Meet Forrest and Miss Billie.

Forrest is an 11-year-old, 28-pound Spaniel mix who lived on the street with a homeless woman until she became ill. She went to the hospital, and he went to the shelter.

He is a very loyal, loving and intelligent dog who is great with children and other dogs. He shows little or no interest in cats, but he likes to be a human’s shadow and will follow you everywhere. He also likes to snuggle on the sofa and in bed.

Forrest loves to go for walks, and he walks great on a leash. He does not react to other dogs or people.

Since he entered foster care, Forrest has had a perineal hernia repair, a dental, an ear flush, a mass removed from his back and one removed from his hind leg. The last turned out to be low-grade sarcoma, which required a second surgery. He is on a kidney diet in order to keep his kidneys functioning.

He has lived through years of neglect, but he is being cleaned up and is on his way to recovery.

Miss Billie is a young cat born around October 2017 and is both gentle in someone’s lap and also playful and curious. She loves to play and jump with feathers and chase mouse toys, and she is very intelligent.

Miss Billie was found as a stray, but she was gentle enough that she accepted getting a bath by the person who found her. She was originally going to be a TNR, but was so tame that she wasn’t released back onto the streets. She gets along well with children, and even the techs at the vet clinic comment about her sweetness.

This kitty has had initial vaccinations, de-worming, flea preventative, tested negative for FeLV/FIV, and has been micro-chipped and altered or will be to be ready for adoption then.
