In Loving Memory . . .

On December 31, 2014, our resident cat Squeeky crossed the rainbow bridge.  Squeeky came to live at Animal Friends about three years ago after being abandoned in an empty house after his owner was put into a nursing home.  Squeeky was adopted quickly by a family in Morgantown, but was returned due to weight loss. We then discovered he suffered from renal problems and was put on a special diet for kidney failure while awaiting adoption. This effort helped Squeeky live another few years.  Even though Squeeky was never adopted again, he was loved by the volunteers and they made the shelter his home. He had several beds in the lobby and kitchen, and would alert the volunteers when he wanted to go visit the cats in the free roaming rooms. He would greet our visitors, and kept track of the goings on from his tower on the desk. He loved when a volunteer would lay their jacket on the bench, and claimed it as a new bed until they had to leave.  Squeeky was much loved, and his absence will be felt by us all.

In his honor, the volunteers are having him cremated. A tree will be planted, and his memory will grow and remain with us forever.  Squeeky was one of the 24 cats that have been living out their lives at our shelter.  While we hope and pray that each and every one of them will be adopted into loving homes, they know we will cherish and care for them for as long as they live.

It's difficult to understand why some dogs are chosen for adoption just days after they appear on the website, and others wait patiently for years. Dude is one of those waiting dogs. He came to us when he was 18 months old, surrendered by his owner who could no longer care for him. He is the last remaining dog who was with us before our new shelter was built. Hundreds of dogs have come and gone to adoptive homes and rescues since then, but sweet Dude remains. Many dogs have shared his pen, and he has gotten along well with all of them. He is a gentle and kind dog, who loves to walk outside on a leash, or run around in the fenced yard. Dude has recently shared his pen with a very active and aggressive female, and we all agree that he is the only dog in the shelter who could put up with her antics. He would be a wonderful family dog, and seems to be good with children. Surely, such an outstanding dog deserves a home of his own. Please don't let him wait any longer!

FEATURED PETS . . .
Todd is one of the 20 plus cats that have been long-term residents at our Shelter.  He and the other adult cats often get overlooked for adoption simply because they’re not cute little kittens, but Todd is a real charmer.  He’s smart, too!  On one of his trips to an adoption event at the Uniontown PetSmart store, he figured out how to open all the windows to the other cat cubicles so he could run all through them!  What great fun he had that day!  He has a sister named Thyme, who needs a home too---she’s a bit shy.  Todd is a wonderful, fun loving boy who will be a truly wonderful family companion.  All he needs is someone to choose him for their very own best friend!
