We should have been neutered, we should have been spayed, now we suffer the consequence of the errors THEY made.
If only they'd trained us, if only we knew...
we'd have done what they asked us and worshiped them, too.
We were left in the backyard, or worse -let to roam- now we're tired and lonely and out of a home.
They dropped us off here and they kissed us good-bye... "Maybe someone else will give you a try."
So now here we are, all confused and alone... in a shelter with others who long for a home.
The kind workers come through with a meal and a pat, with so many to care for, they can't stay to chat,
They move to the next kennel, giving each of us cheer... we know that they wonder how long we'll be here.
We lay down to sleep and sweet dreams fill our heads.. of a home filled with love and our own cozy beds.
Then we wake to see sad eyes, brimming with tears – our friends filled with emptiness, worry, and fear
If you can't adopt us and there's no room at the Inn – could you help with the bills and fill our food bin?
We count on your kindness each day of the year – can you give more than hope to everyone here?
Please make a donation to pay for the heat... and help get us something special to eat.
The shelter that cares for us wants us to live, and more of us will, if more people will give.

She is doing awesome training and is well on her way to acheiving her CGC (canine good citizenship) She's a great dog to have a lot of fun with. She does well with other dogs and loves to go for walks.
Meet Ms.Chrys! Chrys is only a year old. She is a very sweet girl. She's not a big fan of getting held but she'll love the daylights on you. She's a beautiful loving girl. Poor baby was left in a broken carrier in the middle of a rotary in the blazing heat. By complete luck a man driving saw out of the corner of his eye there was something in the bag. She was one very lucky little girl! She's a quiet girl that loves to hang out with her human's. P>
Do you want to adopt or have a dog your home owners insurance policy will not allow you to have. Homeowners with breed exceptions on their insurance policy can get this policy and still own the breed of their choice because it insures the dog not the home. http://lkalmanson.com/dog.html. Renters, and dogs that have a past bite record can also get insured.
We are in need of the following items: clay cat litter canned gravy dog food laundry soap bleach Purina cat chow (blue bag) bones (right from the meat department) Frontline (flea & tick treatment) any weight, cat or dog (We desperately need * dry and canned kitten food), nursing kitten bottles catnip mice (always a big hit!!) pet wipes, ear wipes dog toys and treats, including chew bones, Snausages, and Beggin' Strips, kongs.
