Today’s Happy Tale comes from Ava, who saved Scrappy’s life when she fostered him after he was red alerted here at the shelter. We are always beyond grateful for our fosters. Fosters are a vital part of saving lives! They create much needed space, and give us valuable information about a pet’s personality, which helps them find the right home! It does our hearts good to see Scrappy now spoiled rotten and living the good life! Read what Scrappy’s mom says about his happy story below, and this #PitBullAwarenessMonth, consider creating your own happy tale by saving an at-risk pittie! 💞
Scrappy was my foster, he is now living his best life with his new adopted sister and family! He is living proof that even “last chance” dogs can blossom in the right home and family environment
Finn (formerly known as Scrappy) and his sister Winnie are completely inseparable. From the moment they wake up, to the moment they fall asleep side by side it’s play play play. They love to go to the dog beach together, pretty much every weekend. Turns out he really enjoys the ocean! When he’s not at the beach or at home he enjoys chasing his sister around the park. He’s the happiest dog who is so ready to enjoy his new life! 💗
If you found your furry family member at North Central, please send us your adoption story to share. Or if you’re looking to adopt or foster, message us to find the perfect match! 💌🐱🐶🐰

This total babe is Jack! He’s currently in short term foster, and doing great!! We are hoping to help him find a new foster or adopter in a home (without cats) ASAP so that Jack can stay out of the shelter. Five year old, 50 lbs Jack is a real catch! 🔸Follow this babe @jack_lafosterdog or email his current fosters at asventy@me.com. His current fosters report that Jack:
.
*Is CRATE TRAINED (and actually loves his little “den!”)
*Is a LOW-ENERGY snuggle bug! Couch naps are his fave.
*Has recently learned SIT and working on “Stay”-- good boy! *Is the QUIET type. He’s content to just look out the window and contemplate dog stuff.
*LOVES stuffed animals and squeaky toys! *Is looking for someone to help him work more on his leash walking skills. Jack is eager to learn!
.
We love this boy and want to get him into a new home where he belongs! Message Jack’s fosters today! 💖

Who doesn't love a spunky, confident grandma? Meet Milk, the pocket-sized senior who has us swooning! Milk is 13 years old and 8 lbs of star power. She's happy and confident when on walks at the shelter and, get this, she smiles (she's proud of her grill, even if it's missing teeth!)!! Milk has been at the shelter since coming in October 5, 2019, when her previous owner surrendered her because they had become homeless. Milk's previous owner reported that they had had Milk her whole life, and that Milk had lived with kids, but prefers a home without cats. We think it's past time Milk prances her precious self out of here and into the loving home where she deserves to rest her sweet head. Let Milk be the milk to your cookies. Dip in today and tell her it's time to go home! 🍪💖

Say hello to Bugs! This adorable boy was brought to the shelter for safety when he was just 3 weeks old, after being found alone with degloving injury to his lower lip/ jaw. Thankfully he was able to go into foster care where he could heal and grow into a happy, healthy kitty! Bugs is now ready to find a furever home. Read what Bugs’ foster shared and VISIT THE SHELTER to meet him this weekend!
💗
Bugs loves chin scratches, neck cuddles, and perching near your shoulder to watch you as you browse through your phone. He’s a very curious kitty! He loves to play, he is a hunter at heart - he loves pawing his soft toy mouse across the floor. He gets especially excited when the mouse is tied to a string and moved around by his loving human. The thrill of the chase! ;) He never uses his nails on you though, even when he playfully pounces towards your ankles. All you feel are soft, fluffy paws. He is a sweetheart and will make a great companion for a lucky family!

UPDATE: RESCUED!! 🎉🎉 THANK YOU AGAIN @angelsbarkdogrescue! Still seeking a FOSTER- contact them via angelsbarkdogrescue@gmail.com if you can help! Info for donations in post comments also. 💞
.
RED LISTED--In URGENT need of Rescue or Adoption! Please share!

Hi friend! I am Rita and I URGENTLY NEED HELP!! If you’re looking for a loyal gal to pal around with as your new best friend, come look me over! I’m Rita - a 9-year-old, 64 Lbs., female German Shepherd (and I don’t look my age). I came to the shelter in July as a stray, and I’ve been cooped up here since then. I will say I’m a bit shy. Because of that, I acted quite nervous when I first got here (and still get a little scared in my kennel) but volunteers and staff have worked a lot with me! I have now met lots of humans, and my friends notice I’ve warmed up considerably since I got here. I’m easy to leash and pet now. I have so many humans rooting for me! I’ve met a dog friend here at the shelter, too! Recently, my buddy Chata (#A1872038) and I explored the play yard together (🎥 in post). I’m an amazing girl who just needs a chance to live my best life. I’ve got what it takes to be a super forever dog for the person who admires the wisdom that comes with a dog of a certain age. Is that you? I REALLY NEED HELP NOW! I’m ready to get out of the shelter and into your life today!🙏💗

