November is adopt a Senior month. So many elderly animals are overlooked just because of their age. But they too are looking for a forever home and can provide many happy years for the adopters. We have two senior dogs, Hope
(pet of the month) and Harley
. We also have a senior cat, Rain
, who was adopted from us 12 years ago and left behind when the owners moved. We desperately need a foster home for Rain. She is super sweet, loving, friendly, and in good health. Please share Rain with your friends and family. Click on their names to learn more about them. There are many in the shelter as well looking for their forever home.
Puppies and more Puppies
In our October newsletter, I mentioned we rescued 3 pregnant mommas. Altogether, they had 18 puppies. They will be available after Thanksgiving on December 2nd (no adoptions Thanksgiving weekend). Apparently, there is something in the water because we received more calls from the shelter for help. They had 3 more pregnant mommas (see photo below). One had 6 puppies and as of now Jasmine and Molly have not birthed yet. I need your help. Please educate those around you of the importance of spaying and neutering their animals. Remember, Valley Vet Non-Profit offers low cost spay and neuter services. They can be contacted at (805) 584-3823. Help get the word out.
