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.

- Janet Schulman -
Cooper is a happy, energetic little dog who is longing for someone to love him
as much as he loves anyone who spends time with him and gives him the

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!

“Just when you think it can't get any worse, it can.
And just when you think it can't get any better, it can.”
- Nicholas Sparks -
Kelly came to us because her beloved owner passed away and she is in need
of a safe place to stay while she waits for a new family to love and comfort her.
This is one beautiful little lady. Although she is a classically marked Treeing
Walker Coonhound she is a very petite and sweet pup. Her dainty face and
diminutive frame give her a decidedly girlish appearance. Kelly truly loves
being around people. She greets everyone at the gate and tries her best to
accompany our volunteers on their daily rounds. She is desperate to connect
with and find her special person or family. Kelly is a bit of an acrobat and has
the ability to test the boundaries of her fence and gate, so a secure
environment is going to be important.

"You can do the impossible, because you have been through the unthinkable.”
- Christina Rasmussen -
What happened to sweet Dutch? We have no idea and he doesn't seem to care.
Dutch arrived with an injury to his back leg. He is not putting any weight on
it but it doesn't slow him down and certainly doesn't stop him from being a
lovable sweetie pie. We will be having his leg evaluated and we will update
this information. Of course when you are as amazing, unstoppable, and
handsome as Dutch it doesn't really matter what happened. He is
looking toward his future but would prefer to heal surrounded by
the warmth and love from a furever family. Come meet this sugary
sweet boy and ask how AAS will support Dutch through the
healing process during his stay with us and in his furever home.

"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.

"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.

"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"
Dr. Seuss
Flip is a special guy. He has become somewhat of an Animal Aid Ambassador.
Flip has wonderful manners when traveling around town. He is excellent in the
car, he has had impeccable behavior when visiting school children, Petsmart,
CareALot, and a few other destinations. When he joins the volunteers in the
office he is very well behaved and enjoys snuggling under the desk with a toy.
Flip has short legs but a nice size, huggable body. Flip's one wish is to be
with people. He happily follows everyone around, and simply wants to be
alongside as chores are completed at the shelter. A stroll to explore and
sniff some new scents is his idea of heaven! Flip is a hidden gem and
the family that takes him home will be delighted for years to come.

"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!
