Onyx and Julian Engaged!

Aug 2017

We are excited to announce the event of the century here at the Animal Shelter, Onyx and Julian are getting married! They have lived together since they were both brought in as strays by different people on the same day (January 30th 2017). They really love each other and we would like them to go to a loving home together, so it just made sense that they should get married. Here are some of the photos from their engagement and we will post updates from the wedding as well! If you would like to get them a wedding gift here is their registry: http://ow.ly/MJMr30elTO7

Our super senior Rex is looking for some time away from the shelter! He is an outstanding dog that loves people, is good with other dogs and while curious about cats here, doesn’t seem like he wants to chase them. If you are interesting in giving Rex some quality time away from the stress of the shelter or you are interested in our foster program, please visit: http://animalshelterwrv.org/foster-care-profile/

Dog Days of Summer a Success!

Aug 2017

Wow. What a night! This annual event is a huge contributor to the Shelter’s annual income – one that helps keep the animals fed, happy, healthy, and ready for finding their new homes every day of the year.

All of us here at the Shelter greatly appreciate everyone who attended, bid on auction items, spread the word, and cheered on the success of the Animal Shelter. Thank you!

During this year’s event guests bid on some great auction items including: a trip to London, an African photo safari, a whitewater rafting trip down the salmon river and more. There was also the traditional “Parade of Dogs” and four of these happy pups (Sophie, Samsung, Dani, and Dell) found their forever homes!

We also encourage you to check out this year’s annual video. It includes some touching stories of adopters, volunteers, and community members who address what it looks like to live in a humane community and how that touches all of our lives.

Pete is a doll of a dog that has had some trouble being a confident canine! He’s still a youngster, with a ton of potential, so we are looking for a foster home for him to help him blossom! We want him to go into a foster home with another confident canine to learn from and we firmly believe the sky is the limit for this little guy! If you are interested in fostering Pete or learning how to become a foster parent, please visit us at: http://animalshelterwrv.org/foster-care-profile/  #fosterfriday
