One of the #volunteer activities that has become very popular lately is our 'Puppuccino Pals' outing program. Once a volunteer completes all of their in-shelter and dog walking training, they are welcome to bring appropriate dogs outside the shelter on outings. The dogs are chosen by staff according to the outing they will be going on and suited in an 'Adopt Me' vest. This is a great way to get our dogs out of kennel and a little extra visibility in the community. Sometimes they go for a walk in the park, have lunch at an outdoor cafe or indulge in a puppuccino at Starbucks, like Anastasia here! Anastasia had a great time letting the wind blow in her face, getting some licks of whipped cream and enjoying some extra one on one time with a special volunteer. #volunteersrock

We'd like to reintroduce everyone to Jay and Shay. This sweet pair of senior Labrador Retrievers are 8 years old and in search of new forever families to call their own. Jay is easy going, mellow, and always wears a smile on his face. He likes attention and will sit by your side while you watch tv or work on your computer. Shay is a little more reserved and will need a patient, kind-hearted adopter who will allow her to build trust and bond at her own pace. They are very good around most dogs, but prefer dogs who are well-mannered, as they don't appreciate the younger ones who like to jump in their faces. They're not bothered by being in separate kennels, so we feel that they would be totally fine with finding separate homes. They are used to being mostly outside dogs, which shows in their elbows and hips, but they would love to have nice warm places to live out their senior years. They would be fine with kids and other doggie friends, but no kitties please. If you're looking for a low-maintenance companion to spoil with treats and kisses, stop by the shelter to meet Jay and Shay. They've been with us since December, so they also qualify as Lonely Hearts Club members, which means their adoption fee is half price!

This is Zeppelin, formerly Ruger, who earned a new name because of his love for listening to Led Zeppelin music with his owners! This happy pooch not only loves music, but Puppuccinos from Starbucks and giving kisses to his two dog sisters every morning as well! We love this #HappyTail - thanks Zeppelin!
