Ms. Eve Martin knew she was having a heart attack. But instead of calling 9-1-1, she called Animal Services. Although concerned about her health, she was more concerned about Asparagus, her cat.

Tigger, a cat

“Amtrak” rolled into the shelter on October 14, 2010 without identification or a microchip. Shortly after coming in, a woman mistakenly identified him as her missing cat, but at the last minute realized he wasn’t her cat after all. So it was back to the station for poor Amtrak.

Black dog with e-collar

A lot of interest was recently generated by Freedom, the “Freeway Dog”. As you may recall, she was picked up on Hwy 205 a few weeks ago. Freedom came into the shelter frightened and wary. She was injured and we believe she was struck by a car. As a result, she had to undergo surgery to her hind leg.
