Miss Carol was fostered in a wonderful home from November until April. In that period of time she warmed up very much to her foster caretakers and became a wonderful source of entertainment and endless snuggles and laughs. Her foster family went out of their way to partner with Dr. Shanti Jha at the Veterinary Specialist Center in Lynwood, WA. During this time Dr. Jha worked diligently with her fosters to help find a solution that would allow Bonnie to be more ambulatory. They teamed up with a company based out of Colorado, OrthoPets, to design prosthetics that help Bonnie become more comfortable and mobile!
Carol is a HUGE inspiration, reminding us that simple things can sometimes be a struggle and through adversity we reap the benefits of seeing her as a more active and happy cat! She was quite scared and timid when she joined her new foster, but proved herself to be one of the best lap cat companion you could ever ask for, eagerly waiting for her forever home!

When Doodle first arrived he spent much of his time cowering in corners while other dogs engaged in joyful play around him. If another dog bumped into him, he would let out the most pitiful and fearful yelp. Dogs were not the only source of Doodles anxiety, humans also pose a threat in his mind. Before he is able to befriend a person he must make sure that he will be treated with the gentlest of cares. once he trusts someone though Doodle transforms into a Jubilant cuddle-bug. Timidness was not the only thing holding Doodle back, he experiences pain due to his Luxating Patella (floating knee-caps). Movements and physical contact that may not bother another dog have an increased chance of actually causing pain for Doodle.
Ever since doodle has begun pain medication, instead of experiencing pain when being pet, he can finally enjoy the delight in all it's glory. Instead of finding a calm corner in our doggy playroom he now has doggy playmates that he engages in chases and play fights. It's beautiful to watch Doodle transform in to a fun loving and happy dog. Doodle still has limitations and fears to overcome, but now instead of slinking off to be alone Doodle bounds towards his people and doggy friends with eager merriment. Doodle is neutered, fully vetted, micro-chipped, and available for adoption
Jaunty & jubilant Jules is a unique, loveable, and goofy dog. He has a great love for many things including frolicking, leaping about, walks, and cuddles. Jules is a very playful dog who likes to tumble about with his doggy playmates. Jules lives most of his life with a joie-de-vivre attiude, but despite his normal fun loving personality his fear and anxiety sometimes gets the best of him which causes him to behave in an aggressive manner.
Jules doesn't always trust in new people he meets, his past experiences have taught him strangers can be dangerous, so instead of behaving like his usual bubbly self - he acts out with fear aggression. This usually manifests itself in the form of barking but can escalate to nipping and biting. Jules needs a patient and loving home that can work with him on his fear aggression issues while still reveling in the joie-de-jules.
Jules is neutered, fully vetted, micro-chipped, and available for adoption

Blitz isn't so sweet with other dogs though, he has aggression that means he will have to be in a home without other pets. While he is fine with walking, face to face confrontations can leave him feeling very aggressive.
Blitz will need a stern and consistent approach to structure and reprimands or he will take advantage. He loves playing fetch, and will usually bring back whatever is thrown but he is a bit goofy and silly sometimes, wanting you to come to him. Although Blitz is an adventurous and loving buddy, eager to please and do right, he is a bigger dog and while he is very cuddly there's always a certain amount of respect that needs to be shown.

This little guy is Blue. He was rescued and then returned to the Ramona shelter in California. The original rescue said he is very aggressive and almost mauled a puppy, but we have yet to see signs of his aggression while he has been with Magda in California. He's been with smaller dogs and a cocker who is much bigger than him. While Blue does not like being in the middle of a group of dogs he does not attack them or become aggressive. So far, the most evident trait that Blue needs to work on is some control over his puppy bites or mouthing.
Blue loves a good play session, and while he can get a bit routy while playing and growls a lot, we haven't witnessed any actual aggressive or dominance traits and so it's difficult to imagine him out of control or attacking another dog. Blue goes straight to his crate at night He has no issues sleeping and is pretty content in his kennel. Overall he is a happy guy with lots of energy. He may not be good for young children and first time dog owners since he will need help understanding he cannot mouth or nip playfully. With a bit of patience and work it will become much more manageable but still needs to be kept in mind. Blue doesn't always play well with kitties, so it may serve him better to be in a home without them as he can be a bit too playful. Blue is neutered, fully vetted, micro-chipped, and available for adoption
Duchess may very well be the most perfect cat on the planet when it comes to temperament and making friends. She gets along with dogs and cats equally and is very very sweet to us humans. She does how have a few special needs that seem to make her very high maintenance.
Duchess has Feline Herpes and happens to have very small nose and sinus system. It has been suggested (by veterinary specialist) that she get a "nose job" to open her nostrils and passage way, but we are trying to find ways around that so she may live a normal healthy life as she was born. As a result, she needs her eyes and nose cleaned at least twice a day. She also uses pellets instead of regular litter as the dust caused by finer litter can become an issue to her quite quickly. Duchess is looking for her forever home and a kind and gentle adopter who will help keep her problematic areas clean so she can breath easily.
She also takes a few allergy medications as well to help keep her healthy and happy.
