to all who came out and those who made donations. In addition to alllll those supplies you can see, we also received $650 in cash/check donations! We are so, so appreciative of those who were able to contribute. 2020 has been a tough year for us all and we could not have made it through without the support of this community.

- Another HUGE thank you to our staff and volunteers who helped make today such a success! They were full of so much holiday spirit and we're sure their enthusiasm put smiles on the faces of everyone who stopped by. Our organization would be nothing without those hardworking, warm-hearted faces behind the masks.

We hope to see you this afternoon at the shelter between 1 and 3!

Lovely Kaylee is a recent empty nester and is hoping to find herself a new home before years’ end. She was a wonderful momma, gave her kittens everything she could and suffered for it. She’s in a foster home where she has other cat friends, lots of sunny windows, and has enjoyed humans (adults and children) while soaking up lots of TLC!

If you would like to give Kaylee the best gift- a forever home- please call or email our shelter to make an appointment!

Please join us this Sunday from 1 to 3pm for our Holiday Open House! As usual, Santa will be making a special visit to the shelter. He, our volunteers, and our adoptable dogs will be waiting outside for you to thank you for visiting. We will have the shelter exterior decorated for the holidays and will have some treats to gift while our supplies last.

This year, our open house will be "drive-through" style to keep our visitors, staff, and volunteers as safe as possible. We will ask that you pull into a parking spot out front, allow our team to greet you and collect any donations you would like to leave, and we will send you on your way with a huge thank you and warm wishes for the holidays. The shelter will not be open during this time.

Keep an eye out for the animals' holiday wish list! If you'd like to make contribution to the shelter but would feel more comfortable doing so from the safety of your home, we have several options. We are always thrilled to receive items from our Amazon wish list (linked below), and you can make monetary donations via Facebook or via PayPal on our website.

We’ve got CATTENS! It’s what we call teenage kittens! 😸

These kids have grown up in the shelter this summer and we’d like to get them home for the holidays! Call or email our shelter for more info!

Edward is a brown tabby, Hyde is orange, Buffy is all black and Jody has a white star. All are about 6 months old, fixed and up to date in vaccines!

Check out this playful, pretty darn perfect cat, Miss Bobetta! This girl is sweet and goofy and would do well in an active home with children.

She’s about 3 years old, has been fixed and is up to date on her vaccinations. She is also FeLV +, so she should be an only cat or could live in a home with another leukemia positive feline friend!

If you are interested in meeting this girl or any other cats, call or email our office for an appointment!

Have you tried 450 North Brewing Company's latest special release beer, Who Rescued Who? yet? We told you last week how excited we were to have our organization and animals selected to be featured. Today we have even more reason to be excited about it!

Daisy would have hit her one-year anniversary in the shelter tomorrow. But thanks to the this awesome opportunity, Daisy went home with her new mom today! We are so grateful to 450 North for the exposure and sponsorship of her adoption fee, to her new mom for opening up her heart to this sweet girl, and to our K9 Program Manager, Brandon, for helping to make sure Daisy is successful in her new home. Daisy had a rough start in life and deserves nothing but love for the rest of her days.

Our other featured pup, Miles, is still waiting. Miles has been with us since January of 2019 and needs to find his forever home! See our earlier post below to find out more about Miles:

Hunter has run off!! Please contact me if you see him. He may look a little scary but he is a very sweet dog. We live in North Columbus near Taylorsville.
My daughter's kitten "Casper " can anyone tell me how to help him? I've spent 200 already he still looks miserable. I listen on wkkg. Thanks. [email protected]
Danny (long hair grey) with our Senpu. Senpu has been much happier now with the addition to the 2 cats we adopted.
Adopted 2 cats awhile back from yall. Pretzel and Danny. Pretezel is slowing coming out of her shell. She loves being petted (we still have to let her come to us) and she gives love nips. She loves laying on the couch watching the birds outside. She likes the laser pointer too. Her and the other 2 cats will play and chase each other. Danny is such a love bug. She loves to lay in bed with me. She loves snuggles and attention. She likes to be brushed. Due to her eye she has a hard time playing with the laser pointer, but still enjoys it. Her favorite place is on the back of the couch or my bed. She likes to follow me around. Our cat, Senpu, that we got the other cats to give her company, has really enjoyed having the company and playmates. Her and Danny are often chillin in my bed together. Pictured: Pretzel
