Giselle is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, 94.9 The Bridge, Warrenton Kia, and

HITS 94.3 KRKZ Pet of the Week Starting November 4, 2018

The petite and elegant Giselle possesses a somewhat timid and loving personality. As she feels safe in your presence, the true quality of this lovely creature is exposed. Overusing the word `elegant` is too easy in describing Giselle as she simply is ELEGANT. Giselle has a very gentle and loving quality and will become a devoted companion. Giselle is currently greeting customers at Petco.

Brandy is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, 94.9 The Bridge, Warrenton Kia, and

HITS 94.3 KRKZ Pet of the Week Starting October 28, 2018

Brandy is an 8-year old distinguished bronze and white beauty. She is an American Pit Bull Terrier who is very friendly and engaging with people but would prefer to be the only pet in your home. Brandy enjoys sauntering around the play yard then wandering through trails and grasses for a walk – she also happily enjoys snacks in exchange for sitting and laying down. Brandy has the sparkling golden eyes of a youthful dog eager to experience life.

Lucky is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, 94.9 The Bridge, Warrenton Kia, and

HITS 94.3 KRKZ Pet of the Week Starting October 14, 2018

Lucky is an eleven year old female pit bull who came to the shelter because her owner could no longer care for her. Lucky had some skin issues when she first came in; she patiently tolerated daily medicated baths  and was an absolute doll in the car on several trips to a specialist in Portland. Lucky is a favorite with the volunteers and you may see her hanging out in the shelter manager’s office during the day. She will need a fully fenced yard.

Adopted: Rosita is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, 94.9 The Bridge, Warrenton Kia, and HITS 94.3 KRKZ Pet of the Week Starting October 7, 2018

Rosita’s foster mom, Donna, gave her a glowing review:

“A most beautiful mom to her two kittens, Jack and Jill. When we brought them home to foster the kittens were one week old. We made their warm cozy nest in the bathtub. Her space included all of the bathroom for food, water and litter box. We always left the door open.

She never lost sight of her kittens for two weeks and never left the bathroom. She always greeted company to her space and let me play with her kittens. She finally let me brush her beautiful long silky hair. She rubbed against my legs and started (the purr).

As the kittens grew we put a box on the floor for them and their mama. We had visitors who loved to come and help me (socialize the kittens). She watched warily from the back of the bathtub but eventually would come forward and let them admire her too. The kittens grew and ventured out of the bathroom into the rest of our apt. One day she followed them and decided it was a kind of neat space and started spending more time there.

But now the kittens were eating more and more solid food and they had sharp little teeth. They were grown. The shelter was waiting for them for their adoptions soon. Mama Rosita had to return to return to the shelter too. She is still there.

I hope our story will encourage someone to give her a hug from us, give her a brushing, hear the purr and take her home.  Thank you for letting me share their story.”

 

Belle is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Warrenton Kia Pet of the Week Starting September 9, 2018

Our volunteers say that Belle is a grey beauty. She is tall, long, and greets you with a friendly hello. You have to meet her in person to fully understand because her personality is sweet. She is laid back, likes head scratches, and blinks her gold eyes at you. She`d make a great addition to any home.

Adopted: Adak is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Warrenton Kia Pet of the Week Starting September 2, 2018

Adak is an almost 3 year old Great Pyrenees. Not only is he impressive in terms of beauty and size but he also has a very calming energy about him… And he has those thoughtful eyes to top it off! He is amazing on leash, likes long, mostly slow walks and seems to get along well with other dogs. Adak will need to be groomed routinely to maintain his thick coat and will also need to continue to put on weight to go forward as a happy healthy adult dog! A family with lots of love to give and fenced property (the more the better!!) for him to roam would be ideal!

Adopted: Gary is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Warrenton Kia Pet of the Week Starting August 12, 2018

Gary is a stunning white cat with deep blue eyes and a serious expression. He is a soft-hearted cat, ever observant of his surroundings.” You can visit Gary this week at Warrenton Petco in our shelter adoption kennel. Ask the Petco staff if you’re not sure where the shelter kennels are.

