UPDATE: Gus Gus found a foster home

by Joseph Romero on May 31, 2014

Fostered stamp 2

Name: Gus Gus
Age: 1 1/2 years old
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Foster Period: 7-10 days

Meet Gus Gus. This super sweet cat was brought to us with a shattered leg, it was so bad in fact that the poor guy had to have it amputated. But have no fear, Gus Gus bounced back with flying colors! Something like a simple amputation hasn’t slowed him down in the slightest. It’s almost as if he’s only had three legs the entire time. 🙂

But the amputation isn’t the reason that Gus Gus is in need of a foster home, that’s healed beautifully. He is in need of a foster home for a possible stress related issue. Gus Gus has been missing the litter box from time to time. Since this is a new development, all signs point to shelter stress as well as that whole pesky amputation thing. We’d like to find him a home for the next 7-10 days to see how he does in a real world environment. We’ll supply you with everything you’ll need. Food, cat attract (helps cats find their litter box), toys, litter boxes… the whole nine yards!

Please let us know if you are available to help with this sweet cat.

Wonderful, Magificent Dogs!

by Mimi Dietderich on May 29, 2014

Hi everyone! We have several dogs that are looking for foster homes!


Name: Aloha

Age: 1 year and 6 months

Breed: Airedale Terrier/Hound Mix

Foster Period: 3+ weeks

Aloha hails all the way from the beautiful land of Hawaii! Aloha is being treated for an ear infection and simply needs to be in a home until her next recheck in 1 week. At this point her progress will be checked and we will determine if Aloha will need to remain in foster to continue her healing or if she will be good to go on the adoption floor! The best thing about Aloha is that there are no medications or special treatments that you need to administer. All you need to do is take her in and enjoy your time together.

robo cop

Name: Robo Cop

Age: 7 months

Breed: Mastiff

Foster Period: 2-4 weeks

Why, who is this handsome fellow? Robo Cop received his odd name due to his unfortunate eye condition which caused his eyelashes to rub against his eyes resulting in an uncomfortable situation. Recently, Robo Cop had a Bilateral Entropion surgery that has yielded wonderful results thus far. Robo Cop will need to have a cone on at all times and will need to go to a home that can keep an eye on his doings so that he doesn’t irritate the stitches on his eyelids. Robo Cop will also be leaving with several medications including an oral pain killer and eye drops to help facilitate his healing. You would imagine that this level of discomfort would break a dog’s spirits…well not Robo Cop! If you want to meet the wiggliest, friendliest, cuddliest dog in the shelter please consider fostering Robo Cop!
