Isaac is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting January 7, 2018

Isaac is a one year old high-energy Australian Cattle Dog who will do excellent in an active home. Isaac is very smart and a quick learner, but needs a dedicated owner who can help Isaac channel his energy and focus. Isaac enjoys long hikes and runs, and any active dog sport (we hear he’s becoming a champ at agility,) but will also happily snuggle with you at the end of a busy day. Since Isaac likes to live life at full speed, cats and other small critters are not very fond of him. He might do best as an only dog as he can be dog reactive, mostly because he doesn’t understand how to slow down and politely interact with other dogs. If you are looking for a hiking buddy or jogging partner, come meet Isaac!

Bella and Sean are our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting December 11, 2017

These two are a bonded pair and as sweet as they come. Bella is a senior Mastiff, very strong but also very gentle. Sean is a Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix. Both are friendly and happy, and definite volunteer favorites. They came in because their people are older and felt they could no longer give Bella and Sean all the exercise they need. The dogs love the walks and play time they get at the shelter and have bonded quickly with all the volunteers.

Adopted: Hermes is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pet of the Week Starting December 4, 2017

Hermes is a quiet guy, but don’t underestimate him. He’s a senior cat whose life experiences have given him a keen eye for observation. Like a sentinel standing guard, he surveys his surroundings and picks up on everything going on around him. (When he isn’t napping, of course.) This gentleman enjoys human interaction, but isn’t comfortable with other felines. That may change as he gets used to the other cats, or it may not – either way is okay for this guy. He’ll be watching over the cat room until he finds a forever home to stand sentry over.

 

Adopted – Scarlet is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pet of the Week Starting November 27, 2017

It’s hard to believe this girl was a stray. She is about two years old and totally lovable and goofy. Scarlet will need a fully fenced yard (as a bloodhound, she follows her nose) but other than that should do well in any home.

Nora is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pet of the Week Starting November 6, 2017

Nora came in earlier this year needing surgery on both knees.  So after several weeks at the shelter we sent her off to the vet and then to a foster home, where she lived for six months last year.  Her foster mom tells us that Nora adores people. Although she seemed very high strung at first, once she settled in she wanted only to be around her person, observing things or asking for belly rubs. Nora is seven and, because of her knees, doesn’t really need walks (although she does enjoy them and is learning to walk on a leash.) She’s also content to wander around a yard. She has some separation anxiety (not surprising since she was mostly chained up for most of her life) and she hasn’t been properly socialized with other dogs, so she’ll do best in a home where she is the only pet, but she will give you as much love as a whole pack of dogs. Nora has an ardent fan club at the shelter, eager to show you her affectionate personality.

Hoss is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week Starting October 30, 2017

This happy six and half year old Lab mix is always raring to go for long walks, runs, or play time with our volunteers. We’ve found out that Hoss has separation anxiety and may do best in a home where his people are around most of the time. He will need a fenced yard and a home without kitties.

Adopted: Pinky is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week Starting

 October 16, 2017

This Lab/Pit girl was adopted out for almost a year, but came back after she became aggressive to the other dog in the house when human food – and only human food – was present.   She spent some time at Hammond Kennels with trainer Eva Wiseman and is back and ready to find a new home. The volunteers agree she’s friendly, easy to walk, and an all-round sweetheart. She is also happy to share her home with cats.
