May 25th 2014: Dobber has been with us for quite a while now and is still patiently waiting for a home to call his own. Dobber is a lovely boy who has become quite the sweetheart while being at the shelter. He is very playful and is always up for a chase. Past experience has taught us that he would do best in a home without other cats has be does have a tendency to play a little too rough with them. He also does not do well around rabbits, for the same reasons.
Dobber would do best in a home where he gets plenty of play/social time with people, plenty of toys and cuddles.
Dobber is a a fantastic cat who we have all grown quite fond of over the months he has been with us. He is part of our Adopt-A-Thon which means his adoption feed has been reduced to $34.60.

Jan 1st 2014: Happy New Years Everyone!
Yes, we survived another year with only a few scrapes and bruises. Nice work!
2013 was quite a year at the shelter. A year filled with adoptions, rescues, fostering, story telling, laughs, hard work and a smidge of insanity.
A lot of animals came through the shelters doors this year. A variety of animals from domestic to wild. I personally had the pleasure to hold and play with baby possums and rabbits (wild). I got see a hawk up close, an owl and several other birds up close and personal. I had raccoon babies that hissed and growled while I hugged every one of them (I don't recommend you just go out and start hugging wildlife all willie nillie *lol*) and got to learn a few things.
The shelter worked hard this year to save as many animals as they could. Vet checks, spay/neuter, operations on legs/eyes and more. Many of the animals that came to us that we could not adopt out were sent to rescues, adopted by staff/volunteers and by vet clinic staff. We owe a big thank you to many folks who helped give homes, time, patience, money and love to those animals. Those people/rescues that continue to help us and the animals.
I personally would like to thank all of you for sticking with us. To those who share our posts to help our animals find homes to call their own. To those who have adopted from us that share their pictures and stories. To those who take the time to volunteer at the shelter. To those who foster those who need that extra bit of time and care. To those who donate, support, adopt, spread the word, stick by us, help us, educate the public and over all for just being awesome individuals.
I appreciate it. The shelter appreciates it.
Here is to making 2014 a great year for the shelter and it's animals!
Here is just some of the animals that have been adopted in 2013 from us, over 200! That doesn't even include the animals that didn't even make it up for adoption or on petfinder. I lost count of the number of animals that went to rescue or adopted in house.
And I should also mention, those wild animals I got to spend time with. Many, if not most, went to Wildlife Rehabilitation Centers. The shelter works very hard to save wildlife just as much as they do domestic animals
