Watch Us Grow

If you love to "ohh and aww" over puppies and kittens this is the place for you! Each week the Center staff will add new photos and updates on a litter of puppies or kittens that are currently in foster care so you can “Watch Us Grow”.

Fawn Update

New little lives have arrived! Fawn has given birth to four beautiful babies: two boys and two girls. Their names are Gosling, Tadpole, Filly, and Cria. Mama Fawn is resting and taking excellent care of her pups!

Born in a woodpile, Fawn began life on her own and before her first birthday, she became pregnant. A Good Samaritan found her and brought her to the Pet Adoption Center where she now resides in our Tiny Paws Nursery. We'll care for Fawn and help her through the birthing process.

Pups have all found good homes and are doing wonderfully! Zeke came in for a visit today and her new mom and dad say she's already potty trained and loves to go on hikes. Stay tuned for the next Watch Us Grow Litter.

The puppies are horrified!!!

In these warm months, it is important to guard pets against fleas and ticks. Our Watch Us Grow litter got to experience bath time this week to ward off any varmints they may be causing them to itch and scratch. Just like human babies, puppies have sensitive skin, so they were bathed using dish soap instead of dog shampoo.

Zuko and Nyla share a hug!

Although it's pretty clear that Nyla loves her little brother, their foster mom wants to make sure the little one isn't being pushed aside by his larger siblings during mealtimes... she is supplementing Zuko's diet with formula from a bottle, and keeping tabs on everybody's weight.
