Little Gizmo stole the hearts of everyone visiting him and has already gone for a successful sleepover. He will be adopted this weekend.
Hershey, the rambunctious Chocolate Lab, has a chance to join a family again. Since he will have people with him almost 24/7, this would be a great situation for Hershey. Keep your fingers crossed that this sweet dog will finally find the right home.
Sofia is back in the lobby. You might remember Sofia as the cute black and white teenage kitten with the little black heart on her nose. You might also remember that Sofia is quite the inquisitive cat. Bulletin board push pins are a favorite target and she loves to pull papers out of files. It turned out her entire family was allergic and it wasn’t an easy decision to bring her back. Their health is certainly the most important. Sofia also continues to have problems with her left ear. She’ll see Dr. Joe on Thursday evening.
Kitten Skittles is now in a great, loving home and joins another cat adopted from us a few years ago. Both black kittens will go to a home together once we spay Hershey on Thursday evening. That leaves Koko and Coop to find homes. Koko is a special needs kitten due to a heart murmur. Coop is recuperating from a kitty cold at Anna’s spa. Coop will also see Dr. Joe to make sure his lungs are clear.
A big thank you to everyone bringing in their beloved pets for photos last Sunday. Damien Stark did an amazing job, once again, of capturing the special qualities of the people and their pets. Karen Green manned the printer, selecting the best photo for folks to take home. Colleen Armstrong kept the pets engaged and focused. What a great team! Thanks also to the following for helping with set up and providing goodies for the crowd:
Judy Sutherland, Kathy Pearson, Alice Hachee, Kathryn Bowes, Jan Corbett, James Toole, Wade West, Bob Waunch, Mary Rancourt, Robyn Lowe, Anna Nicoletti and Elyse Van Den Bosch.
Rosario Resort is hosting a Festival of the Trees through December. Our shelter is one of ten local nonprofits decorating trees. The public is invited to buy tickets at $1 each to vote for their favorite tree. At the end of the month, winners will be announced and all will receive the funds their tree generated. The shelter’s tree is adorable and features photos of every animal currently in residence. Thanks to Margot Shaw, those wonderful cat and dog faces encourage folks to take a close look at our delightful tree. Please stop by and vote for your favorite tree. I hope it’s ours! The decorating team included Kathryn Bowes, Elyse Van Den Bosch, Carol Owens and Bob Waunch. Janice Williams and Pam Evans added their input, too.
