Adoptable Pet of the Week

Abe is a Siberian Husky mix, five years old weighing 65 lbs. He is a high energy, but sweet dog that will be good with kids and most dogs. Abe was recently adopted and enjoyed the home life, but he is back at the shelter. At his new home, there must have been something more interesting on the other side of a fence and he injured his knee during a jump attempt. He is now in line for surgery, but first needs either a new adopter home or a foster family to help with his convalescence after surgery. Will you be that special family for Abe? The bond that a family makes during post-surgery-care with a new dog is well worth the small sacrifice of your time and care.


K- 9 PALS is the volunteer, non-profit organization that promotes adoptions, provides humane care, and acts as advocate for the dogs at the Shelter to eliminate euthanasia so that every adoptable dog will have a chance for a loving forever home.

Dog-viewing hours are Mon.-Fri., 9 a.m.-4:45 p.m.; Sat., 10 a.m.-4 p.m. All K-9 PALS dogs are spayed/neutered and have current vaccinations. All adoptions come with FREE group dog-training sessions at the shelter.

Do you love dogs, but can’t have a pet? Volunteer with K-9 PALS or make a donation to sponsor a dog while it waits for its forever home. Volunteer orientations are held twice a month on Saturdays. For details about volunteering and orientation schedule at or call 681-4369.
