Handsome hound Luke is officially adopted and will head to his new home on Saturday. He’s already been introduced to the horse on the property and will have a huge fenced orchard to romp in. There’s also another older dog in the home and the two of them get along just fine. For a dog not happy when alone, this is a wonderful opportunity to have dog savvy people adopt Luke.
Mika is spending time in foster care with one of our wonderful volunteers. As great as our shelter is, for some dogs just being with us for a long time is frustrating. Mika has enough herding breed in her mix that she really needs a job to do. We’ve had a couple of folks interested in her but the logistics of getting to Orcas are a bit of a problem. Mika is a great dog and responds well to training. She would definitely do well at agility.
Little guy Sam, the 12 year old Chihuahua, has settled in much better now he’s neutered. He’s certainly active and will be a good companion for the right person for years ahead.
The kitten room is active with the 5 kittens born on April 21st. Their mom is feral and we normally wouldn’t separate the babes from mom this early but they needed to be socialized. Since all were lapping and eating on their own, we knew they would thrive in the kitten room. They’ve had lots of visitors and are enjoying all kinds of toys plus chasing each other. We’ve received several adoption requests for them already. Another batch of 6 kittens may be arriving soon from our partner on Whidbey Island. They’re about 10 – 14 days younger than our little gang.
We hope you’ll visit and enjoy play time with:
Dickens – white with buff spots; male
Amelia – fluffy white with buff tail and ears; female
Murphy Gray – pastel gray tortoiseshell; female
Wallace – orange tabby; male
Maurice – brown and black tabby; male
Greeter cat Evie has gone to a wonderful home. Since the couple lives in a rental, they were required to pay a $350 pet deposit in order to have her. This is in addition to the normal cleaning/damage deposit. At least, the landlord is letting them pay it off a month at a time. Evie is such a great cat, it was worth it for the couple to extend themselves financially in order to give her a home.
