Pets of the Week: Zeke and Neiko

Zeke is one darn fun dog. He says, “Do you like to play ball? I love to play ball. Like to hike? I love to hike! Like other dogs? Me too!!”

Zeke is a 5 years old Britney/lab cross. He gets along with other dogs. (Probably not cats and little furry things.) His previous owners moved where they couldn’t take him. Why would anyone move someplace they couldn’t take this guy??? Such a cool boy. He’s house trained, understands no, and he’s been neutered and is up-to-date on his shots. He’s been around men, women and kids. 

Zeke loves to play fetch. Full of energy, this guy will be a wonderful family friend.  
About the Brittany (from the AKC website) The Brittany is strong, quick and agile, requiring exercise and activity to occupy his body and mind. He is a happy and alert dog who possesses willing attitude. Regular brushing is important, but their shorter coats need minimal maintenance.

Neiko is a nice, older gentleman, around 10 years old. He likes dogs and people, but he’s not too crazy about other cats. Once he knows you, he’s relaxes and purrs. And he LOVES to be held.

In his heart, he feels he’s a retired fellow who should be sitting on the beach under an umbrella and with a glass of milk at hand. 

Still, he’ll be perfectly amenable to supervising your home too, if the beach gig is unavailable. Neiko talks to us when we come up to him. 

Come on down and talk Neiko. You'll both enjoy the conversation!

Pets of the Week: Dozer and Popeye

Meet Dozer

Dozer came to the shelter in September as a stray. His owner used drugs and couldn’t care for his dog, so he dumped him. 

Barbara, one of our volunteers, said, “Dozer was such a good companion when we went on an outing to the Empire Mine! He rode quietly in the car on the way over and he thoroughly enjoyed all the sights and sounds. He was friendly with the many people we met, including those on bicycles, and paid little attention dogs we encountered.” Dozer is affectionate, gives freely of his kisses and delights in being with you. 

Meet Popeye

Popeye is such a little sweetheart. He was hit by a car, and had his eye removed, and a hernia repaired. Now he is healthy and safe and ready to get back to work. We figure he was someone’s personal assistant because he’s so eager to help. Let him type, file and work your remote control, and you’ll both be happy!

Pets of the Week: Bridget and Tyler


What can you say about a girl who loves people, loves to play, and loves to walk in the woods? You can say, "I need that dog!"

Bridget was a stray who no one ever came looking for. We scratch our heads and wonder how anyone could lose such a girl and not come looking for her, and they've had plenty of time. She's been here since June 2012.

Bridget walks well on a leash and is eager to be with you. She's great with kids, and people, and with some proper introduction, can be good with your dog. She would prefer that you don't put cats in her way, though. She might just want to play chase, but her idea of play probably isn't the same as the cat's.

Bridget is up-to-date on her vaccines, and has been spayed. Lucky you, that she's still here!


Tyler will blow your socks off! He's gorgeous and funny and LOVES attention! Which is why it's so shocking that he's still here. He came to us in April of 2012 skunked. Yes, he'd been sprayed, and was skinny and sad. The stink has been gone for months, but poor Tyler is still here. Still, we kinda have him tucked away in Cheryl's office and only show him to special people. We have been ordered to find him a good home, so here's your chance. 

He's glossy, and solid black, with the most amazing orange eyes. And he's large too! Tyler has been neutered and is current on his vaccines. Come meet him; and we'll take you into the inner sanctum---the secret password is "Tyler."
