Reunited this week and home safe are Coronado, Riley, Kylie, Lily and the rascal gang of related dogs lost in Pine Cove.

Affectionately known as “the girls,” Bella and Sophia have been together since birth. shepherd/Aussie-mix sisters, they doted, and gained strength and happiness from each other. We are so happy to announce that they will continue to live together as they were both adopted this weekend during the Living Free event. Paws up to you both and your new adventure.

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 dump site 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 the flies, so no need for that fly swatter. Sunkist is about 2 years old, and Boomer is under a year.

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 to be adopted with. 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 creatures that fly.
