Male, domestic shorthair, orange and white. Born appx. Spring 2018.

Mayah

Mayah is a sweet and cuddly gal who also has plenty of pep and play. She is used to being a pampered house pet. She can’t get enough lap time and belly rubs! She is extremely social and will howl and talk to you. She had a funny little ritual at her former home where she would play on the floor by the bed. When she does settle in for sleep, she enjoys sleeping belly up with her paws in the air. When it’s warm out, she enjoys laying on tile flooring to keep cool.

Mayah loves to chase toys that are thrown for her, and will give them up easily. She is not at all resource possessive with people. She did tell off her doggy housemate at her former home for trying to take her food; she prefers to have her own eating and drinking space if there are other dogs. She also has been known to bury her food, then come back for it later.

Maya, taken May 20, 2019.

Maya loves exercise of any sort. She loves walks, though she can pull. (She would probably prefer to be running!) If off leash, she comes back if you clap your hands. She will wander if you leave her unsupervised outside. (Though will come back if called.) In the winter town, she adores getting time out to play in the snow, and will spend as much time outside as you let. She will build herself a snow nest. She also enjoys eating snow, and will do that over drinking from a water bowl if given the choice. A fenced-in yard would be awesome for Mayah. In the summer, Mayah loves to swim. She also enjoys eating fish.

She has an easygoing temperament with people and animals in general. Mayah is good with strangers; she won’t bark at them, and is very quick to offer her tummy to be rubbed.

Mayah likes cats and loves kittens. She is friendly with other dogs and will generally greet them with a play pose.

Maya, taken May 20, 2019.

Maya can get anxious about getting left alone. Her former owner kenneled her when he needed to leave her. She also used to have a doggy housemate to keep her company. She is afraid of thunder.

Maya, taken May 20, 2019.

Mayah was fully house trained at her previous home. (Though with any dog in a new situation, accidents can happy until a new routine is established.)

Born appx. March 25, 2019.

*Kittens who are not yet old enough at the time of adoption will be spayed/neutered as a part of the adoption fee when they reach an appropriate age. The adopter needs to bring the kitten back to our partnering vet, Riverside Animal Clinic in Redwood Falls. The adoption fee covers their spay/neuter as long as it’s done through this specific vet. (We do not cover the spay/neuter if done at a non-partnering veterinarian.)

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 them: 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!

Hershey, taken May 14, 2019.

She appears to have lost the ends of her ears to frostbite at some point, giving her a kind of jungle cat look.

Hershey, taken May 14, 2019.

Don’t let the big eyes and wild look fool you though! She is actually very affectionate and social, and not at all crazy. (Except maybe for some catnip and good toys…) Come meet her and see for yourself!

Storm

Storm’s kittens are weaned and she is now looking for a home of her own! She is a very sweet young cat who loves what attention she can get.

Storm, taken April 30, 2019.

Born appx. Sept. 2018.

Young mother Storm was surrendered with her 5 kittens. She was taken in as a pregnant stray, but her owner was unable to keep all those kitties long term. He raised them well until weaning age, and now they are all looking for new homes. This person did a good job raising them! They are wonderfully social and all great kittens.

Lovey

Lovey’s kittens have been weaned and now Lovey, who lives up to her name, is looking for a home to call her own!

Lovey, taken Aug. 2, 2019.

Lovey was born appx. Spring 2018.

She gave birth to 5 kittens on March 18, 2019. Kittens will be ready to go to new homes after they turn eight weeks old on May 13, 2019. Lovey will be available at that time as well.

Lovey with her kittens, taken March 22, 2019.

Lovey is a sweet, roundeyed little cat who came to the shelter with five newborn kittens. She is the best kind of mama cat; she is very attentive to her kittens and takes great care of them, but is also very trusting of people and lets us staff handle them as needed. (Though we do mostly just leave her alone to do her thing, there are some necessary care items that we must do to ensure everyone is healthy and thriving.) The kittens are fat and round and healthy thanks to the kind folks who cared for her after she was left behind when her owner moved out.

***Adopted!*** Akira

***Adopted!*** Akira

Akira is a fun loving and robust puppy who is as much up for an adventure as she is for cuddles. If you like terriers, you will love this puppy. She is sturdy and active and very athletic. She can entertain herself chasing around a ball for quite a while! She’ll actually throw it for herself and chase it down. She loves rubbery toys to chew on, though they must be tough toys, as she will quickly destroy wimpy toys. She is full of spunk and sass and likes to be the boss. She’ll even boss around dogs 10x her size. She is also very much about the cuddles. She LOVES to be pet and held. She likes to be in the middle of the action as much as possible.

Akira at about 3 months old, taken May 7, 2019.

As she was a stray, her breed is just a guess, though her temperament is very typical terrier.

She is currently about 7 lbs. and very much still growing. We estimate she will be somewhere around 15-20 lbs. full sized.

Akira at about 3 months old, taken May 7, 2019.

She still has all her puppy teeth, so appears to be less than 4 months old.

She will be spayed as a part of her adoption fee. She will also be up to date on her vaccines. Akira has been wormed, including preventatives for giardia and coccidia. She has also been treated with a topical flea/mite preventative (Revolution.)

Akira at about 3 months old, taken May 7, 2019.

If you are interested in adopting Akira, please contact the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else feel free to stop in and meet her, no appointment necessary, M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, we welcome visitors during open hours to play with the critters!
