Look who went home this week!

Adoptions week of 11-5-11

Our other adoptees this week are two more of the kittens that were abandoned at a remote campsite last month; Owl (who is now Gus) got a ride out to his new home in Spokane, and Eeyore has joined his family, which includes his new best friend, a BIG labrador retriever named Olle.

A senior and two black cats – now THAT’S a successful adoption week!
