Tyrion Rex

Tyrion is 113 lbs of friendliness looking for a home who doesn’t mind a pony sized dog. 🙂

Tyrion Rex, taken June 7, 2019.

He is only two years old, so he does still have a bit of filling out to do. We expect him to put on a little more weight before he’s fully grown.

Tyrion Rex is a very happy dog. Taken June 7, 2019.

He loves everybody! Every stranger is a potential new friend. He is friendly with other dogs, cats, and even chickens. If a cat swipes at him, he backs down. When he met a little terrier mix who growled at him, Tyrion’s response was to leave him alone. He loves children, though due to his huge size, he may unintentionally knock small children down.

Tyrion Rex loves his exercise. Taken June 7, 2019.

Tyrion is an active young dog who still has some puppy energy to him. He is surprisingly easygoing on a leash; he pulls a little, but gives quite readily, and comes to your side if you call him. He does love his walks! He is very eager to listen and to please, especially if a treat’s involved. He’ll do anything for a treat!

Tyrion Rex knows how to sit quite well, taken June 7, 2019.

He has already learned “sit” and “kennel up”. He is learning not to jump up on people, but if he gets really excited, he wants to put his paws up on your shoulders. He is taller than most people when he does that!

Tyrion comes so nicely if you call to him, especially if you have a treat! Taken June 7, 2019.

Tyrion is not at all food or toy possessive. He is happy to share. He just wants to get along with everyone.

“Is that a TREAT???” Tyrion Rex, taken June 7, 2019.

He was born in early 2017.

The owners do not know what kind of a dog he is, but he looks like he could be an Anatolian shepherd or cross.

Tyrion will be neutered and updated on his vaccines as a part of his adoption fee. He has also been wormed, and treated with a topical flea/tick preventative (Vectra 3D).

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853. Feel free to stop in and meet him anytime the shelter is open, no appointment necessary: M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, stop in and visit the dogs anyway; play with them, train them, give them a walk. The love it!

Thackery Binx

Thackery Binx is a very sweet and lovey house cat who is looking for a new home to call his own. He gets along fine with other cats as well as dogs. (The little dog he was tested with did not phase him.) He enjoys the pampered life; he has no interest in venturing outdoors.

Thackery is about 4 years old. He is neutered and front declawed.

Thackery Binx, taken 06/05/2019.

He will be updated on his vaccines as a part of his adoption fee. He has also received dewormings, been treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), tested negative for feline leukemia, and has had a medicated/antifungal bath.

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, no appointment necessary, and meet him: M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, you are welcome to come play with the kitties and help socialize them!

Brix, Nero, Moscato, and Malo

These four little kittens were found in a windowell. (That’s the second time this year a feral mother has left her kittens in someone’s windowell! And no, these were not the same homes.) The finders were unable to locate their mother. However, Jemma, who is nursing her own four, was quite willing to take on these as well. She is back from foster and at the shelter just for that job. These kittens are about at that age that they can start to eat on their own, so should hopefully not be too taxing on Jemma.

Born appx. May 1, 2019. Ready to go after June 19, 2019.

Many of you who follow the goings on at the shelter I’m sure remember Jemma, the lovely, sweet calico cat who has been through so much over the last two months!

Jemma, taken April 2, 2019.

She was found hit by a car, which meant the eventual amputation of her tail. (Thanks again to everyone who helped to defray the cost of that surgery!) She’d had ear mites for so long that her ears were horribly infected and painful. We got that fixed up too. On top of that, she was discovered to have a rotten tooth which needed extracting. Due to tooth extractions being so dirty, the vet told us she couldn’t be spayed for at least three weeks after.

Find her full story here:
http://redwoodareaanimalshelter.com/2019/03/17/found-cat-jemma/

Well, as her spay date approached, it became apparent that Jemma was, in fact, pregnant. We were all amazed to learn that all her unborn kittens had survived their mother being hit by a car, having an amputation, and a tooth extraction! Four healthy kittens were born into foster two weeks ago.
