A lot of us probably remember the old song "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth". Well, most of our shelter critters have their front teeth, but for a lot of them, the thing they haven't had for far too long is a home of their own and someone to love them.

Some of them, especially the adult kitties, have lingered at the shelter literally for months. Black cats and tabby cats always have a harder time getting adopted, as do the larger black dogs. In shelters that euthanize, these unfortunate dogs and cats are on the "short list" all too often. In our no kill shelter, they just bide their time, hoping the right person will come along.
