This is Hamlyn (the shelter named her Hamlet REALLY who names these puppies?)  She is the last one of the 7 in her litter. She is just 18 weeks old (estimated birthday 6/9/2017) about 18 pounds, spayed, and up to date on her vaccines. She is enjoying having a normal life as happy playful fun loving tug-of-war playing little pups. Hamlyn is just toooooooooo cute with those long ears! In person you can really see her deep brindle coat – these pictures really just do not capture it.  You have to see her in person!  She is wondering why is no one picking her?  She is cute, has floppy ears, uses a doggie door, loves to play, thinks she is a lap warmer.  Wouldn’t you like to meet her and show her all the wonders a Catahoula girl will enjoy in Colorado hiking and walking with her new family, going on car rids camping whatever you do she will love to do it with you!  Even if it is to sit and watch a movie!

Monkey’s original owner made all the preparations to take him for her move out of the country, and at the last minute, found out that requirements had changed where he was unable to go.  Having to relinquish at the last minute broke her heart, but no other options remained.  He’s been a great addition to the Cat Adoption Center since arriving.  A favorite among the volunteers who gave him lots of attention when hearing his story.  Monkey is a great boy – very loving – enjoys pets – gets along well with the other residents.  Come to Chow Down in Evergreen – have some fun with funky Monkey.  He is usually in a condo above the cages, but readily comes out for attention.

Millie  is 3-years-old.  We gave her a birthday of 3/4/2014 she is a  70+ pound female mrn Dog / Shepherd / Lab mix with an absolutely beautiful coat. She is affectionate, loyal, trainable, loves to hike and play ball, is perfectly potty trained, doesn’t chew or get into anything, and loves being around her foster Mom! She is fabulous with children and loves having kids hanging all over her. She appears to have it rough out on the streets and would do best as an only dog and a home with no cats. Update from her foster mom regarding her training: She is responding well to training and is very SMART. She loves to be with her person.

Poor Pixie, a very sweet 8 1/2 year old gray and white girl, has been with us for a YEAR.  She was abandoned when her owners moved away and left many animals left behind, so animal control got involved.  However no one realized that Pixie had been left until she showed up at a neighbors house.  She has come into her own and is just a great cat.  She loves to be pet and responds very well to love and attention.  Not a mean bone in her body to people – doesn’t like female cats very much.  Pixie deserves a chance for a forever home.  Now housed at our Cat Adoption Center at Chow Down in Evergreen.

Baby was rescued from a shelter where their main option is to adopt out as barn cats.  Many times they find cats brought to their shelter that are social or have the ability to be socialized and they want to give them a better life.  From their volunteers: “Baby is a 3 yr old female brought to the shelter from a hoarding home. She is friendly with shelter staff, albeit a little shy at first meeting”.  Baby is now at our Cat Adoption Center at Chow Down in Evergreen, where she is still shy, but is coming out of her shell and loves pets and attention.

Scooter is a Chihuahua, he is about 10 yo (best guess, we gave him a birthday of 6/14/2007) and he is currently 7 pounds. Things looked pretty bad for Scooter when his person developed dementia and forgot to feed him and his Great Dane brother.  It all took a turn for the worse when he was discovered and taken to a high kill shelter. Thanks to the kind ladies that reach out to rescues from these shelters, Scooter and his brother made it to fosters but not together. Now, Scooter is so happy to eat again but no doubt, missing his person and his brother. He is looking much better after a few meals but still has a long way to go.  Scooter gets along with every dog and the cat and he really enjoys being next to a person. This little guy is just about 7 years old and is a gentle, loving sole. It is our hope for him that he can find a forever person and maybe even a big brother again.
