Shelter Update from Red’s Doghouse

 As you may remember, this past January, I was the recipient of a brand new, custom built, awesome doghouse – with a porch!  Just for me! Planning and construction of my doghouse was one of this year’s senior class projects.  I fondly refer to my benefactor as Super Cool Senior, and want her to know that I indeed love my dog house and often lounge on the porch with a dog chew, or take a little naps inside.   

Red’s Doghouse

Taking a break from the daily grind – sniffing, barking, patrolling the pen, Mmm…dog chew, think I will for a bit, DEER, sun spot, getting sleepy, CAR!   I wanted to share some more animal shelter news, the real news, from the kennels. 

  • New hours – The shelter has some new business hours – on Saturdays the shelter is now open for business, visits, and adoptions from 10:00am – 6:00pm.  Monday hours are now noon – 6:00pm, and Tuesdays – Fridays we are open 10:00am – 6:00pm.  Still closed on Sundays.
  • There has been some changes amongst our friendly staff, whom are working very hard lately taking care of all of us adoptable dogs and cats.  The Guardian Angels – I call them.
  • There are lots of dogs available for adoption, right now, here in Salmon…  We have short dogs, tall dogs, girl dogs, boy dogs, big dogs, not really any small dogs, and many different colors of dogs.  This is our largest census of dogs in over a year!
  • There are lots of cats available for adoption right now, here in Salmon, too.  We have young cats, and older cats, shy cats and bolder cats, boy cats and girl cats, striped cats and tabby cats.
  • Kitten season will be upon us in no time and we will need kitten foster families.  If you are interested in becoming a foster parent to kittens, give us a call and speak with our Manager.  The shelter will provide all necessary training, and cover all veterinary costs, food, bedding, and any other needs while the animal is in foster care. Fostering gives these little kittens a better chance at thriving in a homey and calm environment, and more chances to romp and play together like kittens do; all the while better preparing them for the home settings into which they will be adopted after they are big enough to be spayed or neutered.
