pablo | dog adoption spca monterey county

meet your new bff!  his name is pablo and he is truly awesome.  he is a graduate of the 'take the lead - dog training program' and feeling really fine since they removed that pesky owie eyeball. if you haven't heard about take the lead, it is a fantastic program that  pairs at risk teenagers with shelter dogs to give them both an opportunity to excel in achievements and relationships.  the dogs are trained with positive reinforcement and the teens not only feel the joy and pride of accomplishment... but they also feel the unconditional love that dogs give and enjoy a special relationship and bond with the dog.  in many cases can be a new start for both of them.

some teens even write adoption letters to the new perspective owners -- yep i cried when i watched the video -- give it a gander, it will warm the cockles of your heart

now about pablo....  he was found as a stray in marina ca,  in need of medical attention for a very infected eye and some groceries.   he is 2 years old and believed to be a cattle dog/terrier mix.  he  has a plethora of badges (tasks that he has learned in the take the lead program) and is a very happy wee fellow.   he even rocked it out showing me his mad skills on the dog agility course!  gooo pablo goo!!

if you are interested in pablo please give the amazing staff at the SPCA for Monterey County a ring -- 831.264.5422 -- they would love to hear from you.  and if you can't adopt,  donations are always happily accepted.  thank you so much for all that you do!

fiona | portland pet adoption

oh how i yearn to find this sweet sweet girl a home.  i met her at the Oregon Humane Society Doggie Dash and she stole what was left of my heart. her foster mommy said she that although she is a big hound girl, she is most likely to be seen hunting a spot on the sofa than yonder wild things.

do you think she may be the missing piece to your heart?  maybe you know someone who she would be perfect for...Please fwd this post on to them and have them check out her full bio HERE

She has been in foster care for a long's time.. she need a home.

She is available for adoption thru Family Dogs New Life, a fantastic no kill shelter here in portland.

sniffs that need YOU | portland pet adoption

'i must be brave' i tell myself..... 'must be strong'. but walking away from all of these babies is one of the hardest things ever. i fell head over heels for every kitten, and each pup. REEEEELY want to take them all home. but prudence prevailed, and besides, i wouldn't want to deprive you of your new found love! most of the kitties you see had just arrived at Dogstar, and as you might imagine, were a little scared...but after sitting with them for only 5 min, each one of them came out of their shell.. and turned into the biggest puddles of love. like ridiculously sweet.

and the pups?? oh me oh my oh... yeah. that was hard. i kinda love kiki and spencer, a LOT!  sigh...

please please..if any of these babies tug at your heart strings or if you know anyone looking to add to their family joy... call the amazing folks at Dogstar and they will answer any questions you have.

oh for the love.. so handsome this wee one.

fluff | you need these

While making my downtown rounds...I stopped into Dogstar, the oh so fantabulous, retail pet shop/doggie day care/rescue.  I chatted with Theresa, picked up some food for the boys, and checked in on the adoptables.  Did anyone need a new photo?? Oh yes!  I found out that a couple of girls that I had photographed last time were still there.  ok, new photos coming up, sometimes just the energy of a fresh photo is all it takes.

So here they are. Perfect in every way. If you are interested in adopting any of these furry loves...please call the kind folk over at Dogstar; 503.227.0292.  They will get you all the info on the girls and let you know details on how to adopt.
