“Hi, my name is Ace.   The shelter staff thinks I might be about 7 years

  1. It feels like I have been here a very, very long time, probably ’cause I’m a pup.  The staff says I came to live here a year and half ago and maybe to humans that is not a long time but to a pup that does not have a family and lives in a kennel in the shelter, that is forever!

 

I am very well-mannered, I understand basic commands, and I will give you my paw if you ask.  I can’t prove that to many people because no one comes and asks to see me like they do the other pups.  The staff says that it is because I am a pit bull and some humans are scared of them.  I’m not scary…I am gentle and I love to cuddle.

 

I am good with children, I really like them and I am excellent on leash.  I love walkies and I love tennis balls and I love treats.  I like to keep my kennel very clean and I never potty in it.  I can’t have fluffy, stuffed toys, I eat them.  I can’t live somewhere that has cats ’cause I am just a little too interested in them and, because I have been alone so long, I should be the only pup in the house.  I don’t want to be an outside dog…I don’t know exactly what that is, but other pups I have talked to said it means that the pup lives outside the house while the rest of the family lives inside the house.  I want to live inside the house with the other family members.

 

I would love a family to spend my senior years with.  I don’t ask for a lot, just a comfy place to rest my weary head in a home that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer, humans to cuddle with, a food dish, a water dish, and lots and lots of tennis balls.

 

I promise to take good care of my new family, can it be you?”

 

 

UPDATE: Happy Ending for Lia

Back on May 29th, 2014, 3 dogs were found abandoned in an unoccupied home.

These dogs were severely neglected.

2 Yorkies and a Beagle were kept confined to crates and chained within the house, 24/7.

Pictured below, in order are Liam (SSPCA name), Lia (SSPCA name) and Mr. Beegle (SSPCA name).

They were immediately brought to a Veterinarian and cared for as needed.

Both Yorkies were seniors, the male older than the female.

Since they originally entered the shelter, Liam’s health was on the decline, despite all the Veterinarian’s efforts.

Unfortunately, the decision to euthanize had to be made for Liam’s sake.

Mr. Beegle has since gained some weight and is currently awaiting his new forever home (is this yours?).

Mr. Beegle...

And little Lia, with only 3 paws was adopted on 7/19/14 to a wonderful person who will now be caring for her every need for as long as possible.

Giardia Update 11/23/13 GOOD NEWS

happy cat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The animals are ELATED!

The shelter is back to “business as usual”.

Only a handful of cats are still being treated for Giardia.

Those cats are being treated and are isolated from all the others.

All other animals at the shelter have tested negative 2 consecutive times.

If we have any suspicions we will retest those in question,

but for now we are in a much better place.

Please stop in anytime during our business hours:

Tuesday-Saturday

11am – 4pm!

Thank you to the Businesses who have supported our mission and sponsored a pet!
