Finding Louie

August 15th, 2022|Categories: Happy Families, Pet Column|

The drama in animal rescue usually comes before the adoption. 

Louie came to us earlier this year. He was shy, having been raised with little human interaction. Our staff and volunteers took it slowly with him. He wasn’t aggressive or dangerous, just nervous and frightened. Slowly, he began to trust and show his gentle, loving nature. 

The Story of Shay Shay…The Eyes Have It

Sometimes you think someone is right for you, but you end up going in a completely different direction. This happens in both romance and pet adoptions.

When Janie and Steve Goldberg of Telluride lost their beloved DeeDee, The One- Eyed Dog, they were devastated. Steve wanted to wait to bring another canine family member into their home, but Janie thought it might help to heal their hearts to adopt another dog sooner rather than later.

Some stories are hard to tell. They need to be told anyway, because they need to be heard. This is one such story. Not all stories have happy endings, but Angel and her devoted team of people are working hard to make this story turn out much better. And, although we are only at the beginning of this story, it has already significantly improved.

Pets Turning Pages

April 8th, 2019|Categories: Happy Families, Pet Column, Pet Column Classics|

I want to be a wellbeing dog. Actually I already am, as I make everyone around me feel good, but I want to apply my power of wellbeing-ness more specifically. So I am applying for a spot in Second Chance Humane Society’s Pets Turning Pages Program. Through this program pets like me are going into the Telluride, Ridgway & Ouray public schools to support kids with reading.
