August 1st at the shelter


A sweet, mature Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Chocolate Lab mix has joined our canine bunch.  Wilson has adjusted nicely to being with us even though we have him on a diet. He’s met Penny and Buddy but it’s a bit too much energy to have all 3 out at the same time.  Penny and Buddy are fine together; Penny and Wilson are fine together, too. Wilson is about 10 and still very active.  

The two very nice strays were never claimed so we’ll give them a good home until they find a permanent one.  Elsie is one mellow cat.  She has quite an exotic look – beautiful tabby markings, long and lean.  She adapted immediately to the second cat room and doesn’t seem to be fazed by the other cats or by dogs.  Elsie will make a great family companion and you’ll notice she loves to greet when folks visit.  

Angie is a gray tuxedo and also has a sweet, friendly personality.  She may be a bit older but we’ll have more information on her when Dr. Joe sees her Monday.  We think she gets along well with dogs and kids.

Only Liam and Cyrus remain and we’re surprised these two haven’t been scooped up.  Liam is one laid back boy and let’s smaller Cyrus jump all over him.  They give our visitors hours of entertainment.  The kittens will be featured at Islanders Bank today and next week unless they’re adopted.

Islanders Bank is, once again, featuring the shelter as the non profit of the month.  We’re grateful for the opportunity to showcase our wonderfully adoptable cats to new folks. We understand the staff and customers really enjoy having ‘cats at the bank month.’  If the kittens are adopted, Earl Grey will have bank duty followed by Sucia.  Since Sucia is such an escape artist, we wonder if he’ll try to open the safe.  He does love those lever handles!
