From Sanctuary One (Jacksonville, Oregon 97530)

Debbie is happy to announce that our straw-bale Chicken Cottage is a huge hit! And she should know, she lives there! This Barred Rock and her five feathered friends are the first lucky chickens to come home to roost in our special arched straw-bale cottage. They enjoy scratching around in the large yard during the day and snuggling up inside at night. They were transferred to us from White Oak Education Center, so are quite social and will be a fantastic addition to our education program here at Sanctuary One.

Looking to Adopt?

Most, but not all, of the Sanctuary’s animals are available for adoption because the more animals we adopt out, the more animals we can take in. If you are interested in adopting Debbie or one of our other Sanctuary residents, please visit our web site.

Can’t Adopt, But Still Want to Help?

Enroll in our Animal Sponsorship Program. Sponsors make a long-term commitment to support a rescued animal by making contributions on a monthly basis through our online enrollment with Network for Good. A minimum $10 a month commitment is required to become a sponsor. Our sponsors ensure that the Sanctuary is able to provide on-going high quality care to the resident animals of Sanctuary One.

Once you enroll we’ll post mail you a color photograph and biography of an animal in need, and you will receive a VIP invitation for a tour of Sanctuary One.

From the Humane Society of Boulder Valley (Boulder, Colorado 80301)

Dawn, a beautiful, mature Golden Retriever, is the celebrated 50,000th dog to be transported aboard PetSmart Charities® Rescue Waggin’® vehicle. She arrived at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley on Tuesday, after making the journey from Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

At a joyful celebration at our shelter, Dawn walked down the red carpet from the Rescue Waggin’ vehicle with about 30 other dogs. She represents the thousands of dogs and puppies who board one of the four Rescue Waggin’ vehicles across the country every month in search of new homes, and the Humane Society of Boulder Valley is extremely proud to be a part of the program!

Launched in 2004, PetSmart Charities® Rescue Waggin’® program moves adoption dogs from communities with high pet populations and not enough homes to animal shelters where adoption dogs are more in demand.

The Humane Society of Boulder Valley is one of 21 destination shelters nationwide capable of accepting dogs and the only shelter in the Great Plains region of the U.S. that works with other shelters in the Rescue Waggin’ program to save lives. Since joining the program in 2007, the Humane Society of Boulder Valley has taken in and found homes for 8,294 (nearly 17 percent) of the 50,000 dogs transferred.

Help us continue our vital transfer programs and save more lives!

From medical treatments to behavior modification and basic needs such as food and shelter, we need your support to care for these animals until we can find them new homes. Together, we work toward finding a home for every animal in need.

Some animals, like people, just belong together. PARL Pals are pets that may have lived together all of their lives or maybe they just bonded during their stay at the Providence Animal Rescue League (Providence, Rhode Island 02903).

Either way, PARL just can’t bear to see them separated! It’s their hope that a special adopter will feel the same way as PARL does and adopt them together. To make the deal even sweeter, PARL has made their adoption fees a 2-for-1 deal!

From Providence Animal Rescue League (Providence, Rhode Island 02903)

We are always watching trends in our shelter to be sure that we are on top of the best ways to serve our animals and community. Today we wanted to share an interesting and visually beautiful trend with you…we have nine beautiful brindle dogs available for adoption!


What is brindle you say? Brindle is a coat coloring pattern  that is sometimes described as “tiger striped”, although the brindle pattern is more subtle than that of a tiger’s coat. The streaks of color are usually darker than the base coat, which is often tawny or grayish, although very dark markings can be seen on a coat that is only slightly lighter.

Say hello to Koopa, Ruby, Rusty, Brodie, Weezie, Gina, Lucky, Danny, and Beethoven, our  brindle dogs that we currently have available for adoption.

And remember, “Brindle is Beautiful!” Pass it on…

From Simply Cats Adoption Center (Boise Idaho 83709)

The Meet Your Match & Feline-ality Adoption Program is a research-based program developed by the ASPCA that pairs distinct personalities (feline-alities) with adopters whose lifestyle fit them best.

Good matches help make strong bonds, and bonding is the key to successful adoptions.
Simply Cats is PROUD to announce that we are now utilizing the Meet Your Match program to pair adopters with their new feline friends. To our knowledge, we are the only adoption center in Idaho utilizing this program.

The research-based Feline-ality Adoption Program is built around the Feline-ality Assessment that   reliably predicts how an individual cat is likely to behave when the cat arrives at their new home. In addition, the Cat Adopter Survey identifies the aspects of the adopter’s preferences, expectations, and lifestyle that correlate with specific feline-alities.

All cats over 1 year old will be evaluated at our facility using the assessment developed by the ASPCA. Once evaluated, each cat’s profile will be posted in their respective adoption room. All adopters will be asked to complete the Adopter Survey in order to identify the appropriate cats for adoption consideration. (more…)

From the Humane Society of Charlotte (Charlotte, North Carolina 28203)

Last week at the Humane Society of Charlotte, Sam, a very sweet shepherd mix (10 years old) alumni that was adopted as a puppy at HSC, along with his sister, Maddie, an aussie-shepherd mix (4 years old), also an alumni from a California Humane Society, were returned to us.  Here is their story and we hope that a loving family will reach out to help these beautiful dogs.

Prior to Sam and Maddie returning to us, a volunteer noticed a  reference to the Humane Society of Charlotte on Craig’s List; it was copy reaching out with the hopes of finding a safe and loving home for them so they could remain together. The volunteer contacted us and we immediately reached out to the adopter, who was trying desperately to re-home his two canine family members due to serious health problems that were resulting in relocating out of the country.

The emotional day came last week, when he surrendered his two friends. It was one of the most difficult things that an owner can do. Both dogs are healthy and up-to-date on their shots and are both housebroken. Sam is a big happy goofball, who loves the kennels and the excitement of the people; his sister. Maddie is a sweetheart but is very timid and just wants to find her new family.

If you are hoping to add two very special dogs to your family, please contact us about Sam and Maddie. We are making accommodations for them in the kennels so they can be together, but they need to have the comfort of a new home full of love and comfort.

Even with the struggle that their owner is going through, he still emails us daily to check on them and we would love to share the great news that they are in a safe and loving home where they belong … together.

Please help us make this happen this week …. They deserve a happy ending.

Please contact our office at 704-377-0534 and let us know if you’re the perfect family for these wonderful dogs …. thank you so much!
