Today was our monthly transport closer to Seattle. Six lucky pets joined their new families today, with everyone meeting in Monroe!
HOSS spent the whole 6-hour drive barking excitedly at every vehicle (particularly white pickup trucks) and person we passed! He was absolutely THRILLED to meet his forever-playmate Sky, and took to his people right away. (They wisely brought him a gentle leader harness, which immediately helped curb his over-enthusiastic approach to, well, everything). He’s in just the right place, with a dog that is as joyful as he is, and people who can give him the perfect combination of love and training. YAY!
MELINDA and FANTASIA, now known as SHADOW and SHILO, got to go to a home together, where they are going to have a girl of their own to play with; they will love that.

Spring is here, when our thoughts turn to… KITTENS!
Unfortunately, this year we have many juvenile and adult cats who have not yet found their forever homes.
Along with these beautiful cats, we have one amazing dog who just can’t seem to get noticed… he’s seen dozens of other dogs come in to the shelter, and then leave in two weeks, or a month, or two months, with their new people. Teague continues to wait, but he is growing depressed (see "The Big Black Dog Dilemma, featuring Teague").
We know many of you have already filled that empty spot in your family with a Forget Me Not pet, or perhaps you have used Forget Me Not to help a pet find a new home.
We’re not asking you to adopt one of these pets (though it would be lovely if you did).

An October ringworm outbreak at the shelter has left eighteen of our twenty-one adoptable pets infected. Infected pets include:
Alameda Adriano (adopted after infection) Acosta Aguafria SilverBelle ChiangMai Siobhan Wasabe Lambert Fantasia Doolittle Melinda Six unnamed leMutte puppies
This leaves only Cupid (who is on “longtimers discount”), Surat (currently on “adoption pending”), and Zorro uninfected.
All of these pets (except, of course, Adriano, since he’s already with his new owner) entered treatment on Monday, November 1.
It is important to understand that ringworm is nothing to be afraid of. It is, in fact, even less serious of an infection than athlete’s foot or those mushrooms in your lawn. Stay tuned for a blog about ringworm and why it’s nothing to fear.
Clockwise from upper left: Doolittle, Fantasia, Surat, Chili
Two female kittens were listed Tuesday 10/26 from a feral TNR operation, Fantasia and Doolittle.
In addition, a male Siamese mix adult, Surat, was listed Tuesday 10/26.
Finally, Chili, a chihuahua mix, was listed Saturday 10/30.
Ten other cats and another dog remain adoptable. For the latest updates on them, visit our Cats and Dogs pages.
