Pet of the Week
I’ve just been skittering, so now I’ve got to rest ‘cause skittering tires you out! We kittens are pretty busy here at Dogwood, but I can teach you to skitter if you’d like. Actually, it’s kind of like frolicking, but faster! You just take a flying leap, then run fast as the wind dodging all over the room. Next, when you’re tuckered out, you look for someone with a soft, warm lap to snuggle up in. ‘course, it’s really fun if you have more than one kitten skittering about. We have lots of kittens at Dogwood. Why not stop by and ask for Alyx – because that’s ME!
Pets from Previous Weeks
I’ve been waiting patiently for my forever family and home! I wait every day, hoping that the next family is going to be for me! I just KNOW they’re out there somewhere and they will love me a LOT! I’m two years old, have a lot of energy, love to play ball and love the outdoors! Doesn’t a day at the park together with a picnic lunch and a snooze under a shade tree sound great?! Maybe we could play ball before the snooze? It’s easy! You throw and I’ll catch! Just come and ask for Zena so we can get to know each other! Okay?
What’s better than a cute, furry kitten? Why, three furry kittens, of course! It’s spring and they’re showing up like wildflowers!! These babies have been lovingly fostered and are looking for forever homes! So, if you ‘re thinking of adding an easy-care pet to your family who will share lots of love, fun (and probably a little mischief as well), come on in an meet Buzz, Patton and Halo! You’ll be glad you did!
“I believe I can fly! I believe I can touch the sky!” Well, if you had big, beautiful ears just like mine, you would believe it too! Bet I could flap ‘em and go anywhere I want to go! Know where I’d go? Why, to my forever home, of course! And, in addition to my great silky ears, I’m housebroken, love kids and will be happy to show you how well I can obey commands! Maybe you could come to see me. I promise not to fly away!
Just ponderin’ how lucky I am surrounded today by blue sky, sunshine, playmates and folks who care for me! Dogwood’s the finest, very best place I know to relax and dream of getting a forever family of my own! Sometimes I dream there’ll be kids to play with, or maybe even another dog or kitty. Know what? Sometimes I dream of a family with all three…..and me! So, if you’re looking for a happy furry family member, maybe you could visit me! Just ask for Winter. I’ll be here ponderin’…or playin’!
Hey folks, I’m Patches!
You may have patches on your elbows and knees, but I have beautiful patches all over me! That’s what make us unique, we don’t look like everyone else. We would look so awesome working together; I bet everyone would do a double take! I love being close and affectionate, and I just bet ya, if I laid my head in your hands it would melt your heart! I’m a gentle girl and love people as well as my furry friends. I can’t wait for a family to take me home so I can be their best friend and companion. I’ll be waiting to compare our patches!
ELVIS IS IN THE HOUSE! Yes, that’s me. I’m Elvis! I was Found as a stray and brought to the shelter for safe keeping. But look out, I am now ready to have some fun! I may not be able to swing my hips like the “other” Elvis, but I will melt your heart with my love and kisses. I am good with all my furry friends but, really would love to have a real family that I can dance with. I love car rides so let’s open the windows, turn up the tunes and let our hair fly in the wind. So, come see me and let’s dance our way OUT OF THE BUILDING!
Yep! I know about Thanksgiving! I’m going to be most thankful for my nice warm bed, good food, pets on my head and ALL the friends I’ve made since coming to Dogwood! I was pretty scared out on my own before coming here! Now I feel safe and happy! ‘course I’m wishin’ for a forever home of my own. You see, I’ve got lots of love to share and I’d love to share it with you! Maybe you could come and visit me when you get a chance! Just ask for Micah! That’s me!
Hi everybody! My name’s Casey and I’m as classy and well-mannered as they come! Although I’m not old, I am on the mature side! That just means I have years of experience in love and, really, that’s all that matters! Don’t worry about the numbers! The fact of the matter is, I’m the best girl, and I only need seconds to prove it to you.
Like to sleep late, chew on a good beef jerky, take long strolls in the sun? So do I!
Hi, I’m Zeke. I need to be adopted because my owner moved to a place where I couldn’t go. There are lots of dogs at the shelter, but here’s why you should pick me:
- I got training at Puppies for Parole so I know sit, stay and lay down.
- I’m super friendly and eager to please.
- Obviously, I’m a looker!
If you’ve got a comfy bed and a warm heart, come see me at Dogwood and let’s talk about our future.
