Dogs:
We’ve contacted our Shelter Partners at Whatcom and Skagit Humane to see if they need help with dog transfers.
Cats:
Basically, we’ve been dealing with the feral cat situation at Obstruction Pass.  To date, we’ve taken in 12 and re-homed 6.  What wonderful folks to take in and care for a cat that’s not even touchable.  Maybe with lots of patience and a significant amount of time, these beautiful cats will learn to trust their humans.  We still need more help finding suitable barns, garden sheds or out buildings.  Please spread the word.

One of the ferals did escape the new ‘catio’ and showed us the weak spot in the construction.  Phil has since modified that escape route so we’re comfortable we won’t have any additional escapees.  We’ve tried to recapture the cat but no luck so far. He’s a short haired, black and white tuxedo if you happen to see him dart into the trees behind the shelter.

No adoptions to report but we have facilitated the return of a cat reported lost at the end of September.  The cat showed up as a stray at the home of three young women.  Although they looked for lost signs in their area, the cat had travelled well beyond its home territory.  They’ve cared for the cat all this time and called to see about getting her spayed.  We suggested, since she came to them as a stray, that the cat be brought in for a microchip check.  It turns out the cat was adopted from us and her people were distraught when she disappeared.  This situation has been difficult for all concerned.  Both parties indicated they wanted to do what was best for the cat.
