The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one
that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the
wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world...When all other friends desrt, he remains.

There's just something about dogs that makes you feel good. You come home;
they're thrilled to see you. They're good for the ego.
- Janet Shulman -
Here is one very happy girl who just wants to please everyone she meets! She has
so much love to share and only asks for a little attention in return. She will need
some obedience training to help control her enthusiasm, but it
will be time well spent. This beautiful girl will chase away
any gloom that is in your life!

One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue
is that he doesn't try to find out why.

She needs a home with someone who is at home most of the day to
help her overcome her separation anxirty.

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
- D Adams -
Fergus came to Animal Aid as part of an amazing team effort to save 15 hounds just
hours before their time was up. Fergus is a dapper Treeing Walker Coonhound. The
perfect combination of stately and sweet, he yearns for a family of his own. He has
a great personality and enjoys a romp in the play area, a tickle behind his big ears,
and a snooze in the sun. Come visit this hunky hound!
We are so proud of our intake coordinator for being part of a multi-shelter rescue effort.

"Because I'm happy Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do...."
-Pharrell -
If you could get inside Vern's head I am pretty sure you would hear Pharrell's famous
song "Happy" playing over and over again. Vern is a bit of a celebrity at the shelter.
He arrived as an aloof hound who wasn't sure what to make of humans, probably
because no one had ever shown him much affection, nonetheless Vern was always
happy. Today Vern enjoys the company of people. He loves car rides, toys, a good
full body massage, and DINNER! Vern is high energy and races around the play
yard like a steak of lightning playing with toys, water bottles, brooms... whatever
he can pick up. Why? Because he is HAPPY!

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."
~Vivian Greene ~
Sweet Tanner embodies this quotation. He has been at the shelter far toolong and
yet he makes everyone smile on a daily basis. Tanner does amazing tricks with
his special ball. He is truly an All-Star soccer player! He knows several
obedience commands, waits nicely for treats, and loves going for walks
and car rides. Tanner would thrive in an adult household. He is
sensitive if someone grabs his collar or neck leading us to think that
there were some traumatic moments in his past. He would also
love to be an only dog or selectivelychoose his canine siblings.
Tanner is such a favorite pup that he qualifies for our Senior Special
Program. Call us for additional information about his program.
Take a look at Facebook to see Tanner's 'soccer' video.
