My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Ladybird started off with a family for the first six months of her life, then was lost for the next six months. We don’t know anything about that time - where she was or who had her. Her original family came for her when she arrived at the shelter but immediately lost her again and were not interested in coming for her when she turned up at the shelter again two days later. Fortunately for Lady, she was now somewhere that she was safe and fed and there were plenty of people who loved her. Lady was extremely popular with the other dogs and was noted as one of the best players in the place! After some time at the shelter we were able to place Ladybird in a foster home with a wonderful couple who had recently adopted one of Ladybird’s good friends, Monty. A foster placement gives us so much more information about a dog and allows us to find the best permanent fit for them. Lady’s foster mom wrote the description. I couldn’t have said it better!

“Ladybird is a gorgeous, wicked-smart girl who is very generous with love, licks, and cuddles once she gets to know you. Lady also loves toys, and loves to greet the day by grabbing a stuffed squeaky toy and wiggling circles around you as you pet her. She is young and fit, and would do great with an active family. We've taken her on several hikes and she keeps pace happily and checks in regularly. As is she's a great trail companion and she could only get better with more practice. That being said, she's also happy to lounge about the house - we spend most weeknights snuggled up. She's house broken, crate trained, and eager to please - she'll happily train for a little treat or a fun toy. Did I mention she loves toys? Lady would be a good candidate for homes with other dogs - she'll play with her foster brother as long as he'll let her! She may be ok with cats - we have a house rabbit that she has shown no interest in chasing or eating, and that's usually a good sign. Ladybird is looking for a caring and compassionate family that will help her build confidence and that will understand she needs some time to get to know and love new people. She's had a rough start, but with the right family she will shine!”

Ladybird is about a year and a half old, spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccinations.

More about this rescue

Redwood Pals Rescue was formed to keep the euthanasia rate low at our local county shelter which is a kill facility. We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to support rescue and adoption efforts of animals that are at risk in the Humboldt County Animal Shelter.

Some of the things we do:
* rescue animals in danger of being euthanized at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter

* place rescued animals into permanent adoptive homes;

* facilitate transportation of rescue animals to out-of-area rescue organizations, fosterers, and adoptive homes;

* train/rehabilitate rescue animals to facilitate their placement into permanent adoptive homes;

* to provide temporary foster of shelter animals with medical needs to facilitate their placement into permanent adoptive homes;

* provide educational outreach to promote the adoption of shelter and rescue animals as pets;

* improve the quality of life for animals at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter;

* encourage and facilitate proper veterinary care including vaccinations, spaying and neutering;

We always need: Donations! which can be sent to our P.O. Box or through Razoo. Fosters! We do not have a shelter of our own but instead rely on kennel space for our rescue dogs at the shelter (when it isn't full) or with our network of foster homes. We sometimes have to emergency board dogs to save their lives. We would rather have them in a foster home. Volunteers! if you are interested in volunteering let us know. We are a small group and could always use more help.
