Elton

Look at this face! Elton would love to be in a home and out of the shelter. We believe he’s around 3 yearsold. His adoption fee includes his neuter, vaccinations, 4dx testing, and microchipping.

Violet

This girl will make an excellent companion for the right 1-2 person home. She loves to go for hikes, car rides, and shopping.Runnings is always a favorite destination where she always finds something she just can’t live without. She will need a home without children and other pets. A home without a lot of visitors is also a necessity as this diva has some stranger danger issues. We know we’re looking for a unicorn home but we’re hoping with lots of shares we can find it.

adoption fees greatly reduced

Gadget

He cuddles, he plays, he can even pull your sleigh (okay probably not so much, but he does make a really cute reindeer). It’s Gadget! This guy is very stressed at the shelter and would really like to be in a home. Gadget should be your only pet. With a guy like him that does it all, do you really need anyone else? He’s neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4dx tested.

Flex

Flex! This handsome guy knows a few basic commands and loves to play ball. He would make an excellent companion for someone who is willing to give him a chance at a forever home. Flex is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4dx tested.

Jodi and Jessie

Jodi and Jessie are two Shiba Inus who are looking for their new families. These two are retired breeders and will need work on their housebreaking and social skills. Jodi is 5-6 and weighs 14# and Jessie is 13# and is 7-8 years old. These two came from the same breeder but do not care for each others company so they should be adopted separately. They are spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4dx tested.

Freezing temperatures are here,

especially at night.

Cold weather can be hazardous to the health of cats and dogs, and even deadly, so here are a few things to consider for the animals in our care when the weather turns frigid:

• If your pet spends time outside, make sure that water is available both indoors and outdoors. In the winter, use plastic instead of metal bowls and buckets. Your pet’s tongue may stick to metal, and they could injure themselves trying to pull away. Be sure to dump the ice and refill the water as often as necessary. Pets won't lick ice or eat snow when they're thirsty, so they need to have water available. Another option is to purchase a heated water bowl for outdoor use.

• If your dog primarily stays outside, they will need a warm, dry place. You’ll want to provide them with a doghouse that’s raised up off the ground, has a door flap to keep out draft, and is equipped with dry, comfortable bedding. Ex: Straw. The straw must be removed from their house as it starts to warm up again to prevent mold, bacteria, and other insects from inhabiting.

• Pets always do best indoors at night, but in extreme cold temperatures, below freezing, no pets should spend nights outside. Cats and dogs, even those with thick coats, can get frostbite on sensitive areas. Their paws, ears, and tail are the most common tissues to be affected. If a pet is wet or damp, these areas are more vulnerable to frostbite.

• Many dogs, particularly those with short coats, will be more comfortable outside if they have a sweater. Many dogs also need boots in cold weather, regardless of coat length. If your dog frequently lifts their paws, whines, or stops during walks, it is probably because their feet are uncomfortably cold. You may want to also check out booties and consider buying a set.

• Be particularly careful when taking older or arthritic animals outside. They will likely become stiff and tender quickly and may find it difficult to walk on the snow or ice. Keep them close to your side when walking on ice to avoid a slip-and-fall accident.

• Don’t let dogs off the leash during a snowstorm. No matter how much they want to play in the snow, they can easily lose their scent and become lost in the snow once they are unleashed. Make sure dogs are wearing ID tags before you take them out, snow or not!

• Chemicals and salt solutions used to melt snow and ice can injure or irritate the pads of your pet’s feet and may be harmful if ingested. Gently wipe their feet with a damp towel before your pet has a chance to lick them. 

Beware of Antifreeze - DANGER

As little as a teaspoon of antifreeze can cause kidney failure. Be alert to the signs that your dog has swallowed some of it, which include drooling, vomiting, seizures, excessive thirst, panting, lethargy, and a drunken appearance.

If you think your dog has ingested antifreeze, it’s important to get to a vet or emergency vet as soon as possible. Even if you keep your antifreeze safely tucked away, there is still a danger from residue in the streets. Most antifreeze is green ethylene glycol, but it comes in several different colors. So watch where your dog is sniffing.

In case your dog does run into any unfavorable winter side effects, always be sure to consult your veterinarian.

IF YOUR DOG IS KEPT OUTDOORS, BE SURE TO PROVIDE A SHELTER FOR THEM. USE STRAW, HAY OR OLD BLANKETS TO HELP KEEP THEM WARM. PROVIDE WATER FOR THEM TO DRINK.
