Quinn is a very sweet medium-haired gray tabby. She is two-years-old and her original owner had to give her up because she had too many pets and felt she would do better in a quieter household. While a bit shy at first, she’ll open up with a little petting. She’d really love to meet you.

Pepper was left behind when his owner passed away and the family put him outside. It’s definitely their loss. Pepper is a wonderful boy. He is about eight-years-old and is a shorthaired black kitty with white on his stomach. He is very quiet and thoughtful, and also very loving. He’s been really great with the other cats. Could you possibly provide Pepper’s second forever home?

Nikita, a sweet and friendly shorthaired white and gray kitty, had her life disrupted when her owner ran into personal problems and had to relinquish her. She was a favorite in the cat room because she gets along with everyone – cats and humans alike. Nikita has tabby marks and is about eight-years-old. She’s waiting to give all her love to her forever human. Maybe it’s you.

Be My Valentine

dog wash in EvergreenMisty was a sweet kitty living as a stray cat in someone’s outbuilding. When the local animal rescue was notified, they talked with the owners and learned they didn’t want the cat and were planning to kill her. When she was picked up, to the surprise of everyone, she had five babies hidden under junk in the building.  The rescuers rounded up mama and all babies and brought them to the shelter. Misty was very loving and seemed to be calm and content living at the shelter.
She greeted her rescuers every morning with purrs and leg rubs. When her babies were old enough, they were spayed and neutered and each of them a found loving home of their very own. Misty herself was also spayed and found a wonderful, indoor home with plenty of affection and cozy places to lounge.

You could express the greatest act of love this Valentine’s Day by adopting a rescue animal. Adopt from a shelter – it might be the most rewarding thing you ever do.

What Have You Read Lately ~ Dog Years

Dog Years by Mark Doty.

Award-winning memoirist and poet Mark Doty explores, with compassion and intelligence, the complicated, loving territory inhabited by devoted dogs and their loyal humans. In 1994, when the author’s longtime lover was dying of AIDS, beloved pet Arden kept the surviving partner afloat. A new adoptee, the rambunctious Beau, in his “sloppy dog way,” becomes a part of the tribe and carries some of the burden of grief. Doty says Beau “carried something else for me too, which was my will to live.”

Dog Years shows both the abundant pleasures and unavoidable heartbreak of loving people, life, and especially dogs. As someone who is in love with a dog, I found this book to be and oracle of truth. For those who have yet to love a dog, it will be a revelation.  ~  Ann Patchett

Huck ~ A Love Story

Huck is a page-turning, heart-stopping story about resilience, the kindness of strangers, and determination. It is a story about hope, a story the reader will neither put down nor forget.

“This story takes place in the most familiar places – a doctor’s office, a family’s kitchen, a suburban high school, and the woods out back. It’s a modern-day myth that happened to be true. It’s a story in which wonderful things occurred because people believed in themselves and in each other. It’s a story about the power of love to change our world.”

— Caroline Kennedy
