A handsome and sweet dog is now in house. Evan is a mix of some herding breed with maybe a bit of pit. He’s a nice medium sized dog with black spots and cute, folded, black ears. Kt reports he’s very smart and knows quite a few commands. He needs work on jumping up and being ‘mouthy.’ We think he may have been encouraged to do this by his former person who has some major problems ahead. Evan plays well with other dogs and did well at the public dog park.
Brothers, Toby and Rascal have gone to a home together. We knew orange tabby Toby would be very adoptable but black and white tuxedo Rascal would be problematic due to his more elusive nature. The boys are joining a home very much like the one they were raised in – a mature, single person with a quieter lifestyle. Since Rascal loves being outside so much, he will have the opportunity to spend time with the sheep on the farm or join Toby inside near the fire. What a huge relief that both went together.
Quincy didn’t take too long to find the perfect family. This friendly brown tabby was still in the introduction process in cat room one when he charmed a family recently losing their beloved cat. Reports from his new family indicate he made himself at home right away and makes them chuckle when he drinks water. Quincy is one of those cats that dip a paw into the water then lap it off the paw. It is pretty cute to see them do that. His sister, April, is slowly adapting to the community room and loves to be petted. It doesn’t take too long and she starts drooling with happiness.
Old boy, Forbes, seems to have decided he likes his bed near the kitchen so we didn’t move him into a cat room. Forbes isn’t underfoot like Iggy, who constantly begs for more canned food.
A stray cat came to us yesterday having been adopted from us as a kitten a few years ago. Somehow he ended up at the top of Buck Mountain and was featured in a Facebook post as a possibility for someone also missing a tuxedo cat. We’re working on the series of events that sent him from one family to another and then another. He’s a super friendly and handsome cat so if no one wants to take responsibility for him, I know we can find him a good home.
A huge thank you to everyone voting for the shelter’s tree at Rosario’s Festival of Trees. With Rosario matching our $1 votes, we received a check for over $800. A lovely bonus for the shelter.
