Bailey May

Meet Bailey May, she is a good girl. About 40 pounds of lovin’. We do believe she is a small pit bull mix. She loves her people and would do best in a household as the only dog. She LOVES to play, so an active household would love her!! FYI, she should be the only dog in the home as she has LOADS of energy and might bug a dog or two… Where are all of our active adopters? She is calling for you! She knows her name, can sit, understands no and is doggy door trained.  She is a HUGE snuggler/lap dog.  Loves to lay on the couch and sleep on the bed with her people.  Does well with chew toys but she gets bored easily.

Fraser is a great little dog! He is about 10yo and 11 pounds. He is good around other dogs and seemed to be ok with the cat that hangs out at the vet clinic though cat exposure has been limited to that. He is house trained and will ask to be let out, he is also crate trained. He currently sleeps in his crate and goes in and out during the day at will (door is left open). He also does well on a leash. He can be somewhat hesitant to get around people but eventually warms up and loves to cuddle! Medical conditions: Cushing & Diabetes. He is stabilized! Numbers came back great today, he will need another curve test in 2-months.

What can we say about Miss Zoey? She has finished a board and train program as she had a rough start to this world of ours. However, she is making leaps and bounds because she has had some stability and training! She is 5+ years old and about 60 pounds. She is a pretty mellow dog. She needs a fenced yard.  She was a diamond in the rough and has now become a true gem. She needs a place to go NOW. Can you foster or adopt her? Zoey is a sweet girl who is looking for her perfect home. She loves snuggles and pets and is learning how fun toys and playtime are! Strangers and new places can be terrifying, but she just needs the right family to be patient with her and show her that the world isn’t such a scary place. She needs to be the only dog in the home. She has learned lots of basics like sit, down, heel, and stay, but she is a little stubborn so needs some patience while continuing to improve her skills and build her confidence.

Blue Eyes

Blue Eyes is an 11 year old snowshoe cat.  His people moved and left him outside the house.  He was scratching to get in.  Isn’t that disgusting?  This boy is absolutely a great cat and deserves a great home.  He LOVES to sit in your lap.  As soon as you sit down, he walks right up in to your lap and sits there.  He gets along with other cats and I believe he will do fine in a home with dogs with proper time and introduction protocol.  As long as there are human laps around for him to sit and snuggle in, that’s really all this loveable guy wants.  Most of his teeth are gone, so be aware that small bit dry food and wet food must be his diet.  Currently in a foster home in Evergreen.  Complete a cat application on the rescue’s website – you don’t want to miss out on Blue Eyes.

Monkey came to EAPL after being either abandoned or she was just a lucky stray.  Lovely lady, who manages to rescue many cats a year from a nearby park where folks tend to leave animals or they congregate because of folks feeding, happened upon Monkey who caught her attention as being in need of a home.  She is a beautiful, petite Tortie girl who is about 1 1/2 years old.

Initially Monkey was extremely shy after her move here – hiding under a bed, only venturing out after lights were off.  But eventually, curiosity and treats got the better of her.  She now spends her days curled up or playing with the other cats.  Monkey likes other cats and needs a companion.  Would do okay with older children who wouldn’t rush at them.  She is at EAPL’s Adoption Center at Chow Down in Evergreen – complete a cat application at www.eapl.com

Tatum and Hayden

From the previous rescueTatum and Hayden came out of a group of cats a woman had been caring for.  She built an outdoor enclosure for them and they were well cared for and had cat trees, beds and boxes in the enclosure.  When the woman passed, the rescuer found 2 that were tame.  Hayden is about 6 years old and vetted.

EAPL Update:  Hayden is a bit more reserved, but still responds well when you talk to him and pet him.  These situations where folks have too many cats are heartbreaking.  While they were well cared for, none of these cats received the attention they deserved, so it’s reasonable to assume they will be hesitant and nervous upon arrival here and then in a new home.  As expected Hayden can be wary of new folks, but once he knows you, he is one wonderful cat who loves pets.  He is at EAPL Adoption Center at Chow Down in Evergreen – complete a cat application on the rescue’s website to meet her.  www.eapl.com

Meet Jackie, she is a 1-2 year old 50 pound sweetheart. She has a good amount of energy and is sweet and playful. She does need a home that is aware that she is new to discipline and sometimes loud voices/noises turn her into a shrinking violet. We are working on manners, but she does know how to ring the bells to go outside to go to the bathroom and will go into her crate when asked. She loves toys (hard chew toy are her favorite)and running around the backyard, she does have a foster sister that she plays with sometimes but is also happy to keep herself occupied. Jackie is great with getting love from humans and likes meeting new ones at home, during a walk she is interested but doesn’t have to go meet them.

Patrick has heartworm and has started treatment in his foster home. An adopter would need to commit to continue the treatment for the next couple of months, which will require, among other things, that he engage in very limited activity. The cost of Patrick’s heartworm treatment will be paid for by EAPL at Patrick’s current veterinarian in Arvada.

Winnie the Roo

Winnie the Roo is going to be 9yo this year. She had to have gallbladder surgery, a mass removed, and a dental.  At some point prior to EAPL both of her eyes had to be removed.  She’s happy, playful and super snuggly.  So snuggly that she loves to sleep in bed between pillows to feel secure!  This is one very very special little girl and so full of life. She does not let her blindness stop her at all.  She can follow you anywhere as she has good hearing and sense of smell to help guide her along her way,  Her perfect home would be:  another playful dog her size to be with, a secure yard to roam in, minimal stairs or somewhere that she can be closely observed and precautions put into place so that she cannot fall.  No children due to her special needs. She loves car rides.

Patch and Vanessa

Two cats, Patch and Vanessa, were rescued out in Brighton on a farm where there is a small colony of feral cats.  Every so often a friendly stray or cat who was abandoned makes there way to a place like this that offers shelter and food.  Luckily, the family who owns the farm is on the lookout for cats who have wandered in.  If they are able to be handled, then we get a call.  We’ve taken several from there over the past year or so; they have all transitioned well into new homes and added much love to their adopted families.  Vanessa is a beautiful girl, but still nervous.  She also is sweet, but needs a bit of time to settle into her new home.  Both had a car ride, stay overnight in a new home, vetting next day and boom – finally here at their foster home in Evergreen.  Then she had a dental and was on pain meds which she did not like.  So she had a little set back in being afraid, but is moving forward with socializing now.  Complete a cat application on the rescue’s website.   www.eapl.com