Hi! I’m Pogo! And boy could I give you an earful of how starvin’ I was when I first came here! My sisters and I were dumped on a farm when we were just little babies, skin ‘n’ bones and hungry for affection. You remember Delta and Birdie? They’re my sisters. They’ve found their furever families, but I’m still lookin’ for mine. I jus’ know there’s someone who will see my sweet face and impressive ears and know that I am the right boy for them. I’m 6 months old and jus’ waitin’ on a family all my own to love. Stop in and meet me sometime!
There is an Angel among us. That’s me! I’m waiting to find a loving family with hearts ready to be touched by an Angel! I’m an energetic pup hoping for a home with room to run!. I love car rides and hope my new family will take me to the park where I can run and play with other furry friends. At six and one-half months, I already know basic commands but I’m hoping my best “trick” ever will be melting your heart!! So, grab the family and come meet me and my other fur-buddies. You’re guaranteed to leave with lots of doggy smooches…and maybe me, too!
“Hiccup’s” my name and playing’s my game! My owners did the right thing by bringing me to Dogwood when they realized they could no longer care for me. Here, I have lots of furry friends to play with but, what I want more than anything, is to have a home of my own. I’m an eight month old pointer/rat terrier mix, full of fun and lots of energy! I hope my new home has lots of toys and someone to play fetch with, cuz I love to play! Did I mention, I’m also potty trained? I’m very affectionate and will do the couch and popcorn thing! Please come visit me and my friends at the shelter!
Hi, my name is Benji. I am 12 years old and ready for a new home with a family ready for an old soul with some spunk left in him. My owner was unable to keep me, so they brought me to Dogwood where I met some forever friends. But, I would love to find a home where I could snuggle with someone on the couch. I am a pretty laid-back guy, but that’s a good thing. I will lie in your lap and watch the football game with you and, if you have cats, that’s alright with me ‘cause I like cats too.
Handsome, that’s me! I`m Gonzo and I will be 2 years in June. I would love to have my birthday party with my new adopted family! A nice person found me running along the highway and graciously brought me to the shelter to find a new family to adopt me. I’m a proud graduate of Puppies for Parole, and with high honors, if I do say so myself! I have lots of energy, very affectionate, love kids and kittens, love playing frisbee and especially car rides. Please stop by and let me show you what great friends we can be! I need to be the master of the house again! Hopefully see you soon!!!
I’m Bonzi! I was an animal control find! They took one look at me and said I was just way too handsome to be homeless! So how about you and I fix that! I’m a pretty calm, low-key kinda guy. I love attention and I’m not afraid to tell you about it! I get along with everyone, but I’m all about that one-on-one time. A good walk is the best way to my heart, just as long as we stop for frequent belly rubs. I’m 3 ½ years old so I still have a lot of lovin’ and cuddlin’ to catch up on with that one special family.
Faster than a speeding bullet, when playing with kitties, More graceful than a prancing fox,
Able to creep stealthily in feline mode.
Look! It’s a cat! It’s a fox! No…it’s Superdog!
Yes, Superdog Easton, who came to Dogwood Animal Shelter and can play fetch by herself.
Disguised as a mild mannered canine, she “fights a never ending battle” for unconditional love, snuggles, and playtime, the sweet, friendly, doggie way.
Heidi-Ho! Energy, energy, energy, that’s me! I’m Heidi and I love to play, run and meet new people! I’m house-broken and just love my treats! No couch potato, I’d rather be in the yard playing fetch, playing with other furry friends or going for a car ride! I’m sweet and have great manners for a three + month old girl! I’ll even sit and wait for my food and shake your hand! Let’s get together and have some fun!
Cherokee’s my name, and freedom’s my game! Give me a front porch to lie on and I’m in heaven. I’d love a farm where I could run and play (supervised of course, ‘ cause I’m still young and need guidance). I love being outside! I guess you could say I’m like a free spirit. I also love cats; we can be best buds! I’ve completed Puppies for Parole with flying colors and have lots of energy to share with my new family! Come meet me and let’s get to know each other! I’ll be waiting!
A little birdie told me that I am one of the sweetest lil’ puppies you’ll ever want to meet! You can’t tell it now, but when I came to Dogwood with my brothers and sisters, we were all the skin ‘n bones kind of starvin’! But that’s just a memory to me now cuz’ I’ve been gettin’ lots of lovin’ and homemade vittles! I’m now ready to go home with a new family all my own. Stop by Dogwood and ask for me…Miss Birdie!!!
