Look who went home from 1/15 to today!

Adopted to 2-4-12

Bailey, Molly, and Ayla

It’s no secret that the bulk of our adoptions happen on the one day per month we make our adopted pet delivery to the Seattle area; that’s where most of our adopters are found. There are always a handful of adoptions that take place in between the Seattle area deliveries, and the past few weeks found us celebrating three adoptions of hard to place pets.

Bailey, the senior dog, has become a happy Canadian resident; Molly, our long-timer cat who joined the shelter back in July 2011, found a spot in the hearts of a local couple; and Ayla, our long-timer dog, has found a forever home with a family that drove hundreds of miles round-trip just to pick her up, because they couldn’t wait another day to have her in their home.

New adoptable dog: AYLA

Ayla is a beautiful hound/pitbull mix, about 5 years old, who was abandoned by her owner – they went “on vacation” two months ago and left some friends in charge of bringing food to Ayla, who was left outside; unfortunately, despite being contacted, the owners have never come back from “vacation” and the property they were renting was sold, leaving Ayla homeless.

Ayla isn’t very fond of other dogs, though she apparently lived with some before (the other dogs on the property disappeared, unfortunately); we are able to teach her to tolerate the other shelter dogs, but don’t recommend adding her to a home with a dominant dog unless you are a very experienced pack leader type. She definitely is a “people” dog – she’d much rather be with a person than with another dog. She has been reported to be not very good . . . → Read More: New adoptable dog: AYLA
