Her markings are beautiful

Spooky is the most caring foster dad to the kittens in the Kitten Cabin, but he also wants to advocate for the senior cats and those with disabilities! Cats like him take life slow and are fond of being petted. They know how to use the litter box and their scratching posts. Spooky still loves to climb in the cat trees and enjoy the views but does not have that enthusiastic kitten energy, and he is not here to yuck your yum (you know if kittens are your thing), but he just wanted to give you another viewpoint on cats like him. Or maybe you want the best of both worlds: the crazy kitten energy and a calm senior boy. Can it be any cuter to have him stand and make biscuits on himself?!

Talk about a Dogs Day Out! Jax was able to go say Howdy to the folks at Discovery Rehab & Living! We so greatly love all our volunteers who get our dogs out on adventures and showcase how wonderful they are to the world! Jax still being here blows us away as he is a 5-year-old Patterdale Terrier who loves water, walks, and LOVE!

Jax is the man! ❤️

I think it’s great to be able to take animals to these places. Animals have such a great way of bringing joy and comfort to kids and adults ❤️

Thanks, wonderful that they had a great visit.

As the temperatures are expected to reach the 90s this weekend, we want to remind everyone how quickly a car can heat up!

As the temperatures are expected to reach the 90s this weekend, we want to remind everyone how quickly a car can heat up!🚨 Pet Safety Alert 🚨

As the weather continues to heat up, remember: NEVER leave your pets in a parked car! Even with cracked windows, temperatures can soar to deadly levels within minutes. Your furry friends can suffer from heatstroke, brain damage, or worse.

👉 Facts to remember:

• On a 75°F day, a car's temperature can reach 100°F in just 10 minutes.
• On a 90°F day, it can hit 160°F in less than 10 minutes.

🐾 What to do:

• Leave pets at home if you can't take them with you.
• If you see a pet in distress in a hot car, call local authorities immediately.
• Spread the word to friends and family – let's keep our pets safe!
• Stay vigilant, stay cool, and keep your pets cool too!

New dog, WHO DIS?! This right here is SIS! The sweetest hippo girl you may just ever meet! Sis came to us after being dumped at a boat ramp by her owners. When we first met her, she was timid and would not come out of her igloo. Staff took the time to sit with her and give her treats, and by the end of the day, she was giving them kisses. After a few days of learning that she was safe; she broke out of her shell! She does the cutest little hops when getting leashed up and loves to play with her squeaky toy! She does not seem to be feline-friendly and not interested in being friends with smaller dogs. We hope to learn more about her personality with bigger dogs. She is excellent off-leash and stays nearby. Sis has a chonky body and the cutest small head, we are slowly working on getting her a waist line!Image attachmentImage attachment+1Image attachment

Love the information you're providing in your posts for pets that are available. It helps tug peoples heart strings and helps them make adoption decisions to have all this information. Keep up the good work!!

I fostered this dog for a month she is sweet but afraid of men she would be great for a single lady. That's my opinion
