Peaches

Meet Peaches! Peaches is a lovable, squeezable, fuzzy giant of a dog who adores being cuddled. She is 110 pounds. We were told by the people that surrendered her that she is a golden retriever/ Great Pyrenees mix, and was born appx. February of 2016. She has lived with children and loved to sleep with them at night. However, we were told she can get rather rambunctious and accidentally knock over very small children. She really doesn’t mean it; there’s just a lot of her and she gets so excited when people want to give her love! She was kept mostly as an outdoor dog and loves being outside. She adores playing in the snow, and doesn’t like to be indoors too much. She needs to be able to run and get a lot of exercise. She was kept on a farm at her previous home and never roamed. She is cautious of new dogs, and can get nervous and nippy. She would likely be best as an only dog, though she did live with her brother, whom she got along great with. She can also be nippy with cats.

As a part of her adoption fee, Peaches come spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, wormed, and treated with a topical flea/tick preventative. She has also been professionally bathed and groomed. (She has a bit more feathering when her coat grows out.)

Morris right after his amputation, taken Sept. 20, 2018.

Morris originally came to our shelter back in September with a badly mangled and infected leg, which the vets said had been that way for up to a year. Poor cat was in pain for some time! It was a relief for him to get that leg amputated, as it was far beyond repair. Through it all he has remained amicable, never once being cross with anybody. He is a little shy of hands at first; he acts like he’s used to getting hit. 🙁 But once he realizes you mean well, oh how he loves to be pet. He’ll let you pet him for as long as you are willing. It is so rewarding to gain his trust enough to get to hear his soft little purr get going! Having only three legs doesn’t slow him down either; he can still jump up onto the high perches just as well as the other cats. He gets along great with other cats, and seems tolerant of dogs. Morris is a young adult, probably just a few years old.

As a part of the adoption fee, he comes neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, wormed, preventatively treated for coccidia and giardia, tested negative for feline leukemia, having had a negative fecal, having had an antifungal bath, and having been treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.)

If you are interested in adopting Morris, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or stop in during open hours, M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop on by and play with the critters; they do so enjoy it! No appointments necessary.

***Pregnant- Hold until Puppies Weaned*** Camilla

Note: Not available for adoption at this time. We have confirmed via ultrasound that Camilla is pregnant. She will be allowed to have her pups here at the shelter (Due appx. April 25), then will be ready for a new home after her pups are weaned and she is spayed.

Camilla

Camilla was recently surrendered to our shelter, with the high likelihood of having been bred by the intact beagle mix she was housed with. She will need a home when her pups are weaned.

Update March 28, 2018: Confirmed pregnant with 5-6 pups.

Camilla is a chihuahua mix that was originally from Texas, born on June 10, 2017. She looks like she is likely a mix of many different breeds, too many to truly try to decide what she is other than plain adorable. She weighs in at 16 pounds. She is super docile, sweet, and quiet. She loves to follow people around and be with people as much as possible. She loves to be pet and held too. She is even good about having her nails trimmed. She is friendly with other dogs and with cats, as well as with any person she’s ever met. She really is a great little dog!

When she is ready for a new home, she will be spayed and up to date on her vaccinations as a part of her adoption fee. She will also have been wormed, bathed, and treated topically with a flea/tick preventative.

Artemis

Artemis is looking for a home! No one came to claim him, so now this friendly fellow is looking for a new family. He came in with a badly broken leg. He is so much happier now after he had surgery to have it removed, thus removing his constant source of pain. He actually moves around now rather than just laying around most of the time. He is a snowshoe flamepoint Siamese cross. (His front legs are white, and he has some white on his muzzle. They will become more pronounced as he ages and his orange points darken.) He is about 6 months old. Artemis is super sweet! He is a very affectionate kitty.

His adoption fee includes his neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, a negative feline leukemia test, wormings, a fecal float to check for intestinal parasites, and topical flea/mite preventative (Revolution.) If you are interested in adopting him, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853 or stop in during open hours. (M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1) Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, you are always welcome to stop in and play with the critters during open hours, no appointment necessary.
