Jethro’s Cheeky Diary: the Power of Positive Thinking

Posted on Thursday, May 2nd

Jethro’s Cheeky Diary: the Power of Positive Thinking When Jethro came to us as a hurricane refugee, he was a truly sad kitty. He struggled to feel at home in the shelter, and although it was comfy and he got to participate in our Purrkids program (for shy, depressed or less social kitties who need extra attention), he still seemed so sad. Worse, he gained weight. LOTS of weight; to the point where he had difficulty moving around. We knew focused attention, a weight-loss supervisor and a real, loving home was what he needed. It took awhile, but we finally found Jethro's human hero in our Fabulous Foster, Linda H.… READ MORE >

There is something about Noel

Posted on Thursday, March 12th

A Good Samaritan came across Noel roaming in a desolate area with only an abandoned camper shell for shelter. Noel was taken to Animal Control with the hope that an owner would reclaim her.

Her foster mom could no longer care for her and at the time the cat shelter was very full, so Josephine… READ MORE >

Posted on Monday, March 31st

UPDATE: Pat Benatar has been adopted, the other 5 are still waiting. A few months ago, we were contacted about a litter of eight starving and emaciated pit mix puppies living outside in filth. We knew placing them would be a challenge, but we accepted the challenge anyway! See the video of their arrival at the dog shelter below. A few of our wonderful foster homes took care of the eight puppies during multiple mite treatments and nursed them back to health. These dogs are extremely loving and loyal. Most have learned to walk on a leash and sit and… READ MORE >
