He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog,
You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the
last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Matt was brought to the shelter as a stray after being found wandering about, alone.
The poor thing was so matted that we could not tell whether to call it Matt or Mattie.
After a visit to the vet and groomer, Matt emerged as a handsome male Bichon Frise.
Matt is about 8 years old and very cute.
Matt is being cared for in a foster home. Please call the shelter 865-0511 to arrange a meeting.

"You say you love rain, but you use an umbrella to walk under it.
You say you love sun, but you seek shelter when it is shining.
You say you love wind, but when it comes you close your windows.
So that's why I'm scared when you say you love me."
- Bob Marley -
Honey is very confused and unsure about how she ended up here at Animal Aid.
She has deep fears about what will happen when you enter her living space. She
cowers and shakes but then an amazing thing happens..... She allows you to touch
and pet her. She is everything amazing about dogs in one tiny package. She has
physical and emotional scars but she is trying hard to overcome both of them and
forgive humans for the pain she has felt. Honey is an adorable, small, mixed breed
dog and she is truly as sweet as her name implies. Honey is destined to become
one of those pups that leaves the world a better place because she was here.

This dog has separation anxiety and needs to have another dog in the family.

"I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the
silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source."
- Doris Day -
Elly looks like a fluffy stuffed animal. You will want to scoop her into your arms and
snuggle her against you. Elly is currently very timid. She had a rough start in life
and is learning to trust people more and more each day.
Update: Oct 2, 2016 - Elly came to Animal Aid in December, 2015. She arrived
with an injury to her left eye and was very shy and afraid. She was taken to a
veterinary eye specialist, but nothing could be done and she is blind in her left
eye. With the special help and TLC she has received from dedicated volunteers,
she is now friendly, has more confidence, and is able to go on outings and mingle
with people of all ages. A companion dog in the home would be a benefit
to help her learn and become more confident. With patience and love
Elly is going to be a wonderful family member.

This dog has separation anxiety and needs to have another dog in the family.

I came to Animal Aid after spending a year boarding at the vetís office. I may be a
little older, but don't let that drive you away. There are so many perks to adopting an
older dog! First, I already know what I like and don't like. I prefer a quiet home. I do
like plenty of scratches behind the ear! Second, I already have my manners down. You
probably won't have to teach me much... just let me get used to my new environment.
I'm a sweetheart who can't wait to spend my golden years with you. Iím a diabetic and
I need an insulin injection twice daily. The best part is that Animal Aid will
pay for all medicine and tests concerning my diabetes.

Jetter is being cared for in a foster home. Please call the shelter 865-0511 to arrange a meeting.
