Zero: Sun conure, yellow and green; unknown sex; unknown age (hence the name Zero… LOL)
Zero is a very sweet stray who most likely was let outside the house, maybe on a porch for some fresh air and found his/her way off premises. So one of the messages here is, if you want to let your pet bird(s) enjoy the sunlight, make sure the enclosure is secured first so they can’t pick the lock or find some other way to escape. Otherwise, Zero is typical of many of the very colorful birds that land at the shelter.
Bounty: Domestic shorthair; brown tabby and white; neutered male; 2 years old
Bounty is a great example of a loving FIV Positive cat that makes a wonderful companion. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is a slow developing virus that affects a cat over many years and does NOT affect humans or other non-feline pets. As long as your FIV cat is the only cat in your home (and some vets even say the only male cat with an emphasis on neutered), everything should be fine. Of course, you’ll need to take extra care to keep your FIV cat healthy, but you’d do that anyway, right? Luckily for whoever adopts Bounty, he was already quarantined at one of MCHS’s partner vets for 6 months and is now super-ready to be adopted. He’s getting great reviews here at the shelter.

Tyler: Border collie/chow chow mix; neutered male; 11 years old
Tyler is a wonderful older gentleman much loved by his former family who is moving out of the area. Otherwise, they would never think of giving up their friend. They describe him as the sweetest, loving dog. He’s housetrained and likes to play with plush toys. Easy-going and calm, he loves to take walks and rarely barks. He knows several obedience commands and tricks, gets along with kids and other dogs (unknown are cats), and sniffs around a new person or environment to get acquainted. Looking for an instant new family member? Tyler’s for you!
Ogden: Staffordshire bull terrier; tan and white; male; neutered upon adoption; 3 years old
You should hear how the Rescue folks here at MCHS talk about Ogden – A-Dorable! Double C: compact and cute. He’s got that short stocky bod … and that face! The staff trainer says he’s amiable, attentive, high-energy, outgoing, people-centered, playful, tolerant, well mannered, and willing to work. Ogden is a very sweet dog! He’s a fast learner and would do well in trick training. He’s been friendly toward other dogs in the yard. Positive reinforcement training would be excellent for him since he’s food-motivated.
