Volunteer Maryellen is Henrietta’s virtual foster. She takes Henrietta to In-N-Out every Monday. She has taught her multiple commands and really would love to tell you how special and amazing this beauty is. Maryellen has also painted a beautiful picture of Henrietta and purchased a brand new plush bed that will be gifted to her adopter. Contact us today to speak with Maryellen about Henrietta.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested in to a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
