Kent Animal Care and Control Shelter Event

It was a beautiful day and a mob of people (971) came to the adoption day at the Kent Animal Shelter. What a delight! There were vendors, rescues, music and even food!

Of course the star of the show and why we were there, were the dogs and other animals. They all deserve a forever home with a nice family. That is why so many vendors and folks came out to support and adopt. There were 105 adoptions through the various groups!

Like Penelope Jensen, Intuative Animal Communicator, was a vendor who was able to read for Oso, a newly adopted pup. And many more dogs that were there along with their new owners.

Or Puppy Bat who was adopted by a girl who is in need of a dog in an assistance capacity. This little sandwich muncher just got his new best friend!

Puppy Bat really loves turkey, avacado, bread, lettuce, mayo.....

Batman on the other hand did not find his new owners at the event but just knows you are out there. He is a wonderful boy. Just look at him. He is Batman and looking for his parents to help him become Bruce Wayne his secret identity!

Batman is FOREVER cute. A total chick magnet!

Just look at this face!

Batman was not alone. He was at the Bullseye Rescue booth.

With Ducati. What a beauty! She is such a darling!

And Josie who was a real riot. She says, "You gonna adopt me? Well punk, are ya? Please."

The Pacific Northwest Herpetological Society was really cool. The snakes and reptile folks. I did not take a shot of it but I spent quite a bit of time holding a corn snake. It was pretty cool.

The Chihuahua Rescue Group

This is Odie. He found his new best friend too.

One who stole my heart at the event is Daisy with Homeward Pet. She was so very soft and just a doll with everyone! She is just so beautiful.

Meow Cat Rescue was there with quite a few cats. The kittens are always so cute playing in their big tents.

And the Washington Ferret Rescue had a few adoptions too.

Spoil Animals a local grass roots effort was on hand.

Foggy Creek Cavey Rescue. They looked like Gerbals. Don't know much about them but they sadly, need a rescue too.

Send a card did not have any dogs but they were in full support!

Mini Aussie Rescue Group had some great dogs with them.

German Shepherd Rescue was there with some wonderful dogs, aren't they all!

Like Saxon.What a handsome fellow.

He was so mellow and just really did not have too many worries.

And Rosie who just does not look too much like a German Shepherd. Ha! People are so great. If they see a dog in need, there is no descrimination!

The King Counties booth has a great sign that offers some very sound advice. Be a responsible pet owner. Your pet deserve it since you made the choice to take on their life.

The Seattle Humane Society, working in concert with the County shelter event to help save our needy critters. I snapped off a shot while they were setting up for the day.

Animal Critical Care and Emergency Services.
These guys are great and they need blood. Please call them to set up an appt. to have your dog give blood!

South County Cats Rescue was next to Meow. There were a lot of cats! Please spay and neuter.

Austin, even though he is a Husky, was representing for the Malamute Rescue Group.

There are too many dogs and not enough money to reach everyone who is looking. Please spread the word, dogs, cats, ferrets, horses, reptiles you name it, needs to be rescued. Lets do our part to help those that are in transition and need to be well cared for until they find their forever home.

We can all just pitch in one afternoon and the results are amazing as to what can be accomplished. Especially being able to give love and encouragement to a scared, needy animal.

I don't think there is a better day than that. Don't we all need great days.

What A Great Birthday Weekend!

I had a wonderful time this weekend doing some of my favorite things. It was a nice birthday! I was able to help save 16 dogs from Post Falls Idaho. I met the dogs that were transported from Post Falls and I picked them up in Ellensburg and brought them to Bellevue and Sea Tac and Tacoma.

The dogs that came were Buddy a Lab pup full of energy and life as we know our labs to be!

Sidney a german shepherd mix. He was soft, beautiful and a really nice boy, who wanted to get on with running and playing!

Charley an 8 month old Bull Mastive. He is sweet as can be!

1 shepherd puppy we named Cole. I wish I was able to get a picture of him. What a sweet doll. I held him most of the way home!
A Mama lab and 10 puppies. Those pups were so cute. They were just so tiny!
A pup blue heeler/cattle dog mix.

There was a pregnant Cattle Dog and she ended up having her pups that very night!

Well, they were all wonderful and my Element was full of crates and 14 dogs! I wish I could have taken a picture of that too but it was so hot and I just wanted to get these dogs on the road to their destination and wind in their ears.

They all got great fosters and are going to be looking for permament homes of course. For information on any of these great dogs, contact Perrin at Saving Great Animals.

nDog and Uneek

With the start of the summer, dog events are picking up. How lucky we are to have so many dog lovers who cannot wait to celebrate them!

One of my favorites is nDog (Newcastle Dog) an event celebrating our canine companions and the organizations helping dogs in need. Featuring giveaways and demos by local animal groups, people and their dogs are invited for a fun-filled afternoon!

This event enjoyed great weather, a great turnout and a volume of donations.

Like these great images were taken by Rick Takagi Photography.

Newcastle residents are having a great time and so are their dogs! This is Barley and he is so jazzed that they raised so many donations for all the dogs out there who need it! nDog was kind enough to ask if I would received those donations.

Of course I was delighted and wanted to share them with Animals First Foundation. They in turn were going to be able to use some and also pass along a great amount to Furry Faces Foundation.

The donations were dropped off to me and in the garage they went waiting for Heather with Animals First Foundation.

Heather was hoping that her car would be big enough but if it wasn't, that was a great problem to have!

Looks like it might fit but too early to tell...

Serch and Zappa are on hand to help, wait, just Serch, Zappa skipped the hard labor to go sit on the side yard and scratch her back and eat grass.

Serch could see we weren't too sure if it all would fit so he did his part to help make room.

He says hmmm, this ball looks like it is in the way. I want to do my part of course, so I think I know a way to make room.

Of course I told Serch that these were for the needy dogs so he said, I will just play with it for a few minutes to make sure it is working properly!

With one last push, we made it. Every nook and cranny was full and how GREAT is that!

Thank you to nDog and everyone who donated and all the companies who gave up their samples. From fosters to low income, your donations help folks keep their dogs and afford fostering them! Every little and large bit helps.

Charlie is with his new family. He has come full circle. His new best friend is home all day with him and needs Charlies assistance. How great is that! We wish him the best. He deserves it! Check out these awesome photos.

His family was out there just waiting to find him.

Charlie is an amazing dog. I have been working with him and he is quick to learn and loves to please. He is losing his foster home this Friday. He suffers from being lonely and longing for a permanent place to be loved. His current foster home has really helped him with that. Let's not let him lose that ground!

He is a love bug! He watches TV. He can tell when animals are on vs. people. (Each highlight is a different Charlie video.) He plays with his busy buddy and stuffed hedge hog and really just wants to curl up with you on your lap.

He desperately wants a family with a yard and lots of people to show off all his awesomeness. Does not seem to care about long walks although he enjoys a good car ride. I noticed his favorite is to be with you at home snuggling!

Charlie is 71 lb American Bull Terrier. He is a very short hair, shiny boy who can sit, lay down, stay and leave it with treats on his paws!

He is an amazing talent and would be such a wonderful companion. He is kind-hearted and easy going, doesn't mind cats either! Oh yeah and CHARLIE LOVES KIDS!! LOVES them and wants tons to play with.
