March 30th update

We knew this beautiful and sweet dog wouldn’t be with us long.  Remy, the Redbone Coonhound, has joined a family with an 8 year old Redbone Coonhound named Copper.  As they met, Remy and Copper acted like they were old friends.  We had more emails of interest for Remy than any other dog.  You don’t see many of his breed in our area.

A shy, mature black and white tuxedo named Claudia is our latest addition.  She is about 15 years old and her person was no longer able to care for her due to illness.  Claudia enjoys pets and certainly doesn’t look her age.  She’ll get her check up with Dr. Joe on Tuesday evening then will join the rest of the cats in a community room.

Earl Grey has finally found a home.  He will leave today and will be the only cat in his new home.  This should suit him just fine so he can soak up all the attention and not have to share with other felines.  It’s amazing how healthy he is now after proper treatment and good care.  There were times we weren’t sure he would make it but he rallied and blossomed into one handsome guy.

For two weeks we tried to get enough nutrition in fluffy Cady to keep her going.  Although she seemed happy, we knew she was suffering from multiple organ failure.  Cady was one of those unassuming cats in the first cat room and her sweet personality will be missed.

Tomorrow is the last day to purchase a dog license for 2015 at the regular rate.  Late fees will apply starting on Wednesday.  If you have friends who haven’t licensed their dogs yet, save them a few bucks by offering a reminder.  Annual licenses are required by San Juan County.
