A volunteer writes: A little slip of a girl lies hugging the back corner of her kennel but with my gentle invitation joins me for a walk. Nana may have been a bloodhound in a previous life, as her nose is to the ground sniffing the delights of a city sidewalk as we head to the park. Sweet and incredibly shy, Nana poses for photos, takes treats softly after a sit (she needed some coaxing), and wanted to meet a big boy American Bulldog that passed us by. Nana allows me to pet her gently but its still clear that she’s a bit uncomfortable. A staff person who later moved her to a different kennel told me she’s “sweet” and actually jumped up to be held in his arms! Nana is shy and needs some time to unfold and reveal herself; a gentle touch, a soft voice and patience will give this pretty little girl the time she needs to become one with you.
09/14/16 10:20 Nana is an adult mixed breed dog. She was found tethered to a pole and brought to ACC by police. Nana was a little tense. She walked around pretty slowly. She stood near me while I scanned her (-). She approached and looked at and sniffed me. She was tense with her head low but was tolerant while I collared her. When I finished, she moved closer to me and sniffed me. While I worked, she sometimes sniffed my legs and sometimes walked and looked and sniffed around the room. She was quiet.

Please go to our site http://zanisfurryfriends.org
fill out an application and return to email@example.com
Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on on Sundays and sometimes on Saturdays--please ask by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and following us on FB. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of us in particular, please fill out an application by Friday so that we can be sure to be there. Otherwise we decide based on other variables. Usually we are in our foster homes so this is a bit more stressful and a slightly artificial environment but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes too.
Please consider providing a home for more than one dog, especially if you are considering adopting a puppy. Dogs are pack animals and very much enjoy as well as need other dog company to learn to play, socialize and be good companion animals to people. The upside to this is that you won't feel as guilty leaving them alone and you get twice the love. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster or volunteer, and you can always donate!
If you want to know about cats/dogs specifically being shown at our adoption locations, please email us email@example.com closer to the date so we know your interest and will make every effort to have that pet at the event or let you know how and where you can meet. It is extemely helpful and speeds up adoption if the application is filled out prior to visiting us so please do that before coming to our weekend events. Our weekend locations are: Sundays usually and some Saturdays. Follow us on FB for latest updates. Usually we are in our foster homes so all this is a bit more stressful but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster.
