    Nearly 8 weeks ago two small kittens were brought into the shelter after being found all alone by a kind woman who had heard them meowing near her property. Hansel and Gretel were very frightened and required veterinary care when they first arrived. They spent the first couple weeks here in our isolation room. We featured these two in that weeks Five Dollar Friday and thanks to our supporters were able to raise the money to help cover their medical treatment.

    This past Saturday was an emotional day at the shelter. Sue, who is a regular volunteer at the shelter, has been working with senior sweetheart Baby since she arrived from Ventura County Animal Services a couple months ago. At 14 years old, Baby was our oldest dog resident, and to be quite honest she was just plain over being in the kennels.

    Sometimes at the shelter we have animals who it seems are just here forever. It can be especially difficult for new volunteers or staff when you fall in love with a sweet dog or cat who is just continuously overlooked. You feature them in your media outlets, take them to events, you do everything to bring extra attention to all their charms. Though many folks are interested, they watch all their little fur friends finding their forever homes while they patiently wait.

    We have wonderful news! Our dear friend Chespi has gone to his forever home! Chespi was rescued in the field by one of our Humane Officers all the way back in January. He was extremely underweight and very frightened when he first arrived. Officer Hoffman, his rescuer, took him under her wing and would take him home at night so he could get used to being in a loving family environment, something he may not have ever experienced.
