It's been a busy Spring! So many of our dogs and pups have found their
"fur-ever" homes. We had smiles on our faces as we waved goodbye
from the Shelter front door!
Recently adoped: Jazzy, Cheerio, pups Louie and Patty, Crisco, Missy, Penelope, Tilly, Trixie, Nikki, Manny, Summer, Baby, Buddy, pups Cooper and Cheyenne, and Sawyer!
We wish you all a great life!
And, now for the puppy update: Come in and meet Sandy and Teddie, siblings from an "unplanned" litter of four yellow Lab/mix pups (Louie and Patty were from this same litter). They are approximately 3-4 months old.
Savannah and Nino, from different litters, are yard mates and little furballs! Savannah looks to be a German Shepherd/mix from the mask on her face, and is about 10 weeks old. Nino might be a husky/mix with a curly tail and blue eyes. He's about 3 months old.
William and Kate, from different litters, arrived at the Shelter the day after the Royal Wedding. William, about 8 months old, might be a Corgi/terrier mix, a medium sized pup. Kate, an adorable golden girl, is about 3 months old and with her coloring, might have some Golden Retriever somewhere in her lineage.
Piper, a 2 year old Lhasa Apso mix, arrived at the Shelter about a week ago... he's already received the benefit of Volunteer Nadine's brushing, and looks so handsome!
A mom and her pup were rescued and brought to us. Freckles, about 3 years old, seems to be a long haired dachshund/beagle mix, and her pup, Reba, is probably about 6-8 weeks old. It's difficult to speculate on how big Reba might grow to be as we don't know who Freckles' "visitor" was!
Taska and Cherry round out our dog roster. Taska has become the "Grande Dame" of the Shelter, and enjoys her seniority when it comes to doling out the treats! Cherry is featured in an article, below.
Unfortunately, not all of our news is happy. It is with sorrow that we said goodbye to Rosie, a long time resident at the Shelter; she was six weeks old when she came to us, and she stayed for seven years. In mid April, Rosie was seen by Animal Health Center and Dr. Monce (our vet of record and an internal medicine specialist in Cary). She was diagnosed with an incurable, degenerative spinal disease. During the week following her evaluation, we cared for her, giving her comfort and love, until she could no longer stand or walk. We let her go on Friday, April 22; her cremated remains are being kept at the shelter. We miss you, sweet Rosie; may your spirit soar.
