Aww I'm so glad gizmo is in a foster home. She deserves it

I had the pleasure of meeting Gizmo today and I must say what a sweetheart. She was out doing chores right there beside her foster mom…. Gizmo is living her best life ever and it shows (through the horse Pooh and all!) And a big shout out to her foster mom for being awesome & doing what you do👏

So happy for foster parents!! Wish i could foster my husband says no way!

This is a Bachelorette you need to FEEL to believe, as she is one of the softest-furred cats around! Truffles is versatile and can be your yoga buddy, snuggle partner or help you find whats on your top shelf; as you can see, she is not afraid of heights. This beautiful gal is charming with dogs, cats, and kids! We love her sense of adventure and playfulness; shes always the first to investigate new toys. We cant say enough good things about her, so you have to come give her some love. Also, do you see how photogenic she is?!Image attachmentImage attachment+7Image attachment

We interrupt this season of The Bachelorette to bring you some MASSIVE news! Meet Kitty, a CHONKY feline who loves attention and responds lovingly to his name. Despite his size, he enjoys climbing cat trees and running around to get pets. His purrs are almost as big as him, and we cannot get enough of this 25.5-pound boy. Whether you have a massive hole in your heart or need a furry friend that can double as a weighted blanket, visit Kitty and be amazed by his size. Our other cats also really love meeting new people, so we hope to see you soon!Image attachmentImage attachment+4Image attachment

25.5 lbs really, that's a big boy

Do you know how old he is? He looks just like my Hufflepuff that passed a few years ago 😍

Does he get along with other cats and dogs?

Meet Roxy, the next Bachelorette, who has been at the shelter for 262 days! Roxy is an excellent on-leash walker who loves feeling the wind through her fur. She is well-behaved, friendly with other dogs, and doesnt bother cats. Roxy is a great companion to take out downtown or to the park, as she befriends everyone she meets. 

However, the only thing that stands in the way of her adoption is her intelligence and love of the game keep away. She is still learning about recall, but volunteers have successfully taken, her out with other dogs while keeping a long leash on her. This way, when it comes time to load up, they can grab the long leash and get her into the vehicle. We hope that this one thing wont be what stands in Roxys way as she has many outstanding qualities that outweigh her not having a good recall.Image attachmentImage attachment+7Image attachment

Did you see us out and about the other day? We took some of our adoptable dogs on a fun Dogs Day Out! We spent some time soaking up the sun at Highlander Brewery, and the staff enjoyed some pizza and soda while the dogs got some love and attention from the public. After that, we headed to Island Park, where the dogs had a chance to cool off in the river and enjoy new experiences. We were so grateful to be able to provide our furry friends with some extra enrichment outside of the shelter.

If youre feeling lonely during your days off and would love a companion to share some adventures with but cant adopt, A Dogs Day Out might be perfect for you. Its a great way to give our dogs extra love and attention while they experience new things away from the shelter.Image attachmentImage attachment+2Image attachment
