Featured Critters  
Featured Critter: MAMAMIA
Breed: Cat   -  Gender: Female  -  Age: 3 yrs. 1 mo. (est)
MAMAMIA Mamamia is a beautiful, soft grey mommy cat, who arrived with 6 kittens. She was left behind when her "owners" moved away, leaving her and her kittens to fend for themselves... She has tested positive for FIV--the feline version of HIV. FIV is spread only feline to feline, and only through sex (rare) or deep puncture wounds/blood to saliva contact. For this reason she should be an indoor only cat. If there is a proper feline social structure, of easy going cats, FIV positive cats can co-exist with other cats. Unfortunately however THIS girl should be an only cat, as she does not enjoy their company.

We are hoping that someone with no other cats will fall in love with her and want to adopt her. Or even foster her, while we look for a home.

Featured Critter: GUMBO
Breed: Australian Cattle Dog - Shepherd Mix  -  Gender: Male  -  Age: 5 yrs. 1 mo. (est)
GUMBO 2/18/15 Current foster update: "Gumbo is a fun and loving dog. He has amazing skills with other dogs, big and small, is very friendly and playful. He would do well with another dog in his new home (currently in my foster care with another dog - female - ).

Gumbo is friendly with people as well, and does great with smaller children. He sometimes shies away from male teenagers and men, when they approach him too suddenly and quickly, but if he is allowed to approach or stay away, and by giving treats, he warms up quickly.

He is a fast learner and very eager to train! He is already great at 'sit' and 'down', his recall is very good, he walks nicely on leash and he is learning some new tricks which he loves! He is house trained but when visiting friends I have to show him where to eliminate. No accidents in his foster home.

Gumbo is totally fine being left alone for several hours, he allows handling and does not guard items or food from people or other dogs.

Gumbo is very affectionate and bonds quickly. He is active, loves his long walks and romps everyday, but will stretch out by your feet and relax when home. He cannot get enough cuddles and massages.

Unfortunately, Gumbo chases cats and will pursue. He needs to stay on leash when cats could be around. His new owner should prevent any opportunity for him to chase a cat. As part herding dog, he generally tends to chase after fast and sudden movements, specifically scooters, bikes, skateboards.... But Gumbo is already learning to check in with me when he is around triggers. It's easy to anticipate what triggers him, and by giving him a firm 'No' in the right moment, and offering him an alternative behavior, he chooses not to react on these triggers most of the time. Like I said, he is a smart boy :)

Gumbo is a great dog who deserves a loving forever home. He is a great companion and his goofiness and lust for life will make you laugh and fall in love with him! If I decided to have a second dog it would definitely be Gumbo!"

*Foster Update* 2/4/15 "Gumbo is doing great, he is a wonderful dog. He is attentive, smart, eager to learn. So far I haven't had any problems with him. He is good with other dogs, with strangers (men and women) and kids (I had my friend's little daughter here). He loves to chase squirrels and cats though and skate boarders :( Something his new home needs to work on."

UPDATE: "He's the most affectionate dog I've ever had. Very sweet. He's really looking for a family, and bonds easily. He's good on the leash, but will startle once in awhile if a cyclist or runner is on the same trail. He's good at home when we're gone, but is very people-oriented, so I hope he can go to a home where there are people home a lot. He's also good with kids and other dogs.

If we were going to get a dog, we would without a doubt keep sweet, fun Gumbo."

Current foster notes: "I wanted to give you an update on Gumbo. He's a dog that is happy to be inside all the
