Ollie: Foster Home Needed

IMG_3057
Ollie is a very special little guy with very special needs.  This gentleman was relinquished to the Coronado Animal Care Facility in October.  He is a seven year old male beagle mix and weighs just over eight pounds.  This little guy with a quiet and calm demeanor loves to take walks with his humans or just sit beside them and relax.  He is a great companion, already knowing his basic commands and ready to be your obedient best friend.  Little Ollie has been diagnosed with a #5 heart murmur, #6 being the worst.   He also has an enlarged heart, but he is on meds which should help his condition.

  According to an internal medicine veterinarian who has evaluated and treated him, Ollie should do well on his medication for an extended period of time  Right now, PAWS is looking for a foster home for Ollie where his family will be able to care for him and give him the best quality of life that he can expect. A quiet environment without small children would probably be best for Ollie.  In cases like this, PAWS covers all medial expenses.  Open up your home and your heart to this gentle little guy this holiday season and give him a chance to just be a dog for as long as he can.  He will be your trusted companion for the rest of his life.   The Coronado Animal Care Facility is open  between 9:00am and 4:00pm (except holidays) and is located at 1395 First Street at the south end of the Ferry Landing complex.  
If you are interested in fostering Ollie, you must first complete a dog adoption application and meet with a PAWS of Coronado Dog Adoption Counselor. You may fill out the online dog adoption application at pawsofcoronado.org or contact dogadoptions@pawsofcoronado.org

Karly, Bella, Gus, Valentino and Olive?

We’ve got some exciting news! These past couple of days have been just wonderful at Paws. Four dogs have gotten adopted!

First off we have Karly. You may not know who she is because she never made it to the website, but the family who adopted Gus (the cat) has adopted her. Before she was spayed and up for adoption, they saw her and knew she was the one. Once Karly was ready, her new family took her home.

Yesterday, Bella was adopted. She’s been living in a foster home, but her foster family has decided they wanted to keep her forever.

Pepperoni: A Dog For Adoption

IMG_3561
Pepperoni made his way to the Coronado Animal Care Facility as a stray.  Pepperoni is a male Chihuahua.  He is about one year old and only weighs seven pounds.  When he arrived, he was very frightened and apprehensive, but he is becoming more comfortable each day.   This gentle little guy, with the sweet deer-like face, is slowly getting used to his new environment and learning to trust the volunteers and staff that are caring for him.   But once he learns to trust,  this tiny guy has a lot of love to give you and loves nothing more than to be held and loved by his human companions.  When he is excited, he does a twirl before landing in your lap!  He is slowing gaining confidence on his walks but is also very content to just spend some quality time with you.  Because of his size and the fact that he is still timid, a quieter home without small children would be the best for him.  He does ride very well in a car and does like other dogs.    So, if you are looking for a great companion dog that loves nothing more than to warm your lap, please come and meet Pepperoni soon!  The Coronado Animal Care Facility is open  between 9:00am and 4:00pm (except holidays) and is located at 1395 First Street at the south end of the Ferry Landing complex.

5 Things To Consider Before You Adopt Your First Dog

Congrats! You’ve decided that you want to adopt a dog, but you don’t know where to start and what dog would be best for you. Below are five things to consider before you add this new furry friend to your family.

222_2589x2000_all-free-download.com_939054

1.  Choosing the Best Dog for You

You may have always thought you wanted a Labrador, but it’s important that you match your lifestyle with the type of dog you choose. Do you get a lot of physical activity? Do you live in a apartment? Do you have kids? Do you work long hours at work? These are all things you need to consider before you even step into the shelter. Having the right dog that fits your lifestyle will ensure that you and your dog will have many happy years together. Take a short quiz here to find your perfect match!

2. Preparing Your Home

A very important thing before you bring your dog into your home is to make sure it’s dog proof. Here’s a checklist to ensure your home will be ready.

  • Put all cleaners/chemicals on high shelves
  • Block all tiny spaces where your pup can hide (ie. Behind the washer/dryer, cabinets, etc..,)
  • Keep your toilet lid down
  • Hide or move all electrical wires where your dog might be able to reach
  • Move poisonous plants
  • Clean all antifreeze from the floor (One lick can be deadly.)
  • Keep all sharp objects out of reach
  • Keep clothes in closet with doors shut
  • Make sure your outdoor area has no holes where your dog could escape.
  • Move phone wires out of reach
  • Keep in mind chocolate, grapes, and raisins are poisonous to dogs.

3. Selecting the Right Food

Another essential for your dog is picking out the food. Remember, labels don’t always tell the truth. You want to look at the ingredients. In many dog foods, you will see that the first ingredients are often fillers, such as starch or wheat. Instead, your dog needs meat, fish, veggies, vitamins and minerals. Try looking for foods that have meat as the first ingredient.

4. Locating Dog Parks or Pet Friendly Places

One thing about dogs is that they need stimulation from other dogs. Locate some nearby dog parks or some pet friendly places where your dog can play and have fun.

5. Determining Your Budget

Lastly, you need to budget your money. Dogs are more expensive then you think. Be sure to include the cost of food, leashes, collar/harness, toys and vet bills.

Also, be sure to have fun! Owning a dog is a rewarding experience that will bring much happiness and fun for you and your family!
