It’s been a rough couple of months for Pasta, but we are one step closer to everyone’s hard work paying off. Pasta’s second checkup with the vet was so good, that he was given the “all clear” to be available for adoption right before Little Shelter’s 21st Annual Pet-A-Palooza. Due to Pasta’s eyes still being in the healing process, families who were interested in him had to make an appointment for interactions.
A young couple came in to visit him and instantly fell in love. They met with Pasta’s medical team and understood he would need a little extra care until his eyes were fully healed and follow-up appointments with the eye doctor. They were eager to make him part of their family and do whatever it took to make sure he was taken care of. We’re happy to announce that Pasta went off to his furever home the next day!
His new family has sent us many photos of Pasta’s adventures in his new life. He has adjusted well to his new environment and this is the best ending to his story that we could ask for. Even though Pasta has gone off to his furever home, Little Shelter still needs to come up with the bill for Pasta’s surgery. Please make a donation to Pasta’s fund today so we can continue to help other dogs like Pasta get the second chance they so deserve.
Don't be fooled by his colossal size, spend some time with him and you’ll realize he’s just a big baby! Whenever Damascus sees his favorite staff and volunteer members he will talk to them asking for them to play with him. Damascus is a very laid back guy who is content to just lay down at your feet and watch the birds or enjoy a good movie. He doesn’t require a lot of exercise and would be content with a fenced backyard where he can roll in the grass. Come meet Damascus today!
Cali-O is well known at Little Shelter cattery. While we don't know her past, we have found that she absolutely LOVES dogs! She will come right up to a dog and rub against its legs, or paw gently at its nose asking to play. Her favorite dogs to play with are the big ones, her motto is the bigger the better! The second she hears a dog come into the cattery, she rushes out to make a new friend. If you have cat friendly dogs and are looking for a feline addition to the family, Cali-O is the cat for you!
