Pet of the Week: Chili (formerly known as Adahay) is an adolescent German Shepherd mix that was rescued from a high-kill shelter. Chili is a sweet and affectionate dog towards his people or anyone else he meets close up. He is housetrained, knows not to get onto furniture, and does not damage things inside. He loves walks outside and would like an active lifestyle. He is fearful, which causes him to be reactive towards other people and dogs. He will need to be the only dog, and he will require someone who is willing to put in time to train him to overcome his fear. Chili is in foster care. Call his foster family to meet him: 662-7882.

Juan—A big tomcat who was trapped a few weeks ago. He’s still adjusting to life at the shelter, but two very dedicated Friends of the Shelter volunteers have been working with Juan to help him relax. He’s finally learning that people can be nice and gentle, particularly when they have treats! Check back in a few weeks for more information about Juan!