RIDE CAPTAIN RIDE!! That’s my dream, one that I want to share with my new family. I am a loving, cheerful guy who would love to share all this love I have stored up inside with a family that loves to play and explore new things. I can be protective of the people I love, as you would be protective of me. I have a good soul inside and out. I went to Puppies for Parole and my trainers helped me trust and grow. I also received the “Canine Good Citizen” certificate, which is one level below being a service dog. How cool is that?! I have lots of patience and I am patiently waiting for you to come visit me so I can show off what a true “CAPTAIN” has to offer. I will be waiting!!!!!
“Just gimme a chance . . .”
“I may look like just another black lab dog, but I am far from it! My name is Twiggy and, just like it sounds, I’m leggy and energetic. I am very fun-loving, love to play ball and can run like the wind! After playing hard, one of my favorite things to do is come home and snuggle! I also happen to be extremely smart! So smart, I was the best in my class while training with Pups for Parole — I graduated with flying colors! I especially liked the agility course. If you want to know a secret, I did the best I could so I could be the very best friend for my forever family. Could that be you?”
“Boogie Scootin’ Boots,” that’s me!! I was bashful before I went to Puppies For Parole and learned a lot. Now, I am happy, social and ready to dance with a new family and a new life. I love to ride in a car and have fun in the snow! I have a great personality and want to share all this love I have with a new family. Please stop by Dogwood and meet me and my buddies. Ask for Boots!
Everything’s coming up “Daisy” – yep that’s me! I’m a very affectionate girl and would love to wake you every morning with lots of smooches! I was found at the Walmart parking lot and brought to Dogwood Animal Shelter. They’re taking care of me until I can find a forever home! I’m friendly with other dogs and like kids too! At only seven months old, I’m very smart, know basic commands and am crate trained as well! Spring is coming and daisies will be popping up everywhere! Even if you have daisies in your yard, I could be your best Daisy ever! So, if you’re lookin’ for a furry, loving friend who likes to snuggle and will make your home complete, I’m your gal! Please stop in and meet me…I will be waiting for you with open paws!
Hi! My name is Crow! I’m a true Dogwood Dog born, and raised. The staff members have been a part of my family ever since I can remember. I was adopted as a puppy, along with my brothers and sisters, and I spent quite a few months in a home environment. But times got busy for my adopted family and they didn’t have the time to give me the attention I deserve. So, here I am again looking for that forever home everyone here keeps talking about. My momma did a good job at raising us pups, though. I turned out just as mellow and mild tempered as she is. I’m a big softy, a really gentle and all around cuddly guy! And, just who doesn’t need that in their life?
All I can say is, you better hurry up and fill out an adoption application on me right quick, before someone else snatches me up. At 10 weeks old I’m a mighty cute girl, but I’m gonna be pure gorgeous when I grow up. How could I be anything but gorgeous when I’m a Great Pyrenees/Australian Shepherd mix? You know what…it gets even better…I’m mellow, sweet, playful, smart, and everything you could want in a best friend. And, I’m not kiddin’. Lookin’ for puppy love? I’m sooo it!!!
They say “blondes have more fun” and I agree! Wanna know why? ‘Cuz I got to go to the Puppies For Parole program where I learned all kinds of commands, tricks and even manners! I’m a very smart 2.5 year girl with a sweet and fun personality. I have lots of love to give to my new family and jus’ lookin’ for someone to love me, too. I get along with most everybody, including other dogs and cats. So, if you are looking for love, smooches and want a friend for life I am your gal.
Purr-plexing! That’s what it is! Why would someone dump me at the shelter when I have so much to offer?! As a matter of fact, after getting some tasty groceries in my tummy, a warm place to sleep, and lots of love, I’m fe-line pretty good about myself these days. Besides being soft and cuddly with gorgeous, gazing eyes, I also double as a neck warmer! What more could you ask for? Come on in and meet me so I can go home for the holidays! Just ask for “Simon”.
Jus’ look at this sweet face! I know…hard to resist, right?!
Hi, I’m Sierra! And yes, I’m as sweet as I look and like to snuggle, too!
I may be 1 ½ years old, but I am still a puppy at heart with a gentle spirit. Walks are my favorite pastime, especially with summer just around the corner!
I need a forever home and you need a new furry best friend, so let’s get together and make your house a home!!
THANK YOU EVERYONE for your donations and well wishes!
We are pleased to announce that since coming to the shelter 6/28/18 after much LOVE AND CARE, I am ready for my forever home.