 

 

Roxy is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Warrenton Kia Pet of the Week Starting July 23, 2018

Roxy is a medium-sized two year old female pit bull with a gorgeous silvery coat complemented with a white chest badge. She is beginning to learn all of her basic training and is a quick learner.
This happy girl came in because her owner couldn’t care for her anymore. While she is not fond of cats and can be picky about which dogs she likes, she has lived with children and done well meeting children at the shelter.  She loves her walks with the volunteers, the longer the better. Roxy will need a fenced yard.

Adopted: Holly is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Warrenton Kia Pet of the Week Starting July 16, 2018

Holly is a very talky girl, which isn’t surprisingly since she is a Siamese mix. Terri, one of our cat volunteers, says “she growls and hisses at everything and nothing at all.” But she is all talk. Terri says Holly once jumped up in her lap and settled right in nice and cozy, while continuing to growl. Sounds like she just wants you to know she has a lot to say.

“This beautiful one and a half year old Siberian Husky/Akita mix weighs in at 61 pounds. He’s a strong boy and loves to get lots of exercise, making him a great candidate as a hiking or running buddy. We’re recommending that he go to a home without small children. He’ll also need a fenced yard.”

Adopted: Sophie is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting June 3, 2018

Meet Sophie!  Sophie is a mellow little girl right out of a Harry Potter book. She is an old soul looking for a home that she could call her own.  Has cuddly lap qualities and appears to be very focused on anyone willing to look her in the eye and
spend a little one on one time with her.  Sophie will be a great companion.

Adopted: Buddy is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting May 13, 2018

Buddy was a star at the Mutts & Moms dog show and adoption event at the Inn at Cannon Beach Saturday. He met lots of adults, kids, and dogs, and greeted them all with a wagging tail.
He loves his walks and is happy to snuggle on your lap once he’s back inside. He’ll be a terrific addition to any home.

Adopted: Everest is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting April 29, 2018

This eleven month old blue nose pit bull is a solid, well-rounded dog with a very friendly disposition. Everest wags his tail while on a walk, is great with kids and is a gentleman when offered a treat. He knows how to sit, warms up to new people quickly and is working on his leash skills. Everest would be a great candidate for more training, as he is young and eager to please. He will require a fully fenced yard and a lot of exercise so he can mature into a healthy adult. Everest is a very popular boy with the volunteers.

Adopted: Hoss is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting April 15, 2018

This boy has been with us since last summer. He was adopted out once but chased the cat and came back. Hoss is a seven-year-old Lab/Shepherd mix with plenty of energy. He would spend his whole day playing fetch if he could. He’s a champ; he drops the ball at your feet and then sits until the next throw. Walks and runs are also high on his list of favorites. Hoss will need a home with a fenced yard and no cats.

Adopted: Nico is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting March 4, 2018

Adopted: Eli is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting February 25, 2018

Jennifer tells us, “Eli might just be the perfect cat. He’s a large guy with an even bigger heart. It doesn’t take much to make this guy happy. All he wants is to be petted and loved. If you really want to make his day, grab a brush and spend some quality time brushing out his tabby coat. Ten minutes and he’ll be so relaxed and content, you’ll think he slipped into a coma. This guy is going to do well in pretty much any home.”

Adopted: Baby is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting February 12, 2018

Janet, a cat room volunteer, tells us, “Baby has been coming out of her shell and – who knew!?! Baby is a very affectionate lap cat filled with purrrrs.  At first, coping with her surroundings proved to be a challenge for her. Baby is such a beautiful girl and has so much to offer anyone that opens their home to her.”

 

Adopted: Chester and Little Foot are our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pets of the Week Starting January 29, 2018

This bonded pair came in when their owner died. They are very shy and will need a quiet home without children. Both prefer men to women (their owner was male.) A patient adopter will be rewarded with two very loyal, loving dogs.

 

 

Adopted: Isaac is our KMUN, Daily Astorian, HITS, 94.9 The Bridge and Kia Pet 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!

Adopted: 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.
