I am proud of where I live. There are great people who work at the shelter, wanting only the best for myself and other four legged friends who live here. This open admission shelter cannot pick and choose what acquaintances come to live with me. Unlike private shelters, we take in all
dogs and cats regardless of
their behavior or medical condition. What that means is the awesome staff tries
to save all medically treatable and behaviorally rehabilitative animals that
come to stay until their forever home is found. About two or three challenged animals
come in per week along with pets who are just like me- a cat without a family. Some
of the issues I have seen range from normal aging issues to being hit by a car,
being heartworm positive, eye problems or kittens being removed from their
mothers. I have seen it all in my time living here. My friends are given lots
of love and time to heal while they wait for their time to be adopted. Isabella
Our budget to care for my fellow cats and dogs comes completely from our wonderful donors and grants. My buddies are now living at the shelter through no fault of their own. Sometimes my new friends are very scared and confused so I hang out with them and show them the ropes. The staff works hard to help us look forward to a new life with lots of love, positive attention and training to be the best pet possible. Over time our broken hearts and loneliness are mended as our staff has a special way with woofs and meows. Everyday of the week, staff is at the shelter filling our water and food dishes, walking those noisy dogs and making sure we are all ok. We are excited to see them each morning and enjoy the quiet when they leave for the night.
My fellow animals and me too, are longing to find a person of our own. We are waiting for someone to love as we promise a lifetime of loyalty and love. Please stop by and visit us in person or see our smiling faces on the Facebook page.
There are all kinds of dogs and cats here right now, kittens and more mature cats and dogs. We have lots of kittens- newborns and toddlers now sharing space. Boy are they a lot of work for the staff and foster parents! Every two hours someone is bottle feeding these puffs of fur. The staff gets really excited when the kittens open their eyes for the first time. The puffs of fur soon learn how to use their legs and boy what trouble they can get into. Exploring all the nooks and crannies of the rooms, I have to watch out where step. I sometimes have to plug my ears when the kittens learn they have voices. This is when I go into one of the staff offices for an extra scratch around my ears and quiet relaxing time. People can stop by the shelter to give me a pat on the head when I am in the lobby. The staff will help tell you how best to pet me and my fellow playmates.
