Slow Lately!

Wendy left last weekend while I was away. Sorry for the delayed news!! Her new mom is very excited about having her. Poor Wendy was starting to show some signs of stress so it is great she got to finally go.

Seems my out of town emergency procedure was put into place last Friday. Thanks to Jenny for stepping in at the last minute! I owe you one!

How are things working out with Hector and the wet food? I was told we may be torturing the other cats by opening a can of wet food for him only. I have also been told that sometimes he is not even interested in the wet. We could try simply moistening the dry food we put in his bowl. Let me know what you guys think.

I looked at last year's blog and this time of year is always slow. People are busy with weddings, graduations and family vacations. Hopefully it will pick up soon.

We have alot of kittens in foster care who have reached the age where they can be spayed/neutered and put up for adoption. In a couple of weeks we will bring several down to PetSmart on weekends so they can get some exposure. These guys are real cuties!!

Thanks to Barb and Joan for helping out at the Doggie Fashion Show at King Nummy Trail Campground last weekend. Our dogs always love a day out of the Shelter! Sounds like everyone had fun!

The dog training at PetSmart started the first weekend of this month. When people ask if Shelter dogs ever come to the store let them know that several are there every other Thursday evening and every other Saturday afternoon through the end of July. I'll see that the actual dates are posted for you guys for easy reference.

Please look at the July schedule...there are a few open dates.

Yes, Jess is back...let's hope she doesn't stay long this time!

Three Boys Go - Three Boys Arrive

The big boys, Puss and Boots, went home together last night. They are joining a couple of other cats and an old dog. Their new parents are no strangers at the Shelter as they have adopted two cats and a dog from us in the past. The guys were stuffed into those little cardboard carriers and off they went. They must have been so happy when they were set free at their new home!

Rudy went home earlier this week. His new mom couldn't make it to PetSmart Wednesday evening or next weekend so we picked up Rudy and brought him to the Shelter for her. He went home Tuesday morning.

You are going to love the three new boys. Hector is a quiet little old man who loves attention. He is a gray and white and enjoys a good petting! Stedman is a big old regal black cat. He can be vocal and is quite a gentleman. Toto is really cool! He is an orange and white polydactyl with a big mouth! At the Shelter he often held full fledged conversations with the staff! Watch his big feet, though. Toto hates getting his nails trims and will let you know it. That extra toe must make his paws ultra sensitive.

I am going out of town to Animal Control Officer school next week and two days the following week. Please do your best not to have to cancel your shift. If you do need to cancel between the below dates contact the Shelter at 465-8923 between 8am-4pm. After 4pm and before 9pm please contact PetSmart at 886-7356 and ask for the manager. I will be away the following dates:

Sunday, June 14 at 1:00 pm through Tuesday, June 16 at 6:00pm