The surgeon did an excellent job repairing my broken leg and I am happy to say, it was a success! I have mended from being shot by a BB gun and my bite wounds on my neck and leg are all but a bad memory.
I am looking for a great home with no cats and LOTS OF LOVE AND ATTENTION. I admit, I’m easily distracted by small animals such as squirrels and can easily get away from a human, so a fenced yard is a must.
I am a three year old Husky waiting to meet you.
If you’re looking for an activities partner to jog, play fetch, catch frisbees or just hang out with, I just might be the gal for you.
Hi, my name is Gabby and I’m a beautiful black and white, lab mix. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be mixed with, but I think I’m two-parts energy and one-part affection! And, I’m 100% adoptable!
I think I’m adorable but, if you prefer blonds, brunettes or redheads, the shelter has a few of those, too!
My face may be white but my heart is pure gold!
For being a small, ten year old Jack Russell, the good folks at Dogwood Animal Shelter say I pack a lot of love!
I was surrendered to Dogwood Animal Shelter this month because my owners had to move and were unable to take me with them.
I get along great with other dogs and cats but I think I would enjoy being the only fur-baby in the house, just because I deserve to have all your attention!
I’m pretty laid back and easy-going and would enjoy just hanging out with a special person of my own.
I’d love to meet you, so come on in to the shelter and ask for BROWNIE!
And the A-CAT-EMY Award goes to . . . .
If Autumn is your favorite time of the year, then Cali may just be the purr-fect cat choice for you!
She sports a colorful and very soft coat of all the fall colors!
Cali is a five month old female kitten who’s as sweet as Pumpkin Pie!
If you would like to meet Cali or any of her furry friends, please stop in at the shelter – she’ll be waiting for your visit!
With death only a whisper away, I was rescued. I was found under a porch, not even 3 weeks old, where my mama had left me. Jan bottle fed me and gave me a new mama to teach me all the kitty things I needed to know. And, ohhh, how they both loved on me! Now, fat and sassy, I get a wish, the same wish we all have at Dogwood…someone of our own to love. Whispurr…it’s my name…and how far away you and I are from our happily ever after.
Classy. Elegant. Versatile. And always in fashion — that’s me, RAYNE!
I may only be 4 months old but I already have a “black belt” in cuddling. Go ahead—look deep into my eyezzz and tell me you’ll love me furr-ever! I was found as a stray on a rainy day in Spring so I think my name fits me purrrrfectly! You can meet me and my other feline friends at Dogwood Animal Shelter—just stop in and ask for me, RAYNE!
With APPROVED Application, ALL cat and Kittens are now $10.
SO MANY THINGS TO LOVE!
I love chasing the flutterbys and playing in the sweet grass with my sisters! Don’t know what a couch is, but from what I hear I’ll love snuggling on one with my nice, warm human someday too! I’m Pansy. My sisters and I were born here at Dogwood. We’re real anxious to find out what a loving fur-ever home is like! Do you have one for us?
“Can I come home with you?” I confess, I am an absolute lovebug and an aspiring couch potato! And if my big, beautiful puppy dog eyes don’t get to ya, maybe my sweet, “chill” personality will! I’m a delightful mixture of boxer and pointer and will absolutely melt your heart! My sisters and I were brought to the animal shelter by our humans as part of an unwanted litter when we were just babies. I’m almost 5 months old now and looking for a fur-ever companion to call my own. I know how to snuggle, give kisses, and love to play with toys. I promise to try to be a good girl for you. Won’t you please take me home?
May the force be with you!
That’s what I’m wishin’! What I’m also wishin’ for is a loving fur-ever home! Name’s Skywalker! Yep! That’s me! I walk a little funny ‘cause I got hurt a couple years back but I’m good to go! I get along just fine! Why don’t you come and visit me when you get the chance? I’m here with LOTS of other kitties needing homes! Maybe you’ll have a little room in your home for one of us! – I’m wishin”!
I’m lookin’ mighty perty now, but you oughter have seen me a few weeks back. Starvin’, that’s what I was…jes skin ‘n bones, truly. My brothers and sisters were right bad, too. But, we got fattened up quicker ‘n you can say, “Fetch me another bowl of grub.” Got us some lovin’…attention…and homemade vittles at Dogwood…the doggone most purrrfect place to saddle up with a new best friend. Yup! Like me…Miss Delta!!!
My name is Mist.
I like to be kissed
Right on my pink little nose!
