"HAPPY Adoption UPDATE! "TWIZZLER"

"Happy Adoption" Update: Mar 1, 2019
"Thank you all SO VERY MUCH for introducing us to this SWEET, LOVING creature. No lap stays uncovered, no hands left idle. This sweet little Lady is an endless fountain of affection, love, and kisses. She spreads the love around by spending time sleeping next to both of our faces every night!

She has already checked in with her Vet who thinks she might be a Chihuahua/Beagle mix, between 15-19 months old. She has been outfitted with engraved ID and Microchip tags. We are doing are best to make sure you will not find her wandering again!

This energetic little girl walks on her rear legs, watches other dogs on TV, and is just so much fun to watch. She is also hard to get pictures of because she always follows me around. I will send more pictures as I can take them."

My name is Skittles and I am really happiest being where my people are. I would love nothing more than the curl up next to you or trot along with you on walks. If you are seeking a relaxed and easy-going friend to keep you company through your life, then I am the dog for you! Through thick and thin, I will be by your side.

"COCO" poodlemix - Happy Adoption Update!


Feb 22, 2019  Happy Adoption Update Coco


"When I visited your shelter in January, I was in mourning. I’d lost my two sweet 17-year-old pups the month before, and couldn’t imagine getting another dog just then. And then – I saw Coco. He was a wild-haired little man, all chocolate-brown crazy curls! We stared at each other. And it dawned on me that maybe I needed someone as much as they might need me. Coco came home with me that day.
He has been a joy! Your site said he was a “loving” little guy, and he surely is. We took our first excursion to the beach last week. Now, when you get “a pup with a past,” as I call my shelter dog, you don’t know their history. So I’ll never know if this was Coco’s first beach trip, but he ran with such glee and enthusiasm! How can you not love this?? THIS is why we love dogs – they make every little adventure SO much better. The picture I’ve included is “my little man” (as I call him) at a site overlooking the ocean.
I want to thank all the people who helped me become Coco’s new mom. I wish I’d paid more attention to names back then – so many people were kind to me that day! Val, behind the service desk was caring and understanding. (I’d approached him, in tears, asking if I could just walk a dog). Lia was my “counselor” who helped with the adoption, and was wonderful and great fun! Zoe told me she had also “fallen in love with Coco,” and gave me tidbits regarding how he was found. (SO appreciated!)
MCAS has an extraordinary group of people working there! I thank you for all you do. And for this wonderful, zany, happy guy you’ve brought into my life! (I wish we could download MORE pictures!)"

# 182914
I am Donovan, a fun loving and energetic Pointer/Doberman mix. Dogs like me love to get out and play but are not always sure what to do with our mouths. I can tend to get so excited I jump for the first thing I see, and the game is on! My ideal family will be active, patient and use positive training methods to help me become a more refined pup. I think working with a trainer would be a fun way for us to bond and learn together. I am eager to learn and can't wait to show you how smart I am! If you have kids in the home, they will need to be over the age of 15 years due to my jumpy/mouthy behaviors

Hi there, I'm Carmelo an 8 year old Red Heeler dude. Here is what the shelter knows about me!
-I came into the shelter as an owner surrender, and I am pretty fearful here, but sweet!
- My owners said that I was great with respectful kids, but any new kids should come and meet me
- I am potty trained, and know some basic commands like sit and come.
- I have lived with other dogs in the past, but it was a very slow introduction over many years. I also had a few doggy friends that I made slowly over the years as well, but other animals I don't know sort of scare me. I would love to be the only animal in the home.
