This is Stormy. He is settling in well and is 100% a snuggle bug. I sometimes think I adopted a scarf instead of a cat. He is very playful and is adjusting well! This picture was taken at nap time he was too cute not to take a picture of.

Foster and Adoption success stories...
We have had Suzy (now Sadie) for almost 1 1/2 years. As you know, when she left your facility, she was positive for heart worms. We were told, promised even, that expense would be taken care of by the shelter. However, those supplies/service were never provided to us after multiple attempts to reach someone at the shelter. We took her to our personal vet and had her treated. She is doing very well here and became a part of our family instantly. She and her sister, Stella, are two peas in a pod. Thank you for saving her short little life, as our family would not be the same without her.

Our sweet Como is doing well, we absolutely LOVE him, as you can see the main owner is our son Jeremiah that is 9 years old and he is doing so well on tending to all Como's needs, Como has had a few accidents in the house but that's to be expected and we still love him the same, he's done an Awesome job when it came to my Yorkie. I was so worried with the size difference, but he's been awesome with her. What shocked me the most is our sweet Anna that we rescued from y'all a few years ago, get along so well I just CAN'T believe it. We are all a complete little happy family.

He is doing great and adjusting to his new life well. Other first dog, Crimson, has the personality of a couch potato and Milo (formerly Buddy) does not! Milo is our wild child and he’s livening up our house. He has lots of zoomies, loves giving kisses and getting pats, and loves playing fetch. We’re still working on potty training though. Milo is doing great and we thank you for giving us a new fur baby.

Tails from home: Foster and Adoption success stories...
This is Zoey. Can you say spoiled? She is totally loved and the feeling is mutual. She’s definitely made our home her home and made us her family. She’s already been to see our local vet and got her medical records established there. Plus she’s getting daily walks and plenty of playtime out back in our fenced in yard. She likes to go into our woods to potty in privacy which is just so cute.

Thank you for our little girl 💕,

Adoption and Foster success stories...His new name is Beans, my sister helped me name him. He is such a smart little kitty cat. He has never failed to use his litter box and he loves his Hill’s Science diet food. He is very playful and energetic. He just runs around chasing his toys and climbing until he is tired and wants to cuddle with me. He likes to scratch me little bit, but they are love scratches I like to think. He is definitely my new best friend and I love him very much. It’s hard to get him to pose for a picture but he was still long enough for me to get this! Thank you for helping me find this little guy!

Ziggy- who I have renamed Owen! Owen has been the been the biggest blessing so far! He is super well behaved, has done amazing with every person and animal he’s met, and his sweet personality has really began to show. He loves going on walks, car rides, and cuddling any chance he gets. He’s been so much fun to have! His favorite toy is a huge squeaky donut, he brings it with him every where and sleeps with it every night!

Tails from home: Foster and adoption success stories...

We changed "Shasta " to "Lacey". Lacey is a very sweet dog with a lot of behavior issues. The vet estimates her age as 2 or 2.5. I really appreciate Lois providing me with another volunteer (Pamela) name and number to help train Lacey. We've had several training sessions with Pamela, but Lacey is a very much work in progress. She was very destructive with indoor and outdoor items (we keep her indoors) and had attacked our other pound dog over food. My intention is to keep Lacey and hopefully continue training with Pamela. I want to thank all of you for your hard work! When I moved up here twenty four years ago the pound was a very different and sad place. But now there are so many great new programs, volunteers and staff in place now. It is very much appreciated!!
