Dog Days

Above, two new puppies left with the Humane Society. Don't think they'll be homeless for long. Below, I went with Melody and her handler on a socializing walk. Every day staff and volunteers take the dogs out for walks to learn their habits and help them be easy with people and their new life.

Visitors bring love and attention to abandoned animals.

Every Saturday the book lady has a sale to raise money for the cause.

Outside the buildings there is a group of long term kitties who keep the place mouse free.

Learning Community Service at a Young Age

The Humane Society has great opportunities for young volunteers. One on one time with young puppies and kittens makes a big difference later on. Probably for the young volunteer, too.

This little cutie lost an eye to an infection but it doesn't slow her down.

Volunteers lead the dogs through the thrift store to train them how to be around strange people.

Kittens are definitely a babe magnet. Want to find a beautiful woman, come to the Humane Society.

Cats and Rats and Puppy Dogs

Volunteers come in to work daily with the dogs, such as this puppy with a jumping problem. Patience and kindness go a long way.
I keep noticing how the kitty room attracts beautiful young women.

Did you ever try to photograph a moving rat? They just don't stand still - unless someone is holding them still. This is one of two that were donated to the Humane Society when the owners discovered they were allergic to them.

The kitty room also attracts cute kids, like my favorite model (below). She was trying them all on for size and would only let me photograph her - her father tried. I think it's funny that her eyes seem to match that of each kitty she's holding.

Animals seem to be instinctively wary of young children.

Bisquit, the Fashionista

Bisquit, above, is a very discerning dog. The one year old chihauhua/terrior mix is looking for an adult who is as fashion conscious as she is, someone who appreciates the beautiful clothes and accessories that Bisquit enjoys wearing. Bisquit loves adults but is uncomfortable around children.

This puppy was found abandoned in an empty house.

This was the day everyone was getting neutered. Back the next day to recover.

December Already!

Here it is December already. The Humane Society has the perfect gifts for Christmas - friends and companions.

More kitty and puppy therapy and the thrift store

You know they trust you when they get this laid back.

A new family.

A stray, covered in mud, waiting for his family to find him.
I think the local young men should know that some very beautiful women come to visit the Humane Society.


You can buy just about anything at the thrift store - even a Hawaiian hula skirt.

Below, I found the perfect customer in the Humane Society thrift store.
