Shelter Dog Finds Work as a Police Dog
Moose arrived at our shelter as a stray. After tracking his microchip we discovered that he had been bounced around to multiple homes & nobody was coming to claim him. Moose hated being at the shelter & his cage presence turned people off. After being evaluated by a trainer, it was clear that Moose was a very good boy with excellent ball drive! Volunteers worked to keep Moose mentally stimulated & then an amazing opportunity came up. A prison was looking for a dog to do detection work. We submitted Moose & he was selected to begin training! Moose is now a working dog & loving his life! We believe shelter pets can do anything & Moose is proof of that!
Cage Free Cat Room
We are thrilled to announce that we have converted one of our adoptable rooms into a cage free environment for our cats! This room is equipped with hammocks, cat trees & lots of comfy lounging spots for our kitties to enjoy! There are bright, sunny windows & some strategically placed bird feeders outside to provide our cats with plenty of stimulation. The cats absolutely love this new environment & potential adopters love getting to see our cats’ personalities shining through! Stop by & see how happily our cats are living in their free roaming area!
As a non-profit organization, we could not keep our shelter open without the help of our generous Partners. Each of these businesses provides valuable services to the Shelter. From organizing an event or taking care of our animals and the shelter grounds, each of these Partners plays a special role in helping us with our mission of caring for and finding ‘furever’ homes for our animals.
