ADOPTING SHELTER PETS
WITH TRUST ISSUES
Shelter pets that exhibit shyness
on meeting new people are
very often overlooked for adoption.
But people who are willing
to invest some time & patience
with these special pets
are rewarded with a lifetime
of love & loyalty.

Courage (about two years old), had a pretty bad start to his life. He came to the shelter with some other cats that were rounded up because they were not being treated well. At that time he had some very bad facial injuries that required intensive treatment. You can see that he’s all healed up now. He’s a happy, healthy, affectionate boy but he’s VERY HIGH ENERGY, always ready to play! The thing is, he can get “over stimulated,” but never bites hard enough to break skin. We do recommend a home without young children and not ideal for senior citizens. He deserves chance to prove himself! Will YOU be the one to give him that chance?

Dear Parker was abandoned in a local park, but he found his way to our shelter. This male Labrador mix appears to be between 6 and 8 years old, and weighs 55 lbs. He’s a quiet boy and very friendly. He does fine with other dogs---he’s very patient with his pen mate, Josie, who’s a bit of a whirling dervish. Parker loves spending time outside and patrolling the grounds. He enjoys the attention of the volunteers at the shelter, but we sense a sadness and a confusion, as he doesn't understand how he wound up here. We will probably never learn about Parker's former life, but we are determined to find him a loving and secure home where he can live in peace at last.
Otto is a very friendly, well mannered senior dog. He has plenty of energy and curiosity about life. He gets along fine with other dogs and loves people. Otto is house trained, in excellent health and has no aggressive tendencies. We think he’s been passed over for adoption because of his age and breed mix---totally unfair! This fella has a long way to go and a lot to offer to the family that will give him the chance to prove what an awesome dog he can be. How about it? He can go home with you TODAY!
