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 and patience with these pets are rewarded with a lifetime of love and loyalty.

Fergus, a Mountain Cur, is an energetic and playful boy despite his 10 years. He gets along with other dogs and is friendly to people once they are no longer strangers. Fergus has been in our shelter for several years, probably due to his age, but he truly deserves to spend the rest of his life in a real home. We know he would blossom with the love and attention he would receive there. Fergus weighs 50 pounds and has every potential to be a wonderful and loyal companion. He enjoys treats and food and this would truly be a way to win his love!
Petite Georgie Girl is a very sweet, lovable two year old, but is shy on meeting new people. Although she enjoys being petted by our volunteers, she’s not fond of being picked up. Georgie Girl is a small, beautiful kitty with very tiny paws. Her black and white coat is thick and shiny, and she has cute baby like meow when she’s begging for attention. We know this special young lady has every potential to be someone’s cherished companion. The only questions are when that will happen for her and who will give her that chance?

A group of children from Valley Bend Baptist church visited with us recently, bringing much needed donations. The cats and dogs enjoyed visiting with the children, as did our volunteers. We are very grateful to these youngsters for coming to see us and for their generous gifts.
