Boris & Natasha
Boris and Natasha were at the shelter during the Grand Opening on November 6, 2001. They were about 6 weeks old. Natasha weighed 12 ounces, and was the vocal one. She cried and cried until someone came along and held her. Then she sat quietly and purred. They were adopted the following morning.
Jozee, a Black Lab mix, was adopted from the Meade County Shelter on July 13, 2004 by Walt and Doris Reesor. She is now a bundle of energy and has learned to sit and stay (most the time). She has a companion named Cane, a Shiba Izu adopted from a Fort Knox soldier who could no longer keep him.
Jozee is no longer the frightened little girl she was when brought home but is now a happy-go-lucky, loving little lady. Jozee wants you to know that there are more great companions like her available at the Shelter!
Penny is a Whippet cross from the Meade County Animal Shelter. Her new owner had lost her Lab of 14 years and decided she wanted a lap dog.
One Thursday night when a call went out from PINS members that there were a lot of animals at the shelter in need of homes that night, she went. At the shelter, Penny was handed to her. Penny was just like a baby! She locked her arms around her neck and wouldn't let go. So her new owner took her home and is extremely glad that she did.
Penny doesn't fetch balls or anything like that, instead, she's a lover. Her favorite thing is to sit in a lap and snuggle. She loves to go outside and run, but in the house she is a calm, quiet lap dog that barely barks. She is one of the sweetest dogs that her new owner ever met, much less owned.
Penny greets her owner at the door after a long day at work and can't wait until she sits down to jump in her lap, cock her head, lift a paw and fall gently against a shoulder. Penny is loved dearly. It would have been a real loss to this world if she had not found a home. There are some very sweet dogs that can be found at the shelter. Her owner knows -- she decided to name her after the PINS group that helped her find this wonderful companion.
