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.

Courage (one to 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. Bless his heart, he allowed us to treat the injuries without so much as one complaint. You can see that he’s all healed up now and is a very handsome fellow. 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”, and then he will tend to play “rough”---nipping and biting, but never hard enough to break skin. We do recommend a home without young children and he wouldn’t be ideal for senior citizens, either, but we do know there’s no reason why he wouldn’t make a great family companion for folks who will take the time to learn about him. He more than DESERVES the chance to prove himself! Will YOU be the one to give him that chance?

Meet Willa! This 2 year old, 40 pound Walker Hound mix is a real sweetheart! She's won the hearts of our volunteers and makes friends with everyone who stops by to visit with her in the lobby! Willa gets along fine with other dogs, too. She's a very happy, playful and friendly young lady. When Willa first came to us, she'd been having seizures, but with a visit to the vet, a comprehensive diagnosis and the proper medication the seizures are well under control with no further recurrences This is a very special lady who’s hoping to win your HEART and a place in your HOME!
Seven year old Buster has been patiently been waiting for his forever home for several years. This big fella is very kind to other dogs and he loves the attention he receives from our volunteers. Buster is a big boy, weighing in at 80 pounds. He enjoys being outside and would love a home with a fenced yard where he could wander around smelling the grass and the flowers. And after a busy day of wandering around sniffing the flowers, he likes to cuddle up with his favorite human companion or on his favorite blanket. After waiting patiently all these years, Buster truly does deserve a home where he can be the center of attention and a cherished companion.
Oreo, now known as Reggie, is doing great! We know why he was surrendered. Big....time chewer, nothing is safe. He is a very happy dog. Loves sleeping on sofa with my husband. Gets along with the cat. Loves the neighborhood dogs. We went on trip, he is a perfect car rider. In that one photo, he was barking at the frog. Big bad dog. Hair is still growing. Who knows how it will finish. He is getting fat. He’s a chow hound. We will have to watch his weight.
We thank you for doing all you do. Tell the other girls at shelter.