They call me Ivy here, but I’ve made a note to ask them to call me Blue Ivy. Without getting into that whole Beyonce trademark thing, it’s the perfect name for me, since I’m blue (gray) in color. And, I’m a gorgeous, graceful female, so you see, the name works. They estimate I’m about four-years-old and weigh 71 pounds, but I arrived here as a stray on AUG. 1, 2019, so they don’t really know my back story. They do know I’m fairly easy to leash and I really like to be pet. And I don’t show reactivity to other dogs when we pass by. Also, I do photograph like a star.
If you’re a Beyonce fan, or even if you’re not, I have the bounce and the energy and the looks to qualify as your new dog. I’m Ivy! Come fall in love. 🌟

This polite little guy is Asher. It's not every dog that could pull off a bow tie look, but this charming fella absolutely could, with his dapper smile, and inquisitive looks.  We are over the moon for Asher, and really cannot believe he’s been overlooked at the shelter for ONE YEAR!
Asher certainly notices people! He’s very observant of the people walking by.  He's quick to bow his head to anyone who approaches, as if to say "take me for a walk, I’m sweet!!!” Asher is 63 pounds, and would fit into most homes, and human laps.  Asher was brought in as a stray with a behavioral issue-- but staff and volunteers have only experienced wonderful behavior from this pup. Volunteers say he's on the mellow side at 8 years old, and loves to stick by your side. He'd love a confident human to help build his self esteem, and show him that the world has a place for him to shine. Asher has some vet needs that we really want to see him get help for right away -- he’s on medication for a ruptured ear drum, and appears to have some issues with depth perception, so he should go to a home without too many stairs. It’s past time to get Asher out of his kennel and onto your snuggly couch!  Come meet Asher, and see if you can resist his tricks, or perhaps fall in love, as many of us already have. 💓🐶

We can’t take our eyes off of Buzz! This seal point girl is absolutely gorgeous! She is a friendly, but slightly reserved, girl who welcomes attention from our volunteers. She loves to “make biscuits” when being pet too! Buzz was initially very nervous in the shelter, and is still a bit shy, but we think this sweet and curious girl will flourish in a home! A petite 6-pounds, 3-year-old Buzz will make the perfect lap cat in an apartment or home of any size. Come fall in love with Buzz today! Ask to meet her when you visit.💗 BUZZ #A1875204

They say I’m a six-year-old mixed breed, but if you look at me closely, you’ll see most of my mix is German Shepherd. That, alone, qualifies me as a great watch-dog and also a great care-taker, because one of my ancestors, Buddy, was the first Seeing Eye-Dog. Another ancestor was Bullet, and he was pretty famous back in the day as Roy Roger’s dog (you might have to google Roy). So, you can see,from my DNA, I’m also very trainable, easy-going, and affectionate. Also alert and loyal. Very loyal.  I came in on 08/03/19, as a stray, weighing 54 pounds, and I’ve been patiently waiting for my person. They call me Spunk, because I have some. And I’d love to show you in person. Ask for me by name. Then take me home.

Melo, our (but he could be yours!) handsome and mellow, 6-year-old, Boxer mix, just graduated from the @k9youthalliance training program. While in the 3 week program, with the aid of a student trainer, he fine tuned his obedience and agility skills. GOOD BOY! Read what Melo’s student trainer, Kennedi, shared about their time together  below.
💗
“I’ve learned many things from Melo and I think I can speak for him and say he’s learned from me as well. During training I’ve gained skills like patience, how to be more attentive, and better people skills. One of my favorite class sessions was when we learned the difference between spay and neutering.  It’s important to spay or neuter your pets because there is a big problem with animal overpopulation. There are more pets than there are people to take care of them, so many end up homeless in a shelter. During Expert Panel I was an MC and introduced my classmates.  We answered questions about many topics including dog body language and safety around dogs. I’ve enjoyed watching my dog progress each day even when he has his off days. Melo should be adopted because he’s gentle, obedient, wise, kind, eager to learn, and he loves belly rubs.  He basically lives up to his name! ”
💖
Melo has been at the shelter since 07/05/19. Happiness is a MELO fellow! Visit the shelter to bring home Your New Best Friend today! Please share!

Please help Layla! She has been 48 HOURS/ RED ALERTED!
This girl is just 3 years old, and she has so much life left in her. Poor Layla has had a rough go at things, and is desperately seeking a patient and experienced human who can give her the stability and decompression she needs. Layla weighs 53 lbs, and has been at the shelter since 9/4/19, when she was surrendered because her previous owner was homeless and could not take care of her. He reported that he had Layla since she was a puppy and that she enjoyed pulling him on his skateboard. (What a California girl!) Layla is very nervous here, and often walks with her tail tucked between her legs. Layla’s previous owner also reported that Layla is fearful of other big dogs. At this time, she should go to a home where she can be the only dog, or kept separately until she’s decompressed and an experienced handler can work on slow intros with her. We want to see her walk out of here with someone who will give her the time to show her she can breathe a sigh of relief and relax into her true self. Layla is a beautiful girl who deserves better than the lot she’s been given so far. Layla matters. Please share and PLEDGE for Layla! Rescues need fosters and funds for training in order to help our pets. Layla’s situation is urgent, and we very much hope that a heroic RESCUE will step forward and show this girl it’s time for her, once and for all, to skate all the way home.❣️

