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 has been for the past six months.  Her foster mom tells us that Nora adores people and is very affectionate. 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 almost 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.  She will need a fully fenced yard.

Nora is currently in her foster home; if you’d like to meet this sweet girl, please call the shelter for an appointment, 503-861-7387. She has a small but ardent fan club.

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.

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.
