Jen started volunteering when she moved here from California as a way to meet like-minded animal folks. She fell in love with the Shelter and fellow volunteers right away. Jen’s skills are diverse in her volunteering- from assisting with our humane education programs to walking dogs and bringing them to visit senior centers, to making elaborate costumes for photoshoots, Jen makes every day a little bit brighter for both Shelter pets and staff!
We want to send a big thank you to all the volunteers who came out to the Blessing of the Animals this weekend! There was a great turnout and fun was had by all. Check out the pictures below.

On Friday of last week, we welcomed a group of dogs at the Friedman Airport who were traveling with Dog Is My CoPilot, Inc. from a Shelter in California. This certainly isn’t a first as we’ve gotten dogs from Texas, California, and more in recent months. However, this time we had quite a big group – in total nine dogs came off the plane to find their new homes here in the Valley! Below are just a few who are available for adoption. The rest will be available shortly!

Isabella Boylston and her fellow dancers who were in town for their stunning set of performances through Ballet Sun Valley were gracious enough to take some time out of their busy rehearsal schedule to play with adoptable dogs and kittens.
Isabella, niece of long-time Animal Shelter volunteers and supporters Kathy and Greg Boylston, did a little dancing with adoptable dogs Rex and Cooper (who were perhaps not quite as graceful as the dancer herself) while kitten Oliver chased her ribbon.
We’re so grateful to Isabella for helping show off our pets and get the word out about how great shelter animals are! And the dancers all seemed to enjoy few moments of rest with a furry friend.

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
