Cats and kittens looking for forever homes! Cat and kitten adoptions are $60. That includes cat IMG_3846vaccines and the spay/neuter. That is a very good price and you don’t have to worry about those important things! If the kitten is too young for the spay/neuter, we will still take care of it when they are old enough at one of our vets in town. Please contact us if you are looking for a forever friend!

10622739_778559205540802_5452457240351608871_nHeidi’s pups have arrived! We have 8 beautiful puppies. Born August 29th and Mama was a champ. There are 5 black puppies (2 boys and 3 girls) and 3 blonde (2 boys and 1 girl). At this stage, they look like tiny Black and Yellow Labrador Retrievers but we can’t say for sure. Puppies will be ready for adoption near the end of October. Please let us know if you are interested in adopting a puppy. Or just enjoy the cuteness! We will post weekly photos to enjoy! 

IMG_3575Taco is a very fun and active little guy who likes to play with toys and chase a ball. Taco is not a huge fan of the big dogs (feels like he has to be the tough guy), but he is fine with the other small dogs and cats in his foster home. Taco is 3-1/2 years old, house trained, neutered and vaccinated.

 

10519187_769146193148770_3669735124601498935_oAldo is 5 years old, but still high energy, so would love a large fenced yard. We think he’s a German shepherd/border collie mix and is a very handsome boy. Aldo loves to play fetch and could play all day, or at least until you wear out! He would like to be the only male dog, but this may change as he was just neutered on 8/1. Aldo knows some commands and is an obedient boy. He’d be a great addition to an active family with older children. Aldo needs a home where he will get lots of attention, affection and activity.

10360189_743595422370514_4695750446271711740_nRaja needs a home. She was adopted through us but it has not worked out in her home and so we are trying to find her a better situation. Raja is an Australian Shepherd cross and is smart and active. Raja loves her people and is currently living with an older child. She is fine with big dogs but will chase small dogs and cats. Raja would love an active family with a fenced yard and no small pets. She has great house manners and can be trusted to be left alone in a home when her people are away. Raja is 2 years old, spayed, vaccinated, dog-door trained and house trained. Please let us know if Raja is the forever dog for you!

 

IMG_3836Lucky is a very sweet boy. His story is not a very lucky one but despite his hardships, he has continued to be a very kind and loving boy. Lucky was found as a stray on the highway and had injuries that appeared to be sustained from jumping out of a moving vehicle or possible being hit by a vehicle. We will never really know what happened to him. By the time he was taken into our care, his injuries had healed in the best way his body could manage. We brought Lucky to WSU and had him evaluated by their team. Lucky’s front left leg has healed incorrectly and, unfortunately, repairing the elbow does not appear to be an option. Lucky can walk on the leg but has limited range of motion and has some pain in that leg. His pain is currently being managed by pain supplements and joint supplements for arthritis. Lucky likes to go for walks but tires easily so will be prescribed limited exercise for the rest of his days. If his pain were to become worse and not manageable by medication, WSU did suggest amputation of the front left leg. It was not recommended at this time – only if his condition worsens. Lucky is in a foster home with other dogs and his foster mom describes him as incredibly good-natured dog. He just loves people. His foster people take him out and about to new situations quite a bit and he is just happy wherever he goes. He gets along well with the resident dogs. We do not know about cats but believe he would chase a cat that runs. Lucky is about 2 years old, house-trained, neutered and vaccinated. Lucky is looking for a loving home that will continue to care for his needs and give him the love and joy he deserves.
