SHAID Tree Animal ShelterAdult cats often overlooked
Frankie is a young, friendly, shepherd/husky mix. Phoenix is an attractive seven-month-old sheltie/toller mix. This little guy is very timid. Charlie is a beautiful border collie type. He has the traditional black and white border collie appearance. This is a sweetie and less than a year old. Tyson and Layla are only about nine weeks. They are boxer-type pups - very huggable. Cookie is a beagle/pointer mix. She is a young, gentle female. All of these new admissions are very nice dogs. Each one deserves a loving home of his or her own.
At SHAID we have come to appreciate the fact that we work in a small, well-designed shelter. We house a maximum of 10 dogs. They have well-constructed runs and guillotine doors that lead to outside runs. Each run has rubber matting and a raised canvas bed for comfort. Concrete walls, to above nose level, add privacy and help with disease control if necessary. We have several fenced areas where the dogs can play together. We also have a wonderful trainer who cares for each individual, and the staff has more time to work with problems than they would in a large shelter.
With the flood of kittens, adult cats often are overlooked. Kayla is a very pretty black and white female with a sweet disposition. She is a plus-sized lady with an attractive black nose. Kayla would love to be your buddy, perhaps joining you in a pre-summer diet effort. Overweight animals are more prone to health problems - just as humans are. Controlling your pet's weight is a kindness, and is part of responsible ownership.
