Dog of the Week: Duke/Jock

Julia D Dog of the Week

Duke

Hi, I’m Duke! I am a charming, happy, Red Heeler mix approximately one year old. I do excellent walking on a leash; I love to go for walks. I also love car rides, stuffed animals, and playing in a fenced in back yard. I am house broken. I do well with other dogs, and I would love a home with other dogs to help give me some confidence. I am very intelligent so I am very easily trained. I know what sit and stay mean, but I could use some more training to work on those commands and anything else you want to teach me. I should be around kids who are older than 14 until I get better at my commands.  I love to run and play; I have a whole lot of energy! I’m just transitioning out of my puppy stage! I also love to cuddle, give kisses and be loved by my human companion. I am very lovey! I am very cautious of new people. I really prefer to come check you out first, and I really rather you don’t pet me until I know you will treat me with kindness. I can’t tell my friends at Last Hope what happened to me before I came to stay with them, but all they know is that it takes me a while to trust people. Once I know I can trust someone, I am full of love and kisses! I am a very loyal companion and I just want to please my human companion! I can’t wait to find my forever home. I hope you will give me a chance to show you how much love I have to give!

Cat of the Week: Missy

Julia D Cat of the Week

Missy

Hi, my name is Missy. I am an older, laid-back girl. I enjoy spending my day curled up in a chair and soaking up any petting I get. I also like to play too. No toys no problem! I will chase my own tail for minutes on end. It really amuses the humans I live with. I get along with my foster sister and brothers. I like boys more than girls, but I still get along with my foster sister. I wasn’t sure about dogs at first, but I have been around them enough now that they don’t bother me. I live with a tiny human and I have gotten used to her too. I like it when she gently pets me and I especially like it when she gives me treats! I enjoy talking to humans, and they always hear me because I have a loud, but cute meow. I love being petted and don’t mind getting my nails trimmed.

Dog of the Week: Bella

Julia D Dog of the Week

Bella

My name is Bella and I am a gorgeous Boxer mix. No kids, cats or dogs inside my house, I could get jealous, territorial, or protective.  BUT, I’m great going on walks – not dog aggressive and I love every human, big or small, that I meet along the way.  (I’m a kisser and I will even try to kiss strangers!)  My best friend has neighboring dogs and when I visit her, I don’t mind them. I’m about as playful as they come.  I love, love, love to fetch a ball, so get your throwing arm ready!  But don’t worry if you get tired, just have a seat, because I will always return the ball right into your hand!  I’ll quit when I get tired, but I’ll throw the ball into your lap when I’m ready to play again. (I’m sooo smart!  And housebroken!  I’ll whine a little so you’ll know that I need to go potty.)

I’ve been living in a kennel/shelter for years and my best friend is worried about me.  She knows that I get the best care possible (I’m a shelter favorite – everybody loves me), but I want to be in a home!  I light up like a firefly when she comes to take me to her house, but then she sees the sorrow, sadness and depression in my eyes and body language when she takes me back to my kennel. Please save me.  I will be your loving best friend for life.

Axel

Axel is a sweet kitten with lots of love to give! He’s a playful boy who loves to climb up, up, up. He would love to have a tower or a shelf or two to climb on, but his favorite is climbing up on your shoulders. His favorite place to nap in his foster home is on the back of the recliner. He loves to be petted and will purr and purr when he gets some attention.  He does great with the cats and dogs in his foster home and loves his human foster sister too!

Dog of the Week: Clover

Clover

Hi I am Clover! I am a Husky/Lab mix. I have beautiful ice blue eyes that will melt your heart. I’m an energetic gal so I would really like to have an active FUREVER home!  I love running and jumping in mid air to catch a treat. Tennis balls are my all time favorite toy! I love stuffed toys but tear them apart quickly because they give me a little attitude when I start chewing on them. I’m a really good girl and prefer to have my humans to all to myself.  I’m not too fond of cats because they shed and other dogs, well they tend to steal the spotlight so that upsets me.  I love the water and playing in the kiddie pool! I’ll let you paint my toe nails and rub my belly all the time.  I am a smart girl and can’t wait to meet my forever people!

