there are so many special cases of animals that need a forever home, and have been at the shelter for over a year, it will take an extra special person to adopt them but we are all hoping. Morris a senior shepherd mix that would never walk upright he now enjoys long stolls along the stream near the shelter, we continue to walk but i know he would love to have a forever home for the holidays. Also there is a beautiful black and white cat that needs to wear a neck brace because of deep deep wounds as he was tied to a tree outside ,before animal control rescued him thanks to cross posting the energenic german sch. and beautiful schnuzer got forever homes remember a special adoption event takes place this weekend , so if you were considering to have your family grow by one member please come by, My new addition francis (10 year old senior) and my cats are all doing well together. And was so glad he is part of out family, and he is the best gift who sits under the tree. Yes, blankets are a great gift for the shelter. Come by on saturday and enjoy the events even if you can't adopt

yes , and its a great gift to bring to the shelter, most volunteers bring blankets and towels weekly, so extras are always needed, sometimes i take home extra large comforters and cut a sew them in half so two dogs can make use of them , every one always has extra linens, and a donation at this time of year would be well appreciated

I stopped by the shelter yesterday and dropped off five bags of blankets. The heating system was running fine, although when the doors to the outdoor runs are runs are open it is still chilly. But several of the dogs were sleeping outside instead of inside on the beds provided, so I guess they are comfortable out there. I went through two kennels, and saw only four dogs who were not pitbulls or pitbull mixes. There were two german shepards and two huskies. There were a few dogs in crates in the hallway, including one older beagle and one senior schnauzer. The animals that are usually housed in the first kennel which includes young dogs and some cats are currently over at the Last Hope facility due to expansion/ construction at the shelter. Everything looked to be in good order to me, with visible and helpful staff there. There is also a separate rooms for cats, with a few in cages in the hallway also. Regardless of whatever had been going on before everything looked good yesterday. Is it a high end doggie day care? No, it's not, but as far as shelters go, it seems OK now.

Nice to hear, kinda like a civilian watchdog group, pardon the pun.

I agree with Ted that anyone who adopts should definitely think it through. However, when you consider the fact that every Thursday (I believe) numerous animals are GASSED TO DEATH - isn't it better to give them a chance at life no matter how small it may be. Death is permanent.
