BIG THINGS HAPPEN AT LITTLE SHELTER!
Stories With Happy Endings Are The Best...
Louie Has Been Adopted!
Louie is a testament to the saying,
you're never too old to learn to love! This 10+ year old was found
wandering the streets. Judging by his scars, bad teeth and ears, he had
probably spent most of his life walking them. Little Shelter took him
in, cleaned him up and made him a promise that he would never have to
live on the streets again. What we got in return, surprised everyone.
We quickly found that Louie loves affection, and will bow
his head so you can give him ear rubs and chin scratches. He mews for
attention and LOVES to play, spending much of the afternoon chasing
kitty dancers. After having led such a difficult life, we knew we had
to find him someone who saw just how special he was.
Then in September an adopter came in looking for an older cat who
was playful and loving, but considered overlooked. We introduced her to
Louie and they became best friends on the spot. She knew Louie was the
cat she was looking for and later that week Louie went off to his
furever home. We are so happy for Louie that he will spend his golden
years, safe, warm and loved!

A Tale of Two Friends...
Meet Keys the Calico cat and her best friend Rock the Poodle mix.
These two friends have spent every day together since they were brought
home 10 years ago. Sadly, last month these best buds found themselves in
a local shelter when their owner was no longer able to provide for
them. This was the first time in their lives that they faced being
separated or worse. Little Shelter knew they couldn't let their story
end that way and stepped in, pulling both Rock and Keys to safety.
When they first arrived it was obvious the duo had been through a
lot, their fur coats were in shambles needing grooming and a bath, their
teeth were in bad condition and their mouths had serious infections
requiring surgery. Both Rock and Keys are recovering well and show to be
outgoing and affectionate. Right now Little Shelter is collecting
donations for Rock and Keys care and pretty soon the duo will be ready
for adoption together. Click Here to make a donation to Rock and Keys care.

This Month's Adoption Spotlight:
Don't be fooled by the gray muzzle,
Meg is a dog who is truly young at heart! This 10 year old Mini Pin mix
loves to go on walks. Little Shelter volunteers enjoy taking her out to
events because she wants to spend the entire time walking and taking
in the sights. Meg has a lot of "let's go" energy for her age, but she is also a laid back and calm dog. She loves getting affection and being the center of attention. (click here for more info)
This humble fellow is Peanut,
who originally arrived to Little Shelter with his two brothers when
their owner passed away. Both his brothers have since been adopted and
now Peanut is waiting for his new family to find him. Peanut loves getting affection, especially chin scratches and will look up at you with pleading eyes to cuddle with him.