Cat of the Week: Baby Girl

Julia D Cat of the Week

Hi, my name is Baby Girl. You could also call me a princess or a diva. I like to be noticed and spoiled. In return for your attention I will give you lots of love and affection. If you want an interactive kitty I am the one for you! I am black and white with beautiful green eyes. I watch my figure well and stay slim and slender. I am only a year old so I am still very youthful, but not a messy baby kitten anymore. I like to talk a lot. I currently live with other cats at the Adoption Center and get along with them alright, but I really would like to be the only cat in your home so I can have you all to myself. I am spayed, up to date on my shots and have a microchip. My adoption donation is only $75.Baby Girl

Duke Brown

Hi, I am Duke Brown! I am about a 2-year-old English Bulldog and I am looking for a foster or forever home.  I am not a fan of things that “meow” and I really like to have my humans all to myself, so I would like to be the only dog in your house.  I already know some people words like “sit”, “down” and “shake” and I can learn so many more!  I will do anything for a treat!  And just look at my squishy face! I am adorable! Well that’s what everyone tells me!

Cat of the Week: Jax

Julia D Cat of the Week

Jax

This little snuggle monster is quite the purr machine too. Like all kittens, Jax loves to find a way to be as tall as he can. He loves climbing and chasing and playing and especially eating. He’s always looking for a good snack. Jax currently is in a foster home with adult cats, dogs (small and large), kids (5 and 11), and adults. He took a few days to be completely comfortable with everybody, but he now loves to play with the dogs, cats, and definitely the kids. Jax also does well on car rides. Jax was a transfer to Last Hope from a rescue in a neighboring county. They were overwhelmed with kittens and we had the available fosters. Jax is approximately 15 to 16 weeks old, current on his Distemper and Rabies vaccines, is neutered, and microchipped.

Dog of the Week: Abby

Julia D Dog of the Week

Abby

My name is Abby and I am a 1 year old female boxer mix. I am very friendly with every person and dog I meet (a little shy with my foster dad) I love my 8 year old foster brother. We play for hours! I am 100% puppy and I need to be taught how to become a great adult dog. I am doing really well on my potty training. I love to chew. I have pulled out a few slippers and shoes but they quickly get switched out for a rope toy and that is okay with me.

I kennel well; I sleep all night without a peep. I do get very curious if I am left outside too long and I jump the fence. I don’t go anywhere, I actually try to get back into the backyard. My foster mom yells my name and I come running !! I heard her saying that I am part greyhound because I run super fast. I am really looking forward to meeting my furever family. Please set up a meet and greet with me!!

Abby 2

All of our pets need to be kept as indoor pets and we do require a home visit as part of the adoption process. Landlord (if applicable), vet and personal references will be called.  The adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, microchip and vaccinations.

Cat of the Week: Idgie

Julia D Cat of the Week

Idgie

There’s something truly special about Idgie, besides the fact that he has perfect house manners, fur as soft as a baby chinchilla’s, is perfectly gentle when playing and has a “come what may” personality, there’s more to him than that.  Maybe it’s his wise-beyond-his-years personality, maybe it’s his confident presence or it could just be his laid back approach to life.  Whatever it may be, he is one remarkable kitten.

Idgie’s beginnings are unknown.  All that is known is that he was hanging out at a church for several days until he followed a woman home where her dog made it clear that he wasn’t welcome.  That didn’t discourage him though, he still tried to get inside, away from the bitter cold.  Bless the woman who called us to pick him up because she must have sensed that there was something wonderful about him too and that he deserved more than what life was offering him at the time.

After he arrived at his foster home, it was apparent that he was once a house cat, that he once had a home to shelter him and a person to feed him.  He was already litter box trained, already knew to stay off the counters and already knew how to show his appreciation for those who were caring for him. When you adopt Idgie, you will not be just adopting a kitten, you will be adopting something far more special than words can describe.