This week’s happy tail adoption story comes from Xueyou (and family) who adopted furry friend, Ume, from one of our off-site adoption events (thank you Rosie Bunny Bean for hosting!)! Ume found a loving home and a new bunny bff when she was adopted! 💗Visit the shelter to meet our adorable, adoptable bunnies and please attend our next ‘for bunnies’ event at Rosie Bunny Bean in Highland Park on November 3rd from 12-3! .
“We came in to adopt because we were looking for a companion for our bun, Auska! We have been raising Auska since February of 2019. Auska is a very shy boy and he was also very lonely. We had planned to come to the Rosie Bunny Bean adoption event hoping to find a friend for Auska, and we found Ume! (Formerly Santee). She’s been a real sweetie. She loves kisses and cuddles, and she loves to groom her humans with licking. She’s a great companion and potty trained herself to Auska’s set-up with ease. It’s been great having her! She really eases stress and when you’re having a bad day, she’s right there to take your troubles away with a few kisses ♥️”
.
If you found your furry family member at North Central, please send us your adoption story to share. Or if you’re looking to adopt or foster, message us to find the perfect match! 💌🐱🐶🐰

Make way for Ali. You’re going to want to have this guy in your corner. 😉 After having been at the shelter since 01/22/19, Ali was lucky enough to spend the last couple weeks in a foster home. Thank you fosters for giving our shelter pets a much needed break & helping us gather more info to find their match! Read what his foster shared below and VISIT the shelter TO MEET him ASAP!
💗
“Ali is a 2 1/2 year old, goofy, sweet, and easy-going boy. He LOVES people, and loves love! He is super friendly with all new faces and eager to please. He loves to be close to you, lean in, and get belly rubs (he army crawls across the room to you for them!)! Ali could benefit from further leash training as he is a strong boy, but he learns quickly and has improved greatly since getting more walks while with us. He knows sit, down, and just learned shake! I believe he would prefer a home without cats or small animals. He will make an extremely loyal companion- All he wants is to be loved back!  Whoever gets to adopt him will be very lucky.” 💘

We’re close to Hollywood, you know, and they go crazy over there for photogenic subjects. Like me! And, if you’re looking at my photos, you might agree I have the X Factor. I’m a three-year-old boy weighing in at 77 pounds. Don’t let that fool you though - I’m pretty light on my feet, easy to leash and bathe, and happiest when volunteers show up to take me for a walk. I wag my tail, in fact. The other thing is I sat nicely for the wonderful dog photographer, Rita, because I know a thing or two about the best camera angles. Ever since Mae West asked my namesake to come up and see her some time, I’ve been a movie fan! I’ve been waiting for my close-up since Sept. 19th. I want to be cast as a dog who gets a forever-home of his own. So, let’s make some awesome videos together! I’m ready! And, I do my own stunts. I'm a star-in-the making.🌟 BIG BOY #A1894955

UPDATE: IN FOSTER CARE- message us to meet him!
.
Nearly as pure as the driven snow (whatever that means), my name is Winter. I think I’m a contender for the-best-looking, young-dude-cat in the Shelter. I mean, i’m the type of cat whose looks (and gorgeous eyes) draw attention like nip to a cat. Partly because of my coloring (only a tiny gray spot on the top of my head), but also because I’m not your average Joe. I’m 15 months old, a Domestic shorthair, and I weigh nine pounds. Volunteers say I’m a bit shy, although friendly, and I like to be pet. I’ve been here since July 13, so I’m ready to get out of here, like now! Come see me! I'm In the Cat Room, where you’ll likely Fall for me! I certainly hope so! lI want to get out of here - long before it snows in Maine. Cause it doesn't snow in Southern California. Ask for Winter! ❄️💘 WINTER #A1875016

Sitting pretty. That’s how I am outside in the play yard and when they’re taking glamour shots of me to post on Instagram. I’d take selfies, if I could, but as far as I know, no doggies have ever done that successfully. Having said that, I’ll say I am pretty easy going - even gentle for my age (six years) and my weight (51 lbs). I’ve been here since Aug. 25th, which may not seem like a long time to you - but to me, even in dog months, it seems endless. I’m playful and the volunteers say I’m easy to leash and unleash. What more could you want from a lovable gal like me? I know what more I could want: you to take me home. I think we could make beautiful music together! 🎀

This lil’ elfin creature is Chiquita! Can you say “ears”?! We kind of can’t handle Chiquita’s adorable bat ears and big goofy grin. Chiquita is one happy banana. She loves to get out of her kennel, and really loves to be held. Chiquita is 4 years old, weighs 9 lbs., and has been at the shelter since 9/19/19, when she came in with another small female dog (Rescued). We can’t believe this beautiful girl remains passed over! Come make Chiquita your very own! Ask to meet her when you visit and take her home today! 💝
