Featured Pet Of The Week

My name is "STORM".

I'm a loving boy who is very affectionate.
The name "Storm" does not reflect my personality. I'll be a great new family member to share the holidays with.
I'm a handsome Boxer mix that loves to play fetch with tennis balls.
I really enjoy squeaky toys too. But you'll need to buy sturdy ones as I look for what is squeaking.
I am very clean in my kennel and appear to be house-trained.
I sit nicely and am ready for a walk when you leash me.
Just be sure to let me know what you want from me so I don't lead you everywhere as I'm still learning how to walk beside you on a leash.
I weigh 46 lbs. but it might seem like more if I'm pulling on my leash.
I will do best without cats or other small animals in the household.
I seem to not like the other male dogs at the shelter, but that could change after I'm neutered. I'm better with female dogs.
Bring your other dog(s) to meet me so we can be sure before you adopt me.
I'm a 4-year-old who likes to have things set up comfortably and prefers an indoor home.
At the shelter, I demand a thick, comfy blanket in my kennel.
I also like bones to chew on to keep me busy.
The staff know when I'm not satisfied with the service here because I stop keeping my kennel clean.

**I'm NEUTERED and up-to-date on vaccinations. My adoption fee is $55.
I will return to the Shelter Thursday, 12/13 after my neuter appointment!**

"AMELIA" - Calico Short-Hair - SPAYED
5-7 yrs   Female

I'm a lap cat, so adopt me and we'll keep each other warm this winter.
We can nuzzle our faces against each other too. I enjoy that.
I'm a delightful lady who would really love a home to lounge around in.
I appear to have had a home once and would love to have one again.
You might find me lounging in the shelter lobby as I do not like being in my cage.
If you do find me in my cage, I might come off as moody until my cage door opens.
I appear to be spayed, but a vet needs to verify that.
So, you'll still prepay for my spay. If the doctor says I am spayed, you will receive your money back.
I'm not fond of being carried, so I'm probably not used to being around young children.
I'm not fond of dogs either. I will hiss or run away.
I would be okay with dogs that would leave me alone or if I have my own space where they can't follow me.
Come in and visit me and you'll find out why I'm a favorite of one of the volunteers.
You'll probably find me in the shelter director's office. I've decided that I like to help her with paperwork.

You won't regret adopting both of us because we're a hoot.
We're really playful and will include you in our games.

Sometimes you'll find me snoozing in my cozy bed on the counter...I love a good massage, so feel free to spoil me!
I'm a laid back guy, so I'm pretty good at putting people and pets at ease. I'm also helping to "cat-test" other animals.

I am available for adoption to an approved indoor-only home. Maybe even to a interested nursing home!?
I am very loved here and the shelter staff and director will all have to approve my adoption.

I'm neutered and up-to-date on my vaccinations.

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!

"BU"
   

IN MEMORY

"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.
