Tucker is a handsome one-year-old German Shepherd/mix. He is a bit shy but warms up quickly with encouragement. Tucker loves to walk and enjoys his outings on a leash. His dream is to find a loving family who will appreciate his sweetness. Come out and make his dream come true.
Watson here, and I’ll bet that headline caught your eye. Yes, adoptions of dogs and cats will be free on this Friday, June 11 and Saturday, June 12. CAPS is extending their hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days. Because of COVID, we are suggesting that you make an appointment to avoid waiting. Call 775-423-7500 for details.
Maddie’s Pet Project sponsors this event and for each animal adopted, our shelter will receive $200. It is a win-win proposition for everyone. If you have been thinking about getting a BFF (best furry friend), now is the time. Normally it costs $80 for dogs and $50 for cats.
All CAPS guests have already been spayed/neutered, have current shots, and are healthy. We have adorable dogs and fabulous cats. I am a graduate of CAPS, and I am sure it would mean the world to all the animals to find a forever loving home.
If you decide to adopt a BBF, please realize that it will take some adjustment. When I first came home, I was frightened. Dad gave me a bath, and I spent the day lying on a little rug. I had to learn how to tell my folks I needed to go outside for the bathroom, because at CAPS I had my own outdoor loo.
I also had to learn a new daily routine. Every morning I eat breakfast, go for a walk, and tend to business.
Usually, we head to the dog park where I meet friends and catch up on my pee mail. In the afternoon, I nap. I know when it is suppertime, because we always go for a walk before we eat. After supper, dad and I settle on the couch for quality lounge time.
The best advice to folks who adopt a rescue pet is to have a routine to help your BFF adjust to his new life. Most of all, be patient and love your new roommate.
LOOKING FOR A HOME
We have three adorable, energetic boy Border Collie/Heeler/mix puppies that are ready for adoption. Call 775-423-7500 for details.
Policy, however, prohibits adopting out puppies or kittens under the age of six months to a home with children under five years of age. This is to protect both the children and the animal.
