Spring Cleaning and Your Pets Safety 

Spring is here!

For many people that also means it’s time for spring cleaning! If you have pets, and are feeling the urge to declutter, deep clean, and spruce up your landscaping, it’s important to consider what products can be toxic to animals and how to keep your pets safe during cleaning time. 

Adorable Adoptable -   Baxter

Meet Baxter!

Baxter is a handsome black and white pointer mix who is about 5 years old. While he can be a little unsure in new situations, with patience and love Baxter has blossomed into a very fun, sweet dog. He loves to play with tennis balls and go for walks to explore the Pacific Northwest! Baxter is eager to learn and loves treats! He would love a quiet and patient home where he can have time to settle in and get to know you. 

 Volunteer Spotlight -   Tiffney

Meet this month’s Volunteer Spotlight – Tiffney!  

This month's Volunteer Spotlight is on one of our wonderful foster parents – Tiffney!

Tiffney has been a foster parent since 2014 and in that time has fostered over 100 animals! She has opened her home and heart to kittens, cats, puppies, and dogs and we are so grateful for all she has done!

Tiffney was the foster parent to a puppy named Paris, who was recently transferred to our shelter from one of our partners. Paris was only a few days old and had to be bottle fed. Now she is healthy, happy, and has become a permanent member of Tiffney’s family! Tiffney is currently fostering a special needs cat named Friday who has a birth defect to his spinal cord that makes him unable to walk well on his back legs. Friday is currently available for adoption in foster.

Thank you, Tiffney for all you have done for our shelter pets!
