Puppies! Lulu, Dora, Leona, and Millie ***Adopted!*** Leona and Millie

On Friday, May 26, we received four puppies that were seized by the local police for neglect. They were about 6 weeks old on arrival, so were born around April 20. They proved to be extremely wormy, with the little runt, Millie, being downright lethargic on arrival. I don’t know if she would’ve lasted another week. 🙁 After two wormings, these four were still expelling worms, and thus needed a third worming just in the course of one week! It looked like they were pooping spaghetti. All were also some degree of underweight. Since these photos were taken the day they arrived, their huge worm bellies I’m afraid are still quite evident, as well as a leanness over the back and hindquarters. They look so much better now!

One week after arrival, the four are all active and playful and looking so much better. Millie took three days to go from just laying around all the time to keeping up with her sisters. They have all put on about 2 pounds apiece in just 7 days. New pictures coming soon that better represent these vibrant, wonderful pups!

All four will be available for adoption when we deem them old enough and well enough, which will likely be about 2 weeks. We don’t know the parentage of these pups, but they look to be at least a good portion terrier, probably some kind of ratting terrier based on their personalities and the way they play. A rough estimate to adult size for these pups is around 30-40 pounds, based on their size vs their age now. They are not going to be large dogs. All four are girls.

These four have become just the sweetest, cuddliest little things! They love laps, and to be held and pet and cuddled. You can play with them for a while, then when they get tired, they will seek out a warm lap and curl up for a nap. They are very social dogs. Usually a dog that is a cuddler as a puppy stays that way as an adult too. They are also all quite smart, even at this young age; they are starting to get the idea that outside is the place to go to the bathroom, if they are given a chance. They are too young and have to go to the bathroom too often to even be able to be housetrained just yet. However, they understand enough already that they don’t use their bed as a toilet. They are wonderful dogs; we staff (as well as some regular volunteers) love them to pieces!

Even if you don’t want to adopt, feel free to stop in during open hours to play with the pups; they do so love attention, and the socialization is good for them!

***Hold for Adoption*** Poptart

Poptart needs a home! He came in to the shelter with his 4 siblings, Alysia, Cassandra, Norah, and Heidi, after their mother was tragically killed. These five were born around April 5, 2017, and will be ready to go when they are at least 8 weeks old. (Appx. May 31) They are all five very sweet, playful, and people friendly. They are wonderful kittens!

Poptart is a handsome little male who is mostly white with the cutest little cream polka-dots.

***Hold for Adoption*** Cassandra

Cassandra needs a home! She came in to the shelter with her 4 siblings, Alysia, Norah, Heidi, and Poptart, after their mother was tragically killed. These five were born around April 5, 2017, and will be ready to go when they are at least 8 weeks old. (Appx. May 31) They are all five very sweet, playful, and people friendly. They are wonderful kittens!

Cassandra is a stunning female blue kitten with white marking like a checkerboard on her face, as well as a white bone shape on her belly, a white bib, and white paws. She is probably the boldest and most outgoing of the kittens; she has a lot of personality for her young age!

Eddie

Eddie needs a new home! He is a very sweet young cat who, while a little shy at first, warms up pretty quickly when he gets some petting. With a person all his own, I think he would be quite the love! Eddie was born around Aug. 2015.

Rosie

Rosie needs a new home! She is a huge (16 lb!) and gentle gal looking for a quiet home to call her home. She gets nervous about too much noise and activity. Rosie was born around 2009.

Fiona

Fiona needs a new home! Fiona is a lovely and exotic looking oriental cross of some sort, possibly an Abyssinian or Oriental shorthair cross. The photo does not do her coat color justice, but it is one of the most unique I have seen. In fact, I never have seen this before. I had to do some research to even figure out what to call that! (I’m hoping to get some pictures in better lighting to truly capture her color.) She looks to be a smoke silver tabby with white accents, where the silver tabby fades to a more chocolate tone on her hind end. She also has the most stunning orange eyes. This cat is very smart (like, problem solving intelligent) with a ton of personality. She knows what she wants, and is very forward in expressing this. She loves to be pet; she is friendly and outgoing with people she knows, or where few people are. If there are too many people or too noisy of a situation, she prefers to go off by herself. She will tell people off if they are being too pushy with her, but not violently; she does no harm, but makes her intentions clear. She also adores catnip. She is endlessly entertaining to watch with catnip. She gets along fine with other cats, but will want to be queen of her territory. As I said, tons of personality. We estimate her to be around 3-4 years old.
