Cat Days of Summer

Memorial Day has come and gone, and summer is now officially upon us, which means two things. One, I can officially change into my white collar, and two, the Cat Days of Summer has begun!
June 1st marks the start of this comprehensive and countywide feline focused initiative. Try saying that three times fast (with a mouth full of peanut butter-  don’t tell Aimee!).  Basically, this summer it’s all about the cats, and it’s about time! Yep, I’m finally coming clean- I love cats! I am a cat person. A cat person dog.  A cat dog, I guess.  And this…

Adopt & Shop Grand Opening

Our Adopt & Shop Grand Opening this past Saturday, April 30th, was a huge success! With 16 animals finding their forever homes on Saturday, we brought our total adoptions to date to 44! It was a busy day, with many VIP (very important people AND pets) in attendance.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here it goes!
Frogs and elephants and bears, oh my!

A Sneak Sniff of Adopt & Shop!

Starting today Adopt & Shop, our first-ever retail adoption center, is unlocking its doors and letting you take a sniff around! I was lucky enough to take a cruise down to Lakewood with Executive Director Aimee Gilbreath and get my little paws inside to see this new, innovative store in person- I mean, in dog.  And let me tell you, I don’t think my tail has wagged this much since… yesterday when Aimee gave me a Kong filled with peanut butter, or this morning when I saw our neighbor the poodle, or this afternoon when I stumbled upon a fire…
