Handsome Tucker seeks a home


Hi Winston:

My name is Tucker! The shelter staff calls me “Tucker Tu.” I am a handsome brindle colored male at 3½ year of age. I am very loving and thrive at being the center of attention. I do get along well with other dogs.

I am at my happiest when I am surrounded by people. I am adventurous, love giving doggie kisses and would enjoy going for long hikes, walks and runs.

One of my favorite things to do is being taken for a walk on the shelter trails with my leash. I am very sociable and enjoy learning new commands. Please Winston, tell your readers to stop in and meet me, I would very happy!

Thank you! Love, Tucker

Hi Tucker!

Even from looking at your photo, it seems you are bursting with energy! Readers — do you have room in your home, heart and yard for this bundle of love?

Stop in and see him for yourself and find out if there is that ‘special connection’ between you. You will be so happy you did, and so will Tucker.

Good luck, my friend! Sincerely, Winston

Cat’s Pride
Litter program

We participate with Cat’s Pride Litter for Good Program — we’ve received 4,000 pounds of cat litter due to nominations from the community.

This is an ongoing promotion. The more nominations, the more litter we receive.

Litter as you can imagine, is a great expense for us, so this would be a wonderful savings for our shelter. 

The public is invited to participate as follows: 

1. Go to catspride.com and sign up for the free Cat’s Pride Club 

2. Click on the “Nominate” button to help us receive litter. 

3. Enter bonus code: 4GOOD and you will double your shelter nomination. 

4. Buy a green jug of Cat’s Pride Fresh and Light – every time you do, another pound of litter is added to the total amount donated
