Meet Juno! Juno is an 8 month old pointer/beagle mix that is looking for her forever home. She came to our shelter after being rescued from euthanasia in Tennessee. Even though she may not have had the best live, she is one happy-go-lucky pup! Juno has struggled with an intestinal parasite, coccidia, and a severe urinary tract infection but now has a clean bill of health! As you can imagine, trying to potty train a puppy while dealing with infections wasn’t the easiest. Now that she is doing better, she is in a foster home to help her become fully potty trained.
At the shelter, Juno would scratch at the door or bark to let us know she wanted to go outside. Juno is a playful, but smart puppy. Her favorite outdoor activity is playing fetch with the shelter staff and spending as much time as she can outside. Although, we have to keep an eye on her because she likes to put everything in her mouth. Juno gets along well with just about everything she has been exposed to: kids, cats, dogs, etc. She is always looking to please and knows how to sit on command. Did we mention that this little pup LOVES food?! She is the first one to finish her bowl and is like a vacuum cleaner, cleaning up all of the food that may have dropped on the floor.
Juno is looking for a forever family that understands the needs of a puppy. She will need someone that can help her burn off some of her puppy energy and that provide her with the training needed to be a good girl. We can promise you that she will thank you by giving you lots of cuddles and wet kisses!
If you are interested in meeting Juno, please contact the shelter via phone, email, or Facebook to schedule a meet and greet since she in a foster home and is not currently at the shelter.
Meet Elsa! This beautiful girl was named after the ice queen herself after she was found trying to survive the subzero temperatures this past winter. A kind and caring citizen of Kewanee found her and brought her into her home to warm up. She called the Humane Society because she couldn’t keep her and we sent an employee to pick her up right away. Once she was at the shelter, we realized that this poor girl was underweight and needed some TCL as most stray cats do when they come in. Elsa was so grateful of her warm bed, food and water, and a place to call her own out of the harsh weather outside.
At first, she was very timid but was still accepting of our care. Unfortunately, the vet discovered that the end of her tail had frost bite and it needed to be removed. She also had a bit of frostbite on the tips of her ears but that wasn’t as severe. Since then, she has gotten a bath, a good brushing, and lots of food to help her gain weight.
When she was first moved into our general population cat room, she spent most of her time hiding in the cat tower, not sure of what to think of the other cats. Our staff and volunteers continued to spend time with her and work on socializing her. Since then she has become very comfortable and can be seen roaming around the room or in the window keeping on eye on the staff and volunteers. Elsa is the guard of the door to the cat porch, sitting close by to keep track of which cats come in and out. Elsa is a long haired cat, so she will require regular brushing to keep her fur beautiful. She does well with other cats in the cat room as long as they aren’t too overbearing. Stop by the shelter during our visiting hours each day from 8-11 am and 5-7 pm to fall in love with this sweet girl!
Everyone meet Hugo. This dapper young man came to our shelter after someone found him on the streets of Galva trying to survive. At first, he was so timid and scared that he would swat at you if you tried to reach in his kennel. Upon evaluation, we discovered that he had an eye infection which was causing him to have difficulty seeing. Hugo’s eyes were cleaned multiple times a day and treated with a special ointment. Soon Hugo realized that we are here to help him. When we opened his kennel door, he would walk out on his own and jump up on the counter so we could clean his eyes. He loves to sit on the cat tower and look out the window at the birds. But what Hugo loves the most is his food. When he would hear our volunteers or employees preparing his food, he would climb back in his kennel and patiently wait for it to be delivered. It wasn’t long before Hugo won over the hearts of all the employees and volunteers at the shelter. I think we would all take him home if we could! He has such a laid back and easy going personality. Add that to his plump, round face and squinty eyes. Who wouldn’t fall in love with him? Don’t you think he looks like a mini bobcat?
Since he came to our shelter in the end of March he has been housed in our isolation room due to his eye infection. Since then, he has been microchipped and gotten his rabies shot. Today, with the support of our loving volunteer Charlene, Hugo made a trip to our general population cat room. He explored and said hello to the other resident cats. Within minutes, he went out to our cat porch, sat on a cat tower, and observed the birds playing on the nearby chair. He even made friends with one of our shy cats, Elsa.
Now that Hugo’s eyes are looking better, he can officially begin the search for his forever home. If you are interested in adopting Hugo, please stop by the shelter during our visiting hours to meet him.
