Kitten Season! Bottle babies and more

Bottle Baby

Kitten season is in full swing here at Forget Me Not. Poppie’s babies got all the early press, from the novelty of having been born at the shelter… but now that they have all been chosen by adopters (and will all be going home in 7-10 days), the newcomers can have their moments in the spotlight!

Our primo kitten foster mama, Charlene, has been caring for 6 bottle babies who arrived from a feral colony at about 10 days old, plus another mom-cat and her litter of 5 who arrived when the kittens were just a few days old. Luckily, she has help from some of our other kitten-loving volunteers, like Kelsea and Carlene and Laura!

Volunteer to help dogs

Forget Me Not Animal Shelter now has both cat buildings and dog buildings open and accepting adoptable pets – YAY!

Unfortunately, the only way we can continue accepting dogs into the adoption program is if more people sign up to volunteer as dog caregivers. We are losing two of our primary dog caregivers, and will no longer have enough volunteers to provide the necessary daily care for us to safely and humanely house dogs. Please do not make the mistake of thinking “someone else will do it” – so far, Someone Else has not stepped up, leaving us in danger of closing just when we finally got going. We need your help!

There are 14 caregiver shifts per week: 7 morning shifts, generally starting around 8:30 (although a bit earlier or later is OK), and 7 evening shifts, generally starting 5:30-6:30.

We need dog walkers!

We are currently in desperate need of dog walkers! We have too many dogs, and too few people to walk them.

If you’re someone in the Republic, WA, area who might volunteer to walk dogs for us, email us at info@forgetmenotshelter.org .
