Here are the original stories and adoption
information about those dogs who came to us as a result of abuse or
abandonment, and have been placed in permanent homes during 2015.

Adopted *** Australian Shepherds (Mike and Maggie) ** Adopted
I really had slim hopes of the Aussies
getting adopted at all - much less together. Not everyone wants to deal with a deaf
dog, and also take on two dogs who have had little or no training. But there are still people in our world
who do not expect perfection, and they found us! Their new names are Mike and Maggie and I
must admit, the family has shown great patience. They remove silverware
from the dishwasher and deposit it in the yard, eat furniture and chase
their cats. But do you know what they said, "We love them!!"
two blue merle Australian Shepherds are not only beautiful, but gentle and
timid. The male has the longer hair
and he is deaf, but can see. The
female can see and hear, which is not always the case
with blue eyed, white dogs.
They are best buddies, but would be fine if separated, as long as
they each had another dog to play with.
They need work!! They are
coming along slowly on a leash, but will take a patient and experienced
owner to bring them completely around to the dogs they need to be! They weigh about 50 lbs
each and are spayed and neutered.
Adopted *** Sadie ** Adopted
Sadie came here one day and was gone the
next! Once she hit Facebook, we
could not keep up with the apps on her.
I cannot imagine anyone giving up this precious Yorkie, but they did,
and now she is happy with her new family who will keep her forever!
Adopted *** Mia (now known as Tipsy) ** Adopted
Mia was the dog whose leg was caught in a trap
and had to be amputated. She recovered really well and we wondered if she
would be hard to adopt? However, the
good news is we had lots of great applications on her and she went off with
a family of her very own. Her name
is now Tipsy, and here is a painting her owner did of her...isn't it adorable???
Adopted *** Willow ** Adopted
Willow is a gorgeous Collie, probably a
miniature, and has gone off with her new owner! She had a funny bark and we were told the
owners had her vocal chords cut since she was a show dog and they wanted no
loud barking. Her new owner does not
care if she has a croaky bark or not, he loves her just the way she is!!!
Adopted *** River ** Adopted
found running down a road in the city and picked up by a passing car. The
couple who found her had recently adopted a dog from us, so they were full.
They kept her for a week, advertised everywhere, called the local shelter
and nothing happened. So off she
went to a SCARS foster who has two dogs and two cats. The good news is she is fine with cats
and after clearing up a urinary infection, she seems to be housebroken. A
great couple from Ks. City came to meet her and she is now safely tucked
into her new home!!!
River is a 6 month old, female black Lab. She is spayed and seems to
be housebroken. River was seen
running across a highway and dodging traffic with no collar or tags. A
passerby managed to get her in the car, and took her home. Weeks of searching for her owner were in
vain and the local humane society had no report. Finally they decided they could not keep
her, and gave her to us. She is very
active but settles down nicely inside.
She is fine with cats and likes all dogs so all in all, this is a
Adopted *** Shiloh ** Adopted
has finally landed in her “forever home” after a few mistrials! She came to us because the owners had no
time for her and we probably had the highest number of adoption
applications on her in years. One
family was determined to adopt her and off she went, with lots of good
advice for a successful adoption. In
one month she was back. She dug
holes in their yard...good grief, so we tried again and screened a lot of
homes. Now she seems to be working
out just great and thank you to the two girls who have made her fit into
their home...maybe they don' t care if she digs holes or not!!!
Shiloh is a seven month old, female St Bernard/Shepherd
mix. She is spayed and close to
being housebroken. Shiloh is timid
but sweet and loving. She is fine with cats and other dogs, and is well
behaved in the house. Good guess for
her ultimate weight is probably 60 lbs?? Her coat
is so fluffy it looks like Angora.
She is a real cutie pie.
