By the sounds of things, all the remaining dogs except for Bandit have found places to go. This is not 100% confirmed but the source is good. A huge thanks to all the volunteers and staff who personally took dogs into their homes or who found placement for them in fosters or rescues. You know none of this good work would have been possible without your efforts.
There are still a lot of cats and small domestics remaining and any help finding homes for them would be greatly appreciated. The THS will close for several weeks so fostering arrangements for the duration of the closure for some of these animals may be accommodated.
Here are three FIV kittens who are looking for homes (descriptions from THS volunteer):
Arnie – Arnie is a little guy with a big nose and a teeny little meow. The poor guy came into the THS over a year ago, so scared and shy. Now he’s a big cuddle monkey – his favorite place to be is cuddling in your arms with one paw on each of your shoulders and nuzzling into your neck. And his second favorite place? Rolling around on your lap, purring and trilling away! Poor Arnie has suffered the fate of so many other black cats – passed by because he’s hard to see at the back of a cage in a shelter full of kitties.
Doc – Doc must be wondering what he keeps doing wrong…he keeps ending up in a cage at the THS. Nothing, Doc! Poor Doc was returned to the THS recently after a year in a home because his owners got another cat and they didn’t want the new cat getting FIV. Poor Doc. This cute little boy is still has his kitten-like playfulness - both with other kitties and people. He’s got big ears and a handsome little face. But the cutest thing about Doc has to be how his little tongue sticks out when he’s happily enjoying being brushed and petted. And, of course, his love of giving little kisses.
Biscuits – Biscuits is one of the funniest cats you’ll ever meet! You’ll usually find this tough-looking guy cuddled up with the little stuffed animal or chatting to people passing by his cage. The poor guy looks a little rough around the edges, with the tell-tale torn ears of many FIV+ cats, which may be why he’s been at the THS for almost 2 years. When he first arrived, Biscuits was very shy about being handled – loved to be brushed but got soooo nervous when he was picked up. But with calm reassurance Biscuits has learned to trust and now loves to be carried around with his chin on your shoulder purrrring away. Hopefully you can see past Biscuit’s tough exterior to the loving, affectionate, funny-guy inside.
