"BU"-- Rest In Peace
Bu, our shelter cat, went across the rainbow bridge Monday May 22 from cancer.
Bu greeted visitors with love and playfulness, helped at the front desk with paperwork, let the incoming pets know it was going to be okay, and tested the dogs for cat-friendliness.
But most of all Bu was friend, family & coworker to shelter employees and volunteers.
Bu is short for Shinobu which means to endure.
He will be missed and will endure in our hearts!
Bu was 17 years old.
"TOLLER"-Pit Bull Terrier mix
1 year Male 49 lbs
I'm a sweet boy with a great smile.
I'm just 1-year-old and still very much a puppy.
I'm a bit unsure of myself since the shelter is new to me.
I'll open up and become a playful pup once I'm comfortable. Then you'll see that great smile of mine.
I'm cautious with men. Some men I love and some men make me nervous.
I have flea dermatitis - that's a flea allergy. I'll need to be on flea preventative to make sure I don't get itchy.
p.s. No chickens in my new family please, unless they're for my dinner.

I'm a very laid-back cat who keeps to myself most of the time.

I'm good with other cats as I'm used to being with them.
You see, my two brothers and I came here because our owner passed away.
My brothers have been adopted and I'd really love a new home too.
I'm okay with dogs in my new family, but they need to leave me alone.
I don't want to be a small child's cat. I don't like to be picked up and carried around.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
ADOPT A PET
Dog Collars--Medium-sized collars are the most used. Hatfield Control Collars (available at Walmart) are a favorite. Otherwise metal clasps are preferred for strength.
Leashes--strong leashes are preferred.
Toys--Especially strong dog toys like Kong, Orka, Nylabones. And feathered toys for the cats.
Kitty Litter--basic clay, not the more expensive scoopable or clumping
Food--Dog/Puppy & Cat/Kitten dry or canned food.
Dawn Dish Soap - the original kind
Tweezers--with strong points
Aluminum Cans for Recycling--the money is used for the shelter animal medical fund.
Gas Gift Cards--Helps to offset costs of transferring unadopted pets to other adoption agencies.
Money--always useful for medical needs for injured/sick pets, spaying & neutering, supplies, building updates & maintenance.
HELP OUR MEDICAL FUND:
Donate Steel and Aluminum Cans
Not only can you donate aluminum cans for recycling, you can now DONATE STEEL CANS too!
All we ask is that you rinse out the steel cans really well (we don't want to encourage not-so-adoptable critters to hang out around the shelter) and place them in a separate bag from the aluminum cans.
Drop both types of cans (remember, in separate bags) in the large labeled bin that is on the east side of the shelter - that's to your left when facing the shelter's front door.
Thanks for helping with our four-legged friends' medical needs!

NOT available for adoption
You'll find me literally hanging out in the front lobby or in the shelter director's office (I'm her kitty).
I have a silly personality and you'll find me about anywhere.
Sometimes I'll be taking a nap on the floor and you'll have to step around me.
Sometimes I'll be visiting with the other cats & kittens....usually playing with them through the top of their cages.
And sometimes I'll be "helping" at the desk.
