We might be the luckiest shelter because we have a convergence of two things: great animals and ridiculously talented volunteer photographers. They give us great front shots, like this:
|Eli leads zen meditation class for his stuffies.|
Great views from the top:
|The Potato Brothers, Skilo & Zeus, demonstrate the art of the yin-yang nap.|
And even great upside down shots:
|Do your dance, Sadie. Do your dance. Word up.|
But we have to admit: We love mutt butts and we cannot lie.
Why? Because of this. See this?
|Later days, folks!|
That's the sight of a dog headed to it's new home. Isn't that awesome?
|Hasta la vista! Don't bother leaving a light on for me!|
We could look at these all day.
|Sayonara! Auf Wiedersehen!|
Bye Dixie and Chickadee!
We get pretty attached to the animals here so when long term residents leave, it's kind of a big deal. Like Sadie, our 9 year old pittie who graced a million Facebook posts and blog shots. There were a lot of staff and volunteers clustered around to say goodbye to her butt leaving the building.
|Thanks for the memories, guys. We'll always have the dog park.|
Don't get us wrong, we'll take a good side view, too:
|Drive faster, new mom. We have a lot to do together.|
But there's just something about the last look on the way out to the car:
|Human, please tell me our car is near. It's raining.|
You know what the best of it is? We have a mutt butt for everyone. We have small butts:
|Humans make excellent beds.|
And athletic agility butts:
|Is this color like tennis ball camo or something?|
We even have bald butts:
|Really guys? While I'm in the headcone? Must you?|
But they won't be bald forever.
And all of them would love to walk out the door with you. For more information on who's waiting for a chance to be walked out to your car, check this out.
|Get that camera away from my butt.|
**While a lot of these butts have, like Elvis, left the building, some words on our adoptable models, both front end and back. ***
Eli of the amazing ears is a sweet little guy who loves adventuring. He's available. Check him out here.
The Potato Brothers are a matched set who have great house manners. They need to go home together. More info about them on our adoptable animals page.
Nala, our agility pibble, is a loving girl who enjoys hanging out on top of her crate and posing ridiculously in the pool. Think Esther Williams bathing beauties in a pittie body. More info on her on the adoptable animals page as well.
And finally poor Phoebe, who is actually a happy, friendly dog but whose deadpan expressions have made her the Grumpy Cat of HSSV. She and her adopted sister, one eyed wonder-pooch Luna, are looking for a home together. You must see the cuteness.
