Happy Beginnings: Artie and Ella

Posted by Guest Author on September 30th, 2015

image3“Hello! I would like to thank your organization immensely for introducing my husband and I to our two little loved ones, Artie and Ella. With the recent passing of my husband’s 17 year old Golden Retriever, we knew it would take some time and a lot of research before we were ready to adopt. I signed up to receive emails about any puppies available for adoption near us and up popped Artie and Ella. We knew we wanted to adopt a mixed breed and these little ones were Husky/German Shepherd mixes (at least that’s what we think) and were perfect! We emailed the rescue Monday morning and were able to adopt them on Tuesday evening! It’s been fun and challenging raising these two but we wouldn’t change it for the world. They are now in training classes and are very smart! We’re in agility classes and basic obedience. Artie acts more like a Husky while Ella has the temperament of a German. People would stop us on the street to ask where we got them and we would always say! Thank you again, here are a couple cute photos :) ” — Even more photos below! Read More

6 Tips for Cats Scared of Dogs

Posted by Jennifer on September 21st, 2015

puppy-kitten-snuggleIn a perfect world, all puppies and kittens would have plenty of positive playtime with each other from a very young age, like my former foster kittens and puppy in the photo above. The reality is, many pets don’t have the opportunity to be multi-species socialized. This article is about a very specific scenario for when a cat hasn’t had the chance: a home with an adult cat who’s never lived with a dog before, and the cat is scared of a known-to-cat-friendly dog in the home.
