Shelley is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting August 13, 2017

Amanda, who also took this picture, tells us, “Shelley is quite the character and is very much a herding dog! She is goofy, yet extremely focused, intelligent, sweet and loyal. Like most herding types, she is high energy and wants a JOB so badly! Whatever she is doing, she is doing it as if her and your life depend on it!
A bored dog is not a happy dog and that is especially true in Shelley’s case. She is VERY active and would do best in a home with room to run, with a human who understands how to fulfill her breed needs, and is willing to keep her stimulated both mentally and physically. With the proper environment, herding type dogs are some of the most rewarding dogs to own. They will give you what you give them times 100!! Are you the human for her?”
Shelley needs a fully fenced yard and a home with no kitties (she loves to chase them.)

Ingrid is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting July 24, 2017

According to volunteer Jennifer, “Ingrid is a golden brown tabby with a facial expression for every situation. She is a sweet, low energy cat who loves to cuddle up on soft surfaces. She is generally uninterested in the other cats in the adoption room and may fit in well in a home with other animals. I would love to know that Ingrid has found a loving home with a soft, sunny spot for her to take her daily naps.”

Adopted – Riley is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting July 17, 2017

Riley has bounced back to us because he likes to chase cats.  He loves everyone else and has lived very successfully with multiple dogs.  Riley spent Sunday at our booth at Sunday Market, where Linda tells us he was a star, happily meeting adults, kids, and other dogs, and napping in between.  This seven year old Beagle mix is affectionate and adorable.  He’ll need a fenced yard and no kitties, but other than that he’s going to make some family very happy.


Clyde (and our seizure cats) are our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pets of the Week starting July 10, 2017

Ed tells us:

“Okay Folks, this guy Clyde is anything but a conventional kitty. So you won’t be surprised that I spied Clyde driving a 1952 Chevy Woodie (you know, one of those old station wagons with real wood paneling on the sides) in my very neighborhood the other day. That’s right, he was sputtering down Sunset Boulevard at The Cove in Seaside. And yup, he had a surfboard tied on top of that Woodie. Clyde was about to ride a few waves, and if I know Clyde, he probably was hoping to dodge a few sharks while doing it. Take in that visual image, if you will, and you’ll pretty much know what kind of cat this three year old is.

He’s a feisty adolescent male. The guy’s adventuresome, always ready for action. So much so, he might just start a small skirmish with another cat simply for something to do. Clyde’s not the cat for just anyone. You couch potatoes best find yourself a lap cat, not a surfer cat like Clyde. But if you, yourself, are into daring action and morning to night fun, then this cat Clyde just might be the one.

Oh, he’s a handsome playcat too. Strutting around the beach in his silver tabby garb with pronounced black stripes. Think of those stripes as tattoos on a fit young bod and you’ll get a sense of the rebel nature of Clyde. Yah, he’s an active and instigator kitty. But you have to admit, he’s awfully pretty too. And, as I said at the beginning, this dude Clyde ain’t no conventional kitty. Thus I present to you, our Pet of the Week, the pride of our Cat Room, one cool cat named Clyde. He rides the waves, all right; and if you’re up for a life of unending fun, you’ll see that he rides homeward with you.”

Adopted – Chewie is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting June 26, 2017

Chewie is an intelligent cat with distinguished markings and curious eyes. His absolute favorite thing to do is jump high in the air to chase his toys. This good boy is ready to find a home that will have plenty of toys and a warm lap to snuggle. He loves to chat and chirp, so we can only assume he would love a window to sit in and watch the birds. He’s smart as a whip, being the only cat that figured out how to remove drain covers in the shelter and put his toys down the drain! Chewie is a energetic and entertaining cat that will make someone happy for years to come. Chewie doesn’t really appreciate other cats, so he will be happiest as an only cat. He is good with children, but can be a tad rambunctious when he plays.

Adopted – Bonded pair Shye Girl and Joey are our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pets of the Week starting June 19, 2017

Richelle sees Joey and Shye Girl as the perfect pair. “While Shye Girl is a little more energetic than Joey, neither are going to give you much of a run around. Both are exceptionally sweet and enjoy being petted and treats. They’re super gentle treat takers and are pretty appreciative. Joey and Shye Girl need an easy going home to spend their retirement years. Let’s not make these sweet seniors languish waiting around for their happily ever after.”

Mick is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting June 5, 2017

Mick came in as a stray last fall, so he’s been with us for quite a while now and we’d really like to find a home for this active boy where he can romp around while soaking up (and giving) lots of affection. He’s a young, very happy Lab/Pit mix who loves getting out with the volunteers, whether it be for walks or play time, and cries when he’s stuck in his kennel and others are out having fun. Mick is a smart boy and has learned a lot at the shelter, including sit, down, and stay. He’s looking for an active family with time for walks and a comfy couch for those post-walk naps.

Enzo is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting June 5, 2017

Richelle tells us, “Enzo is pretty timid at the moment, but just because the shelter is a scary place, doesn’t mean he’s anti-social.  In fact, give this boy a scratch and he will give you the sweetest little grateful kisses.  The more you talk to and pet him, the more he warms up. Enzo would make a fantastic lap cat in a calm home where he is talked to, petted, and loved. This boy really loves affection. He just needs a safe place to give it.”


Adopted – Dewey is our KMUN, DAILY ASTORIAN, HITS, 94.9 THE BRIDGE and KIA Pet of the Week starting May 8, 2017

Here’s Ashley:
“Dewey is a very handsome four-year-old male Pit-Bull Terrier Mix. He seems to be good with other dogs and people of all ages. Dewey likes to chase cats, so a home that is cat free would be best suited for him. He will also need a fenced yard.
Dewey came into the shelter because his people didn’t have the time needed for him that he and all pets need and crave. Dewey is very playful and loves interaction with all.
Dewey has a lot of energy and would do best in an active home. He would make a great beach walking, hiking dog and a great companion. (Some further leash training would benefit Dewey for a perfect fit).
Dewey loves to play ball with people. Dewey knows basic commands and has learned (while in the shelter) how to “High Five, and Shake Paws.”
Dewey is a very affectionate and one of our volunteer favorites. If you are seeking a companion for walks, hikes and life’s adventures, please come and meet our awesome, gorgeous, smart “Dewey.” ❤❤❤❤

Nate, shown here with Dewey, wants us to know that “Dewey is a handsome boy that’s currently living at the shelter. He is very playful and listens to you. He really likes playing with balls, and will allow you to snuggle him and hug him and tickle him. Dewey is looking for a home where he will be treated kindly and is played with. I had a very fun time playing and taking pictures with Dewey.”
