Cascades Humane Society is working to help Refugees. Most folks think of people when they hear the word refugee but I am talking about 21 Puppies who have arrived at their shelter in three paths.
- · An abandoned Female Husky mix gave birth to Six Puppies shortly after arriving.
- · Three Border Collie Mix Puppies who were brought in before they were old enough to be separated from their Mom.
- · Eleven Puppies were brought in because the owner was not healthy and could only keep their Mom.
Lisa Bonney is the Executive Director of the shelter and she is reaching out to people for help. While the shelter welcomes all animals and they are doing their best through foster homes because the puppies were too young to be with older dogs when they arrived. Three of the puppies have Special needs, the three Border Collie Mix puppies were very malnourished when they arrived and the rest are doing well generally speaking.
Will be available soon for adoption through the Humane Society Shelter but the cost to getting there is great. Here is an over view of what costs have been so far.
- · Over 20 lbs of formula ($300)
- · Intensive medical care for 2 of the newborns ($150)
- · To provide healthy Pet adoptions routine Medical care (0ver $5,250)
These puppies need your help to get free of the refugee homes they are in and Cascades Humane Society is doing their part. They are a ‘no kill’ shelter which makes this even more important. Part of their plans are to have a community “Puppy Shower”. Be the light in puppies lives, get involved and love them up!
All the information for them, other animals and their Paw Playground is at the Cascades Humane Society website.
In 2013 this shelter helped 825 Animals find homes including Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Birds and others. They truly are more than just for Dogs and cats. They also have a Pet Pantry that has distributed over 2,000 pounds of food helping at least 1,700 animals and impacting at least 150 families. They do this with the help of animal lovers like you.
