Pet of the Week – March 1, 2022

Published 5:00 am Monday, February 28, 2022

Our pet of the week is Ollie, a stunning two-year-old mixed breed dog, big and strong. According to his former owner, Ollie is good with other animals, and he will do best in an adult-only home due to his size and strength. This good-looking pup is energetic and athletic; he will benefit from regular exercise and some behavior training. Ollie rides well in the car, and as yet, we haven’t heard him bark – such a good boy! If you are looking for a handsome partner for running or hiking, Ollie is your guy!

Ollie is fixed, vaccinated, microchipped, and ready to go home! If you are interested in adopting Ollie or another pet, please bring your family and dog for a meet and greet Monday – Friday between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Before coming out, give us a call to ensure the pet you’re interested in is still available and complete an online application to save time: If you cannot make it to the shelter during open hours, you can email me at to set an appointment to meet a specific pet.

It’s International Cat Rescue Day March 2, a day to celebrate the cats in our lives. In honor of cats, please join me at Plaid Elephant Books for a special storytime on March 16th at 11 am! We’ll be reading “Six-Dinner Sid” – a delightful picture book about a mischievous cat with six owners. Then we’ll chat about the Humane Society’s Community Cat program. This event is FREE, and the first ten families to reserve their spot by emailing will receive a free copy of the book!
