And yet another happy adoptor family!

I am attaching a couple of pics of Odette & Odessa I adopted from your shelter in June. They are getting so big, I can not pick them up anymore...even though they are convinced they are still lap puppies! So far, we have not had any issues with the cats (which was my main concern). Still working on potty training, they tend to be more focused when they are seperated. However the only complaint I am having is they are reacking havoc on my tomatoes...they LOVE them and eat them on the vine if I turn my back. Thanks, Andrea

Wonder what they are thinking!

Their human sibling went off to school and they all lined up to watch her go. :) Not sure if you remember the guy on the right, but he was adopted from us. He was the brother of the little rat terrier looking thing named Sally. He's giant now.

Molly - a Special MOM

On June 27th Highland County Dog Pound contacted our shelter asking for help with a homeless and very pregnant Beagle. A volunteer from our shelter picked her up that day and named her Molly. Hours later Molly was examined by our shelter veterinarian and it was determined she was too small and lethargic to have all of the babies inside her by herself. Molly needed to have a cesarean that same night. With the help of our dedicated veterinarian and shelter volunteers, Molly has nine babies. Last week our shelter received a call asking for help with three puppies who were only three weeks old. Molly is now a surrogate mother to the additional three pups. She is a great mother to all of her twelve babies and loves all the attention she receives from the shelter volunteers. We are so glad that our shelter was able to help Molly. In return, she was able to help three otherwise helpless and homeless pups. In addition to Molly and babies, our shelter is the home of another nursing mother and babies, and even more puppies, dogs, and cats. Donations are always needed as we currently have more animals than ever.
