Reunited this week were Chacarro and Zoe, and the three related dogs lost in Pine Cove.

Ladybug can be a lady most of the time. But bring out the football, Frisbee or anything that even looks like a toy, and she’s ready with all fours to play. She is a young shepherd/husky-mix abandoned at our dumpsite with two other dogs. She loves to hike, walk or just plain be at your side. Ladybug is currently in leash training, and knows the doggy door, sit, stay and off. Such a smart girl and what a great companion dog for an active family.


Sunkist, known as Sunny, has been very busy keeping up with the kittens in the cattery. Boomer, the orange tabby, is her son, and that means she keeps him in line. Boomer, short for Boomerang, keeps his day exciting by showing his great running skills, as well as climbing the cat tree before anyone else can. This kitten shows great success in catching flies, so no need for that fly swatter. Sunkist is about 2 years old, and Boomer is under a year.

Harley Dog

Introducing H.D. Harley Dog, a large male mastiff-mix found wandering and injured in Mountain Center. Harley will visit the vet to have his head and eye wounds healed. He is a gentle soul, about 4 years old. He is learning leash training but already knows sit and shake, and is very capable of flashing those brown eyes to make you fall in love.

Sadie and Carlie

We have several cats who have already chosen their best fur buddy with whom to be adopted. Sadie and Carly, the tux identical twins, would love to be together forever. Pepper, a young black and white female, can often be seen cuddled closely with Tommy, our large gray tabby. Their favorite past time is in the outdoor cattery keeping up with all flying creatures.
