Jaws Needs a Home!

This terror of the seas is looking for a home! Okay, you got us. Terrier mix Jaws is just the opposite of his notorious, aquatic namesake: a land-dwelling, oh-so gentle soul who wouldn't harm a flea. (Though he's had all his flea treatments, we assure you.)

Jaws came to us through our Transport and Rescue Program, originally found as a stray in Mississippi. He had been hit by a car on the highway with a broken jaw so severe he couldn't close his mouth! (Hence his name.)

After jaw surgery in a nearby vet clinic, Jaws spent a whole two months recuperating, until at last he was well enough to make the trip north aboard our rescue van. Now, he's patiently awaiting his special someone at our Range Road building in Brunswick.

At first he'll appear timid, but we hope you'll take some time to get to know him! He has the sweetest disposition, not to mention ears for days... water you waiting for?

SAFE AND SOUND
An Update on our "Pond Kittens"
Bengal kittens Eeyore and Piglet got lots of attention last week after reportedly being thrown into a Phippsburg pond. They were even in the New York Daily News!

We're pleased to report that the lovable duo is doing extremely well. Foster mom reports that they are full of energy, but she managed to get a rare photos of Piglet sleeping! They will remain in foster care until the case is concluded. They may even have found their new home!

FAIRGROUNDS FINDS
I Got You Babe
We had two celebrities in house recently: Sonny and Cher! Two special kitties were discovered at the Cumberland Fair Grounds and brought to us by Animal Control.

Both were covered in fleas and looked thin. One was male, mostly black except for a white patch on his chest. The other was female, a beautiful long-haired calico. Looking at the condition of their teeth, we estimated them to be around 3-4 years old.

We gave them exams, vaccinations, plenty of love, and some names befitting the fabulous felines.They had bad dermatitis from fleas, resulting in hair loss - particularly on the black one, Sonny. His belly and back were almost completely bald. Once they were given a clean bill of health, they moved to the adoption floor. And, though they were surrounded by other kitties with thick, lustrous coats... in no time, some lucky adopters were saying All I Ever Need is You.

Bald hair, don't care! Enjoy your new home, sweet one!
SAVE A STRAY SPECIAL SECTION
WHY I'M RUNNING
John Favreau
"I have owned pets most of my adult life – dogs and cats – but I am not currently in a living situation that would permit that. I must confess to having a special affection for dogs. I always keep dog treats on my school bus to toss out at the doggies waiting on their kids at the bus stops. Getting some time to spend with dogs through CHS felt right, and I found myself with lots of free time available during the winter months.
 
This will be my first 5K ever. I used to run, so this was a good excuse to get back into it at the tender age of 58. I’m doing well so far, but I don’t think I’ll break any course records. I’m just very happy to help in any small way that I can. I’ve been involved with the puppy rescues from the Southern shelters, and I am extremely grateful that CHS is offering this fantastic program
 
If you care about animals, why would you NOT want to help out with fundraising or with volunteering? It’s the most rewarding thing that you can do."

TOTES ADORBS
Where Are They Now?
WELLINGTON HAS OPINIONS AND HE'S NOT AFRAID TO SHARE THEM
"Here are some pics of our little dude, he is fitting right in with us! He is very vocal, comes when we call him, and doesn't miss a beat with the dogs. We expected a grumpy barn cat but he is really affectionate and I'd even go as far to say that he likes us! Thanks for connecting us with our new family member and guardian of our farm."
RAMBO LOVES HIS FAMILY AND HIS LAMBCHOP
"We adopted Rambo a few weeks ago. We have renamed him Baker. He has been a joy to have around. The kids adore him and he loves the kids. He loves his walks and is doing well with potty training. He loves his stuffie lambchop and all his other toys. We are looking forward to watching him grow with our children."

Where Are They Now? (Cont.)
AHOY, THERE, MATEYS! CAPTAIN AND SKIPPER ARE AT THE HELM
"The Captain (formerly known as Fish Fluffington) is shown here perched confidently on the bow of his “ship." He is doing great! He’s the best cat in the world and he is most loved. He now has a recently adopted brother dog (The Skipper, formerly known as Fred) and the two seem to have found their mutual comfort zones around each other. So, all is well on this voyage.  

Here are a few pics of the Skipper enjoying some serious snoozing on his new found “bunk” in the Captain’s quarters after going for a good long walk!

Skip is doing much better now that he’s settling in and getting a feel for his new home and fellow shipmate Captain, the cat. ;-) 

Thanks for all the work you do."
Adopt Me!
TO THE TOP OF THE PORCH, TO THE TOP OF THE WALL!
Meet Lars! 
Lars is our resident climber, and likes to observe the goings-on in Cat Room C from on high. He's made his home at the top-most perch of our tallest cat climb. But when you visit, he'll most definitely come say hello. He's just a young'un at one-and-a-half years old, and still full of kitten mischief. He'd love to zip around your home or bring down a fuzzy cat toy single paw-ed-ly... and he gets along very well with cats and dogs. He's up for adoption at our Range Road facility in Brunswick!