I’m waiting at Dogwood for a happy new home,
For which I’ll be grateful, whiskers to toes!
Ya gonna kiss me? I sure do love kisses! Belly rubs and ear scratches are pretty great too! I was brought to Dogwood with my babies and took great care of them! Now they’re big enough to be on their own and I’ve got a whole bunch of love left to share with you! I’m ready for a forever family to love! Please come visit! Just ask for Blackie! I’ll be here….hoping!
You gonna throw a ball? Bet I can catch it! Or, maybe we could go for a walk! I’m good on a leash and like to sniff grass and rocks and stuff! Being a friendly sort of girl, I love to meet people too! You see, I’m a forever kind of dog, looking for a forever kind of home! If you give me a chance, I’d be a really good friend! Promise! Come see me please! Just ask for Pippa!
Once upon a time, I had a great dad and we were really enjoying life together. My world crashed when he was deployed overseas. I came back to Dogwood where the living is easy and the people are nice. I’m starting to get a little grey now, but I’ll never stop dreaming and hoping. I’m very loyal and obedient. I love kids, car rides, soft beds and tummy rubs. I hope to meet you soon!
Amazing Grace…How Sweet I AM!!
Some very nice people found me in the state park on July 23, 2018 and brought me to Dogwood Animal Shelter where they knew I would be taken care of. At 19 months old, I’m a great age for an active family who would like to take me on walks. I’m a German/Australian Shepard Mix — I think that’s why I’m so smart! I may be a little shy at first, but warm up quickly! I love belly rubs, attention and going on walks. And I’m here at the shelter waiting to meet you! Just ask for GRACE!
I’m glad they told me heaven’s a nice place ‘cause that’s where my owner went. The Dogwood people are taking care of me until I find a new forever home. I’m used to being a good Buddy! I already have lots of friends here, but I want my very own person to love. Could it be YOU? Doesn’t matter what size your lap is – I’ll make myself fit!
I hope to meet you soon!
Miracles do happen! I was found in the woods in Tuscumbia, Mo in December 2017. I’m a little terrier mix with short hair, so I was literally frozen when I came to the shelter – and very hungry too!
Dogwood’s staff and volunteers took excellent care of me during my lengthy recovery. Then the most wonderful person fostered me! And now I’m back – happy, healthy and waiting patiently for my fur-ever home!
My name is Dolly and I get along great with all the other dogs here. I’m always excited to meet new visitors and will do a spin or two for you! I’m a very sweet girl!
I’m a little charmer and not afraid to show you!
Not only am I a very smart girl but I’m also mature for my age! I like to keep my kennel clean and already know how to sit at 8 months old!
My favorite thing to do is to go outside and play with the other dogs – I just love that part of the day! What I want more than anything is to have a loving family to call my own. An active family who will play fetch with me and take me on walks would be great but I think I’m perfect for most any family! Stop by and visit me and my MANY puppy and dog friends; ask for SIERRA! That’s me!
Laurel & Hardy
Laurel and I are homeless, “Another fine mess we got ourselves into”. We’re pretty much like almost all our friends here…strays, good dogs, love car rides, and know some commands like “sit”. The only thing that sets us apart from this enormous pack is that we’re playful 9 month old pups, the perfect age to begin training. And we LOVE to have fun and make people laugh!
Laurel and Hardy
Do you know what you were doing 1 year, 3 months, and 29 days ago? I do! It was the day I came to Dogwood!. And, in those 484 days I have learned some mighty important things:
Life isn’t fair. Move on. – My people kind of deserted me, but I have to believe I will be loved again.
Please others, but most importantly, be pleased with yourself. – I’m proud of mastering the housetraining thing. I mean, I’m mostly beagle…smart…and ready for everything anyone can teach me.
Don’t be just another pretty face in the pack. Be real and others will like you. – Worked for me! I’m not the gorgeous, glitzy, girly type, but other dogs and kids think I’m awesome.
Patient and hopeful,
Presley, the Incredible Beagle Mix
My siblings and I were found in a brush pile, clinging to each other and to life. People threatened to shoot us, but a nice neighbor brought us to Dogwood, where we would be cared for and safe. My sibs have been adopted, but no one has picked me, maybe because I’m so shy. I make up for shyness by how smart I am; I graduated with honors from the Pups for Parole Program! Come meet me and fall in love. Ask for Deirdre, the 1 year, 8 month old lovable, belly rubbing Australian cattle dog and blue healer mix gal. I’m waiting patiently for you!!!
